        I think a login is valuable in that case since it gives users means for personalization and security that only they can have access to.

        In my case, I am the sole user but I assume this is not the same for everyone. But if there is no login, would be using cookies instead?

        Thanks for the feedback. One of the issues I'm mulling over is whether or not I want to spend the time smoothing out the installation and initial configuration. I'm also curious if most instances would be for a single user, in which case there would be no need for authentication or users. Do you envision using your instance for anyone else or just yourself?

        Like you have indicated, this would be a great idea and one that would help reduce privacy concerns and help with Shortmarks support on the long run. It is a win / win situation - two birds one stone.
