What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I followed the instructions on http://stackoverflow.com/help/user-merge and it did not work.
I'll have my other account that I want merged in also post on this.

This is my other account that I want merged into the mpaulse account. Thanks – mpaulse Feb 15 '13 at 8:36
"Did not work" how? Did you follow all steps? – Bart Feb 15 '13 at 8:39
I did follow all the steps. I log in to my main account. I then went to my main profile. I clicked on my logins. It currently has my google credentials which are associated with my main account. I then click on Add More Logins. I click Log in with Facebook. My facebook credentials are associated with the account I want to merge with my main account. It then says: Switch Users On Meta Stack Overflow Facebook (xxxxx@facebook.com) belongs to another user (Matthew Paulsen) You can log in as Matthew Paulsen or cancel to stay logged in as mpaulse I click login and I am the other acct. – mpaulse Feb 15 '13 at 15:22
@Bart sorry I forgot to tag you in the reply. – mpaulse Feb 16 '13 at 3:12
Same problem here :-( – JoniJnm Feb 18 '13 at 20:14
Had the same problem (login/cancel, neither merges), then did it on StackOverflow instead of StackExchange and it seems to have worked. – user213551 Feb 26 '13 at 23:38
@JoniJnm this was fixed for me by using Stack Exchange rather then Stack Overflow. – mpaulse 9 hours ago – mpaulse Feb 27 '13 at 16:43

So, thank you to @Karl D Aborg for the hint. If I followed the instructions and ran them from Stack Overflow it did not work. When I instead went to Stack Exchange and followed the instructions it worked successfully.

My accounts are now merged together.

JoniJnm will not be pinged like this. You need to reply on the post where he has left comment. (e.g. in the question) :-) – hims056 Feb 27 '13 at 7:50
