A bit lost sorry, can't find the answer.

Obviously, I've 2 SE accounts and I want to merge them. Problem is when I fill in the merge form, I need to provide the links of my profiles.

I thought those links are:


But obviously, I'm wrong as the merge form returns:

oops, this isn't a link to a valid profile.

So, simple question: where can I get the links of my profiles?

Most likely you missed the meta. in the URL since the Network profile ID is different from your MSE account ID. I guess you need the latter to make it work.

To get the right ID:

Click on the profile image in the top bar:

click here

or search your user from the users page:

click here

Use the URL of the page you end up:


  • Thanks @Patrick Hofman, but I don't see where I did something wrong. Because the URL format I gave in my question has the exact same format, except the "meta". – romu Apr 1 '16 at 11:55
  • Yes, I guess so. @romu – Patrick Hofman Apr 1 '16 at 11:57
  • Is the "meta" mandatory? – romu Apr 1 '16 at 12:04
  • If that causes you to point to an invalid profile, yes it is. – Patrick Hofman Apr 1 '16 at 12:05
