I have an account here (Obviously) and when I am on area51.SE it shows up normal. If I go to discuss.area51.SE, it has a "finish signup" link after my name. If I click that it redirects me to login, which I do, and it never goes away.

I've duplicated the problem:

  1. Before logging in, follow a proposal. (You will now have an unregistered account.)
  2. Verify your email. (This step might be optional.)
  3. Signup for another site on the network using OpenID
  4. Click on "Finish Signup". (This takes you to the OpenID login page.)
  5. Click on the OpenID option you used in step #3.
  6. The "Finish Signup" link does not go away.

The solution seems to be to log out of Area 51 site and log back in. (You might get an error (http://area51.stackexchange.com/error?aspxerrorpath=/users/authenticate), but the "Finish Signup" link does disappear and you should be logged in.) Try that and see if it helps.

  • Thanks Jon, that did the trick – Ernesto Nov 21 '13 at 4:22
  • And you nailed it exactly on the steps taken ;) (I had a SO account already, thought when I went to Area 51 it would keep my credentials) – Ernesto Nov 21 '13 at 4:23
