In an answer for a MyOpenID login-related question, I find that it shut down as of 1st Feb 2014. But then why is the Data Explorer giving me the option to login using MyOpenID?

Please remove it from the login options.

    It's the data explorer, not stackexchange.com (you can see "Data Explorer" written in the logo) – ShaWiz Jul 24 '14 at 6:30

    Data explorer is.. special. It is also Open Source; I'm sure the project would love a pull request to clear this up. – Martijn Pieters Jul 24 '14 at 6:30
  • Yes, only concern is, user like me confuse to use MyOpenID for login. – Lafada Jul 24 '14 at 6:32

    @Lafada agreed, no doubt it should be removed, just saying it's a different site than stackechange.com and not under the direct control of SE staff. – ShaWiz Jul 24 '14 at 6:33

I have some authentication changes for Data Explorer in the pipe that include removing the MyOpenID option, so this is . I'll try to get them out by Monday at the latest, and then give 6-8 weeks for deployment.

    You really should get privilege to add moderator tags here in MSE, maybe limited to questions already tagged data-explorer. :-) – ShaWiz Jul 24 '14 at 11:58
