I am a member at Area51, and have been since October of last year. However, I haven't been able to log in since March or so.

When I attempt to log in I see an error like:

Unable to log in with your OpenID provider:

An unexpected error occurred while logging in. It's not you, it's us. This is our fault. Detailed information about this error has automatically been recorded and we have been notified.

There is something wrong with my OpenID. However, when I take a look at my OpenID page, even though I have over 12 failed attempts to validate Area 51, I was able to authenticate Data.SE just yesterday.

If I type area51.meta.stackexchange.com; I authenticate and so am able to post this question here. But if I type area51.stackexchange.com, I don't authenticate, and end up back at the problem with the OpenID error when I try to enter my credentials.

What is going on here? How can I get into Area51 again.
