Description

I have an account on www.osm and I do NOT have an account on help.osm.

Logging into help.osm with my valid www.osm credentials fails. Instead a "Connect your OpenID with this site" page appears, please see screenshot. The page mandatorily asks for an username, an email and a real name. This was so confusing I had to flame around in IRC.

So please make this page a little less confusing. Perhaps an explanation that the username, email and real name already used on osm should be entered will be fine. Perhaps this could lessen worries about an OpenID connections to external sites.

Thanks to Hannes for the screenshot.
