Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I created an OSM account a year ago but I had not contributed to OSM using that account. A few days before, I created a new account ( as I had forgotten that I had an existing OSM account) using the same reference email that I had used to make my first OSM account. OSM accepted the same email account and I continued to contribute to HOT'S Tasking Manager using the newly created account. But now, I am having a problem with my newly created OSM account while logging in as OSM recognizes my old OSM username instead of the new one. Even if I use my old OSM account instead of the new one, all the progress that I made in my new account will not be reflected on my old account. Is there anything that I can do to log in into my new OSM account? Can u help me?

For getting help it would be helpful to mention the user names affected.

You need to contact the system admins to resolve your problems.

In any case you've obviously inadvertently used two different e-mail addresses (you can't create two accounts with -exactly- the same e-mail address).
