Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I just answered a question on Stack Overflow. Suddenly the question was moved to

Now I want to add reply a comment from the person asking the question, so I created a new account at, but how can I post comment when I do not have reputation at

Can I connect the two accounts?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

@gamehelp16 So I have to create yet another account? – Vering Dec 28 '12 at 14:03
@Vering - Just log in on superuser with the same openid as you use for stackoverflow. – Martin Smith Dec 28 '12 at 14:03
OK, I tried that but could not make it work, so created a new account with the same usename. I might have done something wrong... – Vering Dec 28 '12 at 14:04
@MartinSmith When I try this I get an error "Sorry, something just went wrong in Launchpad Login Service." Might it be because I created an account with the same user name? – Vering Dec 28 '12 at 14:06
If you login and associate your accounts, you automatically get 100 free rep points, which allows you to reply to the comments. – mellamokb Dec 28 '12 at 14:06
@Vering - A moderator might be able to have a look at your two accounts and see the issue. – Martin Smith Dec 28 '12 at 14:07
@Vering you can use your stackexchange account to login to meta stackoverflow – gamehelp16 Dec 28 '12 at 14:07
@mellamokb I look for such an option. Where can I find it? – Vering Dec 28 '12 at 14:10
@mellamokb - Not in this case as the OP only has 24 rep on SO. 200 rep is required on one of the sites before the association bonus applies. – Martin Smith Dec 28 '12 at 14:14

Looking at your Super User account, the OpenID you've used there is StackID, not LaunchPad

enter image description here

I'd recommend you click on the "Add more logins" dialog that you get when you click on My Logins, and then proceed to login with your launchpad login after you logout of launchpad, and StackID. Doing so should merge your accounts

Thank you Sathya! My accounts are connected now, but unfortunately I've lost all my reputation... Hmm. – Vering Dec 29 '12 at 19:39
@Vering that's because the accounts aren't still merged - I've flagged one of your posts to be merged by a Moderator – Sathya Dec 30 '12 at 7:03
thank you! Now I have my reputation on Stackoverflow, but still cannot do anything on (to where the question was migrated). Don't know if anything can be done... – Vering Jan 2 '13 at 10:15
@Vering I've gone ahead and associated the posts that were "lost" with your account. You should be all set! – Aarthi Jan 2 '13 at 16:00
Thanks @Aarthi! Vering, you should have full control over your posts. – Sathya Jan 2 '13 at 16:00
Thanks to all of you for your help. Appreciate that you spend the time necessary to get things fixed. – Vering Jan 2 '13 at 19:12
