Consolidation of profiles from different sites RRS feed

  • Question

  • It looks like Microsoft has consolidated several of their forum websites to use the same Profile engine connected to LiveId.

    For example when I recently tried to log in to  http://forums.silverlight.net/ forums the system identified that the email address associated with my LiveId was also associated with an older Silverlight.Net forum username (that I hat set up before they migrated over to using LiveIds).

    It asked for my old password and then automatically associated my LiveId with the Silverlight.Net forum profile, which seemed like a good thing.

    However, the problem is that I now have multiple forum Profiles in the system and would prefer to use one profile (this one) across all MSDN and Microsoft dev related forums.

    Is there a way to consolidate multiple forum profiles (which are associated to the same LiveId) into a single forum profile?

  • Looks like the end result is that you cannot combine profiles. The Silverlight profile only shows your Silverlight activities. However, you can link profiles with the same Live ID to make a seamless travel experience.

  • No. But if you link to each of your profiles in question, we might be able to find a way of making this easier/simpler.

    Thanks!

    Ed,

        By "link" are you referring to some linking capacity in one of the profiles or are you basically saying post a link to the other profile here in this public forum?

    Or is there a way to privately send you the links?

    Thanks.

  • Yes, just paste a link to your different profiles. We can get to your MSDN one by clicking your name:

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/profile/d%20lamb/?ws=usercard-mini

    If you'd like to send any other ones privately, you can email me... edprice at Microsoft.

    Thanks!
