A couple of days ago I did ask this question; I was not up to adding a profile in this site because I am unlikely to return so I asked it as an unregistered user(https://android.stackexchange.com/users/310401/user310401), counting on the cookies to allow me to follow-up with the question.
Well, the cookies went AWOL and I got an answer that I wanted to accept, so I was directed towards the merge procedure to merge the accounts. I have followed it twice, clicked on the links that were sent to me by email and after clicking the last one I got a message that my accounts would be merged into user310401 profile.
Yet my profile is still the old one and the user310401 appears as unregistered and I cannot award the answer. What am I doing wrong?
