I'm facing a big issue with being able to answer or log in to Stack Overflow to ask question.
Fist I wanted to post an answer. I was given the option to log in or type email and name. I could not remember my login as I don't post much here so I typed my email and name. I was given the message that my email is already registered. So I chose to log in then. I was given many options to log in using several external logins. But I could not find simple user/pass field to type my login. So I chose stackexchange assuming this is the Stack Overflow login. But my email was not recognized. Also when I tried to recover my password my email was not recognized. So on one side Stack Overflow says my email address is registered and on the other side it's not recognized to log in with.
So I did register a new account with stackexchange. I was logged in, at least it seemed like it. I had a user name in top bar and when I clicked on it I got some overview page. Then I wanted to ask a question. After clicking ask and going next in the "do your home work" page I got a message stating I have to log in to ask questions.
In the top bar there was my user name, but saying that I have to log in. So I pressed log in, chose stackexchange login (this is only place where it asks for username and pass) and tried to log in but again login is not recognized there. So where can I log in by my user name and pass? This is going like this all the time, just stuck in the circle.
In the end I managed to post this question by logging in with my Google account which created another account for me, but still when I chose ask question going next on "home work page" it said again I'm not logged in. There I logged in with my Google account again and then I got the form to ask question finally.
I have to say that this is amazingly bad. And this is not like a temporary problem. I had the same issue a few times before when I ended up giving up asking because I did not have the time to find a way around it.
