Sorry if this is posted in the wrong tag area. I couldn't find the correct tag and if anyone can help with that, it be great.
My problem is that a year ago I used a Stackoverflow account that was wired to my email. And over a year for some reason I made a new SO account, connected it with the same email and used that instead of the other one (I really can't explain why, I don't remember). That new SO account is also associated with my account. I know this because when I updated my Gravatar, I saw that my former SO account's thumbnail Gravatar changed as well:
Notice how they have the same avatars. Also notice how my account has 4,982 reputation while the other has only 40 rep. (because I haven't had access to it in over a year!). So my question is: is there any way I can get access back to this account? They both are associated with the same email that I have access to. I know this because I remember getting email notifications from SO to my account notifying me of new answers to my question back when I had my old account. But now I don't get those notifications and I don't know why. But anyway, can you please give me any ideas as to how to get access to this account? Any and all suggestions are welcome. And if you need more detail please comment. Thanks.
