comment Is it bad practice not to allow users to create an account (versus OAuth or OpenID)?
Thanks for the suggestion--I edited the question to call attention to my primary concern: whether it is bad practice to not to allow accounts local to the site.

Actually the mouse tracing information in the presentation may be pretty helpful. Thanks for the link.

Thanks--that's interesting. I may use that and simply have certain pages called with AJAX when specific actions are performed, though I'm not sure yet if it gives me all the information I need, or at least would like to have.

I wouldn't be restricting it to Facebook, especially since I'm not personally comfortable using Facebook for authentication (too much data associated). If I give them a lot of options is it still bad practice to force OAuth?

comment Is it bad practice not to allow users to create an account (versus OAuth or OpenID)?
Thanks--I had seen the first one but not the second. I definitely wouldn't ever rely only on Facebook to sign up. I would likely give a number of options to the user for OAuth providers, but I'm curious if it's bad practice not to allow any final alternative to OAuth.

A little bit--it provided a jumping off point and at least gave me some understanding of which search terms to use. Unfortunately they are prohibitively expensive for academic research in my case. I may end up writing a plugin that will just save all user actions that jQuery/JS can capture.

This doesn't really fit my use case, especially since it doesn't follow a normal site structure (I generally use AJAX as it's a web app versus a web site), and traditional web analytics doesn't tell me much about user actions and understanding.
