Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I use Google Apps for my domain. Until recently, I was required to sustain a Google Account separate from my Google Apps Account for products like Reader or Analytics. This changed when Google began a consolidation of such split accounts, ostensibly merging Account data into Apps Account Data. I have so called "conflicting" Accounts owing to my use of the same email address for both Accounts.

On forced transition day, however, I lost the data associated with my Reader and Analytics account. Both are now empty. Google's help forums have not been helpful. Moreover, the support documentation asserts that I should have:

  • been presented with a conflict resolution page, allowing me to change the account name on the non-Apps Account
  • been able to successfully consolidate data into the Apps Account.

Neither proved true. I am unable to login to my old Account and cannot rescue the Reader data--I had meticulously collected feeds over several years. What are my options, here? Presumably Google still holds the data I so desire to export, but I cannot attract the attention of staff so that I might get my data.

Also, any recommendations for RSS readers?

It might be a long shot but try twitter. I was able to get the attention of the right authorities which lead to a speedy resolution....they were different companies. YMMV

I have never used Twitter, I'm afraid. Who would I spew twits to? –  troutwine May 3 '11 at 18:32
    
Well, anyway, thanks for your suggestion, Sameer. This question was shifted to Webapps--a graveyard in the StackExchange network if ever there was one. –  troutwine May 3 '11 at 21:52
