How do I change my OpenID provider(s)?

My Blogger account is going away at the end of the month, but I use it to login to my StackOverflow account. I want to have another OpenId for logging into my StackOverflow and have it go to my same account here (aneccodeal). However, when I tried to add another opanid login ('add more logins' under 'my logins') it seems to create an entirely new StackOverflow account (user445366) with a reputation of only 1 (like starting over again).

How does one go about associating another OpenID with an existing account?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Please rewrite the title to indicate you're having problems. Related: How do I change my OpenID provider(s)?, which seems to be what you actually tried. – Arjan May 2 '12 at 6:38

That account was definitely not just created... As noted by the "member for 1 year, 7 months". Are you sure you hadn't previously used the OpenID for another account and forgotten about it? – animuson May 2 '12 at 6:44
It's possible @animuson - Is there anyway to merge the two accounts? – aneccodeal May 2 '12 at 7:00

1 Answer 1

Apparently I had mistakenly created another account some time ago. I deleted that one and then I was able to use my gmail email address to setup a new login.

(accounts and logins on Stack Overflow/ Stack Exchange, etc. seem very confusing.)
