A few weeks ago I asked a question about the F-4 Phantom on behalf of my daughter. To encourage both her interest in aviation and also her interest in English, I have capitulated to her requests and opened a SE account for her: Happy Phantom. I will be monitoring (actually, I'll be the one typing) her activity, at least for the first few years! She does not have access to (or knowledge of) the account password.

Could her question and related answers, rep, and comments be moved from my account to her account? Thank you!

    $\begingroup$ This is just SO cool! Way to be an awesome father and encourage your daughter's curiosity. I hope I can do the same if/when I have kids. :-) $\endgroup$

It's not something we typically do, in fact it's not even something we allow a normal moderator to do because it's essentially rewriting history and moving reputation around.

I'll reassign the question, but with a couple of warnings:

  1. This is the one reassignment you get. If you post under the wrong account in the future, you'll just have to live with it, or you can delete the post and re-post under the right account.
  2. Do not use one account to upvote the other. That's essentially sockpuppeting, and if a moderator notices, then both accounts are likely to be suspended, and the votes will be reversed.

There you go. Have fun.

    $\begingroup$ Thank you Bret! It means a lot to her, and I will be sure to explain also why we do not upvote one another. Have a terrific week! $\endgroup$
