How can I transfer my MakeUseOf account from one login to another?

To sign in here at MakeUseOf, I use my Facebook profile!
I was curious whether it is possible to have all my current points and details if I wanted to transfer my account to another profile, for example Gmail.

    I've just added a way to do this from your profile page - make sure you're logged in to the origianl account, then click another social provider to make a new connection into the same account; you'll be able to login now from either, and you'll get 25 points for adding them.

        You're right. Very strange. I'll file a bug report with a our social provider, but in the meantime if you use the small EDIT link, you should see google as an option under there.

        If I recall correctly the option already existed before the user panel went from the right to the top.

        Even it wasn't that option before, than James is a great person!
        Since, taking ideas from others, considering them, and making good use of them, is a good thing!
        I do this myself too.. Since I work with web developing/designing too!

    The points are stored to the profile on MUO. Facebook, Google, etc. are only the accounts that are linked to this profile enabling you to login.

    That means you are able login using your gmail details and link it to the same account as Facebook!

      I see! Maybe that's why I don't see gmail, since I used hotmail!
      Anyway, thanks!

    log into MUO using facebook, then click +1 to share on google+, it will automatically connect to your google account.
