When writing an answer on a site where you don't have an account or are not logged in, below the answer entry textbox are options to create an account or continue as guest by providing a nickname and email.
I had written an answer of several paragraphs on a network site, clicked "Sign up with Google" (resulting in association to my existing network-wide profile) but after doing so instead of showing my answer to be posted, only the first five or six words were retained. I know that I had no account on this site previously because I just received the association bonus... I cannot tell whether the bug also affects totally new users or those with accounts but who are not logged in.
This is a very unwelcoming user experience. Please fix it.
If the intended workflow is to click "Post Answer" first and associate the account afterwards, then the sign up options should not be shown until the answer is posted, and certainly not above the Post Answer button.
This problem also occurs if you already have an account on the site, and click 'sign up with google' (which allows you to successfully log in).
