All the new communities that I join are using my oldest profile (Tex/LateX.SE) but I would rather they link to my profile at Math.SE.

Is there a simple way to accomplish that? I navigated the site but could not find a way to do so.

This is not the same as How can I edit my network profile independently? as this one here does not ask about the Network Profile, but rather creating new "ordinary" accounts across Stack Exchange.

The copying of the oldest profile is by design.

The only way would be to make your Tex/Latex profile read the same as your Math [sic] profile.

I'd suggest opening a to allow the user to choose which profile to sync with it defaulting to the oldest.

  • @AntonSherwood this answer is outdated. Chris can you please update it? See this for up-to-date information. Dec 18, 2017 at 23:15
  • @ShadowWizard - nope. It still copies your oldest profile when creating a new account. The only bit that's wrong is the syncing of the network profile.
