I created an account with blender stack exchange today, in order to ask a question, but for some reason the account is unregistered. I have other stack exchange accounts so I created another blender account.

It seems as if there are two accounts - one has a green profile picture and the one I use with my other stack exchange accounts is purple.

I cant reply to an answer or upvote it on my question but I can edit the question, through my purple account. I have no access to the green account.

How can I get full access to my account? Or can I merge the two?

Ok, I think I see what happened.

You already had an SE account:

However, today you came to blender stack exchange, and without logging in you asked a question (that is one of the ways an unregistered account gets created.) thus creating:

Now (I think) you went and "registered" you old SE account with blender, essentially locking you out of your unregistered account. (Normally for unregistered accounts there would be a register link at the top of the page.)

The easiest thing for you to would be to ask for your accounts to be merged.


So within 24-48 hours you should have only the one matt majic account.
