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 asked a question and mistakenly created an unregistered user. Now I'm unable to access the question and respond to people answering it.

I have created a stack exchange user - how can I gain access to the unregistered account, and preferably move the question to my stack exchange user?

You need to flag the question that you asked for moderator attention, and ask them to merge it into your current account.

Like so:

Click the "flag" link on your question underneath the tags, type a comment in the "other" box, and click the "Flag Question" button.

@BozKay: I've flagged it myself, so a moderator should be by to fix things up shortly. I'm not sure why you can't flag it, though. There should be a link to do that any time you're logged in. – Cody Gray Jul 25 '11 at 12:36
Yep - double checked - no flag option. Perhaps it is because I'm new and only have a rep of 3? – Boz Jul 25 '11 at 13:01
@BozKay: When your reputation is below 15, you can only flag your own posts. So now that your accounts are merged and you don't need to flag it, you can. – mmyers Jul 25 '11 at 13:34
Thanks - I can't vote this up as my rep is only 8... ah well... – Boz Jul 26 '11 at 10:22
