Central Authentication System


I am starting to see more and more Discourse installs pop up (which is great), but one thing that really bugs me is that I have to create an account for each discourse instance, or have to link my google/github/facebook/twitter account, which I hate doing (for no particular reason).

I just wanted to propose that Discourse.org sets up its own oauth2 system/central authentication system where I can create one master account and use that to sign into other discourse installation (like StackExchange), instead of having to create an account for every site. Of course this should be an option in the settings so that forum owners can add or remove it at their will, but it would be great to see this in at least some discourse forums.

That’s just my two cents, would love to hear your opinion.
