As Will suggested, I've stickied this discussion.
The MO user "kaddar" has 15 different accounts (at last counting). This has the practical effect that they are not accumulating rep.,
thus leaving answers instead of comments, etc. If possible, I wonder if their different accounts could be merged, and perhaps they could be contacted and encouraged to register.
@Emerton: and there we run into a chicken/egg problem. Until they register, I don't think the MO admins have a way of contacting them.
Ah, I wondered if that was the case. Thanks for letting me know; I guess the minor annoyance this causes will just have to continue.
Jacob Lurie, unless an impostor, should be relatively easy to find =) His page at Harvard is rather public at that, should people want to double check the authenticity of the accounts.
actually, often there are email addresses for non-registered accounts.
I've dealt with both "kaddar" and this "Jacob Lurie" fellow.
kaddar seems to be having some difficulty still, see the series of answers he posted to his own question here: http://mathoverflow.net/questions/38456/higher-direct-image-of-a-coherent-sheaf
It looks like he's not able to edit his question properly because he hasn't registered.
I wrote to Kaddar, and he's having trouble logging in, apparently because he can't create a google account for some reason. We'll see what happens there. Jacob, I think, had simply not realised that registering was an option, and upon being prompted registered one of his accounts.
Nearly always legitimate accounts have a valid email address, so we can do what's happened here -- egregious instances of multiple users can be pointed out to moderators who can then try to explain via email how to register.
@Gerry, indeed it is, and I've merged your accounts.
For future requests, it save some time for the moderators if you can provide the links to the relevant users pages, as lpenz did above, and is much appreciated.
@femto and @John, I've merged your respective accounts. Thanks for providing the relevant links!
There are two accounts associated to Chris Burdzy.
Sasha might well be the most common name for mathematicians, so we probably should be cautious here! :-)
Help! I've been unable to merge this account:
with my old one:
The new one has some reputation points, but is unregistered. The old one is registered. I was perfectly willing to let the old one go, but every time I go to the new one, click on "Is this your account", and do the "Enter your email address and we'll send you an email that will allow you to recover your account" thing, I wind up getting sent to my old account... and strange stuff happens, which I will not recount here. I guess the point is that nothing I do will merge my accounts.
I also have an older account:
which could be merged or simply gotten rid of.
Sorry for blundering around like this...
Jason Starr has multiple accounts.
Please merge Wang Tao into Wang Tao. (They are the same person according to the explanation given here.)
I merged the two Wang Tao accounts; neither were registered -- perhaps you could ask him to register, otherwise he'll probably just generate more accounts over time.
@andrescaicedo, done (already, not by me).
@davidac897: It's not very clear that the two accounts are really owned by the same person. Could you please edit the account information so that they have the same email address?
@davidac897: It doesn't look like anything changed. Did you hit the save button?
These two sholud probably be merged.
Please merge the unregistered user
into the registered user
