I've logged in to data explorer site, but it didn't recognise my old account and created a new one.

Is it possible to merge those accounts, as I can't logging to my old account anymore.

    Similar cases reported here. This is not a duplicate btw, I did recall this issue was fixed but apparently it isn't. – rene Mar 29 '16 at 21:00

    Your accounts have been merged now. – Oded Mar 30 '16 at 13:10
  • @rene I don't think it can be fixed, SE employee has to manually merge the accounts each time. So far it's rare enough to not make it a big deal probably. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Mar 30 '16 at 13:18

    @rene you mean the pull request mentioned here? It can take years until Nick will deploy it on the server. (I decided to stop nagging him long ago, it's pointless.) – Shadow The Princess Wizard Mar 30 '16 at 13:24
  • yes, that is the one @ShadowWizard I think Nick fancies breaking Stack Overflow more then doing a pull on SEDE ;) – rene Mar 30 '16 at 13:27
  • @Oded can you review and deploy SEDE pull requests, or is it something that only Nick is doing? – Shadow The Princess Wizard Mar 30 '16 at 13:28
  • @ShadowWizard - technically, I can... – Oded Mar 30 '16 at 13:28
  • @Oded I can see the "but...". Thanks anyway, and happy bug hunting! :) – Shadow The Princess Wizard Mar 30 '16 at 13:51
