What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I wasn't sure what wording to choose when searching, so this may have been asked before. After a question on SO was asked, and I answered it, the question was moved to CR. In the past, I remember that accounts were auto-created, but this doesn't seem the case any longer, as my name under the question is grey.

I wondered whether when I create a new account on CR, I could connect that to these existing answers, if possible. I already have an SE account.

If you create a new account on CR that's associated with your Stack Overflow account, you'll automatically take ownership of your migrated answer.

Basically, just make a new account on CR and use one of your existing OpenID log-ins.

True, this will also give you +100 rep in the new account to have a good starting point. (As far as I know this requires you to have at least one account with over 200 rep in one of the other sites, to prove you're worthy - in the OP case it holds true) – Shadow Wizard Jan 18 '12 at 13:52
Worked like a charm, I could've just tried it to find that one out. Thanks! – Abel Jan 18 '12 at 23:51
