What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

Now that the Stack Exchange network of sites is rapidly expanding, it would be nice to be able to disassociate a single (or multiple) SE sites from your Stack Exchange profile -- ideally to partition your global profile into sub-profiles.

As an example, some sites may be related to your professional career and you wouldn't necessarily want your questions/answers on other (hobby, personal) SE sites to be reflected in your public profile (e.g. if you share a link to a programming question that you posted to your work colleagues).

Is there a way to do this? As far as I can see you can only disassociate ALL sites, or associate ALL sites, but there is nothing in between.

Ideally I would like to see the following:

  • Use the same Open ID on all sites
  • Share the same global inbox across all sites
  • Provide fine tuning of how your accounts are associated, e.g.:
    • IT-related (Stack Overflow, Server Fault, Super User, ...)
    • Hobby-related (Home brewing, Gardening, ...)

People who looked at your Stack Overflow profile could see that you are also a member of SF and SU, but not that you were a member of the hobby-related sites. Your hobby-related profiles would show no link with your IT-related profiles.

As far as I can tell, one of the two options mentioned here has been removed in the 2 years since this was posted (you can't even dissociate all site accounts anymore), making this an even more worthwhile request. –  A.M. Aug 3 '13 at 15:12
