merging 2 imdb logins

I have been a member for more than 10 years. My original ID was BarefootBoy, and I made many contributions (of all kinds) with that ID. A few years ago, imdb required that IDs be complete email addresses. I created a login for REDACTED which I have used since. But I discovered that Internet Explorer had cached my login for BarefootBoy, so I used IE for movie ratings and imdb adds/corrections. Today I went to make another edit, and discovered that either IE lost the cache entry, or imdb has discontinued allowing "legacy" (e.g. old style) ID logins. Is there a way to change my contributions and movie ratings, etc. entered as BarefootBoy to REDACTED?

Hi ACT_1

And email ID's token is ur0860122. Was my question not clear enough? I have the password for my original ID, but don't know how to log in without providing an ID that is an email... I'd like to get into this account and use it because it has so much history.

"Email" here is asking for your email for BarefootBoy

is this  "barefootboy@___.__" ?

 "barefootboy@___.__" is not an account ID

(Do not post your email address on the Boards)

You have a different account  for  "barefootboy@___.__"

that is not  http://www.imdb.com/user/ur0860122/

?

Sorry! I pasted the wrong UR number in my reply. My original Oct 2000 ID BarefootBoy (with lots of history) is :  http://www.imdb.com/user/ur0860122/ the one with the email ID from 2014 is: barefootboy@xxx.xxx (with a token amount of history)  http://www.imdb.com/user/ur56956732/?ref_=nv_usr_prof_2. I can only log on to the latter one now. I'd just as soon kill the latter one and add the email to the original one, if possible. Sorry about posting the email addy, BTW...

Hi Jay,

May I ask if you are still able to gain access to the account with the nickname 'BarefootBoy'? If so, we can help you to delete the new account and change the email on this previous account to your new active email address.

If you are no longer able to log in, we will not be able to merge accounts or change your email. If this is the case you will simply need to log in with the account under your active email address.


Cheers,

Steve
