“Copy Profile From Stack Overflow” didn't copy alternate OpenID

In a few hours, I will deactivate what has been my OpenID on all Stack Exchange sites. Is there a way to copy a new OpenID to all my accounts, or do I have to do it manually? I tried using the "Copy Profile To Related Accounts" feature, but it doesn't seem to copy the OpenID.

  • The copy my profile function should copy the main OpenID profile, but will not copy the alternate OpenID. Are you sure that the main OpenID is not being copied? – Pollyanna May 4 '11 at 23:37

    @adam this is now possible, see my edit – Jeff Atwood Jun 7 '11 at 1:52
  • @jeff hurray for freakish examples like us! – Pollyanna Jun 7 '11 at 2:25

There's now a "Copy {Site} login credentials to all Stack Exchange accounts" button on the account tab of your user page now:

    @adam outside of freakish examples like us, it is exceedingly rare for users to have accounts on more than a few sites. – Jeff Atwood May 4 '11 at 23:56

    I'll admit I'm a bit of a special case - there was a time when I was creating an account on every single site that was created. (Looks like I'm up to 49) – Kyle Cronin May 5 '11 at 0:37

Obviously Jeff is right, but if you're going through and fixing them all anyway and you have a domain you control, you might want to make it an OpenID delegate and use that. Then if you ever need to change the backing OpenID provider again, you just change where your domain points and it works automatically
