comment What kinds of formatting can be used in custom flag text?
In fact there is, @sphanley. I may even have linked directly to it in the answer below which we are now conversing!

comment What kinds of formatting can be used in custom flag text?
Shorthand links are predefined symbols you put between square brackets that expand into full links. For instance, [help] -> [help], [beer.se] -> [beer.se].

comment Misleading "migrated to" message from MSE to MSO
This is why I usually just delete questions when I migrate them from MSE to MSO. Just kidding - I do that because the tool I use does it automatically and I'm too lazy to override it. But it is a nice bonus.

comment How should I use FormatMessage() properly in C++?
Excellent point, @Andrei - and indeed, even if the error is a Win32 error, this routine will only succeed if it's a system error - a robust error-handling mechanism would need to be aware of the source of the error, examine the code before calling FormatMessage and perhaps query other sources instead.

comment Why was my edit flagged as "destructive"
You could always re-submit the edit with a longer description as I suggested, @John. If it gets rejected again, screw 'em - post your own answer.

comment Why was my edit flagged as "destructive"
Whether or not the question matters can depend significantly on what the edit is changing. But I tend to agree - in some other review queues, we do show the question (below the answer when an answer is being reviewed) - that might be a good idea here as well.
