Please merge my old account with the current one

Asked by Greg Dubicki on 2020-02-09

Hi!

I lost access to my old Launchpad account, login "gdubicki". It's registered using my old email account <email address hidden>, which has been deleted long time ago but the name is reserved by the provider so I cannot recreate it. ^_^' Can you please merge that account with my current one? PS I would prefer to use "gdubicki" as login name of the merged account.

Thanks,
Greg Dubicki

In the circumstances it seems difficult to prove that you own that old email address. But https://launchpad.net/~gdubicki isn't a full account; it was just auto-created to aggregate imported bug comments. Perhaps we could just rename it out of the way for you, and then you can have that username?

Thanks Colin! Let's do what you proposed.

OK, I've renamed it to https://launchpad.net/~gdubicki-gazeta, so you should be able to rename your own account to gdubicki (on https://launchpad.net/~/+edit).
