I second this idea (I was about to submit a ticket asking amara to merge my accounts)
Additional problem in the same category I described in Forum just now. In some cases, upon log in using Google account authentication mechanism, a new account is created?! Instead of getting me to my gonadarian account, it created gonadarian8 with same Google account in the background! Don't know how's that even possible...
Can you confirm this issue and if so, when will it be addressed?
I am having the same problem here. I had an account (logged in with my facebook) and in order to contribute to TED, the system asked me to add a new account..
So.. if I delete the second account of mine, the one that I have already videos translated there, what will happen to those translations, will they disappear from the videos?
In that case I won't delete my non-TED account but.. Amara makes it difficult for the users in this way.. (not being able to merge the two accounts in one).
Edit: Oh and the synced videos from my YouTube channel, stayed visible (synced) only at my non-TED account.. one more reason that this is in fact a problem. :/
I see now the connection with TED. Still it is inconvenient if you would ask me. Anyway, I'll stick with this, perhaps something will change in the near future.
About the sync issue, it's with all of my videos. My videos from my YouTube channel appear *only* in my non-TED account. Whenever I tried to connect accounts --while on the TED-amara account-- I got a message in red that the YouTube page is already linked, but no videos appear on my TED-amara account.
" It is perhaps a little inconvenient, but imagine if the Amara software could identify the humans that use accounts? Brrrr. "
In due time.. :))
Thanks for your replies!
After 5 years, this is still an issue... It's so easy to check if an e-mail address is already in use in some account and then link this new login with the old account (making a second authentication with the old account). So many sites works this way...
At some point it would be great if Amara understands how annoying this is for the users and fix this, creating some tool for us to merge accounts and to let us to have one account with multiple login methods (Google, Facebook, TED, whatever).
Discussion between Itamar C and me continues in I seem to have 2 accounts, how to merge them?
