Would it be possible to merge old posts with new?

I can log in to the community with my RapidMiner id but this does not match the email address I used when I first started contributing to the community many years ago. This means there are some 455 messages with my username (awchisholm) that it would be nice to link to my new id (Andrew).

 

What can you do?

Hi Andrew,

 

Yes, in theory this happens even automatically if your login credentials are exactly the same.  I will send you a private message on this in a minute to resolve this.

 

Cheers,

Ingo

I now have 2 accounts Andrew and Andrew2 neither of which is associated with my real identity at awchisholm.

Ok, this I do not understand - if you used the same email as in the old forum the connection should have been automatically.  I will loop in @bbarany who might be able to help us here...

If the my.rapidminer.com email address was the same as the old forum user email *before* the migration on 2016-05-26, then the accounts were connected.

Hi Andrew,

 

It took us a file to figure it out but this should be resolved now.  Steve was sending you an email earlier today.

 

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Ingo

Hello Ingo,

is it possible to merge my actual account with the old one? I forgot to update my email in my old forum profile.

Old one is:

http://community.rapidminer.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/1261

 

Thank you very much.

 

Best wishes,

Hi Vaclav

 

Unfortunately, there is no way for me either merge accounts or change the author of an historic post Smiley Sad

 

What I can do is to asssociate your new SSO ID to your old account. 

 

I see that you have made several postings with the new account, and these would no longer be  credited to you, so I guess its all down to the numbers. Would you be happier contuinuing with this new account, or would you like to switch back to the old one. 

 

Let me know if its the latter, and I will make the necessary changes,

 

Steve
