See my Stack Exchange accounts tab here


Ethereum, Martial Arts Stack Exchange, and Stack Overflow are listed.

I don't know why these accounts are shown on the page (see image) above.

Moreover, not only can I see the profiles of these accounts, but I can also edit these user profiles (and delete their accounts).

I have double-checked the email addresses of these users and I can see that their email accounts aren't the same as my account, user1176409.

(See their email addresses to double check my email accounts haven't been used by others, not for bad purposes.)

What should I do about these accounts? Should I ignore them?

These users (I mean the accounts that is not registered by me) have changed all their usernames to user1176409……

    Perhaps somebody fat-fingered during an account merge?

    @Glorfindel you might check the TL transcript as well for a current discussion on merges.

  • I think no, as the email address for other accounts not registered by me is definitely different with the email address that I registered. Feb 12 at 7:35

  • @SonictheAnonymousHedgehog Oh, hacking my accounts? This is quite serious. Feb 12 at 7:43

    It looks like something went wrong, @user1176409 - there are several moderators looking into what happened, and it's been escalated to staff. Hopefully it'll be resolved later today.

    @user1176409 Mithical can’t do anything or check progress for you. We just have to wait for SE staff to do something. Feb 12 at 13:18
  • I've put in an associated (but not the same) note to staff regarding my account, what happened several months ago. I'll be watching - and let you know when they respond and if they're able to indicate what happened.

    @user1176409 I got info that it's being handled. Feb 13 at 7:50
  • @user1176409 but turns out it was fake news, as the time that passed proves, it's not being handled, perhaps they tried, but failed. 16 hours ago
  • Well, re. mine - I've heard nothing, not even an acknowledgment of receipt of my report. Hmmm.
