Hey there,

Here's the repro steps for this issue:

  1. Log out of your account on giantbomb.com OR open an incognito tab
  2. Navigate to one of the API token pages, e.g. http://www.giantbomb.com/app/gbenthusiast/ or http://www.giantbomb.com/boxee
  3. You'll be redirected to the auth page to log in
  4. Enter your username + password and click on "Log in" button

Expected: You are returned to your originally requested page (e.g. http://www.giantbomb.com/app/gbenthusiast/) and are logged in.

Actual: You are taken to http://www.giantbomb.com/

This has confused at least a few of my users while trying to link their accounts to my app (Giant Bomb Enthusiast App) since they never see the API token page at all and need to manually navigate to their originally requested page for a second time.

@alecgdouglas: Yep that's definitely a bug. I've created a fix for it which should go into a build this week
