Slashcode Log In
Universal Slash Login
I'm looking at this from the point of convenience, as one log in to rule them all would be great. YASS could pop up and existing members of the (perhaps distributed) slash members DB could start posting right away, taking their Karma and preferences with them. Or perhaps not trying to be as fancy, even a centralised user database from which user details could be imported - for example, when signing up for a new site, you could have an option saying "import my user deatils from site x", at which time you enter your username and password for site x.
I realise that this may require quite a bit of planning in terms of compatibility across different versions of Slash, but just how tricky would it be to do such a thing? What draw backs would there be to such a scheme, and would anyone actually want something like this?
