I found an unregistered user that created (at least) four unregistered user accounts. He wasn't aware of that, so I asked him if he wants these accounts to be merged.

But is this possible for unregistered users?

No. The procedure is: user registers one, the other gets merged into it.

The source is an SE employee. Although the statement is somewhat dated, it makes sense: SE should not have to expend effort maintaining cookie-based accounts that will likely get lost or split again in the future.

    $\begingroup$ In other words: if the user won't take the time to register, then SE won't take the time to merge the user's unregistered accounts. $\endgroup$ – J. M. is a poor mathematician Jun 7 '13 at 1:09
