Just read the email that "the Gadgets Stack Exchange has been closed due to lack of traffic" and "Some of the questions which are appropriate to other Stack Exchange sites have already been migrated to these sites", including this one.

I didn't have an account on this site, so questions I wrote (e.g. After market car stereos with iOS 4/iPod Out support?) aren't linked to my account, as well as up votes I received on that site didn't transfer.

Not sure of this is a bug, feature request or intended design, so I figured I would post a question here.

    Looking into this. Not sure if mods can do it or if I need someone from the SO team to do it.

  • I've got half of that. Looks like I've got a question associated with my account, though no rep from upvotes. Commented Sep 17, 2010 at 8:39

  • Thanks @Slate that might be worth a proper answer or edit to the current one? I haven’t heard anything lately

This is a known issue and we are working on a fix. If you had an account on the destination site at the time of migration all posts should have automatically associated to your new account.
