I have seen a few edits that clearly are being done by the post owner but for some reason the post owner has two accounts with the same user name. The system should at least tell the person how to get the accounts merged.

I see this a lot with user11111 kind of accounts as the OP, they sign their name to the post, then I see an "Answer" with more detail from a real account. I flag and say "needs accounts merged" and suggest you do the same when looking through the edit queue. My guess is that anything repetitive will get automated eventually - and you can help make it repetitive :-) –  Kate Gregory Jul 29 '11 at 22:21

Better yet, automatically merge the accounts if the system can verify that they are coming from the same person. –  Robert Harvey Jul 29 '11 at 23:06
