WSID / Forum Account Integration

Postby Balrog » Sat Nov 30, 2019 4:57 am

The WSID login system is now integrated into the forums. That means everybody will be logging into the forums with their WSIDs from now on. This will probably cause some confusion for the time being, but it should save on a lot of confusion in the future, since people are always getting their WSIDs and forum accounts mixed up.

Technically, forum accounts are still separate from WSIDs, but they will now mirror the names and passwords of the WSIDs. Any new WSIDs created from now on will have a matching forum account created for them at the same time. However, anyone that already had a WSID before 30 November 2019 will have to log into the main WyeSoft website once before their forum account is created. This is because we use password hashing and it's impossible for the server to tell what a user's password is, except when they are logging in, so the passwords can't be sent to the forums until you next log in.

Aside from cutting down on confusion, this integration also means that the VIP Members and Gaming Community forum groups can be fully automated again.
