Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 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

I recently tried to log into SO Careers, and I'm having trouble creating my profile via GitHub:

Hmm, that email already exists on another account. You will need to log out of your existing account and log back in.

This seems weird, considering my SO account (with the email I'm trying to create the profile with) is linked to the Google ID I log in with.

Any ideas?


Edit: The same happens with MyOpenID, for the record.

I found two users for you, an older one with your myopenID and a newer one with your google openID. They interfered with each other. I've merged them and you should be all set.
