Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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 posted a couple of questions as an unregistered user (this is not a Google account or a standard OpenID account). Later, I added myself as a registered user through my Gmail account. Is there a way to club both the e-mail addresses and use one account?

I am able to post comments and ask questions, but am unable to delete anything I post (the existing work as an unregistered user).

Has anyone else faced this problem and is there a workaround?

You can always send an email to (the address at the bottom of every page) and explain your situation, or flag any of your posts for moderator attention. You'll have to identify the old user (to be merged with the new one) and provide some sort of proof that both accounts belong to the same person (e.g. by supplying the email adrdress used for each one, and the sending mail from that address).

I don't think just telling them the email address would be enough. For example, I publish the email I use with StackOverflow. – Gelatin Aug 3 '10 at 1:37
