When I started playing this game in 2006, I discovered, much to my surprise, that you need to log in with your account credentials in order to be able to post to these forums.

Now, with the advent of EVE Gate, there's a second web platform where you're forced to use your real game account data to access the site.

MMO account data meanwhile is high on the list of malware authors, as you can see from this story, where one server was found, hosting 44 million stolen game accounts.

CCP rightfully urges you to not use your EVE account credentials, if you create accounts elsewhere (EVE related forums and the like).

It is my wish that CCP should take this notion one step further, lead by example and force you to use a different login for the forums/EVE Gate by creating something I would label as "web login" for your EVE account(s). This should be different from your real game account (easy enough to check for CCP) and should be used to access/interact with these forums and EVE Gate.

I do hope that enough players share my point of view and support this proposal, so that the CSM can make this a priority topic on its list.

/signed for sure.

I might even go one step further and suggest to separate account management as well. Basically, the account management login would be where you manage everything else. Maybe even optionally offer RSA authenticators for cheap (like Blizzard did).

The more secure, the better!

I thought about this, too. But decided to not include it in my proposal but instead try to get there step by step.

I was also thinking about this as I signed on to Eve-Gate which was so poorly linked on the main page I had to get the link from in game chat.

Perfectly logical, better for players, in the end better for the GM department. Separate logins each for the client, forums, and spacebook.

Forcing security measures on people just ****es them off, and very rarely actually makes anything more secure. Making it an option? Sure, I'd be fine with that. But don't force it.

I support a separate login for web services. But account services and in game IMO must remain the same or allow account sharing.

The accounts of EVE and EVE-Gate and these forums should be seperated - in my opinion, the only case in which the account credentials should be used, is to log into the game itself!

Yep ... couldn't find a "visible" Link to EVE-Gate, too ... this should be fixed as well ;)
