    ubuntuforums account name problem

    My account name, post owner name and beans was changed since Sep12th, 2013. Since I have only 1 post now, I cannot enter profile editing page. Is there any way to enter my old acount? On I can see my name which is also my old account. However, it seems I cannot use it anymore,can I?
    PS. with my old account I have 40 beans.

    Did you not see the pre-login notice that told you to set the same email in Ubuntu One as in your old account? The match is done on email, not on username.

    Please see this sticky:

    Once you've given us that information, I or one of the other admins will be able to help you get back to your old account. Please also read the sticky linked in that one.
