I signed up a commitment to the Theoretical Computer Science Area51 under an email address that can't OpenID. I then sign in with my Google OpenID and don't see the commitment. I log out and then try to click through the email address validation link and sign in with a new (just created) MyOpenID account under that email address for which the email address's own domain has no OpenID of its own. This just creates yet another user account under a different User ID number, despite the matching email address and the clicking through the email address verification. The committment is not visible on this new user ID's page.
I want to get into the Theoretical Computer Science stackexchange that I signed on to participate in during the Private Beta. How can I do that?
And why is this made so complicated?
