Some of the new features in the latest release of the forum software allow us to switch on different ways of logging in. This means you can use your Twitter or Facebook login to get access to this forum as well. We don't retain or use your password or anything, the login system instead uses Twitter's or Facebook's site to login and send you back here.

I'm thinking of enabling these features as they could be useful, but before we do I wanted to gain some ideas. Would you find this feature useful? Is it worth us bothering with?

We'll let the vote decide :)

I don't see why this is needed, I don't think many people use Faceache professionally, thus I don't see the point. For Twitter it is easy to provide a link to a thread, thus once again is there any need? To be honest I have access to all three, thus can see why it is offered, therefore will not be put off if you decide to allow login access.

I think it is a good idea as it should bring more people into the forum as they have one simple login. Will they have their full names?

I believe that you can pick your username, the login method is just that - you can still pick your own username if you haven't got an existing account or you can link the accounts together.

I think we should "suck it and see". Give it a go, monitor the results. Why not?
