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

I see a "Copy Area51 Profile To Related Accounts" button on Somebody Else's Profile.

enter image description here

Here's the problem. ;)

If you want to become a StackStalker, yeah, I guess it's "great"... – Mateen Ulhaq May 3 '11 at 0:46
    
@muntoo, do you imagine it would copy their profile to yours? or copy their profile to theirs? (as if they had pressed the button) – davidsleeps May 3 '11 at 0:50
    
@davidsleeps Are you going to try it? :) One minute later: StackExchange crashes. All data lost. Skynet imported. – Mateen Ulhaq May 3 '11 at 0:53
    
These reports should be posted on discuss.area51.stackexchange.com; there is a tag to use for Area 51 issues (area51-meta). – kiamlaluno May 3 '11 at 1:02
    
Those buttons don't do anything, though; they keep to return an error. They should not be visible if users are not visiting their own profile page, that is true. – kiamlaluno May 3 '11 at 1:04

@kiamlaluno Actually, A51 questions are permitted on MSO, as per our FAQ. In fact, there was a discussion about whether it belonged on discuss (which was supposed to be about specific proposals only), and the consensus was that MSO was where such questions belonged. – waiwai933 May 3 '11 at 1:26
    
@waiwai933 I was referring to this Robert Cartaino's answer. – kiamlaluno May 3 '11 at 1:48
    
Also, you can tell it is Somebody Else's Profile because it says java developer. 1) I use proper English. 2) I write paragraphs; not just two words. 3) It's JAVA!!! 'Nuff said. – Mateen Ulhaq Oct 21 '11 at 5:15

Oops! The button has been removed. Thanks for that. (For the record, clicking the button on someone else's profile led to a 404.)
