faq add tag
On my profile page I can [link to an existing SE account](https://topanswers.xyz/meta?q=409#a647) ([except on meta](https://topanswers.xyz/meta?q=1444)).

What advantages does this offer me?
Top Answer
Linking your account has two main advantages:

- if posts from your SE user are imported, they show up as your  own posts here. This means you will find them in the list of your questions/answers in your profile and you will get notifications if someone else edits them or posts comments.

- there have also been cases in which users forgot to save their topanswers key and had to create a new account. The link to SE helped to prove that they are the same user and the accounts could be merged.

Enter question or answer id or url (and optionally further answer ids/urls from the same question) from

Separate each id/url with a space. No need to list your own answers; they will be imported automatically.
