I have a StackExchange account (obviously) that Google Chrome automatically logs me into when I go to stackoverflow.com. When I search my log in accounts in my settings, it says I have my Facebook and Gmail account linked up. However, when I try to log into those accounts from Careers 2.0 to create a "link" between my StackExchange and Careers account using my Gmail or Facebook, it just creates a new account with no reputation. Anyone know a solution?

  • I am having same problem, I have my PC logged into StackOverflow using MyOpenId with 6k reputation points. When I try and login on another PC, the MyOpenId endpoint is not found and the google login has lost all my history? Did you resolve this? – jaffa May 23 '14 at 21:01
  • This appears to be by design, a Careers developer will have to merge the accounts. – Shadow The Dragon Wizard May 27 '14 at 10:25
  • It seems to be working now. The only thing I did was make sure all my StackExchange windows were closed, then deleted cookies and history. Either they fixed it or cookies did. – Blairg23 Jun 3 '14 at 0:50
  • Also, it should be noted that today when I clicked to comment on this post, it said I needed an account and only had options to "sign up". I made a new tab and tried the "sign up" option and at first it started an account with no reputation, then seemed to magically find my old stackexchange account and now I have 31 reputation. No clue why that worked. – Blairg23 Jun 3 '14 at 0:51
  • Cheers, no idea too but glad all is working now. – Shadow The Dragon Wizard Jun 3 '14 at 9:30
  • Hm, but my careers account is now disabled and I can't even find the information I entered :( – Blairg23 Jun 4 '14 at 1:35
  • Email the careers team then. – Shadow The Dragon Wizard Jun 4 '14 at 5:36
