Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 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 cannot log in with myOpenID. After I click on the "log in with myOpenID" image, I get the following error:

Unable to log in with your OpenID provider:
No OpenID endpoint found.

It was working a few hours ago. Is this a myOpenID issue or Stack Exchange issue?

I get an error just going to their homepage, so it's probably their fault:

Plus, it's pretty much always their fault

Yeah, I've seen the wealth of myopenid related complaints on SO meta :D – Cristina Jul 13 '11 at 13:50
    
When people register with a myOpenID SO should take them straight to the page that lets you add a backup OpenID, with the message "Trust us...you want to do this" – Michael Mrozek Jul 13 '11 at 13:53

@michael see blog.stackoverflow.com/2011/05/… the unreliability of myOpenId was a big reason for that. JanRain doesn't seem to give a f*k any more, and since MyOpenID doesn't contribute to their bottom line I guess that's .. understandable. Still *extremely bad sportsmanship IMHO. – Jeff Atwood Jul 13 '11 at 13:59

I agree there's something rotten in the state of Denmark MyOpenId -- but all your accounts are attached to google.

Why would you need to log in with MyOpenId?

I'm not sure I quite understand what you mean...I created my openid separately, by using a non-google email. Is there some other mechanism I'm unaware of? – Cristina Jul 13 '11 at 14:03

if you have multiple accounts, email the address provided at the bottom of every page and we can merge them. – Jeff Atwood Jul 13 '11 at 14:10
    
Ah, ok! Seeing all the issues with myopenid, I now think it might be better to switch to my google login. I'll ask to have this account and my normal one merged. Thanks a lot for the heads-up! – Cristina Jul 13 '11 at 14:21
