So, this site seems loosely connected to the Stack Exchange platform (it obviously runs the same software for one, and visiting the URL http://paleo.stackexchange.com/ forwards you here) but is missing some of the nicer aspects of other Stack Exchange sites, such as profile linking (you visit multiple sites on the Stack Exchange network, and they know you're the same person and link your profiles together. I will also admit I like the "free" 100 points you get when you join a new Stack Exchange site, as you are already known to their system, points I didn't get here):
OpenID login (I miss this one a lot, I would like being able to use my OpenID here):
The Stack Exchange dropdown menu (gives you access to your global Stack Exchange "inbox", i.e. even if you're visiting, say, Stack Overflow, it will tell you that you have answers or comments on a question on, say, the Unix and Linux site):
Is there any particular reason for this???for lack of a better word???"half-assed" approach to the Stack Exchange platform, and are there any plans to ever fully connect and bring in all features of the Stack Exchange platform?
It may seem a little strange that my first question on here is a meta-quesiton, but being a long-time (albeit not very active) Stack Exchange user, the disparity of this site and what I'm normally used to made me have to ask.

I belive it is because it is a standalone installation, that possibly predated the Stack Exchange network. I have asked a similar question before: http://paleohacks.com/questions/78808/meta-mobile-paleohacks
