I didn't think my StackExchange user (the one I use for chat) had a different login than my mi.yodeya user. It's always been pretty seamless navigating between the two. Well, I just reinstalled my browser and now I'm having issues logging in for chat (not for the main site).

Any help?

  • Your chat user currently shows Mi Yodeya as your parent site. Was it previously some other site? (I don't know why that would matter, but chat sometimes randomly re-parents accounts, so just asking.) Does it happen in other browsers too? Jul 3 '13 at 19:00
  • @MonicaCellio no, that makes sense. And I haven't tried another browser today. Jul 3 '13 at 19:25
  • What browser are you using? Jul 3 '13 at 19:26
  • @MonicaCellio Firefox. But I manually copied my settings from my old computer. I can delete all my cookies and try again Jul 3 '13 at 19:30
  • Did you try stackexchange.com/users/chat-login and, failing that, chat.stackexchange.com/help?

  • @msh210 the problem with /users/chat-login is that (and this should be in the post) it tells me re the openid user, This login is new to Stack Exchange Jul 3 '13 at 19:43

Deleting my cookies from stackexchange.com and then logging on to chat from english.SE seemed to work. I can now use judaism.SE's chat, too.

  • Note - you can always contact the Stack Exchange team if you're unable to log in and can't seem to fix it. We generally get these types of issues resolved quickly.
