    "Sign in with MS" does nothing.

    "Sign in with FB" does something.

    There is no place to post bug on their page. This is a MS property, pronounced "social". Oiy vey. 

    Are they only interested in poaching my FB account? For shame!

    I am calling shenanighans on this site. Who cares about it anyway?

    You should be more trusting: true, the pages look way too tidy for a social network; the pictures look professional and look good together. But don't let this fool you: it's just the work of dedicated and knowledgeable fans that want their passion to look good.

    EDIT: shoot, they fixed that already...

    Well I'm not giving any FB login info, and it will not honor my MS login, (though C9 does so easily).

    Riddle me this, batman... are they shamelessly grabbing FB account data or is this a login bug?

    The MS login popup shows when I add www.so.cl to Trusted Sites in IE9, but not until then.

    The FB login popup shows without having to add the site to Trusted Sites in IE9.

    Chrome has not got this BUG, others just proved to me... it's an IE9 special.

    EDIT: and I still suspect shennanighans where FB data collection is the goal. Nasties for that if true.

    I have been using it long ago. But, I just don't know what's the point.

    Leaving WM on 5/2018 if no apps, no dedicated billboards where I drive, no Store name.

    Doesn't work that way. When you use these OpenId and related federated identity services there's no way for the site you're logging into to obtain any (useful) data.

    I had no problems signing in with my Windows account using IE10 pre-release. What OS are you using?

    @wkempf: I think with facebook authentication they can request information from Facebook, no?

    OpenID rules, though!

    You can with OpenID too, that's what attribute exchange and simple registration flows are for.

    Except my OpenID provider has very little information about me to give away (compared to Facebook, at least). Wink
