Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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

It seems that if a question is migrated, the asker's name doesn't get highlighted when he/she posts comments. For example:

http://superuser.com/questions/43635/gui-ftp-program-capable-of-using-public-private-keys

See Sarteck comments on the question and answers.

Until they associate their accounts and the system knows who is actually asking the question, it won't show.

DisplayName isn't something unique, but the UserID is, and while the question and comment both share the same DisplayName, without the unique user ID, you can't be certain that they're one and the same.

Okay, that makes sense. So, does it work if they have associated their accounts? – pkaeding Sep 19 '09 at 2:32
    
Wait and see, but it should do. – random Sep 19 '09 at 2:33

The openids have to be properly associated between the two sites. This is done via the "accounts" tab on the user page.

Once the accounts are associated, the user will re-own any migrated questions.
