I have two accounts under my name with seperate email addresses. verizon/yahoo I would like to combine them under verizon. Going through My account/change email won't do it. Request some help in this.

You can't, this is about the Science and you created 2 accounts, the best thing is to stop using one and just crunch under the other one. You COULD make a Team and put both of them in it, but still only crunch for ONE account.

That wouldn't help as the credits earned before joining the team wouldn't count towards that team.

Think of each project as a country and each with a different currency. The only think that links them together is the cross project id (CPID). When you merge an account on one project, one CPID disappears. Which one should be kept? How does one notify all the other projects that the change has been made? What about the stats sites? Unfortunately, there is no centralized account database which can be checked which means there isn't a way to do it.

I get it now. One or the other is gone for team credit. Kinda like original SETI. I couldn.t remember my accounts there either so I wound up with 4 or 5. Never could sort that out but remember it's about the science and with the competition that is hard too do.
