When did we stop being able to log in using the post reply prompt? Is there a particular reason for this?

Thanks.

Bai,
Some users found it confusing to be asked to reply and then find out they had to login/register. We are working on a more subtle way to point this out. Like show the buttons differently. It will evolve as we go. The idea is to show users the functionality is there for registered users without confusing people.

I thought It was part of the hole SEO thing Any way I feel it's good to have such an option to directly reply/quote.

I don't care for the change either.

Another thing I am not too pleased with is that the "login/register" screen has "register" before login, so if I use tab-space-tab-space it tries to register me as a new user.

I think the login/register screen could probably use a little massage.
