Get OAuth login ability for old accounts
« on: 23:28, 23 April 16 »
Hi Folks. I prefer Google-based logins whenever available because it saves me from remembering, typing in passwords and it's more secure. My account is older than the feature. Is there a way I can enable OAuth login for my account?

A very valid question, but unfortunately it's not possible. What can be done is, you can create a new user and then you can ask me to transfer all your posts to the new one. But with this you would lost some stats, like the Likes. If you don't care about those, then you're fine.

Thanks I'll stick to username/password then. I just keep forgetting passwords :)

Doesn't your browser remember passwords for you?

Yeah - I was going to say, password managers? I use LastPass, and I don't even know my admin password for the wiki :D So you couldn't even torture it out of me.
