At, we've resisted making any kind of log-in system like it was the plague.  We just don't like log-ins.  However, we're playing with a brand new web site tool from Google, "Google Friend Connect".  I don't know if we're going to hang onto it forever, but I want to get everyone to help me try it out.  You can "join" near the bottom of the main page.

The beauty of it is, you don't have to remember yet-another-username.  If you have a Google, Yahoo, AOL, or OpenID account, you can just use that to sign in.  You can see and befriend other members with it, and... the future is still a little hazy.  I started by adding comment panels to each store and toy page in our sightings section.  (Seemed like a good idea to me!)  Let's see how that works.

We're looking for feedback.  So what do you think?

I'll start with my own feedback. I think I like the concept (not needing a separate username, having "friends", etc.), but these panels all feel a little "beta" still to me. Considering that Google just released this about a week ago, I expect them to get a little more polished in time. (Hopefully sooner rather than later!)

Google is offering only a few different types of panels, but they promise more in the future. I'm hoping that they make some more we can use. The "comments" panel was the only obvious one that was a good fit for our site.

Brian, it's a heck of a lot better than how the army recruited during Vietnam.

LM here, signing onto the band-wagon.......well thats odd, all I see is two white boxes. It's probably just my computer that I'm using though. ARG!!! I hate this stupid thing! Pardon me, because what I'm about to say is very "off-topic" but, who here would like to see FansProject release yet another upgrade set, this time for Classics/Henkei Megatron?(Clip, Brace, Flail,and New Head that all attach in both alt mode and robot mode for improved G1 accuracy? I know I would, but it's very unlikely that it would happen.

I'm signing up ASAP.

Seems good.

Super! Just in case, a quick announcement: Somehow by brother got kicked off the list, and had to sign up again. I think Google's still working out the bugs. If this happens to you, just join again.

Anything I can do to help Google take over the world is okay by me!

Well that was fun and easy. Cool, now I'm an "official" member. :)
