Forum double sign in

Is there any good reason why we need to sign in twice to the forum? Once with a username and once with our number if we actually want to post something? Seriously annoying.

It has to be in that way including the Exetel staff :)

I do it too, and I'm the Admin. It was a decision made by John Linton years ago when the forum was still fairly young.

"It has to be thats way"? what kind of explanation is that? "John Linton made the decision many years ago"?

Why? What *possible* logical and sensible reason could exist for maintaining such a user-UNfriendly stance? Don't tell me thats the way its always been, because John said so. That is just a crap reason. time to put it to the board or whoever runs the show, once you log into your account, you should get access to the forum - a further registration and username, sure... but a THIRD login? Insane. Unfriendly. And achieves SFA except annoyance.

I can't remember if any reason was given for this system but my guess was to restrict posts to Exetel customers only and reduce trolls.

Yes this is the reason.
