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

Apologies if this has been covered. A search didn't find the answer I seek.

While trying to log in to a beta site (Writers.SE, if it matters) for the first time today, I found that the MyOpenID icon is not to be found:

enter image description here

I confirmed the behavior on another site I've never used, RPG.SE.

Yet I remain logged in on the various other sites using the only account I've ever used, which is a MyOpenID account.

Is MyOpenID support gone? If so, please point me to the relevant announcement and/or documentation.

@The Establishment: I don't think so... – BoltClock's a Unicorn May 13 '12 at 14:19
@Bolt The answer is precisely the same. Anyway, it was more of a hint to do this. – Cody Gray May 13 '12 at 14:21
Duplicate answers don't imply duplicate questions. Besides, should this be closed, we wouldn't be able to do that anymore. – BoltClock's a Unicorn May 13 '12 at 14:23

We now de-emphasize MyOpenID as a login option due to the large number of problems they've been having lately.

You can still sign in with it (provided their end of the bargain works) by typing the URL manually or clicking "Show more login options..." and using the MyOpenID button there as before.

+1 I've been getting certificate warnings when I visit the site directly on Dolphin, and use my Google login instead here. – Andrew Barber May 12 '12 at 21:00
I think you should move Geoff's answer to that into this question and get rid of the other question. The answer is much more relevant to this specific question, and this question keeps reappearing. – animuson May 12 '12 at 21:53
