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

Using an OpenID registration for each site, entering the profile information, etc., is a cumbersome process. Is there any way of registering with the various sections, only filling out one profile, and simply select "add this to my registered SO sites?"

Having a list of registered sites in profile information (or elsewhere) for management (remove registration, check current questions, etc., like a dashboard interface) would be nice too.

I've used this site for finding answers to questions for quite a while now, but the feature set has gotten so wonderful that I have no choice but to add this to my list of accounts. Seems like, with all the different SO sections here, dealing with all the different ones would be cumbersome without some form of dashboard.

If my "noob-ness" has caused me to miss a feature, please forgive me and point me in the correct direction.

When you register on a new site, if you use the same openid as you used on another site, the system will auto-associate your account. This means that your profile details will be copied over automatically for you.

There is an accounts tab in your profile that lists all of the sites in the network that you have registered on.

In addition, if you ever make a change to your profile, you can go to the bottom of your accounts tab in your profile and choose to copy your profile to your other associated accounts.
