Will You Use New FB Login (for SAS)?


I thought I was seeing things but apparently that's an option now for SAS forum.

Will you use it?

Though I have always made it my practice to be pleasant to everybody, I have not once actually experienced friendship. I have only the most painful recollections of my various acquaintances ..."

Was that FB login button always there?

I thought I was seeing things too. I notice the Facebook SAS log-in today.


I don't know......I'm a bit suspicious with that. Have anyone used the new feature yet? I want to hear all about it first before I decide. lol. Facebook is personal for me.

1. Didn't know it was there.

2. Don't use Facebook.

3. Don't have Facebook.

4. Not planning on ever getting Facebook.

5. SAS is a forum. If I wanted to use Facebook, I'd be on Facebook.

Bingo—that's my exact thought on it. I doubt the majority of us are even going to use it.

So I just now logged out and went to log back in to see what you're talking about and all I see is a blank space on the left with an OR in the middle and the normal login fields on the right.

IOW, I have my adblocker set to block the existence of Facebook from my view.

If you are not getting the point yet, I am not interested in using Facebook.

Making good use of the Ad-Blocker I see.

I'm not particularly interested in using it either—which is why I'm curious as to why they added it in the first place.

Vertical Scope. Security. Facebook has my real name. Only recently people were able to log on as other users.

Nope.

Snowball's chance in hell that id use Facebook to log here.

Gather your party before venturing forth. And if you don't have a party, at least you don't have to wait on anyone.

It would probably be more secure to log in with facebook than to trust the login system for this site, considering some of the crazy crap that has happened in the past with this site's system. But I don't want my real life identity getting mixed in with my identity on here, so I'm not going to use facebook login.

Also I could have sworn they already had facebook login on this site, but maybe that was google login. Or maybe I'm just imagining things again.

Yeah. Frankly it kinda boggles the mind as to why anyone would want that. On any forum. But considering the nature of this forum, this one especially.

What are the odds we will get the slightest response about this from VS?

I'm going to test it and see how it turn out. I have only 2 friends on Facebook and I'm not under my real name so I'm going to have a quick look on the "other side." LOL.


EDIT: Wait a minute. Wouldn't that be like having 2 accounts? Isn't that breaking SAS rule?

Having two accounts would be breaking a rule because everyone can only have one account. That means the Facebook login thing could cause some problems if people used it and didn’t realise it was creating a new account when they already had one here.

It would probably use the person’s real name, which is another problem. Most username change requests have been to remove real names. It’s like how some members have an email address as their username - they signed up to SAS with an email address, not realising that was going to be their username.

This is what happens if you try to sign in with Facebook (I used an account with a fake name and no friends)



I clicked “Register” to see what would happen, but it told me my email address was already in use. I think this only works for creating new accounts, not for signing into the account you already have.
