What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

I found that this user (Culip) had a question migrated to Stack Overflow, but his User Name in the comments in the Answers section was not highlighted or clickable.

This threw me for a bit of a loop, as I use the highlighting to quickly glance to see where the author commented on answers.

Unfortunately, I am unsure if this happened because the comment was there before or after the migrate.

Here is a link to the question on Stack Overflow.

SO Highlight-Click Issue

This is correct; that user does not exist on SO until such time as they choose to create an account there.

Thus, there is nothing to link to, and the post has no real owner.
