I have an account at stackoverflow.com with some reputation. Out of curiosity I logged in with Facebook and it created a new account with rep 1.
Now I added the OpenID of my real account to the new account because I thought that would either fail or merge the two accounts. What happens is that I'm redirected at a page that looks like this:
It seems I'm logged in with my old OpenID account now but still viewing the new accounts profile. The accounts have not been merged apparently.
What is expected to happen if a user with an existing account logs in with Facebook (and maybe acquires some reputation)? I think some users will expect both accounts to be separate, others might expect an easy way to merge their accounts.
Is there a way to merge both accounts?
I don't need my accounts to be merged in particular, I just find the current behaviour confusing and wanted to know if a merge is possible.
