Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

How can I sync my profile (info box) on all Stack Exchange sites?

In other words, I want to change my profile info box (I mean the empty box on the right to be filled in by user) on one of the sites, and want to copy this info to other SE sites without any hassle.

When editing your profile on one of the sites, you'll see an option "Save And Copy Profile To All Stack Exchange Accounts":

Using that, your changes are pushed to all other accounts, including your user name and profile image.

Your global Stack Exchange profile on stackexchange.com is synchronised with your oldest account. You can trigger that if needed:

  • Click "Network profile" in the top right corner of your profile in any site
  • Click "Sync with oldest profile"

In my case, my oldest profile has no data and I put most of my information in a different profile. What can I do to prevent it syncing and becoming completely blank? –  Andrew Mao Sep 3 '12 at 21:13

Note: you no longer have to click the Accounts tab, with any tab selected the link will be under your About box. –  Lance Roberts Jan 10 '13 at 16:58
    
(That was true, @Sparr, but meanwhile the answer has been edited. Care to delete your comment to prevent confusion? Thanks!) –  Arjan Dec 28 '13 at 15:46
