I cannot log in with myOpenID. After I click on the "log in with myOpenID" image, I get the following error:

Unable to log in with your OpenID provider:
No OpenID endpoint found.

It was working a few hours ago. Is this a myOpenID issue or Stack Exchange issue?


I get an error just going to their homepage, so it's probably their fault:

Plus, it's pretty much always their fault

  • Yeah, I've seen the wealth of myopenid related complaints on SO meta :D – ACEG Jul 13 '11 at 13:50
  • When people register with a myOpenID SO should take them straight to the page that lets you add a backup OpenID, with the message "Trust us...you want to do this" – Michael Mrozek Jul 13 '11 at 13:53

    @michael see blog.stackoverflow.com/2011/05/… the unreliability of myOpenId was a big reason for that. JanRain doesn't seem to give a f*k any more, and since MyOpenID doesn't contribute to their bottom line I guess that's .. understandable. Still *extremely bad sportsmanship IMHO. – Jeff Atwood Jul 13 '11 at 13:59

I agree there's something rotten in the state of Denmark MyOpenId -- but all your accounts are attached to google.

Why would you need to log in with MyOpenId?

  • I'm not sure I quite understand what you mean...I created my openid separately, by using a non-google email. Is there some other mechanism I'm unaware of? – ACEG Jul 13 '11 at 14:03

    if you have multiple accounts, email the address provided at the bottom of every page and we can merge them. – Jeff Atwood Jul 13 '11 at 14:10
  • Ah, ok! Seeing all the issues with myopenid, I now think it might be better to switch to my google login. I'll ask to have this account and my normal one merged. Thanks a lot for the heads-up! – ACEG Jul 13 '11 at 14:21
