  • Some recent sites - I forget which - integrate account generation into the first time you use the site, which makes it a seamless experience. Pretty simple - enter your bug text, and email address; after you submit, it asks you to pick a password, and there you have it, a user account. I wish more sites would (hear of and) adopt this model.

    Secondary gripe: the "repeat your password" box. Most people are fairly good at typing and this only serves as an annoyance. Whatever site it was that introduced me to this new sign-up style didn't bother, and I think they made the right choice. If someone does screw up typing, that's what the "Can't login?" link (AKA "Forgot Password", but that's bad phrasing) is for.
