Merging two users


(Rene Groeschke) #1

Is it possible to merge to users into one? If not is that something that is planned? We have couple of requests for this in our forum. Alternatively there might be a manual way to do so?

Has been requested a few times before, but is very very hard technically.

If you have other workarounds, I would use those first. You can already change post ownership via the wrench button at the topic level.

  • Wrench (topic one)
  • Select Posts
  • Change Ownership

Changing ownership of posts leaves negative posts count

Is there a way to do this in “mass” somehow?

We too get lots of people who for some reason or another, create multiple accounts. We’ve had the problem on our wiki, but fortunately not on Discourse yet. I’m sure it’s only a matter of time.

There is a ruby script for this.

thanks for all your replies. the post ownership button should be enough for me!
