I agree that linking MOULa accounts is unlickly to occur, I was asking more from a security perspective as this is what some of the shards do.

I don't know that it'd be any more "secure" (or any less secure) in general, but it does help with the particular weakness around changing email address that we're talking about here, and there's a definite convenience factor. But I'm always in two minds over these things: Forums have been hacked in the past and there's probably more incentive to do that with a popular brand of forum software than with a relatively niche, free game. My server logs show very regular and persistent attempts to get into the administration tools for a range of popular web applications.

Another reason linking them wouldn't be feasible is that we're only allowed to have one forum account, but can have as many game accounts as we like.

Valid point, even allowing one to login twice with the same account does not solve the problem for people who want more then 4 avies.
