Why do I get @jon.doe6817 for signing in with my Google OpenID? I get my 'normal' @Muntoo account after signing in with Yahoo. I doubt @jon.doe6817 'stole' my Gmail password. (It is ~30 noasklertxkcd7h1sd035n7m4k3$3nse#+ long.)

EDIT: BTW, I have a few favorites/queries on Data.SE. These were not present when I logged in with @jon.doe6817.

EDIT 2: (2 Jan 2012) This happened again. I logged in via Google at http://data.stackexchange.com/account/login.

I've pinged waffles, but I believe this is just unknown name etc (OpenID isn't always very forthcoming with such) – Marc Gravell Nov 2 '11 at 7:19
It happened to me time ago. When trying to log in on data.SE, I was always logged-in as joedoe.[some-ransom-number]; then, all in a sudden, I was able to log in, and appear as kiamlaluno. I was not able to track if it were a problem with the OpenID provider, though. – kiamlaluno Nov 2 '11 at 7:19
My report was this one. – kiamlaluno Nov 2 '11 at 7:28
Did you mix HTTP and HTTPS URLs? There used to be a bug with that, although I can't find it now and I think it may have been fixed. – Pops Nov 2 '11 at 14:02

@PopularDemand I just used data.stackexchange.com (no HTTPS), which links to data.stackexchange.com/account/login (no HTTPS). – Mateen Ulhaq Nov 3 '11 at 4:49
I meant your OpenID URL, not the URL you used to access SEDE. Rebecca's answer to the question @jonsca linked explains what I meant, and states that that particular issue has in fact been fixed. – Pops Nov 3 '11 at 12:54
working on a mega cleanup at the moment – waffles Jan 3 '12 at 2:13

I just did a mega merge and merged your accounts and a ton of others, if any merges remain ensure your email is set to the same email on all dupe accounts and ping me via a comment here.
