Wrong user when logging into Data Explorer
Are user accounts on Data.StackExchange and StackExchange two different entities?

I just created an account on data.stackexchange (exactly the same way I did on other stackexchange sites) using my gmail account, although it found my account ok, my username didn't come through - it created a new username Jon.doeXXXX.

Is this a bug or does data.stackexchange not use my main account (it does not show up under my accounts list)?
