I was forced to login to Meta Stack Exchange to be able to login to Area51. Is this expected?


Yes, this is by design and therefore expected. The same is true for logging in to https://chat.stackexchange.com. I quote Nick Craver (Architecture Lead) from this answer

We changed the way Area51 login works a few months ago to route through meta.stackexchange.com as part of several steps to unify our login system

A few months ago would have been October 2018 or so but I can't find the actual date or announcement on that. Maybe Nick or Adam can edit that in if they stumble on this answer.
