This has always been an annoyance that I've had with this site. When reading articles on the main page, I have to log-in differently to post a comment, than I do with the Forum. This makes absolutely no sense to me. Having a different log-in to comment on articles on the main page, and also separately log-in to the forums, is not an inviting experience.

Is there anyway we could get the main page and forum log-in linked together? Where we only have to log in once, and we are acknowledged throughout the entire site? I know it's physically/technically possibly based on experience from other forums I frequent.
