I answered this meta question

And it was migrated to here, but I have been dissociated with the answer!

How do I get my name back on that answer?

This will be fixed in a build rolling out in a few minutes.

A bug with migrations to child metas in general (they're relatively very rare) was the root cause here. The user lookup was basically FUBARed for everyone in this case. This build fixes that issue and a few possible others that I've yet to actually see in the wild.


I did what @Mat said in his comment --

Did you try logging out of meta.SU & logging back in? I think that (or just the time it took to do that possibly) fixed something like that for me once.

Which surprisingly worked!
