After some few years, i've logged in to SO. But when i try to change my name i got that error:

Oops! There was a problem updating your profile:
This email address is already registered. If it belongs to you, log in above or visit our account recovery page to get access to this account.

And i couldn't use that link aswell, because it needs the other profile.

  • You might want to use the Contact Us which can be found at the bottom of each page. – rene May 10 '15 at 21:23
  • @rene, sorry i gave a wrong link. fixed it now. – Orchun May 10 '15 at 21:26
  • You could use the Other option...but I assume @animuson would pick it up here as well.... – rene May 10 '15 at 21:33
  • SO guys, did you do something? It seems to be fixed now! I've changed it from meta and it's changed on SO aswell. – Orchun May 10 '15 at 21:35
  • I didn't do anything... we blame @animuson – rene May 10 '15 at 21:36
  • Something or someone triggered an account merge - congrats! – Shadow The Princess Wizard May 10 '15 at 21:43
