Hey! 👋 It's nice to be here!
I wonder if it would make sense to have a shared authentication system among all forems. I'm not sure if "authentication system" is the correct concept for the feature I'm picturing, so let me try to explain how it would work so we are all on the same page:
- A user visits a forem, whose community they want to join. They register and create their profile, which gets saved into an upstream database.
- Later on, the same user visits another forem, whose community they also want to join. Instead of registering again and creating a new profile from scratch, their information is fetched from the upstream database. Everything could be ready to go in ONE click!
I think this would provide a better user experience. What do you think about this?
