I was actually browsing to meta.stackexchange since my question concerns the entire network, but I was redirected here so I guess it's alright to ask this question here.
My problem is the following:
I've first created my stackoverflow account using my wordpress.com OpenID, but I then associated my real e-mail address with this account. Under my account settings I can see my correct e-mail address and my openid account (xxx.wordpress.com).
Now I wanted to signup to scifi.stackexchange.com. So I clicked StackExchange as my OpenID provider (since I have an account here). I entered the e-mail address which is displayed in my account and my password. However I can't log-in/register this way. It keeps saying that my e-mail address is not recognized.
Now I would prefer to set-up my account as following:
- un-associate my wordpress.com account (I hardly use it, and it's cumbersome to log in to)
- Set my StackExchange account as my OpenID provider
- Log in to StackExchange using my e-mail+password
- Log in/Register to StackExchange associated sites using the Stack Exchange OpenID.
Is this possible, or am I stuck to using my wordpress account forever now? I would really love to deleted my wordpress account and unfortunately SE is stopping me from doing this now :(.
