Dear NQ, this is not really an idea but more a kind request.

 

As a lot of us (players) are going to gather in the Dual Universe adventure,  the need to decently manage our corporation will come. At FrogSwarm we are a bit elitist about security and corporation management and so, we already kindly asked for web API to be able to manage our members using our tools.

 

So in the wait of the API, can you at least, since there is no private information to be hidden here, make the user account publicly available instead of restricting it with a dual id logon (ie: https://community.dualthegame.com/accounts/profile/Silmerias)? Then we could crawl it with our tool to start using some identity security check like we do with Star Citizen since the citizen dossier is public available (https://robertsspaceindustries.com/citizens/Silmerias)

 

The tool behind the scene is asking a player to add a temporary code in the 'About me' section to be able to validate his account under our tool and ensure us he's the owner of the dual universe account.

That isn't completely necessary at this point ? 

 

I wrote the DU Discord Bot, and I had to figure out a way to authenticate users as well for the NDA channels there. 

 

Forum accounts provide all of the details you need to authenticate whether someone has NDA access or not, and can also be used to validate access in other ways.

 

This post covers how it all works: 

 

 

That is also why our forum profiles display whether or not we have Alpha access, in lieu of a real API that provided enough information to validate Iron/Silver/Bronze/etc backers who have Alpha 1 access as opposed to those who only have access to Alpha 2.

 

This is also the best way because the forums don't require authentication to view profiles ?

Yeah we figured out about the forum, but :

 

1. Forums aren't the best idea to authenticate even more when you already have a tool for it (community.dual)

2. There is no corporation information using the forum which we really want since we ask our members to be exclusive, no affiliation.

 

So having access to the user profile from the community website without the need to log in would be the best shot.

Honestly this makes a lot of sense. The game is in early stages, and people have to make impressions. The best way to do this easily and repeatedly is through a bio that is open to everyone.
