    So you don't like it because it's something of great worth, but don't like the second factor that makes it more secure?

    Also, I'd hazard that Google/Twitter/Facebook are of more worth for most people, given the degree of identifying information in these accounts that could be used to maliciously take over other accounts (like your Steam if it's attached to a Gmail address).


    I'm very much for federated authentication (as auth is tricky), and Steam is likely the most common account for LAN goers to have - I think that this is the best option.

    The difference is that I don't put steam credentials into my browser at any time but I already do with those other accounts. And when you are accepting openid then there is actually no good reason to restrict it to one specific provider rather than give the user the choice.

    There was a link to that on Athena but yeah it probably could have been more noticeable.

    The above gibberish was badly strung together by me and is unlikely to reflect the views of Multiplay or anyone else, living or dead.

    Can we now link our multiplay accounts etc to it?
