I know I’ve been out of the site for a while, but I’m the user DT Cooper and I was locked out of my account. I never saved said account, and now I’ve been locked out. Is there a way to fix this?

    $\begingroup$ You never registered your account because there is no DT Cooper in the database. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Vincent You just don't see it when searching because it's unregistered. You can find the account here. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I would strongly, strongly, strongly, strongly recommend creating a registered account, given your continuous use of the site. $\endgroup$

You can look at the question How can one link / merge / combine / associate two accounts / users? (Anonymous / unregistered / cookie, or OpenID / registered) on MSE and this answer.

Basically you go to the contact button at the bottom of this page and then describe exactly what your problem is.

On WorldBuilding you visit this site, which describes the exact process: I accidentally created two accounts; how do I merge them?

If you have two accounts that you would like to join together, please sign into either account, visit the contact form and select ‘I need to merge user profiles’. After you contact us, the Stack Exchange Team will reach out to verify that you own both accounts. If we can confirm your ownership, we will initiate a merge.

If you can't remember how to log in, go here and enter the email address you used to create the account you are trying to sign into.

  • $\begingroup$ @Aify I never had to go through the process myself, let alone with more than two accounts. I guess if you go to the contact page where you have to write a text anyway you can theoretically get an "unlimited" amount of accounts merged. Whether the community managers that will receive your request will grant it is written on a different page. In this case it looks like recovering the main account seems to be the main concern, which means the user just needs to visit the last link in my answer, enter their e-mail address and click "send", which will leave other accounts alone. $\endgroup$
