It would be great to have it linked to Wikipedia
in some way if that
worked out but I think linking it to Facebook is a good thing
actually. Efforts to lightly connect with popular social media sites
like that can help drive the knowledge,understanding and use of
great projects like this and open source/free knowledge in general.
I think using
Facebook to attract more people to the free world is a
healthy use, but to *require* using Facebook, within the borders of
the free world, is a fundamentally different thing.
That's not to say that the idea behind this translation platform is
something I'd personally not like, or want to use. It's the opposite
that led me to post here.
Ahhh ok. For some reason when I looked at it I didn't realize it was the
only option at the moment and I'd agree with that. My apologizes :)
There is a statement about offering other log in options soon so
hopefully we can get others (such as openid etc perhaps)
