Post on behalf of another user


(Mihai Barbulescu) #1

As admin would be helpful to post a question on behalf of another user in case the question is migrated from a different source (e.g. a private board, Q&A only system (SO rules :slight_smile: ) etc ).

You can already impersonate users as an admin so this is already possible.

What I would like to see is a staff function that reassigns ownership of a post from one user to a different one. This comes in handy in a lot of different circumstances.

I’d love to see this as well. Is this on the current roadmap?

As an admin, you can reassign ownership of a post to any other user, thanks to @riking.

It’s in a little unusual of a place for now (I blame me), but do

  • Topic-level admin wrench
  • Select Posts
  • Select the post(s) you want to change ownership on
  • Change ownership
