Today I logged in to Data Explorer using my OpenID account, and it didn't fill out automatically my user profile details; or, to be more exact, it filled them in wrongly: it only populated the "login" field, and to do that it took the part before @ of my e-mail address. So, if my address is somename@somedomain.com, my account was shown as somename.

I was able to edit the fields by hand, but could this be automated using the same process used for the other sites?

    I just logged in for the first time and got the user name john.doe8. Curious! – Ether Jun 8 '10 at 18:26
  • Odd Im grabbing Nickname from the sreg fields and falling back to email. Unlike so Im forcing logins to be unique, it makes it easier to keep track of people. – waffles Jun 9 '10 at 0:48

    Doesn't seem to link in to my other stackoverflow accounts either - even if I click the "copy profile to other accounts" button. Doesn't even show up under the accounts tab. – evan Nov 12 '11 at 17:26
  • Is it separate from the SE network somehow? – Jeff Bridgman Jan 1 '14 at 21:28

    @JeffBridgman This related Q (which I just tracked down from the same curiosity!) answers that: Why doesn't Data Explorer log in with Stack Overflow login? – SevenSidedDie Apr 8 '15 at 20:30
