"True" Account Merges Available Now

Previously I put all account merges on hold in anticipation of the update ar_cat was working on. This update is now available and is called a "true" Account Merge.

Unlike the previous account merge, MOST of the good stuff from one account can be moved over to the destination account, including, but not limited to:
  • the "oldest" join date
  • guestbook entries
  • actual forum posts
  • contributions/NeoPoints
  • FAQs
  • gallery and fanart submissions
  • your collections (own, want, completed).
  • Private messages**
You can read the full details, including limitations of this new merge, in the Wiki page I created called "Account Merges".

This type of merge is particularly appealing for users who have very rich past accounts and need to merge with another account. Theoretically there is no limit to the number of accounts we can merge together, nor does it matter when you do it (you can initiate a "true merge" on a former "merged" account if we can find the old account), but each account will require a separate Fee (or NeoPoints, when we implement the feature much later).

If you are a Wiki or fanart contributor and qualify for the free name change/free merge you can ask for a "full" merge or you can still use the traditional merge. If you are merging via the Name Change Fee, you also get to choose between the two. Please READ the documentation carefully to understand all the risks!

**please read the PM merge details

If you have a pending merge that is waiting to go through, please contact me and let me know if you want a True merge or the regular merge. You might always want to use this simple form to verify the options you want for the merge:

Epic! Now I have incentive to actually get one of these done.

Would you consider porting a portal to a wiki contributing enough for the wiki contributor? I don't do much for actual contributions much any more but I used to do a lot more

Hmm interesting. Its almost like getting a new account. I don't know though if I will go through with it.

Edit: Does this also cost $10?

You need a fee just like a name change or regular merge. Unless you qualify for a free name change as per forum rules or via Wiki/fanart Contributor status (linked in my post).

What about those of us who have gone through a merge in the past, but want some of the extra goodies from the current system?

Ah, so it'd basically be a touch-up for another fee? Gotcha, thanks for the quote Riddles.

Oh the wording might not be too accurate. What I mean is for 1 Merge request you can either get a regular merge or a "True" merge. In your case if you already did a merge in the past it will require a new merge request fee to do a true one.

Sounds awesome. :3

I'll just be waiting for you to push the neopoints option for getting one of these.

It's to late got me to do this eh? Should of got you to merge my older account with this one so my join date was August 2002 instead of November 2002. Not much on my Aug 2002 account anyways but the join date would of been nice.

Sorry, I couldn't think of a place to put this, but is there any development on the Neopoints front? Will a substantial contribution such as screenshots, box art and product information eventually be redeemable for a merge as NeoWiki contributions are?

No progress on this front yet, but the amount of NeoPoints for a Name Change will be significant (we're talking upwards of 300-400 points for yourself, and maybe 500+ for giving someone a Name Change as a gift). These numbers might even be conservative compared to what we do end up using.

Alright, thanks mate. I look forward to see if anything develops from this. Keep us posted.

Red, would you be able to get a Free Account Merge for something like Fanart or Neopoints if you had already gotten a Wiki one? Before the 3 year limit I mean.
