We can't merge accounts any more. We basically use a duck test + a quick look at whatever PII we have, and pass it up to a CM. There's nothing that a regular user can do. In many cases I actually suggest OP request a merge themselves just to ensure they're aware of it. There's been cases of folks creating what seemed like a endless stream of new unregistered ...
The answer you’d posted is the same that has been duplicated in 4 (5, actually if you consider another deleted answer which repeats the same content) other answers and doesn’t have any significant new information to stand on its own.
While having your post removed isn’t really a good first-time experience and I’m sorry about that, but Super User strives on ...
ooh. This is a strange one.
IANAL but I suppose the terms of service would be the thing to look at here. I don't see anything explicitly talking about transferring an account but
Subscriber is solely responsible for any use of or action taken under
Subscriber’s password and accepts full responsibility for all activity
conducted through Subscriber’s ...
You login into Super User (and by extension the wider Stack Exchange network) via 3rd party authorisation tools
Your Super User account is linked to other accounts you may have on the network.
This sounds like a really bad idea.
You have no way of disassociating your Super User account from the rest of your accounts. So if you handed over this ...
If you don't choose a user name, that's what you're assigned: A unique ID, which is increasing with every new user, of course.
Here's what you see if you're not logged into Super User. You can post questions or answers without signing up, and without the need to choose a user name.
I don't know what you mean by "can't alow one user one IP".
If you're advocating that a user must be allowed to interact on a site from only one allowed IP, then that's a stupid suggestion. With DHCP IP addresses are recycled across many users and by such a method we're talking about blocking a lot of legitimate users out there.
Account suspensions are ...
There is a big difference between "snark" in someone potentially jokingly saying, and I quote:
You're going to delete individual songs on albums? Appalling.
And your reply that ended with
Shove your idiotic snobbishness about music, of all things, where the sun doesn't shine.
One may possibly be rude, taken out of context and with ...
You escalated a situation and made it worse.
The issue is simply this: You responding the way you did is more egregious than what was done to you. Nobody cares “Who started it…” unless the person who started it was really insulting and out of line.
Have you ever heard of the term/concept of “de-escalation?” You did the opposite: You clearly escalated ...
Assuming you can log in from home, you can just add another OpenID provider. Follow the instructions in this post:
I forgot my Super User email, how do I recover my account?
See also: How do I change my OpenID provider(s)?
Your question is answered on our big parent Meta site, Meta Stack Overflow:
How can one link/merge/combine/associate two accounts/users? (Anonymous/unregistered/cookie or OpenID/registered)
[…] follow this procedure:
Set the email address of your registered account to the address used
in your other account. Since email is not visible to ...
Please do not vandalize the content you posted. Meaning, you should not delete all your questions and answers and then have your account deleted.
By posting here you gave Stack Exchange an irrevocable license to use your content. You can have posts anonymized, but you do not have the right for them to be permanently deleted (unless they contain personally ...
I've closed the near-dupe as a dupe.
Looks like the user's in control of both accounts and strictly speaking there's nothing wrong with socks.
With the duplicates VTC as dupe, flag linking back here, and we'll have a audit trail (in terms of flags). We can mod message if there's more of a patten, and closed posts result in question bans anyway.
This will probably be moved to meta
In short, users who are active on other sites in the stack exchange network gets an association bonus of 100 reputation points on this site. The requirement is to have above 200 reputation points on an SE site.
The reason is that such users probably know the format, and some of the restrictions for new users, such as ...
It looks like you have quite entirely missed the scope of Super User! That's a shame considering you have nearly 4k reputation on Stack Overflow. Have you read our FAQ?
Read the link Oliver Salzburg posted for help lifting the question ban. You also need to make sure that future answers and questions do not follow the same pattern as your old posts.
You might find this Help Center page useful. It explains how to add additional email addresses/logins to your StackExchange account. You should also be able afterward to remove old, unused/unavailable email addresses/logins once the new ones are verified.
an advertisement frame popped up
No idea what that was, but we don't do popup ads (it's not clear from your question whether you were assuming this came from us).
there should be some sort of confirmation
Wherever possible, we tend to go with the no need to confirm if you can undo philosophy. That's why within 15 minutes of your change, you would have ...
Your accounts on a Stack Exchange site are linked, but they are separate & individual on a site-to-site basis and hence it's not possible to merge your Super User account into the Stack Overflow account.
When I log out in SU and SO and Google. Then log into Google as 'raffaeluni' and then log in to SU and SO using Google. Then SO identifies me as (...
Relevant help center pages:
Why do I see the message “OpenId endpoint not found” when I try to log in?
If you cannot log into your OpenID provider, or if you know your provider has ceased supporting an OpenID, please create a new account and then contact us to request an account merge.
Still, it's better to prevent problems if you know this will happen, ...
Gravatars are based on email addresses. No matter what website you're on, if it supports gravatars and you enter your email address, it just works!
Adding e.g. Super User account ID or display name to the gravatar identifier (hash of email address) will only break custom gravatars for users registered with the service who have a custom image.
So if a user ...
Why can't I create a superuser login? Why do I have to use a third party?
You can create a Super User login. What you'll get is an OpenID created by Stack Exchange, the owners of Super User. So this isn't really a third party option.
You can also choose third party OpenID providers such as Google, Facebook or Yahoo!
What are your quality standards?
This link to Meta Stack Exchange pretty much covers all we can tell you. It includes the reasons why the automatic bans happen; how to get unbanned; etc.
There's nothing a moderator or other users can do to directly help you with an automatic ban, and it looks like your account isn't manually suspended by a moderator, so you just need to improve the ...
The phrase "the goals of the post's owner" can be understood in many ways (as can "strive to"), and if there's any definitive official guidance on what it's supposed to mean, it doesn't seem to be very well publicized. So different people can and do draw the line at different places. That said, in this particular situation, I'd very much suggest ...
https://superuser.com/faq has some of the answers you seek. (The last 2, to be specific.)
About openID... it's much more convenient to have one login for everything, rather than lots and lots for every site, don't you think? You can make an account on Stack Exchange, that's the closest thing to a SU account and bonus, it'll work if you get a question ...
Regarding your related question, the engine automatically deletes abandoned accounts.
When is it safe to declare an account abandoned? We came up with these
two rules of thumb. If..
the user has not visited the site in six months AND
the user has not done anything of significance, ever
.. their accounts are effectively abandoned. ...
