Secondary login

Tags: #<Tag:0x00007f00bdf40820>

There should be a secondary login option for the forums here, as one can’t log in if MB is down or it is unreachable.

I assume this is connected to Can't connect via Comcast Xfinity?

Pretty much, yeah. :frowning:

Requiring a musicbrainz account makes it slightly harder to post to the forums.
If you have another way to login it would make it easier to automatically create accounts and spam.

The main reason for requiring a MusicBrainz login (which we’re also working on moving to be a MetaBrainz login) is that you have one account across all our sites, which means that there is one identity making it easier for community members to recognise each other.

I see your issue, but I’m not sure there’s a reasonable way to implement it currently without opening the door for accounts created outside of MB and thus detached from the wider community.
