I have accounts in close to 10 Stack Exchange powered sites. I want to change my nickname in all the sites. Is there a way I can do it from one page that would reflect in all of the Stack Overflow/Stack Exchange sites ?


You can edit your profile on one account, go to the accounts tab of your profile, then scroll to the bottom of the page. You'll see three buttons – you can click the first one (Copy X profile to all Stack Exchange accounts) to then push the changes to all your accounts.

    Why the drama? Why no Edit button stack-whatever-flow ? – Blue Clouds Feb 23 '16 at 13:07

This changed recently. There's a tab at the top of your profile:


This links to https://stackoverflow.com/users/edit/current.

To save to all the sites, click the "Save and copy changes to all Stack Exchange communities" button at the bottom:

    I don't see "Edit Profile&Settings" anymore. I want to edit the description of the profile. Maybe also the photo. – android developer Jun 23 '19 at 7:46

    Just checked and it's still there – Ben Jun 24 '19 at 15:21
  • Sorry I meant the phase after that. After clicking on "Edit Profile&Settings", I couldn't see a way to change the information. But, now that I've checked again, for some reason it's there. Very odd. I am sure I tried it before. OK I give you +1 for checking :) – android developer Jun 24 '19 at 16:08
