This question already has an answer here:
This morning I've asked a question (on Academia) without registering. I've received an email with a link to set up an account and I've followed it. However it seems this new account is in no way connected with the question I've asked, so I can't comment/upvote/mark as accepted. Have I done anything wrong, or is it supposed to work that way? Is there any way to "merge" the accounts?
