Currently, the Area 51 accounts tab has a "copy from" button, while all other site's accounts tab have a "copy [sitename] profile to related accounts". Since the Area 51 profile is the only complete listing of a user's profiles (including private betas), the ability to copy the Area 51 profile to another site seems to be missing.

Also, so the "copy Area 51 profile to related accounts" to overwrite all profiles would be nice.

(I'm introducing the [related-accounts] tag here, since that's what it's named at the accounts tab)

We updated the Area 51 accounts page to resemble other accounts pages accross the network:

  • Flair is displayed in a grid (not a list)
  • "Copy profile from" button replaced with "Copy profile to"
  • The "About Me" section supports markdown
  • thanks. Is there any way to sync only two profiles however? Sep 30, 2010 at 8:22
  • @tobias copy-paste :/

  • ♦: I thought so... What about adding a small "<=" arrow in that grid with a "copy this profile here" as tooltip? Yeah, I know it's not so important and can be worked around, was just an idea... Sep 30, 2010 at 14:34
  • @tobias perhaps, but that'd be a feature request for the entire network of sites

  • realted Copy profile link is too obscure (I didn't do it!) Oct 1, 2010 at 10:33
