    Accidentally created new account rather than linking old account

    Unfortunately I did not realize that my Ubuntu Forums account was linked to my old e-mail address, not my current one, and I created this new account. My old account is:

    http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=468777

    I do still have access to the e-mail address used to register that account.

    Set the old e-mail as preferred at login.ubuntu.com.

    Log out of here and back in - you should be associated to the old account then.

    PM me to let me know you're in ok and I can deal with this account and it's username if you wish.

    Once associated here properly you can change login.ubuntu.com back if you wish. Also you can change the e-mail here to the new one if you wish.

    Thank you for the reply. I followed the steps but it logged me back into this account rather than into my old account.

    Perhaps you came back here before changing the mail address - which would have just reassociated this account.

    I've disassociated it again.
