I opened up the tag to clear it out. I came across two question that I could not edit:

Not only that but I cannot vote to reopen or delete.

Both questions say "comments disabled on deleted / locked posts", but neither has the locked banner.

Are these questions actually locked?

1 Answer 1


A question that has been migrated from another site and then closed counts as a rejected migration and will be automatically locked. At the same time, the question is unlocked (but not reopened) on the original site.

MSO has an outstanding (as in not completed) request to display the lock banner.

Given that the OP in both cases never created an account on EL&U and the closures were not outrageously incorrect, I have deleted both questions.

  • The MSO request has been implemented: the migration banner now says "migration rejected", and explains that the post can be edited/reopened on its original site.
