Right now we have reattribute, which means a deleted account's content can be attributed back to a user.

What about merging two accounts together? The process is, mostly, the same except you're not matching details off username or email address but from a user id instead. There are a few slight variations (e.g. around PMs, where you need to do a bit more checking to ensure you don't end up with duplicate rows in the DB, e.g. a PM sent to both accounts) but nothing huge to fix.

This is something I'm also very interested in. :)

Been waiting for something like this.

A basic version is barely an evening's work for a competent modder. Finishing it up with the PM stuff is probably a further half day's work.

I did a mod that does this ... however I'm sure it took me more than an evening so I would not suggest using it  :P

I knew there was something very familiar about this request.
I made similar request back on January 4, 2009.

There's one thing different about this request. That picture up there, that's not a mockup.

Picture?

Hate to say this, my friend, but I don't see a picture.

Also, the request I made is rather old, before a lot of other changes were made, so I hope that it bodes better results this time around. :)

Arantor

Bah, I swore I attached a picture.

Reattached, anyway.

Ah nice way to present it, mine ended up a bit more complicated (as usual) ..

The licence would make that interesting since it's MPL licensed while SMF itself is BSD.
