I just got an invitation to Careers 2.0 and I accepted the invitation sent to my email. While filling the email information on the site, when I typed my SO email (which is the same address that got me invited to Careers), the system said that an account was already registered with that email address and that I should logout/login to continue.

After login in with my SO open id (which uses the very same email address), whenever I click my profile firefox says: Problem loading page.

The page isn't redirecting properly    
Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

I'm successfully logged in but I can't create a profile. Also, the invitation I received via email does not work anymore. What do I do?


I'm currently logged in, just clicked on my profile tab. The page says:

Get Started with your Stack Overflow Profile

Thanks for accepting our invitation!

Let’s double-check the basics...

If I type in my full name, email and location and click on continue to my profile.. button. A red label shows up saying: Hmm, that email already exists on another account. You will need to log out of your existing account and log back in.

Then I log out and repeat the whole process again, and again, and again, ...

Fixed! We hadn't accounted for someone accepting an invite, but then leaving the page before creating their profile. Now we send you to the "Create a profile" page correctly in that case.

  • Scratch my previous comment. I use 2 different OpenIds across the exchange and when I logged in with my other OpenId it worked. Someone may want to take a look at that process though as it appears I now have 2 different accounts on Careers.SE.
