I used two e-mail addresses to edit OSM. I would like merge one into the other, and continue to use the site with one user only. Is it possible?

I'm not aware of a way of doing this. If it is possible, someone in the #osm-dev IRC channel will know (that's where the admins lurk).

Hi asd, since there is no registered activity with your 'asd' ID yet, please make your own choice and work with the address you prefer and keep mapping. Or read these pages if you really wont to delete a specific address, answered by TomH. with a link to the Wiki.

First, this is not an answer to the question, which was how to merge two existing users.

Second I did not want to post my usernames here.

Third, you are mistaken with this 0 edits. both my users have edits.

Hi just look at this site, and add your ID in the blank, I just did ; Search Name: asd Mapper since: April 19th, 2010 Picture of the Mapper? Recent activities in No activity Changeset discussions: Participated in 0 and created 0 comments OSM Notes: Closed 0, commented 0 and 0 opened No Edits so far! Ps your name is your ID, so look at the bottom of your original question ?

I guess @asd is trying to say that he has registered more usernames to edit osm and now wishes to combine 2 of these. I personally have my hands full just looking after the one @nevw :)
