Prefer to login NOT by external online service: Please introduce local forum registration



  • As far as I can see users are now (after migration from sourceforge) forced to login into forum through one of the big fat online services (Twitter, facebook, GMail).

    To be honest, I am annoyed by this rule. This is the only software forum which offers no local registration.

    Possibly it is because the forum admin have had no time to implement an individual registration.

    Please, make me (and others) independent from these online services.
    Setting up one of the many free forum software packages should not be to difficult.

    Thank you
    Peter



  • Those online services usually use more secure mechanisms for storing credentials than custom-made ones. Additionally, using these services, we don’t have to approve each new login, which is very time consuming (and annoying for the user who wants to contribute).
