After reading the blog entry announcing the StackExchange OpenID provider, I was anxious to add a StackExchange login to my account for redundancy. I went to update my account and clicked on the new StackExchange OpenID button. I didn't see an option to create a new login, only to use an existing one.

It took a lot of digging to figure out that I needed to go to http://openid.stackexchange.com; a simple "Create New Account" button would have been very helpful.

  • +1, however, shouldn't that rather read: "... anxious to make my current openid redundant"? ;-) – takrl Jun 24 '11 at 19:48

    I second this, in fact, I only found out what to do via this post. A handy "create account" button/link would be a great idea. – user159466 Dec 16 '11 at 16:49
  • I third this - I'd like to move off my other OpenID provider since I only use it on StackExchange sites anyway. Could figure this out until I found this post too :) – Jason Sep 20 '12 at 21:25
