    Steam Authentication added!

    Hello MxGaming | Gaming Community
    Today we have built in Steam Authentication to the forum. This allows users to register using their steam accounts and already registered users to link their steam accounts.This is excited because both it adds security and a social aspect to the forums.
    If you sign in with steam, you have no password. As long as steam tells our forum that the login was successful, you will be successfully logged in. If you are already registered you can link your steam here: http://forum.mxgaming.com/profile.php?do=steamlink
    Your account will be dual authed, meaning you can log in with your Username and password, Or you can log in with you steam account. There is no limited functionality for logging in with steam. It is actually faster to register and login with steam then it is the conventional username password.

    If you have a steam account linked, you will see this button in the header

    There are a few limits, though. Only 1 steam account can linked to 1 user account, and you can not relink an existing steam account with a new forum account or
    You can login or register with your steam account here: http://forum.mxgaming.com/login2.php?do=login

    Due to an error in the code there was an issue when people previously tried to register using steam, We forgot to capture the openid passed from steam causing an error to happen.

    this has now been fixed.
