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 have a problem. Some time ago I created a stackoverflow account and while I was browsing the other sites of the "stack" family, I decided to create a StackExchange account which I used to log into those other sites, although I used stackoverflow for the most part and had my browser remember my login info for it.

But this morning for some reason I wasn't logged in into my stackoverflow account, so I clicked "login" and I was asked if I wanted to use my StackExchange id to login, so I chose yes... But this created a new stackoverflow user for me instead of logging me into my original account!!

So, apparently I now have two stackoverflow accounts: (my original account) (the newly created one)

I've tried logging out and logging back in to stackoverflow but I'm always asked to use my StackExchange info!! How can I log into my original stackoverflow account!?

Or even better, can I just merge the two of them so that all is good!?
