Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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
