Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When I change my user name and / or description, I can copy to other accounts to change all my StackExchange sites simultaneously.

But my ID is not changed on Area 51 Discussion, nor Meta SciFi.

Update: my ID is also not updated on the main StackExchange site (or rather, it is in my name on my ID page, but not in the bar at the top of the screen).

It looks like Area 51 wasn't properly setting a bit to indicate that the profile was changed. I just fixed the bug, and manually set the bit, so your profile changes should be copied to Area 51 Discussion within an hour.

Indeed they are, thx. – Wikis Sep 28 '11 at 5:16
Same for Meta SciFi – Wikis Sep 28 '11 at 9:11
Yup, it turns out this bug wasn't constrained to just Area 51. It's been fixed network-wide, and we just kicked off a profile-sync of all meta profiles (except A51 Discussion profiles, which will be synced later today). – Emmett Sep 28 '11 at 19:18
Thanks for the quick response! – Wikis Sep 28 '11 at 19:24
Hi Emmett - did you notice the change I made to the question? Another issue found, I think. – Wikis Oct 11 '11 at 10:22
No reply, but it appears to have been fixed since my comment. – Wikis Oct 17 '11 at 9:56
