I was using multiple SO sites,like many others, under my one email address. Later I decided to break one my account on one SO site (lets call it X.SE) because I did not want to have public profile on that account. The SO staff helped me create a separate account, with some restrictions, that is

  • I must not login using my old email address. If I do my account may automatically get merged again.
  • I will lose some of my important gadgets that I worked hard for.

Now I understand this feature is not fully supported and I am fine with. But the problem I am facing now is when I chat on this site X.SE, my SO username is shown instead of my X.SE user name. Can this be fixed at least so I can stand independent on that site and get invoved in healthy discussions?

The chat is automatically associated with the account with the highest reputation.

You can reassign the site in your chat profile.

Example

  • OK, this is helpful but the problem I faced here is when I go to site X.SE chat profile, it allows me to change nick to my other SE site,but not site x.SE. Other than that, the answer is very helpful. – Dave Apr 3 '13 at 21:28
  • @Dave do you have more than 20 reputation on the target site? – Madara Uchiha Apr 4 '13 at 15:00
  • @Dave: Which site do you want? I'll try using my mod powers to change it for you. Is it Skeptics? – Madara Uchiha Apr 4 '13 at 15:47
  • @Dave: Oh, it's an entirely different user? You can't associate this user with another user in chat. – Madara Uchiha Apr 4 '13 at 15:55
  • Come to chat by that user. I'll help you from there descretely. You can delete the private comments. – Madara Uchiha Apr 4 '13 at 15:57
  • @MadarUchiha Thank you a lot for your help! – Dave Apr 4 '13 at 20:17
