I'm trying to link my stackoverflow identity to my organization's page on careers.stackexchange. I'm having trouble logging into careers at all.

I use myopenid.com (which is now dead) and steam to login to most stackexchange sites.

When I try to use the steam openid url, I do login to steam (confirmed by revisiting the page and it recognizes me. However careers.stackexchange still doesn't recognize me. It says: Invalid claimed_id or identity (Contact: , Reference: )

I'm using Opera (just in case that matters).

If you are logging in via steam, you should use this url as the openID URL: http://steamcommunity.com/openid/

If you don't use the correct url, you'll get the "invalid claimed id" message. For example, it is incorrect to use a longer url: http://steamcommunity.com/openid/id/bunchofnumbers
