Single Account for Everything

  Under dev. review

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

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?

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....

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.

no. Please remember your passwords, or write them down in an encrypted textfile. No more "one for all" stuff, generally. They can be cross-referenced, datamined or worse. Just. Remember. Or. Save. Your. Passwords

i like the idea. But rather not used in the way like "google(+)gmail,youtube,etc it use". Btw, i wish people use more duckduckgo ,
google own and steal your things.
