Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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

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
