I wanted to find the posts eligible for archaeologist badge and came across the following link

http://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/query/77565/which-posts-are-eligible-for-archaeologist-edits-wip

I clicked on the Login link and was shown a page as below

After clicking the Google Open Id provided, I was automatically logged in as the user jon.doe11019 instead of being prompted for my Google credentials or automatically picking my credentials that I had already used as seen in the above image.

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
Did you use same Gmail account (in Data Explorer) which have you added in your login? –  hims056 Apr 26 '13 at 7:29
    
It auto-logged me into the following account ' jon.doe11019'. I did not see any page to enter my credentials. –  Patrick D'Souza Apr 26 '13 at 7:32

I would have preferred it if I was auto-logged in as Romulus or at least be prompted to enter my credentials? Can anyone else reproduce this? –  Patrick D'Souza Apr 26 '13 at 7:34
    
@Romulus Please see the links in the comments above. –  Bart Apr 26 '13 at 7:35
    
@hims056: I always log in with just one Google account and no other way. –  Patrick D'Souza Apr 26 '13 at 7:36
    
As well as Wrong user when logging into data explorer –  Bart Apr 26 '13 at 7:36
    
I think as mentioned by Bart the problem is "Data Explorer's login mechanism is not linked to the Stack Exchange Network, because Data Explorer is open-source and the Network site code is not." –  Patrick D'Souza Apr 26 '13 at 7:38
    
Should I delete the question? –  Patrick D'Souza Apr 26 '13 at 7:38
    
@Romulus - Nope. Duplicate question should be closed not deleted (if the question is well described). –  hims056 Apr 26 '13 at 7:39
