Update 1: scifi mod tells me a CM contacted me this morning, I haven't received any e-mail (I checked the spam too). Not sure if it's related.

Update 2: got a reply for the latest form submitted from here, it's currently being looked into by the developer team.

enter image description here

Not-dupe to this: I filled the merge-request form but it said they are already merged, form cannot be sent.

(Drop down view.)

URL's of accounts in questions:

A) https://scifi.stackexchange.com/users/80704/
B) https://scifi.stackexchange.com/users/80756/ (now shows same user name as A, but different URL, earlier it had my G+ pic and name!)

enter image description here
(View from B.)

I have no idea how B) was created, I filled the merge-request form but it said they are already merged.

Issues being faced:

  1. Reputation changes for A don't show in the notification
  2. I can't change profile settings for A (check below screen)
  3. I have no access to settings of B, so I can't submit delete request
  4. I can't access scifi-meta from A (needs logging-in despite being logged-in)
  5. No association bonus for A/B

enter image description here
(Point 2. above, I tried the password reset, no effect. Right now I have only one log-in method.)

Earlier: account B had a hash-code kind of name, then it changed to my G+ name and picture, I was able to change that from my main parent account by saving settings to all.

I hope that makes sense. Thanks a lot.

P.S. During scifi account creation, an error message appeared that said SE was notified of the error.

  • check added screencap, form won't go through, not a dupe, thanks – user355292 Apr 5 '17 at 12:22
  • Just use the contact form, choose "other" and explain what's going on. Not much anyone here can do about it. – Cai Apr 5 '17 at 12:25
  • Can you access both accounts? If so, just delete the account with 1 rep, you should have a delete option in your profile somewhere. (It won't be instant, wait for a day or something like that after clicking it) – Shadow Wizard Apr 5 '17 at 12:26
  • @ShadowWizard can't access B at all, as I wrote. – user355292 Apr 5 '17 at 12:26
  • So I'm afraid only a developer can help, submit a form as @Cai suggested and wait. Can't see any real harm done here so far. – Shadow Wizard Apr 5 '17 at 12:27
  • @Cai I did submit an Other form but I haven't received the confirmation e-mail, it's been many hours still no e-mail. – user355292 Apr 5 '17 at 12:27
  • @zm3 there is not automatic confirmation email in Stack Exchange. Average wait time from what I can tell is about two days for non urgent things. (keep in mind that team of 2-3 people handle thousands of requests per day.) – Shadow Wizard Apr 5 '17 at 12:28
  • Fair enough, but as I said, not much anyone here can do other than direct you to the contact form – Cai Apr 5 '17 at 12:28
  • @Cai understood, will try contact form from meta, not from scifi, thanks – user355292 Apr 5 '17 at 12:28
  • @ShadowWizard oh I thought there was an e-mail, it says you'll receive an e-mail shortly, and I have before on previous submissions, thanks for the help though. I'll wait and see. – user355292 Apr 5 '17 at 12:34
  • @zm3 true, but it's not automatic. It's sent only when SE employee gets the ticket and starts working on it. – Shadow Wizard Apr 5 '17 at 12:35

    @Elephant I have them hidden, the option is under profile settings. – user355292 Apr 5 '17 at 17:27

Without spending too much time digging into what happened here... it looks like you may have created what we call an "unregistered" account somehow - that is, an account without login credentials, identified only by a cookie. Then... I really have no idea what happened.

Long story short, though, I fixed up your profiles, so everything should be in the same spot again. Sorry about all the hassle. Let me know if you still see any issues.

  • All fixed, much appreciated :) – user355292 Apr 5 '17 at 15:10
