That's what I do now but every now and then, I get logged out (clearing out cookies, new computer, bad luck, etc.). Will I be able to log in without using Twitter, Google, Facebook, etc?

Do I have to have another new name and password? I tried to log in and it told me I'm not right.

@GuiltySpark - Because Recourse looks like a nightmare I don't want to experience. :(

Nah, it won't be as bad as every one thinks and as its open source the code will constantly update and improve and before long many sites will be right at your fingertips, in terms of replying without even logging in to all of them :)

@TheGeek,
Went to reply and reported you instead! Lucky you are the boss!
Really liked your post, not for the change promised, but the succinct argument stopper approach - I will use it in future myself. :-)
Ok, if you are changing so will I on my next little adventure if it is better than this one, which I like.

Cheers!
P.S. ever been to here? Bewildering, so I'm with you ya geek:
Edit: Gmod, virus found in your link and removed.

@the Geek,
One big question:
Is there any way to stop that insidious, underhanded spammy-like underline appearing randomly in Forum messages everywhere these days?
I'm always looking for help and clicking on things and sent to sites like gambling sites and other rip-offs.
I wouldn't want it on mine.

Namaste

Btw, i would like to migrate my forums to Discourse as well.

Tnx!
