I was on a question on apple.stackexchange.com, and decided to create an account because I wanted to give it an upvote. So I:

  1. Clicked "login" at the top
  2. Clicked the Google button
  3. Allowed Google to send my email to SE

At this point SE said no account existed, and asked if I wanted to create an account. I clicked Confirm. Then I was redirected to a 404 error. It looks like the entire URL is URL-encoded:


(I'm reporting this here because I'm assuming this is common code that is not specific to the Apple site.)

  • This just happened to me during regular login redirection, so it isn't isolated to creating a new account. – Jon Seigel Jul 25 '11 at 16:51
  • thanks jon. i just assumed it was a new account creation issue since it's probably rarer than login. – Kip Jul 25 '11 at 17:02

This is now fixed, and I believe it was a regression.
