How to access my previous account RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello All,

    I am a member of MSDN forums from the past 3 years and for login I used my previous company's ID. (UserName: Pavan Kokkula). When I left the company they deleted my account and I am unable to use my previous account.

    I made a request to my previous company and they again created an account with the same EmailId. When I tried to login using my previous emailId(which they created now) while signin it is taking me to Create Profile page instaed of my previous account.

    Could anyone please let me know what needs to be done to access my previous account.

    I have started a new profile (UserName: PavanKokkula). Could anyone let me know how to merge these two accounts into a single account and get the old profile threads/points into the new profile account.

    Thanks in advance...

  • You cannot merge accounts. We have that as a Feature Request here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/4703.aspx

    This forum is for discussing Profile Recognition, but I hope this helps!

    Thanks!

  • I hope this functionality will be eventually made and all requests from this forum (and few others) will be fulfilled, because, IMHO, it's a fair request to be able to accommodate all points and threads if the user is the same.

    I added both requests to our feature requests wiki page earlier today (http://social.technet.microsoft.com/wiki/contents/articles/4703.aspx). Thanks!

  • I like #5 from the top. I am still awaiting if I ever can become a moderator in a forum I visit and answer most. Right now I had to do double work, which is quite time consuming. I also don't earn any recognition for doing this work.

  • Naomi,

    Did you ask the existing moderators? Currently I think the process is that you have to be invited, but I'm wondering if there's a clearer path we can establish for those who want to become moderators.

  • I did a while ago. Recently Arnie asked again who we think is OK to be promoted. But I could not recommend myself. May be you can influence Arnie somehow? 

    Thanks in advance.

    Was this in a Forum thread? If so, what's the link? I might have Arnie's email somewhere, but if he's got a thread where he mentions it, I'll start with that.

    I hope I can help!

  • It was in the yahoo group for SQL Server moderators and answerers. Balmukund told me he talked with you about it (unless he meant another Ed):

    I have sent my recommendation at Arnie and Ed (Program Manager from Microsoft). Arnie didn't respond but Ed responded and informed me that Arnie is mentorning you for becoming moderator. 

    ---------------------------------------

    There was no public responses in the group on that original e-mail from Arnie except for one from Alejandro Mesa where he proposed 2 really good people to be answerers.

    My guess is Ed H. Different Ed. Sounds good. Then now's a good time to focus on quanitity and quality. Thanks!

  • It's up to you :) I deleted my replies as not too relevant to the original topic. Usually when I want something really bad, I don't get it - quite the opposite. So, I almost stopped hoping to become a moderator one day.

    Who are the Microsoft employees who own the forums that you want to be a Moderator in? Let me know, and I'll make requests. Thanks!

  • I know several MS people who are moderators in these forums: Balmukund, Jian Kang - these are the people I contact most with my 'moderator' type requests. I also had some communication with Rick Byham and Jan S on different issues.
