Eskimo North StatusNet supports the OpenID standard for single signon between Web sites. OpenID lets you log into many different Web sites without using a different password for each. (See Wikipedia's OpenID article for more information.)
If you already have an account on Eskimo North StatusNet, you can login with your username and password as usual. To use OpenID in the future, you can add an OpenID to your account after you have logged in normally.
There are many Public OpenID providers, and you may already have an OpenID-enabled account on another service.
