Over 48 hours ago I submitted a Contact Us item requesting help. Here are the details. I have a SO account which I've lost because I changed the email address associated with my google account -- which it is tied to: user:255243 (screen name - daylight).
To get on to SO I had to create a new account (user:2883178 screen name - daylight) that I used to do the Contact Us.
Wait, before you quickly respond that this is a duplicate, here is the issue:
I cannot access the email address for the original account because it is on a domain I no longer have access to: firstname.lastname@example.org so I cannot retrieve an email.
That means I cannot follow the Merge Two Accounts instructions
- How can I resolve this?
- Is there any way to resolve this?
Why is does this occur? My account should be tied to my Google Account not the associated email address, right?
Why did I have to sign up for an account on meta.stackoverflow.com when I already have an account on stackoverflow.com? Here at meta SO my account is (user:241669 screen name daylight) What?
Also, please note, when I submitted the original request to the Contact Us I did not receive any auto-responder (via email) that the issue had been received nor can I find any place in my SO account that shows my Contact Us issue was submitted. That makes it very difficult for a user to know if the issue was properly received by SO.
