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 I acknowledge and appreciate the initiative involved in scanning a users GitHub page for new repos, the followup email "inviting" me to update my SOC profile to reflect the new repo ends up reading more like a creepy stalker.

The simile here, while humorous, is annoying and counts as one strike against Careers. The question remaining is whether there are 2 or 3 strikes per out in this game. – penryu Jul 18 '12 at 21:04
@gobernador: I'm seriously creeped out right now. – Robert Harvey Jul 18 '12 at 23:44

Update: We no longer send this email at all!

We're going to tweak the email to not be so...stalkerish.

We do prefer (and users have responded positively to date) the personalized calls to update your profile. If you receive one, you won't receive the more generic nudge email we send out every three months.
