I've had accounts on both Hub pages and Squidoo using the same name and same email address. Why were my lenses transferred to a newly created account where I had to use another email address to access them? This account has a different name and so a different address.

I'm 100% on the side of doing a proper beta test and taking time to make sure every kind of lens transfers with ease - from the small simple ones to the big long complex ones - like mine! I'm less bothered by WHEN my...
