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

While filling out my profile on Careers 2.0, I wanted to link to one of my top answers and got the following error:

enter image description here

The link I pasted clearly is on a StackExchange site ( but the error states that my answer does not lead to a StackExchange answer.

I think the cause for the error is that is still running on the old/original StackExchange 1.0 platform. (There currently is an ongoing discussion within the BioStar community whether we should migrate towards the StackExchange 2.0 platform.)

In the same vein, while adding Stack Exchange Accounts, there is no way for me to link to my BioStar account while that is for my career field the most relevant account.

In my opinion, if you still allow sites to continue using the StackExchange 1.0 platform, then you should make your current products backwards compatible with that platform.

You're right that you can't include BioStar on your careers profile because it's an SE 1.0 site.

Sorry, but we aren't planning on supporting this. If/When BioStar decides to become an SE 2.0 site all of its data will become available to careers via the StackExchange API and you'll be able to include answers and accounts on your profile.
