Posting from a different PC to ask my first question on the English SE site I opted to use a temporary identity (varying items blocked from said PC) with the belief I could associate the question with my standard OpenId (Google) account when at my personal PC.

This does not seem to be the case. How can I associate the given question with my standard account which I am under now? They both are tied to the same email address however forcing the merge seems to be impossible?

Note the reputation differences; as the images/name are the same.

If you still have access to the first computer, you can edit your profile to say "I am also user 5612, please merge me with that account" and flag for a mod.

  • I manually added my Google OpenId on the initial PC after the fact in hopes of having the ability to merge and now I can see no way of getting back to the earlier account. Flagged the initial question for mod attention...will see if that does it... Commented Mar 1, 2011 at 20:59
