I just signed up in meta.stackoverflow.com and created an account using my OpenID profile. In the end of my registration I think there was a question to "connect" this profile with my other one in the main stackoverflow.com. However, I believe when I registered there it was simply with my Google mail and not with OpenID so the system rightly said that it couldn't find the respective profile/account on stackoverflow.com.
- Is it possible to connect these two accounts now?
- What are the advantages, if any?
- Since my OpenID is registered on the same mail (Google) shouldn't this have happpened automatically anyway?
