I'm not sure this is the right place to ask (maybe SO meta should get developer's attention quicker?).

I created my account on French SE today. I signed in with Google, and my account got created instantly. Except, some details were missing:

  • My username was not automatically set. I was user945 for a while and asked to change it manually.
  • I did not get my 100 points bonus.
  • About me and other fields of my profile are not imported.


  • The 'accounts' field of my user page shows correctly all the other 17 acocunts I have on SE.

It is not the first time I create an account on the SE network, I usualy proceed in that exat manner (sign in -> click on Google icon -> Takes me to Google page where I'm prompted to accept -> voilà).

I wonder if it's a bug, as I don't really have the means to reproduce it, or if I missed some step by mistake. How can I get the issue resolved?

There are currently problems with association, and it is being looked at. Thanks for reporting the issue!


You're now good to go, the association bonus backfill took care of things here.

  • Thanks a lot Nick!
