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 had an question transferred from Stack Overflow to Super User (because I did not even know that Super User existed). The question was answered quite well on Super User. When I came back and saw the transfer, and linked my account, I was surprised and pleased to see that the moved question was automatically linked to my account.

This isn't really a question. This is more a 'wow, great job'. This is one of the best designed websites I know with regards to proper handling of accounts, authentication, and user customization. Well done.

For all we know the codebase is ugly, hacky, and smells of sulphur. I care not; the product is good ;-p – Marc Gravell Dec 18 '09 at 22:12
@ChrisF The users are great, but I was specifically talking about the product in this example. The 'users' don't properly code it so that a separate website with a separate userbase automatically syncs transferred posts to an account that doesn't even exist yet. That's the code, and that's what I was praising. – Myrddin Emrys Dec 18 '09 at 23:27

Not much is said about what the code base really entails yet..... and they most likely will not reveal much due to the stackexchange product.

But, I believe this is the first time in a while meta has seen a positive non-rant thank you. So props to you on being appreciative.
