What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 131 Stack Exchange communities.

Can we merge users directly from a question page (via drag&drop) without having to open the user page and copy-paste IDs?

We frequently get users who return to their questions with new unregistered accounts, and merging them is a tedious annoying process.

Can you add a Merge With link to the mod menu which allows us to drag in the link to the extraneous userpage?
(Or some other nice UI, such as a Gravatar dropdown)

Looking at the user page seems like a must in order to verify the same user is responsible for both accounts? –  Rebecca Chernoff Mar 3 '11 at 0:34
    
@Rebecca: No; you can tell by the gravatar. Alternatively, you could add a Gravatar dropdown that shows IPs & emails, or only shows matching accounts. –  SLaks Mar 3 '11 at 0:36
