So, I've registered and used a account in Superuser 2 years ago. It's quite inactive account but I don't want to register new one from beginning. Here's it:


Can I get it back? And how?

Can I possible by any chance ask for this user (me) registered email address? Because I tried about 10 email addresses that I used 5 years ago until now, but not single one works. I just want to know the email in order to login it and reset password.

What's the worst thing I can do with another stranger email (if anyone assume) in this case? So believe me and help me a way to get back my user account.

  • @Sathya I'm afraid that won't work if the user doesn't have access to their old account to begin with.

  • Surely, it doesn't allow. Because merge a account that you unable to login is the same case that you claim another person is you, and try to take his/her account by merge them into yours.

Usually you'd go to the forgotten password page. If you tried all e-mail addresses and still can't log in, please contact the Stack Exchange team directly.

For privacy reasons we cannot hand out this information, sorry.

  • Thanks. At the moment, I already got it back. It's one of my inactive Gmail address which I still have access authority. I've no idea how I miss this email for the 1st place, I remember that I also tried it in pass-recovery procedural.
