Which account owns a board or workspace?

It appears the answer is "The last administrator".

I have two accounts, many years old, both free (one for personal, one for business).  Each account has multiple workspaces, and multiple boards in workspaces.   There are a few personal boards I need to see at work, and a couple work boards I need to see at home.

I'm trying to reorganize better with the new Workspace paradigm, but I can't find a way to identify which boards and workspaces belong to which account.  It appears the number of boards per workspace is different in the accounts, presumably from grandfathering-in different over the years.

So it seems the number of boards I can have per account will depend on if I move a board from a personal to a work workspace, but none of the boards and workspaces seem to have an owner attributes.

While experimenting, I created a new workspace in account A, move some boards into it from A, then from account A removed myself from the workspace just created (after making my other self admin).   I think the new workspace is entirely gone from account A, and the two boards now only accessible from account B.

Is that correct? If so it appears boards and workspaces don't "belong" to anyone in particular, but instead are "owned" by whomever is the last administrator for the board.

@Bob Hernon unless you're on Enterprise, there is no real "owner" of a board, workspace or account, so your finding is correct.
