What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

I have accesed the superuser.com site and logged in with my Google based OpenID. Then I wanted to associate the superuser with the stackoverflow user. I went to Stackoverflow and selected 'Associate with Superuser.com' this went well, however my stackoverflow user does not know the serverfault or meta.stackoverflow users anymore, and when I try to associate I get a 'Cannot associate, because it is allready associated'.

Here are my user id's: Stackoverflow: 47860 (knows superuser) Meta: 129989 (knows serverfault) Serverfault: 13724 (knows meta) SuperUser: 4655 (knows stackoverflow).

So I have two pairs of associated users instead of one carré.

After comment of Jeff (2009-08-07)
Some more info: When I am in superuser and I associate with either meta or serverfault I loose my association with serverfault and visa versa.

I suspect you are using two different Google accounts? – Jeff Atwood Aug 7 '09 at 8:11
I don't see any associations on your account stackoverflow.com/users/47860?tab=accounts#sort-top – Jeff Atwood Aug 7 '09 at 8:12
It is fixed (I think the hard-way) by Jarrod Dixon. – Ton Plomp Aug 7 '09 at 8:34

I've fixed your associations - it's due to how Google makes this process a complete pain.

In the future, it would be best to clear all associations between accounts and start over.

This is a bug in association that was new today, and has already been fixed. Try again.

Nope, as soon as I try to associate superuser and stackoverflow it falls apart. Ton – Ton Plomp Aug 7 '09 at 7:36

Possibly something to do with the fact that Google OpenIDs are hashed per domain?
