# migration: post ownership lost through multiple migrations

When going through several migrations the user owning the post may loose the ownership. E.g. if user X has profiles on sites A and C but not B, and one of his posts on A is migrated to B and then to C, X looses the ownership of the post although he has a profile on C.

Here is an example:

• Community mods can fix such cases, but obviously an actual bugfix would be prefered. May 30, 2012 at 10:12
• @Raphael, they can't. May 30, 2012 at 14:08
• They have merged "grey" users with actual users on cs.SE before; is there a difference here? May 30, 2012 at 14:42
• @Raphael, the problem is there is no user to be merged, check the answer's owner. May 30, 2012 at 17:19
• That's why regular mods can't, but they can. It's amusing how reluctant you are to trust me when I say: they did it before. I guess it's more like assigning the answer to a user. Just ask them in TL. May 30, 2012 at 20:09
• @Raphael, by community mods I thought you mean us not SE mods. I will ask them, thanks. (It is amusing how much you interpret people's actions. :) May 30, 2012 at 21:44
