This question is to the administrator of this site. I used to login here with my yahoo email id (available as an icon along with fedora/facebook/twitter/openid buttons) and password. Now I see that yahoo icon is gone, hence I cannot login! I have a FAS account as well. I dont want to register in this site all over again with my FAS account. Is there a way to merge/link my yahoo id to my FAS account (anishjp) and thereafter click on the FAS-Openid icon to login here?

This was done as a temporary measure to mitigate spam. I have renabled it now. You can use the manage identities link to have multiple open id logins

Thanks Mether! I can see the yahoo icon now! Well, is it possible to change the login details for a display name? My display name is "anishjp" and it is linked to the username: to login here. Is it possible to link the display name "anishjp" to my FAS account username so that I can login here by clicking on the FAS-Openid icon?

You can use the manage identities link in your profile to do that as i noted earlier
