I accidently created a second account. It took me some time to notice this and both accounts have credits. How can I merge the two accounts?

I'm afraid this cannot be done. Just pick one and stick with it from now on. You could fill in the profile info just to say that it's an old, unused account.

Ok, that's cool.

Now, let me make one more request, if I may, and if this is not possible either, then that's cool too, but I do need to ask.

Can you kill one of the accounts? The account that is not the founder of my team, named Brian. I would like to use the e-mail address of that account on the account I want to keep. I use that e-mail account for all of my BOINC accounts and I get confused every time I log in.

Both e-mail accounts are active, so if you need to e-mail me on one or both to confirm who I am, that's cool. It would just be easier for me if one account were to die.

Thanks!

What you can do is change the e-mail address on the one account to something else separate from the first two. Then change the second one to be the address you want, and just stop using the first one.

Of course! I should have thought of that myself.

Many thanks!

The email address does not need to be an existing one, as far as I know. (Correct Eric? Or is Pirates verifying email addresses?)

It did make me verify, but that's ok because I actually have three e-mail addresses with the University (TxSt) and they all go to the same inbox. It was no problem at all.
