I have a user on SharePoint StackExchange with some reputation. On this computer I am logged in and can work with this account.
If I use another browser or another computer, of course I am not logged in. When I try to log in by entering my mail adress and password, StackExchange want to create a new account.
After confirm I get a new account SharePoint StackExchange account with no reputation and I cannot "work" on my given answers.
It's like Facebook would give me a new account with an empty friendlist on each login on a new device.
I have to contact support to merge the new created account with my existing account.
I understand the princip of having different user profiles for different StackExchange Q+A pages. But I don't understand why I always get a new account on a simple login.
Why does this happen? Did I do something wrong or should I login with G+ or Facebook to prevent such behavior?
