What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I recently got my StackExchange DataExplorer Account. Why doesn't show up on my normal account under "Accounts"?

Is StackExchange DataExplorer somehow special?

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for people studying math at any level and professionals in related fields.

For what it is worth. It doesn't show for me either. Also, since this is not a question specifically about Math.SE, I'll migrate it to Meta.SO where it'd be more visible to those who knows what's going on. – Willie Wong Feb 16 '12 at 14:42
This is normal. SEDE is open-source and doesn't have account association. See this answer and this one. – Pops Feb 16 '12 at 14:49

The data explorer isn't as tightly integrated into the network as the Q&A sites,, and Area 51 are. This is , for a couple reasons.

  1. Data Explorer is an open source project, tight integration with our login system becomes complicated accordingly
  2. Unlike the other sites, your activity on isn't really likely to be of much interest to other members of the community
  3. It'd be a really weird fit display wise, Area 51 is already a bit odd out but Data.SE is really wildly different

"...but as soon as we add voting, comments, and flagging to queries, and reputation to voting activity, we'll get right on integrating it with the accounts and flair." is what you want to say, right? – Adam Davis Feb 16 '12 at 17:42
@AdamDavis if by "we" you mean "anybody but me", then sure why not. – Kevin Montrose Feb 16 '12 at 17:46
@AdamDavis Actually, with regards to the comments... – Tim Stone Feb 16 '12 at 17:53
