forum first login / auth problem



  • issue 1:
    Why is there no option to sign up with email/password I don’t want it attached to G+, FB, TW , or Github. There are people in the world who are not members or those 4 sites.

    There is no contact link for people if registration process has a problem - which can happen.

    Issue 2:
    Additionally it would not authorize github or twitter on older browsers. github button to authorize is not enabled with no error. Twitter gives error
    Internal error.
    Oops! Looks like something went wrong!
    /community/auth/twitter
    {“errors”:[{“code”:32,“message”:“Could not authenticate you.”}]}

    I don’t expect you to fix issue 2 because it is an old browser but issue 1 need addressing.



  • P.S. If it is because of a concern of forum spam there are the “tick if human” check methods.

    Issue 3
    You need to allow people to edit topic to clarify forum topics. 180s time limit - you need to have more trust in the community. I try to add clarification post and have to wait 20mins. I have never come across such a fussy forum with rule like this!

    That is a great way to turn of people making contributions.
