What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 127 Stack Exchange communities.

The accounts tab of meta user profiles currently says:

While the network is being migrated, account assiciations to Meta have been disabled.

I really need to find a meta user's other accounts. How can I do this?

This is possible via the API. Go to (replace 147532 with the user's meta user ID):

http://api.meta.stackoverflow.com/1.0/users/147532?type=jsontext

The find the association_id:

"association_id": "96cd77c9-6749-488d-a80d-0b30a9587b60",

Then go to (replace 96cd77c9-6749-488d-a80d-0b30a9587b60 with the association ID):

http://stackauth.com/1.0/users/96cd77c9-6749-488d-a80d-0b30a9587b60/associated?type=jsontext

The IDs of their various accounts will be listed.

your link requires the SO user ID, not the meta ID (tested with my meta vs my SO ID) –  Tobias Kienzler Oct 19 '10 at 7:38
    
@Tobias: Sorry, that was meant to be meta.stackoverflow. Fixed. –  Gelatin Oct 19 '10 at 18:02
