What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question

  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I'm trying out Careers 2.0 and I decided to hook it up to GitHub. I quickly blasted through the OAuth without realising that I was logged in using a different GitHub account than my own (a holding account I set up for an open source project I'm involved in so people couldn't steal the account name). But I can't now seem to disassociate this account with my Careers profile nor can I attach a different GitHub account to my profile.

This seems like a problem.

Have you tried logging out of GitHub entirely, then doing the import again? – Matt Sherman May 13 '11 at 15:24
That solves the problem! – Tom Morris May 13 '11 at 17:55

The answer seems pretty simple: log out of GitHub and Careers, then log back into both. Thanks to Matt Sherman (comment above) for the solution.

Try logging out of Github entirely, and do the same on Careers, then log back into both. (Your Github credentials can survive for the length of your session.)
