@slhck the question ban will kick in soon, plus the questuons and answers were kinda ok.
 
4:58 AM
@Nhinkle I seem to have been kicked off the bench once more
not sure what happened this time...
 
@KronoS it seems to think you're in the room. did you switch computers?
 
I went from mobile to desktop
 
you're on your "christianity" account again. try logging out of chat, then going to superuser, and logging into chat from the chat link on SU
or use the escape hatch from SU after logging out
 
nope still not on the bench
 
@KronoS try leaving all rooms first (leave (all), click on the "all")
wait how do you even log out of chat... is it even possible?
@KronoS what browser are you using?
 
5:07 AM
@nhinkle chrome
and then safari on the phone... cleared cookies, and cache on both
 
@KronoS did you try clearing LocalStorage?
 
Is there a way to merge the 'two' accounts... it should all be under one account
 
@KronoS sadly no

Q: Super-pinging users by site account number creates duplicate users, causes confusion and gnashing of teeth

Shog9It's really convenient to use the moderator-ping (@@<userid>@<sitename>stackexchange.com) to summon users into a chat room. Unfortunately, this tends to create duplicate chat users if they happen to have an existing chat account associated with another site. Which is a problem if the...

@kronos aha! this should not be so hard to find
 
GRRRRRR!!!!! Still no luck!
can you just invite me again?
 
@KronoS ok... um... try leaving all chat rooms, logging out of chat with the link above, and then deleting all cookies for superuser and chat.stackexchange. then log in to SU, and use the chat backdoor from there. it should work. @balpha chat login/logout is severely broken here :(
if that doesn't work @KronoS I'll add you again. it would be better to just get you back on your normal account though
 
5:14 AM
@nhinkle ok let me give it one last shot...
Grrr....!
 
May I ask why my flag was declined? superuser.com/users/flag-weight/80670 it's not really a huge issue, it's just that I like to know, especially when my flag weight really drops
 
@KronoS so no luck i take it?
@SimonSheehan I didn't feel that it was inappropriate. Although not technically computer advice, it was not explicit or rude, and was a logical suggestion.
 
@nhinkle that's reasonable, thanks.
 
@nhinkle unfortunately not...
 
no problem. i felt slightly bad dismissing it, but we can't play favorites, and it didn't seem necessary to flag
 
5:28 AM
this is kinda annoyting
 
ok @KronoS I'll add this account, too
 
I even did a complete uninstall of chrome... and also tested on ie9 and firefox 6
 
i wish they'd just fix this dang problem already, or provide a way for mods to do it manually even
 
wonders what he did to break the chat :P
 
@RebeccaChernoff saaavveeee ussss!
@KronoS rest assured, it's not your fault
 
5:29 AM
oh I know... just wondering what the deal is... I'm sure it's come random bug and they'll get it fixed soon enough
 
@KronoS I added your new account
it's not a random bug, it's... a deep flaw in how chat accounts work. it might get fixed someday.
 
 
9 hours later…
2:21 PM
@KronoS accounts are merged; should be back to working now
 
 
5 hours later…
7:17 PM
@balpha is there a potential of merging abilities being extended to moderators or does it require manual database intervention?
 
As of today, it doesn't anymore -- but I want to keep it dev-only at least for a while, so we know it's stable etc. And hopefully Marc soon fixes that doppelgänger bug, making that problem a non-issue for the most part
 
@balpha good to hear. If we encounter troublesome doppelgangers, can we just ping you or another dev and ask for them to be fixed manually?
 
sure
 
Great. Thanks for the help @balpha :)
