I have registered a Stack Exchange OpenID account with Stack Overflow and would like to merge that with an unregistered account on Stack Overflow. The e-mail addresses are the same in both accounts however the automatic merge failed to work. Also, whenever I try to access the previous unregistered account through account recovery I am always redirected to the new account so I'm stuck with reputation 1.
In the FAQ question it says that the main way to merge accounts is to flag a post for a moderator to merge. This post has a screen shot of where that flag link is but like the OP in the question, I do not have access to the flag link since all I am stuck with my newly registered account with 1 reputation on Stack Overflow.
So, apart from me asking somebody to flag it for me, how can a newly registered account flag a previously unregistered account's questions?
