Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2008-01-01 20:06:29 UTC
Dear friends;

It might happen that people are sharing an email account. It might happen that people are choosing identical passwords.

I experienced that since 10++ days when some of the « Gangleri » accounts have been renamed to
« לערי ריינהארט » and since I used « special:MergeAccount » at also for the user « I18n » the list of accounts listed for my initial user name « Gangleri » contains only a few (2-3) accounts. This is not the case, see
The list at MergeAccountwas quite longer 10++ days ago.

Same happens if I call « special:MergeAccount » for « לערי ריינהארט » or « I18n » .


It should be possible to select options for MergeAccount to identify the accounts / wikis where
a) all three criterias (user name, password, email address) match
b) subsets of a) match.

Best regards Reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

Please clarify the bug report. What exactly happens when you use Special:MergeAccount on each account, what should happen, and what happened before?
