I voted to close a question (unable to find the link, something about accessing Oracle database tables from Python) that I initially thought was off-topic because there was no explicit GIS aspect mentioned in the question or the first answer.
However I subsequently added an answer listing several ArcGIS-specific methods to do the same thing.
Nevertheless the question seems to have disappeared without a trace, although I have read that 10k+ rep users can still see them. So:
- What happened to that question?
- Can I "un-vote" to close a question?
- Should an on-topic answer to an off-topic question (at least at first glance) be considered before deleting/migrating/closing a question?
