What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 130 Stack Exchange communities.

I have changed my user name (from MByD to Binyamin Sharet), and pressed the Copy profile to all Stack Exchange network accounts and now, when I look at my profile, under accounts I see 0 accounts and the text You have no other accounts on the Stack Exchange network. Is it normal?

Update
After going to the accounts tab in the network profile, it got OK. So now I can't reproduce, but still...

I've gotta assume this just triggered the associations to rebuild for some reason, and... it took a few minutes. –  Shog9 Dec 18 '11 at 3:08
    
@NineShogsShogging makes sense, but shouldn't it be triggered as I change it / Copying the profile? –  MByD Dec 18 '11 at 3:11
    
Yeah, but processes that take a while tend to be queued up and processed outside of the normal page request process on SE. I can't say for sure this is one of those things, but I wouldn't doubt it - especially since it has to happen externally to any one site (the only site where it'd be appropriate to integrate would be stackexchange.com, which may be why you got your associations back after visiting that). –  Shog9 Dec 18 '11 at 4:23

There was a problem with a specific server supporting the stackauth backend (which hosts the accounts APIs internally) at the time you had this issue - it's been corrected now.

You see, every once in a while NY-WEB04 LOSES ITS DAMN MIND and can't see the freaking database server (NY-DB01 in this case), we don't know why. However, this now being the second major incident of the exact same type means it warrants a lot more investigation, we'll be taking a hard look at NY-WEB04 this week.
