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

I have seen people asking of merging their accounts on meta. I think SO should provide merge account request link on user's home page. By clicking on it user can request merging accounts by giving account's link he want to merge. [Or something similar] This way may be people stop making requests in questions.

I don't think this is really necessary. E-Mailing the team or asking a question here are perfectly fine ways to deal with it. Also, an explicit "request merge" link would almost certainly increase the number of fraudulent requests.

How does you saying to email the team on meta stop new users "making requests in questions"? – Ian Ringrose Apr 8 '11 at 10:53
@Ian I expect most people will just E-Mail the team anyway. And for the rest, what is the problem with users making requests in questions? Is somebody occasionally asking for a merge that big a nuisance? I think not. – Pëkka Apr 8 '11 at 10:53
