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

I'm new to SO and Stack Exchange in general. I noticed that on MetaStackOverlow, my user id is one of the auto-generated ones, but on SO I have a real user name (Green Giant). But when I go to my profile and click "network profile", the Stack Exchange profile page shows by SO user.

So my question is: Are my accounts already merged/linked, but just show a different user name between SO and MSO, or are they separate and need to be merged?

If the latter, then I'd like a moderator to merge my accounts please.

Your current profile is already linked with Stack Overflow's one.

Go on this page and hit Copy Stack Overflow profile to all Stack Exchange accounts to automatically change your name
