Why isn't there the Edit button in User Profile when we navigate to meta.tex.stackexchange.com?

Is it a bug?


Your meta profile is not independent of the main user profile, but just a copy of it. You only can edit your main profile and the changes will be synchronized to meta after a short while. Same counts for the reputation.

  • However their view counters are independent.

  • What about placing an edit button in the user profile of meta and linking it to edit on the main user profile?

  • @N.N.: We moderators don't have direct influence on the web layout. You would have to request that on meta.stackexchange.com and then it would be for all SX sites. May 28 '11 at 9:32
  • I see, thanks. I just registered so I'm new to all this.

  • @N.N.: Sure, no problem. Note that there is a "main user" link below the user icon on the meta profile which allows you to switch quickly to the main user profile. May 28 '11 at 9:48
