I only offered this because it is more secure than the original script.
"That we all saw was subject to SQL injections"
and it gives the admin a record of who actually sign's up for each account.
I remember when i first opened my server in closed beta i had an average of 70-80 people online but had over 900 accounts created some without even having a username or password just blanks.
and no record of who had created tons of accounts.
My whole point was, you can find out the account name by using the forums.
Players will want people to know who they are on the forums so by using their tags or posts you will eventually be able to map their in-game toon names to their forum accounts then back to their game accounts.
From my understanding this script(didnít look at the code) creates a game account based on the forum account, so both account logins are the same.
You know what, it doesnít matter. Players should create two accounts anyways, one to post on the forums and one to log into the game. If they did this the account logins would be different.
I forgot that OS did this too. I created two accounts there, one for playing and one for posting. I think if players did this, all would be fine.
Good script, bad practice.
