I'm contemplating different accounts for each subfield of a subject, to streamline organization.

Imagine that I prefer this account to focus on antinatalism at Philosophy SE. If I make a new one for questions on euthanasia at Philosophy SE, how can I transfer some questions on my account (the euthanasia ones) to the new account?

    Consider the downvotes as "You shouldn't do it", i.e. people disagree with the idea of doing what you ask for, regardless if it's possible or not. – Shadow Wizard is Ear For You May 1 '19 at 11:18

    Imagine people being able to transfer bad questions to a dump account, and keep asking more of them. Simple way to evade a question ban, if this could be done. – fbueckert May 1 '19 at 13:31
  • @fbueckert Oh! I didn't think of that. – Edge May 2 '19 at 4:09

No You can't. Under most circumstances you cannot selectively change ownership of a post.

In theory you could merge accounts but not selectively split off accounts. The one situation where attribution to a question is changed is when there's an incorrect merge (which happened once), or some serious account messups (but that rarely happens and was good fun).

I suspect this literally would involve a member of staff poking around and editing posts in the database, and would probably be more trouble than its worth.
