  Could the author of this post be changed?

+ 1 like - 0 dislike

This question was auto-deleted on Physics.SE, and therefore I wrote the question from a screenshot that was provided to me by Nathaniel on meta.P.SE. The authors of the posts need to be changed. 

The question author should be "user34039". The answer author should be "Andrew". The comments don't really matter so much.

Also  /8407 has been incorrectly attributed to UnknownToSE, while it should be attributed to Sam (SE).

@dimension10 It seems that incorrect user attributions happen from time to time. Instead of trying to adapt the import plugin to all possible cases, I decided to write a new plugin for super-admins, which enables to correct such situations. In contrast to manual changes directly in the database, this plugin also corrects the rep of the affected users. Could you once try to correct both users mentioned in this thread to see, if you come clear with this new plugin? Its name is "Correct User".

@polarkernel Thanks, it works!
