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

Shouldn't my Stack Overflow and Server Fault users be the same? I logged into SF using the same OpenID as I do on SO, and I'm a total new user. Shouldn't my profile at least transfer over?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

If you use the same OpenID, you can copy your profile from one site to the next. Each site has separate points, though. FYI, questions like this belong on Meta ( – Kyle Smith Oct 26 '09 at 19:34

You'll need to associate your accounts and then you can just copy your profile over in the Accounts tab of your target sites profile.

Just a note that Google is a bit of an exception here. They generate a unique openID for you for every site where you use it, and so if you use Google's openID there is no way to have the same openID at StackOverflow that you do at ServerFault or SuperUser.

associate tab advice still applies, though – Jeff Atwood Oct 27 '09 at 1:12
