I recently signed up for Area 51 with my stackexchange network account/ID, verified the account and logged in. I see the main page https://area51.stackexchange.com/ where I confirm that I am logged in. I click on the discuss link on the black menubar at the top, which takes me to the discussion zone. From here I click on ask question, which asks me to add a login even though I have already logged in with my stackexchange ID. Here if I choose the stackexchange login option then it takes me back to the main page, from where the cycle begins again.
