> RE: revisions

What happens if something is revised on SE AFTER I import it here? What happens if new answers (specifically with a positive reputation) are added to my questions? If I revise content here, is there any way to automatically propagate that back to SE (i.e. can a "bot" submit a revision request on SE)?

Could there be a way, if we are the Q or A provider, to still include where the Qs and As came from? I typically get annoyed at "aggregation" sites (in particular news aggregators) where I have no idea where something appeared first. So, I'd personally still like readers of my stuff know which of my Q&As originated from SE vs here.

> RE: ... mapped links between SE and TA ...

If I have content on StackOverflow, SuperUser or CodeReview that is database-related, can I still import it into databases.TA? Or are there plans for adding categories that correspond to those SE subsites and I should just wait for those to be created before attempting to link non- dba.SE stuff?

There is no ongoing 'syncing' with SE after import; We agree there needs to be a way to get back to the SE post, and you can now import from SO to databases.ta.

   Nothing at all happens in this case — importing posts is a one-time copy of whatever is there at the time of import, not a permanent link between the SE post and the post here.

   Yes, this needs to be made more obvious, at the very least with a link on the [post history page](https://topanswers.xyz/answer-history?id=925).

   See this other post for more details:

   We have added SO as a source for databases.ta (alongside dba.se), and can add other SE sites on request to individual communities here (there are some other obvious cases such as AskUbuntu and U&L for *nix).

I'll let you know in case  I find any

Thanks a lot! These 6-8 minutes reaction times are amazing!

you can't yet link your SO profile to your tex.ta profile — that is on the todo list
Jack Douglas
we have only tested it on databases.ta so far though so there may be bugs…
Jack Douglas replying to samcarter
it was this much trouble: `insert into source(community_id,sesite_id,source_is_default) values(4,6,false);`, i.e. none at all :)

@Jack If it is not too much trouble, could you please add stackoverflow.com as import source to tex.ta? I have a couple of hundred tex answers there and some of them might be useful enough to import
