Why did I just create an account?

First of all, when did they re-make this site? Used to be so that you could sign in with Steam, but even still, I had an account on this site.
Went on to create yet another account, but as it turns out, I can’t comment on anything – I need a Disqus account for that (Disqus being complete shit, unreliable garbage), is this a joke? Why did I just create an account? Remove the disgusting Disqus bs from your site, pls.
In any case, the mod I downloaded gave off AV virus alerts.July 27, 2016 at 12:00 am #166632ZeninKeymaster
social login was removed because it added 2 seconds to the load time of the site. Disqus has proved to be stable and fast and has far greater spam protection then most common comment systems, this is why it is used. We also want guests to leave comments. You created an account to use the forums, upload mods and use images.January 26, 2017 at 10:21 pm #170278Bugmenot004935Participant
I have to complain about the requirement for logging in just to download mods to “increase forum activity” (per the twitter post). Mods should be freely available to the community, not locked behind giving email / steam info, and judging by the activity in the forums, it didn’t work (well, besides this post).
Keep it convenient, if we want to become more involved and engage with the community and the site or thank a modder for doing some great work, we will.
Edit: I actually did decide to go thank a modder for this mod, and clarify in the comments that people saying it “doesn’t work” may just not be using it correctly, but it turns out I can’t. This login only works for the forum (as far as I can tell), I have to actually make a second account on this “disqus” thing to be able to comment on a mod. What kind of service needs not just one, but multiple accounts? Even if I were motivated enough to create two accounts, are there more? Perhaps after five minutes of browsing there will be a third account to create, or a fourth…
I appreciate all the hard work that’s been put into making this site, and it looks wonderful, but these community features are awful and highly frustrating for users. I won’t be engaging with this community as a result.
