I just signed up on Meta (although, I thought I'd signed up before, but I must have been mistaken). After it created my account, it directed me to a generic "something went wrong"-type error page, and it never linked up my account with my Stack Overflow account. :(

Any idea what went wrong or how to fix?



I recommend switching to Google Profiles if you're having difficulty, for the reasons described below:


  • I'm trying to link this account to my OpenID (Google) account, but it's not working for some reason. I click the "Log In" button when presented with my OpenID URL, but it just takes me back to this account. :( – Brian Lacy Mar 24 '10 at 23:37
  • @brian as I said in the above link, I highly recommend getting a Google Profile. Looks like your IP addresses are changing between HTTP requests which means we can't securely map your GMail OpenID between sites. – Jeff Atwood Mar 25 '10 at 1:52
  • I see now. The profiles thing seems to have worked. I still lost my questions/answers on SF and SU however. Oh well. – Brian Lacy Mar 25 '10 at 15:14
