comment Where do users expect to find the “create new account” functionality?
@Racheet: Fair point. I admit I don't use Facebook myself, but it seems to be a common authentication channel for sites that don't want to force the user to create yet another account -- ideally a website would support both (at the cost of slightly increased UI complexity, I suppose).

Thanks for this. You made me realize it's silly to not include a sign up link on the home page, since including it would make a few user experiences more seamless at almost no cost.

My site revolves around user-generated content, so viewing does not require sign-in, but commenting & adding content does. So, not core, but necessary for certain key functionality. I see your point about users generally not signing up until they need to -- at which time I can show them how to register if they don't have an account, making my original question mostly moot. Also, I like how you can just make out "Dam that is one big cat" in your screenshot ;-)
