My idea is ...

Show my OpenID openid.net.

To get an OpenID is disastrously difficult. Having a google account already, the instructions are completely useless. Soehow I managed to get an account via this commenting section (I think), but i am still not sure whether or not it is connected with the google account.

Now then, how do I even get hold on my OpenID ID? I suggest adding a huge copyable OpenID string up to the right when logged in here at least. And possibly a tab Show my OpenID or as a part of Start using your OpenID.

Sorry, but this first encounter with OpenID has been a real pain. There's a lot of information written, but nowhere there is easy basics for a user to get an OpenID. The Get an OpenID page is truly a joke. It lies and has only useless information. People will get out in 10 seconds and you will "miss the train".
