@DavidMurdoch what else do you want? No username? You want me to spout your email all over the interwebz?

A very nice read, I think it applies to my site a little, as I am not forcing people to register, it is a added bonus for those that wish to have their own little place on the site. Or atleast, that is my wish. :)

I like this ^^, could you give an example of communicating benefits to users? I always like a clear "advantages of signing up" page, but have ever seen one in the wild? I always like those, because they give me an 'apple'-like benefits page. Which mostly has to look pretty.

You are certainly right about finding some real value to encourage registration. Does openID mean that people are registered to OpenID or does it fill in the fields automatically? I'll look it up anyway ;)

comment Mark input in forms as required even if all input is mandatory?
Mandatory, in written language is ok. Just google its usage. It is mostly used in signage. Given that the user is reading the web page this isn't so bad. Have ever actually said: ROTFL?

Achica doesnt really outline the advantages .. greatly. Its a small amount of text at the bottom. I dont force users to register, they can do the following things: upload images, vote, comment. A registered user can: upload images, upload videos, vote, comment, edit comments, edit videos/image thumbnails, gain points. But how to outline this to the users (and have them be interested?) Achica is more about signing up for ads.

@jonW I want them to register, because i am trying to get people to stick with my website. I believe (maybe wrongly) that having people register helps this. I want people to upload images, and it is more easy to have those images linked to their account than to a generic guest account
