I can see my account and my Q&A history for Super User, but when I try to ask a new question, I am asked to sign up:

Enter image description here

I don't see this issue with any other Stack Exchange site. What is going on?

    @rene Not a duplicate of that question. This appears to be a different problem, based on the screenshot: the top bar shows them signed in and the button is the same one that shows for unregistered accounts. It's not a cross-domain cookie issue, but that somehow their account is recognized as unregistered. May 21, 2023 at 19:14
  • @SonictheAnonymousHedgehog I asked a question on SuperUser as an unregistered user. During the process, I was asked to provide my email ID and I did.

    Ah, then it seems that the issue is that you've accidentally created a second unregistered account on Super User instead of using your overall profile. See How can one link / merge / combine / associate two accounts / users? (Anonymous / unregistered / cookie, or Google / Facebook / registered) for how to join it to your main account.

  • @SonictheAnonymousHedgehog When I put the link for my unregistered account, SE does not go through and keeps telling me to provide the missing URL. Is it a bug or am I doing something wrong?

  • @a_sid no bug. You should not mix accounts in the same browser. You can either use different browser, or create a new profile if the browser supports it. (Chrome does, don't know about others) May 22, 2023 at 7:24
  • @ShadowTheSpringWizard I am confused. Doesn't this link let you merge two accounts, irrespective of any other factors?

  • @a_sid yes, it does. How is it relevant to what I said? If you'll keep using same browser profile for more than one account, same issue will happen again, and SE team will stop helping you if you'll flood them. May 22, 2023 at 8:02
  • @SonictheAnonymousHedgehog not a duplicate, but it may help. May 22, 2023 at 8:52
  • I emailed the SE team and they fulfilled my request. Now I can access my SuperUser account just like all my other SE accounts
