    Cannot recover forum original account.

    Let me explain my situation:

    I had a forum account with one e-mail, and an SSO account with another e-mail. When I logged in to the forum with my SSO account, it created a new volanin2 user instead of my original user volanin.
    While trying to fix this, I also created a new SSO account with the forum account e-mail, and now I have two SSO accounts and two forum accounts... and I cannot merge them.

    My good SSO account is linked to my bad forum account... and my bad SSO account is linked with my good forum account... what a mess!
    Can somebody help me? What I am trying to do is:

    1. Link the SSO account ubuntu [at] volanin.com.br with the volanin forum account.
    2. Delete the SSO account ubuntu-linux [at] volanin.com.br and delete the volanin2 forum account.

    Help please?

    I'll disassociate them - then log out and try again.
    Post back here if its fixed or not...

    Here is a FAQ that might help you delete the erroneous UbuntuOne SSO account.

    Even though you have almost the same email address on the forum and SSO login, they are different, try to add -linux to the SSO account
