I've seen this behavior on multiple meta sites, for example:

  1. Ask Ubuntu Meta
  2. Magento SE Meta
  3. Meta SO

As soon as you choose to add a new login (To be honest I only tried Google, Facebook and the OpenId box), you get redirected to a 404 page at [meta site url]/users/authenticate. Example.

In my opinion, since when trying to login (i.e. first time login) on a meta site it redirects to the login page of its main, the "Add more logins" page on meta should also redirect to its main "add more logins" page. I think this would just make it more consistent.


This will be fixed in build 3737 on MSO, and build 2860 on other sites.

The "meta" build is used on both MSO and MSE, but MSE is not a "child meta" and is not affected by this issue.
