Possible to change the comment author inside an issue?

Hi :wave:t2:, everyone,

We are building an open-source WordPress hosting company with a focus on privacy, and currently, use Basecamp to manage and discuss company decisions.

However, recently, we decided to leave Basecamp altogether and move all these discussions to our public instance of Gitea. We want to keep all conversations public, kinda like what Gitlab does.

I am moving everything manually. Still, I don’t want all comments to be made under my user, I would prefer to map the comments and issues to the proper authors in the company — can’t really ask them to copy and paste their previous comments though, it would take forever.

Is there a way for me, as the administrator of the instance, to make this change? I am guessing there is no GUI option for this, so I would need to dive into the database itself, but maybe someone already did this at some point and can help me speed up the process.

We use MySQL as the database drive if that matters.

Thanks in advance! :slight_smile:
