Multiple community accounts

There appears to be several of me here.

I am @Peter-Dave Sheehan 

I can also login to @PD Sheehan (tied to my personal email). I just renamed this (used to also be Peter-Dave Sheehan) to avoid confusion when tagging.

But there is also @Peter-Dave Shee and @Peter-Dave Shee2  both of which show up as "Peter-Dave Sheehan" when you open up the profile page. I can't image these two are other people. If you are... Hi! Nice to meet you :) What a coincidence!

If these other 2 were created by me... I am not sure how or why and I don't know how to log in to them to cancel or delete them.

Any thoughts?


The real @Peter-Dave Sheehan

Each account has a unique email address that was used to create it (or has been changed to it).  I'd try a password reset on the ones that are not you to see if you get anything on another address or alias

Thanks, Nic!

I wouldn't be able to try a password reset, because I wouldn't know which email address to specify. I may have, at some point or another used a +alias in gmail address for signing up. 

When I @mentioned those 2 unknown accounts, none of my known email accounts received a notification. And If they were tied to a +alias, my primary account would have still received the notification, I presume.

Therefore, I have to assume that either those account are not me or are somehow associated with invalid emails.

I'll just have to let those other 2 exist in the Atlassian community ether. Hopefully, my primary account will be sufficiently easy to identify by anyone wanting to reach me.

This was triggered by me receiving a notification when my "personal" account was @mentioned in the Community Awards post instead of the this, my real one. 

I don't think there's much more you can do!

Although you could try asking Atlassian to check where the extra two accounts have been used (in non-Community places) to see if they might mean anything to you, or to check if they have email aliases you might recognise.
