Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 have my SO, Meta and Area 51 accounts 'linked', but not my MathOverflow, even though I used the same OpenID account for all of them? Why isn't MathOverflow also 'part of the family' ?

MathOverflow is a Stack Exchange 1.0 site, which is not technically linked to The Stack Overflow Trilogy, nor Stack Exchange 2.0.

So I have to ask MO to 'upgrade'? – Jacques Carette Jun 19 '10 at 14:45
@Jacques That will be an option for MO, but it looks like from their meta discussion (at that they will not be moving to 2.0 because there are fairly major changes to the administration of sites. – waiwai933 Jun 19 '10 at 15:04
The current status is that MO is optimistic that we'll be able to migrate, but it depends on negotiations with the the SE people which hasn't fully happened yet. – Noah Snyder Jun 19 '10 at 15:45
There is a Mathematics proposal which has reached the commitment phase in Area51, btw. – Senseful Jun 19 '10 at 17:40
@eagle clearly the site should be called – Rosinante Jun 19 '10 at 19:02
