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)

  • Looks like you have another account on Ask Ubuntu already. Did you lose access to that one?

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