What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 146 Stack Exchange communities.

Is this just me?

I just tried to sign up to a new SE beta using my Google profile, and instead of being redirected to the authorization page, I get sent to the Google+ sign-up page.

I don't want to sign up to no Google+, thankyou!

Is there any way round this?

Are you sure you didn't accidentally click something? Also see if Why can't I connect directly with my Gmail OpenID? helps you. –  animuson Apr 10 '12 at 22:00
Well perhaps you should ask it on Web Apps eh? –  Ivo Flipse Apr 10 '12 at 22:11
No repro. (Chrome 18.0.1025.151 Mac) –  phwd Apr 10 '12 at 22:27
Doesn't do this on a test account here (Chrome on Win 7) –  Rory Alsop Apr 10 '12 at 22:27
@IvoFlipse, I started doing that and changed my mind at the last minute... –  Benjol Apr 11 '12 at 5:03
@animuson, very sure, and it happens on two different computer on two different domains. Note that I'm already logged in to 'Google' on both computers before trying to authenticate. –  Benjol Apr 11 '12 at 5:39
@IvoFlipse, done now: webapps.stackexchange.com/q/25579/2238 –  Benjol Apr 11 '12 at 5:54
Worked around it by using my stackexchange openid, but not really a solution for other places I've already signed in :( –  Benjol Apr 11 '12 at 6:04
The question "I clicked a button on a Stack Exchange page and was directed to an unexpected/unwanted location" seems on-topic for MSO even if the answer is "it's Google's fault." Voting to reopen. –  Pops Apr 16 '12 at 14:42
