After receiving an invitation to SO Careers I have tried to create an account and login afterwards. Whenever I try to login, however, I get an error message "Oops! Something Bad Happened!" that is not really useful in identifying the source of the problem. It seems to be a different issue than other members report.

Update: It seems other members experience similar problems, see e.g. this post.

I have experienced the same problem on Firefox 4.0.1 (MacOS X 10.6.7, all latest patches installed) and Safari 5.0.5. The problem persists for more than a week now.

Final update: After a couple of iterations, the problem has been solved (although the source has not been fully determined).

Thanks, this should be resolved. Would you try again?

No, still the same behavior. Again, I tried it with Firefox and Safari in configurations as listed above. For Firefox I still had the OpenID login cookies active (which may have had some adverse effect), but on Safari I definitely started with "clean" cookies. The result is the same in both cases - the error message listed in my posting. – user8472 Jun 19 '11 at 18:52
Sorry for the trouble. Would you send us a note at careers@stackoverflow.com and let us know what email address you are using to log on? Thanks. – Matt Sherman Jun 20 '11 at 14:12
