I'm not sure I see the logic in requiring 2 different IDs and PWrds for games play and forum access. I gets quite tedious trying to keep the IDs and their PWrds separate (or even remembered).
Enlightenment please.

Originally this was a design choice made for security reasons due to the MyAlganon site/game tie-ins. I agree two accounts can be a hassle... things would have been different had the forums originally been worked into the MyAlganon page itself.
We've been exploring options to tie things together more easily (such as our Facebook login option for the forums) and are continuing to look into those.

That being said, there's nothing stopping anyone from changing their login name/password on MyAlganon to match their forum login or vice-versa. That at least keeps down the need to remember multiple passwords/logins.
I'm currently drinking a Pepsi. Doesn't matter when you read this, it's most likely true.
