Forums: Village pump → Can I reclaim my contributions after account migration?


Seems there has been some kind of account migration (maybe related to the Fandom-Gamepedia merge?) I had accounts on both Fandom and Gamepedia both called Kidburla. Now today when I logged in on a new device, it logged me in as user Kidburla with my Gamepedia talk page intact, but shows I have 0 contributions. And my actual contributions are shown under user account "Kidburla-gpuser". Is there a way to get it back so I don't have to have contributions in 2 different places?

UserProfile:Kidburla

UserProfile:Kidburla-gpuser

Thanks for the help! I finally got my original account back today, after having to wait in a support queue for about 3 weeks. I tried to post a page with more information but got an error "Prevent new users from inserting external links to unknown domains"! I am not a "new" user, but since my account was corrected, it seems the software thinks I am! Kidburla (talk) 13:39, 25 September 2020 (UTC)
I seem to be able to post links again now - here's the page I was referring to: Uniting the Fandom and Gamepedia login systems. It provides more information about why some people suddenly got "-fduser" or "-gpuser" suffixes added to their usernames, as I did before. Hope it helps someone!
