A good question here was moved to MO for better viewership(probably a good call). But now I think it should be at least closed, and maybe deleted? Discuss.

  • $\begingroup$ proposal: Edit the question to include the MO link and then close it. $\endgroup$ Aug 30, 2010 at 0:01

    $\begingroup$ Modification of Tom's proposal for dealing with duplicates between MO and math.SE. Close the question as a duplicate (of I don't care what). The community user will edit the question to include a link to the other question. Then somebody can edit the question to change the link to the right thing. That way, it looks almost exactly as if the question were properly closed as a duplicate of the question on the other site. $\endgroup$ Aug 30, 2010 at 2:04

    $\begingroup$ I must be forgetting how to read, what are you suggesting Anton, for some reason I cannot parse it. :/ (Note, I fully expect that this is my problem, not yours.) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Why close it, actually? $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ In general, see meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/310/… and especially the comments there. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @BBischof: Sorry for the confusing language. Tom suggested, "edit the question to include the MO link and then close it." I was just pointing out that (until Isaac's suggestion is implemented) it works out better if you first close the question and then edit it to include the MO link $\endgroup$ Sep 1, 2010 at 4:08
  • $\begingroup$ @Anton, thanks, I am not sure why I had such difficulty understanding. $\endgroup$
