I do wish there was a quote and reply system so I could have replied in a much better way.

As far as how OpenID works here's the lowdown :- as well as

You could also look at to have some background idea why is this so useful/necessary.

Firefox 4 is also trying to use OpenID in a big way.

As far as my experience of using openid on your site is concerned, its less than satisfactory. Each time I have to remember my openid provider endpoint details from and then paste that link from there to the login interface. This is a pain I could do without.

Also I have discovered that the forum software is a bit heavy on the memory side or atleast feels heavy. I don't know if other users feel the same or not.

I do know of and while no doubt its a nice planet, it doesn't take into account artists who might not be part of a project but contributing occasionally. For e.g. both the bloggers nicubunu and grumbel, artists whom I have highlighted who use extensively FOSS tools for their animation/drawing etc. are not in those as they do not contribute to a game or part of projects extensively. But these guys need to have more exposure as they bring creativity and good solutions and ideas to art creation as a whole.

While I do applaud your idea of having a feed from that solution+ digital artists using FOSS tools would be a great asset. If they are exposed more (as in their blog posts) they are more likely to contribute further to the database or to specific projects.

I would like to see the OpenID implementation done right. As of right now, each time I have to sign in using my OpenID credentials which means I have to remember or bookmark the credentials somewhere/someplace. The whole idea and implementation of OpenID AFAIK is to make it a seamless affair especially for users like me and I don't need to remember stuff. Can something be done about that?

Also is there some sort of timeline to OGA 2.0 and perhaps a progress bar of the same so people could know.

One of the things you should do is have personalization built-in. In this page I don't see my name anywhere so its tough to know whether I have signed-in properly or not. I'm using openID for signing i.

Hi all,

 Newbie here. Neither a developer nor an artist but a fanboy of both. What I would like to see is a planetplanet integrated so one can read all the good things the developers and artists are thinking/finding/ have issues about . The whole zigbag.

Little history of planetplanet

The latest development is of Venus :-


Some developers/artists whose blogs I read :-

Read this one specifically :-


I am sure there are many more talented artists and developers who are making/contributing to FOSS games but because there are scattered, users/casual gamers like me don't come to know about the issues they are facing.


I regularly do read as well as but they are more result-oriented blogs rather than process-oriented which is what I'm interested in.
