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 just got an invitation to Careers 2.0 and I accepted the invitation sent to my email. While filling the email information on the site, when I typed my SO email (which is the same address that got me invited to Careers), the system said that an account was already registered with that email address and that I should logout/login to continue.

After login in with my SO open id (which uses the very same email address), whenever I click my profile firefox says: Problem loading page.

The page isn't redirecting properly    
Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

I'm successfully logged in but I can't create a profile. Also, the invitation I received via email does not work anymore. What do I do?


I'm currently logged in, just clicked on my profile tab. The page says:

Get Started with your Stack Overflow Profile

Thanks for accepting our invitation!

Let’s double-check the basics...

If I type in my full name, email and location and click on continue to my profile.. button. A red label shows up saying: Hmm, that email already exists on another account. You will need to log out of your existing account and log back in.

Then I log out and repeat the whole process again, and again, and again, ...

I've got the same problem. – Taryn East Mar 30 '11 at 9:29

Fixed! We hadn't accounted for someone accepting an invite, but then leaving the page before creating their profile. Now we send you to the "Create a profile" page correctly in that case.

Scratch my previous comment. I use 2 different OpenIds across the exchange and when I logged in with my other OpenId it worked. Someone may want to take a look at that process though as it appears I now have 2 different accounts on Careers.SE. – Farray Jul 11 '11 at 1:26
