How may I merge my Mozilla Discourse accounts?

Today I switched my Mozilla email and I can no longer access my Mozilla Discourse for u/adamhurwitz.

When signing into Mozilla Discourse the UX had me create a new user, u/ahurwitz. I would like to stay with my original u/adamhurwitz username.

Please advise on how I can merge these accounts. I still have access to any of the original emails associated to the u/adamhurwitz account if needed.

Much appreciated!


Visit the user admin page, and select “Transfer & Delete” at the bottom of the page. [image] Enter the username you want the account to be merged into, and click “Transfer & Delete @username” to start the merge process.

The best way to sort this out is by reaching out directly to Mozilla Discourse support. They’re the folks who can help merge your new and original accounts. Shoot them a message explaining the situation—mention both usernames (u/adamhurwitz and u/ahurwitz) and highlight that you want to keep the original one.

Don’t forget to let them know you still have access to the original email tied to the u/adamhurwitz account. They might ask for a bit of verification to make sure everything’s legit.

Give them a little time to work their magic. Support teams are usually on it, but patience is key. If you don’t hear back after a while, it’s cool to drop them a friendly follow-up.

Hang in there, and I hope you get your original username back soon! :rocket:

Thank you for the post. However, I do not see any “Transfer & Delete” option under the user settings.

User settings: “{username}/preferences/account”

Thank you for the post! How do I get in touch with Mozilla Discourse support?
