I have the same problem that was described in this and in this questions.

I received invitation to create Careers 2.0 profile, accepted it and was forwarded to "My Profile" page. Then I tried to fill in my details, received a strange error message:

Hmm, that email already exists on another account. You will need to log out of your existing account and log back in.

In the original questions I am referring to the problem was solved manually by the administrators. Can someone please fix this problem for me too?

Fixed - you should be good to go.

  • Now there is another error. The page says all the relevant info was sent to you, so ... Mar 17, 2011 at 14:41
  • Hmm - there was an error getting some data from SO but we were not able to reproduce and your profile looks ok. Could you try once more (and if it happens again let me know what you were doing when it errored)? Mar 17, 2011 at 15:49
  • The exact same thing happened to me. I recieved my invitation today and I can't use it. Should I ask it as a question again?
