I want to make it so that if you have an account on any Wikitravel wiki you can log in with that account on any other Wikitravel wiki. This is especially useful for Shared:, but for people doing lots of interwiki work it's nice too.

My preferred technology for doing this is OpenID, since it's an open protocol that would eventually let Wikitravellers log into Wikimedia, Wikia, or even other non-Wiki sites with their Wikitravel logins. OpenID uses your URL as an identity, so that I'd log into Wikitravel fr: as "http://wikitravel.org/en/User:Evan". I think we could use inter-wiki syntax to shorten this to "en:User:Evan" or even "en:Evan", and allow logins from wikipedians as "wikipedia:de:Benutzer:Example" or even "wikipedia:de:Example". --Evan 15:59, 17 June 2006 (EDT)

This is now rolled out on http://wikitravel.org/review/ . There is more info at en:Wikitravel:13 July 2006. --Evan 14:12, 13 July 2006 (EDT)
This is now rolled out on all versions of Wikitravel; see en:Wikitravel:Single sign-on help for details. --Evan 16:37, 14 November 2006 (EST)
