# why was my profile transferred here from stack overflow?

I have been using Stack Overflow for some time as I undertake a massive programming project in various languages that are new to me. It has been enormously helpful. I provided some user information when asked.

When I got onto Math Exchange I was asked whether I wanted my profile transferred and said no. But the user information was transferred.

The user information is perfectly true, but not what I would have put on the Math Exchange site. Can I do something about this?

• Can you edit your math.stackexchange profile? If so, that would be a good way. – robjohn Sep 4 '13 at 21:47
• Was it an immediate profile transfer (e.g. as soon as you logged in, the data was there), or was it delayed? I know that saving a user profile on a different stack exchange site can copy data to all of them... – apnorton Sep 5 '13 at 13:15
• @robjohn -- I'll try to edit it; thanks for the tip. – Betty Mock Sep 6 '13 at 1:35
• @anorton -- darned if I can remember. In fact, I may never have known. – Betty Mock Sep 6 '13 at 1:35
• @BettyMock That's ok. I hadn't looked at your profile (until now) to realize that you hadn't transferred membership within the past day or so... :o – apnorton Sep 6 '13 at 1:42
• Well, I can't edit it on math exchange. I removed it from Stack Exchange, but it is still here on math exchange. Any other suggestions? – Betty Mock Sep 15 '13 at 5:58
