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 ...

Given that: 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 ...

For context: 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 ...

Yes. Use the contact us link at the bottom of the page and request an account merger.

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.

Go to https://superuser.com/contact and select I need to merge user profiles. Enter the links to both profiles and the team will take care of it.

By posting here you gave Stack Exchange an irrevocable license to use your content.

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 ...

You can report them on the Ask a Super User Moderator chat room. Flag away. You get new flags tomorrow.

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. I don't ...

You can go to your user profile and click on "my logins" to link another auth provider to your account:

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.

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, so…...

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 ...

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 (...

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? ...

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 ...

If you have two accounts that you would like to join together, please edit the ‘about me’ section of each profile to say “merge keep” and "merge delete" and then contact us. You will need to provide links to the two profiles you would like to merge - we'll merge the one you annotated "merge delete" into the one you annotated "merge keep". https://superuser....

Once logged in, head over to your profile, click on "My Logins", and then click on "Add login" It'll take you to the openID login page, select Stack Exchange, and create a new Stack Exchange openID from there. What then? If I normally create an account in Stack Exchange page, will the credentials from my unregistered account be automatically added to ...

I haven’t actually verified that this works — not today, anyway; I know I changed my password a couple of years ago (yeah, yeah), but I’m not sure exactly how I did it — but I believe I found it.  From your profile page, click on “Edit Profile & Settings”.  About halfway down the left side, under “SITE SETTINGS”, click on “My Logins”. This will take you ...

None of your questions have been upvoted - unsurprisingly because most of them aren't well written. No upvotes, no rep. You don't get rep for asking questions(unless upvoted).

On the top right corner, click the three lines and there is an option there.
