My account on SO is rmyeid, I can not access the account anymore using the launchpad openid authentication server. I tried to figure what is the problem with launchpad support on the #launchpad irc channel. deryck said that problem is with SO.
The following is the conversation on #launchpad
<aboSamoor> do you know who I can ask regarding open id support ?
<deryck> aboSamoor, I haven't logged into stackoverflow before, but don't you have to associate your account on stack overflow with your LP account?
<deryck> aboSamoor, my guess is it wants to create a new stack overflow account because the site doesn't know which account your open id relates to.
<aboSamoor> deryck, I created an account in SO using launchpad openid, what I can remember that my id was id.launchpad.net/~rmyeid and after a while it changed to launchpad.net/~rmyeid and after that I can not access my account again !
<deryck> aboSamoor, what is your user name on Launchpad?
<aboSamoor> deryck, rmyeid
<deryck> aboSamoor, and when you went to SO did you try to provide -- https://launchpad.net/~rmyeid -- as your open id login?
<aboSamoor> deryck, I tried and it gives me that it is the first time so it will make a new user account !
<deryck> aboSamoor, Stack Overflow tells you it is your first time and wants you to create a new Stack Overflow account? Is that correct?
<aboSamoor> deryck, yeah
<deryck> aboSamoor, yeah, this is what I was saying earlier. Stack Overflow doesn't associate your open id with any account that they have. I'm not sure why that is, but it's on Stack Overflow's end, not Launchpad's.
<deryck> aboSamoor, I think you need to contact someone with Stack Overflow about the problem.
