Many users on Meta SO are being given full credit on their user page for being members for 10 or 11 months. I'm a bit jealous. Maybe I associated my accounts incorrectly or something because I'm only being given credit as being a member for a few days. Should I be getting full credit on my user page like the other users with regards to how long I've been a member of the SO community (i.e. 11 months)?
Some of us got auto-migrated when the site was created.
Actually, i believe most active accounts were initially auto-migrated. Then came the introduction of the account association feature, and the deletion of accounts that hadn't been associated already.
I suspect one or more of the SO developers understands how things really work in the fallout from that whole mess, but suffice to say: if you weren't already active on Meta when it happened, it's too late now...
Edit: they've apparently fixed this now - everyone gets the more recent, "real" join dates...
