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

Now that I understand that I need an OpenID (other than the default Google/Gmail OpenID!) to associate accounts between StackExchange sites, I'm trying to associate all my accounts. That works fine, except for this very meta account. The accounts tab does show the accounts of other sites, but if I press "Associate With ...", I get:

user Id 357313 already associated with another account

What's up with my account?

This usually means you have multiple, duplicate accounts on one or more websites.

  1. Go to Stack Overflow

  2. Go to your user page

  3. Go to the accounts tab

  4. Click "Clear Associations"

  5. Re-associate with each site
