Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 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 was on a question on, and decided to create an account because I wanted to give it an upvote. So I:

  1. Clicked "login" at the top
  2. Clicked the Google button
  3. Allowed Google to send my email to SE

At this point SE said no account existed, and asked if I wanted to create an account. I clicked Confirm. Then I was redirected to a 404 error. It looks like the entire URL is URL-encoded:

(I'm reporting this here because I'm assuming this is common code that is not specific to the Apple site.)

This just happened to me during regular login redirection, so it isn't isolated to creating a new account. – Jon Seigel Jul 25 '11 at 16:51
thanks jon. i just assumed it was a new account creation issue since it's probably rarer than login. – Kip Jul 25 '11 at 17:02

This is now fixed, and I believe it was a regression.
