When I change my user name and / or description, I can copy to other accounts to change all my StackExchange sites simultaneously.

But my ID is not changed on Area 51 Discussion, nor Meta SciFi.

Update: my ID is also not updated on the main StackExchange site (or rather, it is in my name on my ID page, but not in the bar at the top of the screen).

It looks like Area 51 wasn't properly setting a bit to indicate that the profile was changed. I just fixed the bug, and manually set the bit, so your profile changes should be copied to Area 51 Discussion within an hour.

  • Yup, it turns out this bug wasn't constrained to just Area 51. It's been fixed network-wide, and we just kicked off a profile-sync of all meta profiles (except A51 Discussion profiles, which will be synced later today).

  • Hi Emmett - did you notice the change I made to the question? Another issue found, I think. Commented Oct 11, 2011 at 10:22
  • No reply, but it appears to have been fixed since my comment. Commented Oct 17, 2011 at 9:56
