I know that a similar question (How to merge two different Stack Overflow accounts?) was asked a lot of times, but the answer to all of them was the same: visit the help centre page on merging accounts and use the contact form with the I need to merge user profiles option selected.

Unfortunately, I want neither to merge two Stack Overflow account nor to merge a Stack Overflow account with a Stack Exchange account. And the solution seems to work only in the second case.

What I should do if I want to merge two different Stack Exchange accounts?

    @gvgramazio I don't understand. Can you clarify what is not working? Did you submit the contact form, and haven't had a reply yet, or were you unable to submit the form at all? – Tinkeringbell May 17 at 12:14

    @Tinkeringbell I want to merge two accounts on the whole SE network. The instructions I've found so far are relative only to accounts on the same community. Should I submit a contact form for each community? – gvgramazio May 17 at 12:16

    Ah. I think the best you can do is join the same community as your other account, with the account you want to keep. Don't interact with the account you already have there. Then fill in the contact form, and request the account merge, so the account can be added to your network profile – Tinkeringbell May 17 at 12:18
  • @Tinkeringbell I was very cautious and I never interacted between the two accounts because I known that I could have encountered problems in a future merge. The older one is for personal use and the other one for work related questions. I realised that it was a very stupid idea and now I wish to merge them. – gvgramazio May 17 at 12:25

    So do you want them to be completely merged, or just for 1 community? From what I can see over here, it does not seem you have to perform this for every community, you can just pick a site and they'll merge them entirely. – Tinkeringbell May 17 at 12:28

    @Tinkeringbell I want them to be completely merged. I did it now with the form at meta.stackexchange.com/contact and it worked. – gvgramazio May 17 at 12:40
  • @Tinkeringbell New issue: I'm able to login with both email at the same account now (this is what I hoped for) but when I look at the profile settings I see only one email. – gvgramazio May 17 at 12:41
  • @Tinkeringbell Nevermind, found both of them now. It is exactly what I wanted. Thanks for your help. – gvgramazio May 17 at 12:43
  • Glad to hear you figured it out :) You're welcome! – Tinkeringbell May 17 at 12:44
