While merging accounts using the Contact Us link on the bottom of the page, how do I select the account which must be retained; the one that won't get deleted?
If I login from the main account and then merge the secondary account, then should the URL of main account come first on this page? In other words, does "your other profile link" refer to the primary/main account or the secondary one?
Also, on merging 2 Stack Exchange accounts, will all the related account info of the associated sites used in both the accounts be merged?
The situation is like this :
I used two different email address to create two stack exchange accounts . I used account 1 for sister site A and B while I used account 2 for sites C and D . Now I want account 1 's email address to exist and want to combine both .(this is a mini update , again from the comments, which elaborates the situation)
UPDATE 1 :
(from the comments)
Is this automated ?
" The last time I did so , I was taken to a page saying "We have sent verification email to both your account emails " and then I clicked on those verification links from my inbox . A new page came up saying "Account 1 is verified , now do the same for the other " ... and I did so and it was over in a minute . So I felt that it was automated . Maybe its automated for accounts which are associated to a single sub-site only (which was the case back then). "
While I was at this problem , I came across "my logins" . I was wondering if adding the two SE accounts in the login details of one account merge them automatically ?
I guess then I will be able to delete the unwanted one .(I didnt try it though)
The incident I described in updated one looked automated and can be backed by this :
Is it automatic for 2 stackexchange accounts which are registered only in one same sub-site( out of the many ) and the contact us link of that particular website is used ?
