I know this isn't a Ubuntu technical question, though I did register my username through google. Now that I go to update my profile and save it says the email address is already registered. Is there a separate link somewhere im supposed to use to update my profile?

  • Most online sites don't allow multiple accounts with the same email, which could be the issue... (Haven't tried it here, but it is the case for many) – Wilf Jul 12 '14 at 8:56
  • Looks like you have another account on Ask Ubuntu already. Did you lose access to that one? – Seth Jul 13 '14 at 19:22

First, you need to gain access to your old account:

Then, you need to merge the old account with the new account:

Be sure to edit the new account to be "merge keep" and the old one to be "merge delete".
