I have a SO account and have associated askubuntu account with it.

I log in using Livejournal's OpenID as myOpenID is no longer supported officially but after logging into SO, am I able unable to log into AskUbuntu. Also, I'm not automatically logged in, even though that should be the default behavior.

PS: I had myOpenID previously, which was there in my Ubuntu account, but the Livejournal login was not added to the Ubuntu login even though it was there in SO.

Question : How can I log back into my AskUbuntu account?

Below is the error page screenshot


  • Try logging in with other OpenID, then ask for accounts merge... that's what I would do in your place. Jan 21 '14 at 17:21

This is connected to the merge you asked us to revert a few weeks back. It left a few things in a bit of an inconsistent state.

I've removed your AU profile entirely. Please log back into Ask Ubuntu using your LiveJournal ID - at that point, a new profile should be created for you, and you'll find the automatic login working properly.
