Idea: would it be possible to use the Doomworld account to register on other sites?

Recommended Posts

Just like how other sites like Facebook can use authentication tokens to register on third party websites (which can also opt in to use user data), I wonder if it's feasible to use the Doomworld account for third party Doom related sites. Ideas I think of are collaborative online map editors or opt-in AutoDoom useful statistics for bots.

It's much harder to run what you are describing (an Identity Provider - IDP) well, than it is to run a service that allows you to use external IDPs. Is this really something we want Linguica to spend time on?

I also suggested this to Linguica - I'd love it if people could use their Doomworld account to edit the Chocolate Doom wiki, for example.

That would be cool to be able to help the wiki out. I've been wanting to try and help with the D'16 wiki.

Yes, this is possible. If someone really wants OAuth2 integration with Doomworld they can contact me and we can set it up (there is no setup process for the general process and I doubt there ever will be).
