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

Possible Duplicates:
How can one link/merge/combine/associate two accounts/users? (Anonymous/unregistered/cookie or OpenID/registered)
how to register my unregistered account?


I have an account in StackOverflow for quite some time but I never took the time to register.

I want to have that same account and username but I want to be a registered user so I can favorite questions.

How can I do that without losing the points and questions I have?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Since you need a registered account in order to post on Meta Stack Overflow, I'm assuming you had to register a separate account instead of registering your original account. In that case, please follow these instructions: flag a post of yours for moderator attention and request a user account merge. Specify the profile page for your other account, and provide any other identifying info if you have any. – Grace Note Jan 17 '11 at 15:26

Judging by questions here and here, you can simply use the "register" link at the top of the page to make a registered account, and if you find your registered account to be lacking questions, you can ask a moderator to merge them in.

(This is, of course, all assuming you currently do not have a registered account.)
