I registered here because I’m working on some DeepSpeech things and wanted to share… but before I do that sorry I but I believe it is useful for me to just mention how frankly awful the experience of getting registered at discourse.mozilla was for me.
What the what ?? I believe someone needs to address this and if you don’t hear from folks like me - when they first register - then I guess nobody will say anything because the only people here will be the people for whom registration is a dim memory.
It starts innocently enough…
OK cool. I’ll use my github profile since it’s already logged in.
Oh I see, that’s a no-go. OK sure I guess that’s fair enough a little annoying just for a online discussion forum but I’ll do something else… So I click back.
Argh. Now I’m stuck.
Because it always tries to auto-login and takes me here. I tried clearing cookies, clearing session state, clearing local storage. No go. Just always loops back to here.
At this point it’s genuinely annoying but I’ll persevere. New incognito window. Try the google option.
Nope no google. Why even show me google if you won’t let me use it!??!??!
OK fine. Well, then, how about just using email?
Nope. After a brief stop off at the generic 500 page…
I see this error.
Again. Why on earth even have the email option if I am not allowed to use it? And how do you know I have a github account anyway (from an incognito window).
Let me just remind you THIS IS AN INTERNET FORUM
I don’t know what else ya’ll use discourse.mozilla.org or mozilla.autho0 or whatever for but in this case THIS IS AN INTERNET FORUM it does not need to be more secure than my bank.
What in the name of what? Has someone seriously been on the internet security happy sauce? Arghh!!
And if, you are wondering, the only way I was able to get on here to post this was to add 2fa to github (since it had somehow locked in to use github as the only way to login).
