What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

Today I logged in to Data Explorer using my OpenID account, and it didn't fill out automatically my user profile details; or, to be more exact, it filled them in wrongly: it only populated the "login" field, and to do that it took the part before @ of my e-mail address. So, if my address is somename@somedomain.com, my account was shown as somename.

I was able to edit the fields by hand, but could this be automated using the same process used for the other sites?

I just logged in for the first time and got the user name john.doe8. Curious! –  Ether Jun 8 '10 at 18:26
Odd Im grabbing Nickname from the sreg fields and falling back to email. Unlike so Im forcing logins to be unique, it makes it easier to keep track of people. –  waffles Jun 9 '10 at 0:48
Doesn't seem to link in to my other stackoverflow accounts either - even if I click the "copy profile to other accounts" button. Doesn't even show up under the accounts tab. –  evan Nov 12 '11 at 17:26
Is it separate from the SE network somehow? –  Jeff Bridgman Jan 1 at 21:28
