Ideas

We want your OpenID Ideas! Think you’ve come up with a way to improve OpenID? Recognize a good idea when you see one? We want to hear from you!

  1. this is inscrutably broken. Fix. Then fix explanations.

    Surprise! I may already have an OpenID... but have no way to use it that I can fathom from your instructions. "How do I log in with OpenID?" says I'll see just one thing to fill in... but I see two. And then I get shunted to a "go login somewhere else" notice... and none of this crazy stuff works.

    I'm a web expert, so this is epic fail. And have already given this 10x the attention I would normally before just running away.

  2. OpenID should be extended to supply information for registration forms

    I would be great to be able to have OpenID and its supporting websites using the service to fill-out registration forms, etc. As a developer I would adopt OpenID and register an account myself.

  5. do i really need to use external library or plugging to support openId ?

    I tried to read specs, but would read all that?
    Open Id should provide easy and obvious protocol and explain it from abstract.

  7. There should be a openId link to change, and correct your personal information, or update your

    There should be an openId link to make changes to your personal information,or to update your account, and profile when necessary. I should be able to change whatever information I do not want to display at random.

  8. Using Open ID with corporate business

    When opening an account, whether it is for buying a car, applying for a loan, opening a new cell phone contract, you always have to complete several forms. In addition to this, you also have to provide proof of employment, proof of residence and other contact details.
    My idea is to introduce OpenID to corporate businesses. They can have an internet based application (customised for their purposes) whereby clients provide them with the identity number, social security number, or any other form of identification. The corporate business then requests through their application the client’s details from OpenID. OpenID sends a…

  9. Arabic translation

    There are more than 338 million (22 country) that speaks Arabic as native language. You should add the Arabic language to the site-interface.

  10. OpenID works also for offline forms

    An OpenID user is asked to fill an empty paper form with personal data (at the gym, at the bank, at the video club, etc).
    He just needs to fill the OpenID field and asks the Form Owner to just request online OpenID details for his user.
    The Form Owner goes online and submits OpenID a request for personal data for that User.
    User receives the request, indicating the fields the Form Owner needs, and he accepts or denies them.
    Form Owners could also be warned when User changes any of those personal data.

  13. No Openid example

    There are no examples of what a person would enter in the openid textbox at RPs. The documentation was disappointing in that it tells at length about the openid protocol and what not, but a few sample openids to link it all together would have been a great help in understanding. I had a feeling that I am none the better after reading through the whole spec. I still didnt know how to "start" using it.

    After all, which non technical internet user would expect to enter http://yahoo.com as his/her openid in the openid textbox?

  14. Scheduled Login Access

    In the openID profile a user should be able to setup a schedule when the ID can be used. If I know I only ever browse the web between 10pm and 11pm then the rest of the day my id will not work.

    Of course loggin into the openid website itself should be an exception.

  15. Restructuring the Library-Page

    I like to add OpenID-support to my website with PHP and MySQL. However, my provider doesn't support PEAR DB, so I can't use janrain "PHP OpenID Library". I miss something like "Requirements" in the Library-Page (http://openid.net/developers/libraries/)

    EasyOpenID is based on janrain, which might also be interesting and should be mentioned in this section.

    By the way, http://www.saeven.net/openid.htm ends in a 404 error.

  16. OpenID should not promote JanRain RPX

    JanRain and RPX keep showing up throughout the site. This company is shown as the only example of a SAAS solution to openid. In effect you do not need them and can easier use one of the free packages. We were tempted to use them and they have been billing us for months now and there is no way to cancel the payment. Our bank told us that they have heard of more people having issues with them.

    Stay away and remove them from the OpenId website.

  17. After point 4 have a (BIG) link to go somewhere, e.g. "see if I already have an OpenID"!!!

    After explaining how it works, point 1, 2, 3, and 4, why leave the reader in the middle of no-where???
    First thing one wonders after reading is whether or not he already signed up somehow. That's the first thing you say on your homepage "Chances are you already have an OpenID but don't even know it! No problem — we'll walk you through using your OpenID for the first time." NOT TRUE
    You inform about how to use it, once you know you have an OpenID, but you don't give any hint how find out if you actually already have…
