Yesterday I made a question on Chess Stack Exchange as a guest user (ChessNoob - How to avoid Pirc in favor of KID) People answered and I'd like to accept one of the answers (the one made by user1583209) but I can't because it seems I already have another account registerd with the same email (the one I'm using now). Maybe the solution to this kind of loop would be to add a check on the emails when posting as a guest?

Returning to the original question, how can I accept an answer if I made a question as a guest?


Just use the Contact Us form and ask for your accounts to be merged. After that, you'll be able to accept the answer.

  • I'd like for most of my coworkers not to know it was me asking the question since it's rather critical of them. Hence asking as a guest in order to ask anonymously. I assumed that it would let me ask as a guest and yell at me about a duplicate email if that was a problem. How can I comment/edit as OP without de-anonymizing (which merging would do, no?)?

    I think using another email account is your best bet.
