UPDATE: I rephrased the title to address the real issue to some users like me.


(I'm sorry for the loss on the web site...Glad most of the stuff is recovered!)

I still used Google's account to login, which seems to not work any more but with a tweak like in the answer (see below) it's still possible. Today I found myself logged out so asked for a recovery email but after minutes I don't receive one yet. Is email feature functioning?

(And where's the right location to report this?)

OpenID2.0 Google log in issue?

I use Google account and recently started seeing OpenID 2.0 issue when I try logging on. Is there a plan to reactivate Google account (Google+ should work)?

    The email feature should work. You have to make sure you use the email address you used to create your account.

    Unfortunately it didn't work for me just now; I used the email address that I used to get notifications (, which I seem to have stopped receiving after Aug 10th. But this address is working fine for other emails).

    What is your username on answers? Also, just want to make sure emails are not going to your spam folder.

    Sorry for the delay. I tried again recovering via email but I haven't got an email. My account on answers is isaacs. Spam folder on my email server is clear.

    Since a few days ago I started getting OpenID http://yahoo.com is invalid that keeps me from logging in. Do I have to create my 3rd account using simply username and password, instead of social accounts (GMail, Yahoo)...?

    Have you tried logging in using your current username and password? I believe my account was originally created through wordpress, but I can also login with my username.

    I tried to type in my account name(s) but couldn't login with them. I think because using social account I might haven't set password on answers.gazebo.org.

    Since a few days ago I started getting OpenID http://yahoo.com is invalid that keeps me from logging in.

    By using email recovery option, I'm now able to logon with my yahoo account. I'm not sure how this upstream comment from Evgeny related (answers.gazebo.org seems to be installed standalone, instead of hosted service?)

    I guess there's no hope for google's account to be recovered but at least some socials are working so I close this.
