When I go look at my accounts in SE network, mathoverflow is not listed there. (You can get to the list of accounts, for example, from your profile page. Other SE accounts are listed on profile page.)

I have checked profile pages of a few other users and noticed the same thing - math.SE is listed as one of the accounts, MO is not.

    $\begingroup$ To me it seems synced as the other accounts appear on the MO profile page. But not the other way round. $\endgroup$ Jun 25, 2013 at 9:37

    $\begingroup$ But not the MO account itself, which seems to have dropped off all profile pages at the same time. (I seem to remember it still being there on all pages a short while ago. Maybe a glitch?) $\endgroup$ Jun 25, 2013 at 9:42

    $\begingroup$ It seems that some users have mathoverflow listed among their accounts, see here. $\endgroup$ Jun 25, 2013 at 9:45

    $\begingroup$ But even on Alex B's profile (the user Martin Sleziak links to) it's not perfect: Alex has certainly posted more on MO than 0 questions and 1 answer. $\endgroup$ Jun 25, 2013 at 12:14

Now that we've done the import, we'll need to refresh our global network cache of users and posts from all sites. The fun part is this is a huge job, so we have to take portions of the API offline for a bit to do it...which means we don't want to do it twice.

Today we'll be checking that everything is ready for a backfill and we don't need to do anything else that would just cause us to do another one. Once we're pretty confident we've gotten everything adjusted, we'll run that backfill and your network accounts will be correct on SE.com and elsewhere.

    $\begingroup$ Don't you think this question better be placed on the main meta site as it's about the network profile? $\endgroup$ Jun 28, 2013 at 22:55

    $\begingroup$ @ShadowWizard Not really. It only affects MO, and we monitor child metas as well (clearly :)), so this is getting fixed either way and the question is on the meta site where it's most likely to help the community it affects. $\endgroup$
