Today we enabled SSO for the forum, meaning that anyone who already has an account at opendesktop.org now doesnt need to add an extra forums account, but can login with same username and password.
Further, older accounts that were seperate before should be matched and marged, so older seperate forums accounts should still work and posts not be lost.
The profile picture should also be merged and shared between the two, with the main content avatar the one getting shared over to the forums.
This is a 48 hour beta-test phase, so please try it out and let us know how this goes in case you experience any oddities.
Happy Forums postings!
