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

How can I comment on the post that I've asked as guest?

There is a cookie based system that tries to keep "guest" visits hooked together, but it is perforce fragile. Once that breaks you'll have to do as Grace Note suggests. – dmckee Dec 4 '10 at 17:51

If you can provide proof of ownership of the guest account, send an email to detailing your plight. They can then merge the account with yours, which gives you ownership of the post and thus the ability to add comments once again. You'll also regain any reputation you may have earned as that guest account.

Is it possible to merge that topic with my current account in this way? – kvphxga Dec 6 '10 at 16:25
