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

I was trying to create a new proposal and when I click the create button, I got sent back tot the first page with this error message.

"name and email, or your OpenID, are missing"

My profile looked OK to me, it had my name & email address and I'd clicked on the verification link in the email too.

What had happened was I was using an account that was recognising me from a cookie rather than a registered account.

The error didn't really make that clear.

Well... your openid was missing... – juan Jun 18 '10 at 14:55

This is fixed now. Unregistered users with verified email addresses are now able to create proposals and post example questions.
