Hi all, Devin Fraze, and me have silently been working on a new Go News project / website. One of functions needs people to register on the website. We’re still in the alpha stages, and wondering what kind of login style most of you prefer, I’ll give some options we are contemplating, but if you don’t see you preferred way please let us know, by commenting below.

You should explain what sort of function requires a login. If it is for a paywall, include the choice, "Ignore this function". Otherwise, include the choice, "Login with whatever weak password you like". It seems like most registrations today are about capturing personal information, not security.

Keep it simple.
People don't visit a website to admire the authentication.

I made that mistake myself a couple of times. (and I keep telling myself to forget about the authentication)
It's statements like "you can only make 1 first impression" and "it has to be perfect",
that subconsiously pushes developers to a waterfall approach.

All startups start with a proof-of-concept, try things, fail, retry.
And users don't mind. They really appreciate you're trying different things.

Last time I checked, even amazon doesn't allow users to register using their google or facebook account.
That doesn't seem to hold them back.
So, really whatever takes the least effort and then come back to it later. :)

Enjoy LeeLaZero and KataGo from your webbrowser, without installing anything !
