|It's really weird the way this account and my SoMad account are linked. They have the same "Friendly Link" listed when you look at the profile pages and the points increase on both simultaneously.
Here is the kicker (sorry, I just had to try if it worked ): Using this account, I can upvote posts made from my SoMad account and both accounts get 1 Organiser point for voting and 3 Debator points for receiving a vote... :befuddled:

Let me repeat how all this happened, so the information is available here and not just in the email I sent to Chris.
- I changed my email address on CodeProject and later discovered I was unable to log in here. Trying to log in with both my old and new email would fail. I had to change my email address because I had been using my work email for the past 10 years, but now that I no longer work there, I cannot keep using the address.
- A couple of weeks later, I tried changing my email on CodeProject back to the old email and was able to log in on both sites.
- I tried doing the email address change here on RootAdmin, but as feared it caused failure when trying to log into CodeProject, so I changed things back again.
- I then tried linking up to my Facebook account (which is using the same email account as is configured on CodeProject), but when I then logged into RootAdmin using the Facebook link, it created a new account (ID 849) with my full name from Facebook and some of the information transferred from my original RootAdmin account (ID 787), but with the Protector role missing.
I have removed the Facebook link from my account, but that has actually not solved anything.
Additional note: At some point during my adventures, a couple of fields in my Professional Profile were cleared - at least the "Company Size" field. I am not sure when that happened, but it might have been when I linked up to my Facebook account and then deleted that again.
When I entered the field values and saved my settings, I received 250 Participant points once again (on my CodeProject account).
