Anonymous Registration


Register with just 3 clicks? Who of us has never dreamed of that. With Anonymous Registration this dream comes true allowing curious visitors to easily access your site without having to disclose any personal information.

Your frontpage will look like:

enter image description here


and the prospective member can decide whether to register as just a random 10-digit number or with an individual username. After having clicked Create Now a window with the login credentials pops up:

As you will note with the next step, Anonymous Registration indeed has created just another regular account:

and it's up to your new member to either delete the account right after registering, stay anonymous, or to personalize his data.

When using Anonymous Registration in conjunction with Member Avatars your member might even get a nice profile picture instantly.

Note:

Well, it looks nice and all, but I don't really see much usefulness since there is already a way to allow people to view your OSSN site without registering (i.e. don't install the "Private Network" component and just put a link to /home on the login page so unregistered users can access the site). What's the point of an "anonymous registered user" vs "anonymous non-registered user"? Just that the registered user gets a profile? I really don't see why an anonymous/curious user would possibly want a profile AS an anonymous user. If they like the site after browsing it, why not just have them register as a normal user?

A much better idea imo would be to give users the option to "anonymize" a particular post (to the newsfeed, to a group, as a comment, etc) by displaying a randomly generated ID instead of the user's name/picture. That is similar to how it's done at http://voat.co

Just my opinion - I know you and I don't particularly like each other, so take it for what it's worth, or don't.

As already said in the beginning:
A username cannot be changed in Ossn. You may change anything else, though, Firstname, Lastname ... whatever you want.

@~Z~ Man I see, some users are asking for normal accounts, i told them just change your username, so that would be sufficient enough i believe?

German ~Z~ Man Replied 4 months ago

You can't.
And actually I don't see no reason to have both options in place.
