I tried signing into MDN stage with my email email@example.com, I am asked to create a profile. I requested the username williamr (which I use on MDN production) and got the message 'This username is already taken. Please choose another.' I wonder if I already own that username under a different email address or if someone else owns it.
Email addresses on staging server are sanitized so the username is taken but it's assigned to a testing email address If you want to help us with the beta test I'm happy to either: 1) replace the sanitized email with your email 2) delete the user williamr so you can sign up with your preferred email Let me know which you'd prefer. Thanks :)

Done! Reopen the bug if it gives you any trouble ;)
Hmmm. When I sign in with firstname.lastname@example.org, I am still asked to create a profile. And my username williamr is claimed, which I expected. Any suggestions for how I can sign in? Feel free to delete the user williamr too. Thanks!
Option 2 it is. Now it should prompt you to create an account but the username should be free. *crosses fingers*
It worked. Bumping to verified. Thanks :shobson!
