This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.


Flag one of your questions or answers for moderator attention, and ask for the accounts to be merged.

Make sure you are clear which account you want to keep.

Also note that we cannot merge registered accounts into unregistered ones, so this works better if the master account (the one you want to keep) is a registered account.

Make sure that the email addresses for both accounts are identical. This is how we prove that the two accounts belong to the same person.

  • I"m getting the following error message when I try to set the same email address "Oops! There was a problem updating your profile: Email is already registered" – Henry Tseng Mar 13 '11 at 6:21
  • @Henry: Must be because you didn't use OpenID. Did you flag? – Robert Harvey Mar 13 '11 at 6:26
  • Is this how I would flag? – Henry Tseng Mar 13 '11 at 6:32
  • @Henry: Do you see the "flag" link above this, right below my answer. where it says mod|link|edit|delete|flag? Click that link, on one of your questions or answers. – Robert Harvey Mar 13 '11 at 6:39
