Being a Stack Exchange evangelist, when my grandma had a cooking question, I signed her up for Seasoned Advice. She got the following joining notification:

Welcome to stack overflow

Notice the "Welcome to Stack Overflow!" message. People joining the non-SO sites might find this strange.

EDIT (July 22):

the notification history for the account now looks as follows:

Still no seasoned advice

There is still no Seasoned Advice notification. Even if SO was joined two days later (after the screenshot was taken) that doesn't explain the lack of SA notification.


I tried clicking the user page link, and I got This nonexistent page. I think there has to be a problem, even if it doesn't always occur.


The SO account was apparently created last year. So that was the source of the confusion.

    Next you get to teach her how to code. Good luck! Commented Jul 19, 2013 at 22:10

    The icon is for Stack Overflow as well. Commented Jul 19, 2013 at 22:11

    Maybe we can change it to Soup Overflow or Snack Overflow... Commented Jul 20, 2013 at 7:45

I was could not reproduce the issue you're describing. The account history for "Dawn Kundera" shows that the Seasoned Advice account was created on July 19th and the StackOverflow account was created on July 21st, and that was the source of the notification on your screenshot.

  • do you mean July 19 and July 21? the screenshot was taken on July 19, before the account was apparently registered for SO.
