It's best to have a single account that can be used in every service related to Mint -- Forums, linuxmint-art, and this community.

I like the idea. Over the years I've had to Re-Subscribe many times. A bit annoying but anyway you cut it LM developers staff etc. work very hard and in my opinion receive little appreciation. This makes think how long it's been since I sent any money. BRB Headed over to Paypal

They don't even listen to beta tester reports before releasing final versions. No way these ideas are getting looked at. LOL

What about "Single Account for Everything" idea?
It would be very useful for all. It's incredibly, this idea is 7 years ago and still is in review?

Building off of andreymd87's suggestion, it would be nice if we could leave reviews from inside the software manager.

what about software manager? is it possible to link the list of installed softwares to the account to find them easier at next install. just like google play for android?

İt Would be good but looks like not going to happen because this post is 7 years old

Really good idea. +1 vote to it. It will be really easy if LM uses one account for LM related accounts such as LM community, LM forum etc.

It is a challenge as all the parts of the site are built from different "Prefab" parts and thus have different login and databases....

This must be a real challenge - oh my.... "Under dev. review" for 6 years meanwhile ....

So... if this means merging the accounts for community.linuxmint.com with forums.linuxmint.com and blog.linuxmint.com sounds like a great idea for me.

Terrible idea to mix comments with installable software.

I can understand that this my be hard to implement, as Linux Mint is not maintained by a single team in a single environment or location, however it would be useful and convenient for the end-user. I can image the only issue with this is the main servers from different services communicating with one another and the authentication servers via the internet in such way introduces more opportunity for security breaches.

Es buena, y también podría usarse para asignar algo de espacio en la nube a todos los usuarios de Linux MInt

This would mean using the *same password* for Mint Forums, Community and whatnot.
It would be more secure, and thus more Linux-like IMO, to use a different password for each site.
This is already achieved for quite some users by having a different account for every one of them, and I think it should stay that way.
