  • I had exactly the same poor experience when trying to use this feature after creating a new account and filling out my profile.
  • If this isn't going to be supported for Meta Codidact, then it should be greyed out in the profile or show some other sort of explanatory message.
  • Frankly, though, I don't understand why it *wouldn't* be supported for Meta Codidact. You shouldn't associate yourself with *individual* Stack Exchange site accounts. That's too much work; I don't want to have to do that for each Codidact site that I join. Instead, you should associate yourself with your Stack Exchange network account; e.g.: https://stackexchange.com/users/152400/cody-gray.
