Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I went to look at proposals on area51 today, and I keep getting a popup that says that I have been logged in and am being redirected to the main page. It redirects me, but it doesn't actually log me in. I am using my Google account to sign in, and trying to do this in Chrome.

Have you tried logging out and then logging back in? Are you using a VPN? I've seen logins (admittedly, on chat) get weird if I was on a VPN. – Adam Lear Aug 31 '11 at 21:07
Tried all of the above, and made sure I wasn't using a VPN. Also tried closing the browser, reopening it, and trying again. – Ash Aug 31 '11 at 21:10

Part of deploying our new centralized login scheme revealed some bugs when we got to Area 51. Looks like you were affected.

It should be fixed now.

I'm getting the same problem. I try to login with my Google OpenID and get Unable to log in with your OpenID provider: An unexpected error occurred while logging in. It's not you, it's us. This is our fault. Detailed information about this error has automatically been recorded and we have been notified. – Herbert Sep 1 '11 at 6:43
