How did I just get a Great Answer for a question that has been removed for editing?

Asked by Snarp (11249points) April 9th, 2010

A timing glitch in the Great Answer database? Or did a moderator do it?

Maybe someone gave you a Great Answer before it got pulled.

If one user had a tab open with the question before it got removed for editing, they can still give you a GA, even after the question was removed.

I’ve done it before; I had a tab open but then ran from the computer to answer a phone call, came back and gave some GA’s, and then closed the tab and realized the question had been removed.

@jfos It got pulled hours ago.

Yeah, you can still get a Great Answer for an answer from a removed question as long as it’s before it was removed…

…or what jeff said.

A glitch in the Matrix. It means an agent will be knocking at your door any second now.

Maybe your answer was so great that it was automatically awarded based on predetermined great answer requirements.

Oops, sorry, missed that link on the question page that I assume makes a question automatically Meta.

You didn’t…

It’s all a dream.

Just because it was removed doesn’t mean it wasn’t a great question. Not sure how you could have managed it, though.

Not quite forbidden but warm and fuzzy even when you are a mod getting it.
