Adding my work email fails due to being used by a staged user


I am trying to add my work email to my discourse account but I get the error:

There was an error changing your email address. The address is already in use by a staged user.

I don’t understand how I became a staged user, but I would like to claim the email address so I can add it to my account. Has anyone seen this before?

See Post Discourse Migration Information – in particular,

To merge multiple accounts, you need to contact our Discourse admins ( with links to the accounts you would like to have merged.

Is it ok to merge the 2 accounts? I can to do it… just let me know.
