Over the years, I seem to have accidentally created more than one account. When looking up my stats on Boincstats.com, I noticed I have 3 accounts, all with the same name. So far I've been able to login with 2 of them, the third still trying. Does anyone know if there is a way to merge these accounts so I have only one left?
Regards from Locutus76 from the Netherlands

There are only 2 SETI@home accounts named "Locutus76":
http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/user_search.php?action=search&search_string=Locutus76&country=any&profile=either&team=either&search_type=date&action=Search

Both are BOINC accounts (Not Classic SETI) so can't be merged.

Erm...thanks, but a simple yes or no would have sufficed. You really didn't have to paste 8 threads just to prove that it's been asked before. I did a short search and didn't find the answer straight away so I just posted the question if it's possible or not. I know what accounts I have, just not whether it was possible to merge them. BTW: according to boincstats, I'm listed 3 times.

the times that we give a simple yes and no answer the person inevitably wants more info. Be glad he spent the time answering you in a very complete manner

Well I dit say thanks and I am glad he took the time to answer. I just felt like I broke some kind of rule here and those 8 links were prove of that. Again, thanks for the answer. Live long and prosper... or... you will all become one with the Borg.

You really didn't have to paste 8 threads just to prove that it's been asked before.

The reason to post the links is not to "prove" it was asked.

They are for you (and possibly others) to read what can (and how) and what can't be done in the case like this depending on circumstances.
(consider them as tutorial about "Merging accounts")
