Here what I had prepared for the merge support guys...
I have two accounts with the same email address...firstname.lastname@example.org and I want to merge them together. This came about as a result of the fact that I found it infuriatingly difficult to log in. I think this was a result of the log in page not being rendered correctly in firefox when I went to log in on firefox the page wasn't displaying the text boxes correctly so I went to chrome and ended up creating a new user account. Anyway the two names of the accounts are "bingbong" and "userxxxxx"
I would like to merge these I would like to keep "userxxxxx" as the primary account and I will take it from there. Is there a recommended browser for stack exchange? Once I have created my account with stack exchange do I need to create new accounts for each sub section of stack exchange? or do I automatically get access to each by which I mean I can ask/answer questions in each? I can't log in to my other account bingbong to provide you with the bingbong profile link because (and this is the annoying not very intuitive part, or am I a bit slow!?) the details you use to log in are your email address (shared by both accounts) and password which I have set the same for both accounts, so it just keeps logging me in to userxxxxx. You should implement some preventative measure to stop people creating accounts with the same email and password? Am I right in saying this?
So you can see my problem I can't log in to bing bong cos I it has the same credentials as userxxxx I am guessing I'd need to close userxxxxx account for me to be able to log in to bingbong? Thereby rendering the while exercise useless as userxxxxx is the account I want to keep
