Details

In August 2013, I created this article:

<https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Guide/Sameness>

(See bug 856149.)

That page now redirects here:

<https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Equality_comparisons_and_sameness>

My content is intact, but the attribution to my account is not.  (I had problems enough just trying to track this down, since the current backend-of-the-day for MDN doesn't support clicking through to view the history for a page if that page redirects to another.)
Hey Colby,

sorry you are not attributed anymore! Due to some re-organization of the JS docs, duplicate pages were merged and this one is affected too!

Waldo had authored the current article a bit earlier
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Equality_comparisons_and_sameness$history?limit=all

And so I merged it with this one as you have found out correctly. https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Guide/Sameness$history?limit=all

You can either:

a) Edit the current page and use the edit comment to link to this or the other bug explaining the situation that you are one of the authors. (by editing your nickname will appear in the author list)

b) We can add a comment at the bottom of the article that you are one of the original authors.

c) We can also do both, a) and b).

Let me know what you think.
I can't seem to access my account anymore, because the only login options available are Persona or GitHub.
Luke, can you help :crussell getting access to his MDN account?

You should be able to sign in to the Sevenspade account via Persona - it's already linked in the MDN auth system. Did you try signing in with Persona (using this same email address you're using here on bugzilla)?

I hadn't at the time, no.  It wasn't obvious that I should have tried that email address (instead of my actual Persona account).

I've logged in and touched the article as of a couple of minutes ago.
