Proposal: Operations Research

If you have an account on any other Stack Exchange site (Stack Overflow, tex.SE, math.SE, etc.), please make sure it is linked to your commitment to the OR site on Area 51.

Here's how to check:

  1. Visit the OR site proposal on Area 51.
  2. Under "Your Commitment", click on your user name.
  3. If it says "Unregistered User" at the top, you have not linked to another SE account.
  4. If it says "Registered User", click the tab that says "accounts". If you see your other accounts there, you have linked successfully; if not, you have not linked successfully.

Here's how to fix it: If you have another SE account but have not linked it successfully, it seems the easiest way to fix it is just to click "Uncommit", log in to your other SE account, and click "Commit" again. Alternately, you can try this.

Note: It can take up to a day for Area 51 to recognize your linked account. So, if you don't see the Commitment % roll over by 1 when you link your account, don't panic.

Why this is important: To move to the next phase (beta launch), we need 100 or more committers who have 200 or more reputation points on other SE sites. We only need a few more!

I know of at least 3 committers who have lots of rep on other sites but have not linked their accounts. In at least 2 of these cases, the user tried to link them but couldn't get it to work. Stack Exchange folks/mods -- is there anything you can do on your end to help with this? I can send you user names if you want.

Thanks everyone! We are close!!

  • Can you include those unlinked accounts below? I'd like to look into how that happens and how perhaps we can make it more evident that is the case. – Robert Cartaino May 10 at 15:31
  • Yes -- OK to just post them here you mean? – LarrySnyder610 May 10 at 15:31
  • Yes. If you see it (public), there's nothing privileged or secret about – Robert Cartaino May 10 at 15:32
  • Is there an easy way to search by name among the Area 51 committers? – LarrySnyder610 May 10 at 15:33
  • Other than a normal browser search (ctrl-F), not that I know of (I always wanted better tooling for things like that). I was going off your statement, "I know of at least 3 committers..." For my purposes, listing them would be fine. – Robert Cartaino May 10 at 15:37
  • OK, I will list their SE profiles, and their Area 51 profiles if I have them at hand. Give me a sec. – LarrySnyder610 May 10 at 15:38
  • No rush. It's a longer-term need; not something I can do anything about immediately without further dev resources. – Robert Cartaino May 10 at 15:39
  • OK, here are some. There are probably half-dozen or so others, but I didn't keep as careful track of them because they are not 200+ rep users. :) Erwin Kalvelagen, Sebastian Wozny (Area51 profile), Kyle Booth, John Gunnar Carlsson – LarrySnyder610 May 10 at 15:42
