Can we migrate existing Technet/MSDN rewards, points to Microsoft Q&A

Seniors who contribute in MSDN, Technet forums have lot of reward points, medals etc.
Looks like, everyone needs to start from 0 on this new forum.

Is there any way we can use existing rewards from existing forums in here?

Edit:

Just FYI, a feedback has been posted and the status is "On Roadmap" currently.

As per the below quota, all users will be migrated, and the migration process will break down into multiple phases that would be completed by mid-2020!

A migration of a resource this size is a massive undertaking. To ensure a smooth transition and minimize any disruption for users, we’ve broken down the migration into multiple phases. The goal is to complete the migration by mid-2020.

No, customers will not lose points or badges. In early 2020, Microsoft will introduce the ability to link their Microsoft Q&A profile with MSDN and TechNet forums profile.

I'm sure that will be part of the plan at some point.

@SSengupta-4080 is right. It is in our roadmap to allow you to bring your reputation from MSDN and TechNet into the Q&A profile. You will not lose your points and badges.

What is the current status of this?
Do I need to link the accounts manually?

Still a work in progress from what I've read. Taking them longer than they expected.
