@KitFox So did we come to an agreement on what part two is?
 
Um, they meet the couple out somewhere socially.
I was going to write it up tonight, but got distracted with other things.
 
ok
so what are you up to tonight
 
Having three conversations simultaneously and trying to act natural about it.
 
I was very upset about it earlier.
 
1:51 AM
hm, I wonder why he left?
 
I have been in touch with him since then. He's one of the current conversations.
 
ah, the WMT refugee room?
 
Yes.

Q: Please migrate my (closed) question to Writers.SE

AbeMy question, Word (or shorter phrase for) "evaluate the relationship between"?, was closed as "off topic" for this site. I think that it is a good question - it has five upvotes and seven answers - that would be on-topic at writers.stackexchange as a properly scoped and framed critique ...

I saw waiwai ping you and your fellow mods about it in the TL, but it doesn't look like anyone ever replied.
(That is, he pinged you when the OP first requested migration, on Aug 4th, before this meta question existed.)

@RegDwightAAA - I don't remember the ping, but I could have missed it, I suppose. Looking right now.
Thanks for the heads-up, this is an interesting issue.
@KitFox @justkt @standback @anybory else here - What do you guys think of this? The question is confusingly written, but it's, in essence, asking about writing a headline. Does this fall under our policy of requests to rewrite a few sentences?
It seems to fall afoul of most of the problems with these kinds of questions, but it'd be nice to find a way to edit it so it makes sense for the site. Headline writing is kind of an art of its own, but one that's hard to describe or delineate.
@RegDwightАΑA - I'm going to say, tentatively, thanks but no thanks. I suspect this isn't a good question for writers, but I'd also like it for us to discuss the issue.
 
2:00 PM
I see. Well perhaps you can just answer or comment on that question on our meta, now that it's out there in the open.
 
@RegDwightAAA - Already done! :)

@NeilFein: I've backed up your answer there with my own.

@standback - I like how you left the OP a possible way to reframe this so it could be asked, even though it'd be an almost entirely different question.
 
@NeilFein: Well, I thought it'd be nice to imply that Writers accepts some questions :P
 
@Standback - There are questions we accept? I thought they were all instantly closed because we're bad people. ;)
 
Of course not. We merely cultivate the impression that there are, so we keep getting questions to close.

@Standback now now. Only ELU closes all its questions. You are just copycats. But hey, perhaps we can team up. Rather than closing everything, we'll just migrate everything to you. That way we get to close all questions and you get to close them all some more. A win-win.
