What do you advise they do? 


IMO, they dont need to log into anywebsite besides these forums and the PSN on the ps3 with their login info, so i adivse if you NEED to sign up for this site, use different credentials then the ones you supplied to the PSN.

 

...you really had to ask?

Yo dawg I heard you liked quantum mechanics so I didn't do anything, and I did something at the same time.

best to ERR on the side of caution my friend..

anyone can say anything they wish about how "secure it is"..jhe can claim it works how ever he wishes to claim it..

 

HE DOESNT OFFER UP logging in with OTHER INFO, and tagging your forum handle,, he said "PSN ACCOUNT"

 

/FAIL


He's working on something exactly like the Twitter API. Where you sign into the site, without them getting your login info, only your screen name so they can get trophy info.

 

The login system is nearly the same as the Twitter API. There are tonnes of sites that force you to login with your Twitter info. None of my info has been taken from me.

 

I assure you that your info would not be stolen from this login method. This has been posted before (the script he uses) and people were all like "wow that's cool kudos", and now when it's in use it's like "OMG HAX U STEL ACNTS".

 

If you're not going to support him in trying to make a PSN api for people to get trophy info and account stats easily then don't login. Easy as that.

There are no ideas here for you. This can be for a couple of reasons:
A) You have not submitted any ideas yet. Why not fix that and submit something.
B) Your idea hasn't been approved yet. Hang in there.
MY IDEA NEEDS TO BE APPROVED?????????

This will be my final post in this thread.

 

I'm not helping with this project, I'm just trying to show you guys that this cannot give him your info.

 

Let me explain the login link.

https://store.playstation.com/external/index.vm?returnURL=http://api.geekweb.org/psn/community/index.php

https://store.playstation.com/external/index.vm is the PlayStation Store login. You login to the PlayStation Store. When you are done logging in, this happens:

?returnURL=http://api.geekweb.org/psn/community/index.php That takes you back to his site with your Screen Name. Nothing else. It just displays in your posts.

Read this for more information. (No login, just read)

Well said. Notice how the OP or the other people never once mentioned to take that route?

Guys, I do like that you can spot a scam when you see one, but this can't be used in any way to scam people. It uses the OFFICIAL playstation.com login, if you notice when you click the link to log in it will even take you to playstation.com, after you log in, playstation.com passes on a session ID to whatever site, then that site can turn that session ID into a PSN ID by using playstation.com.

None of the sign-in info is passed on.

 

The site that has been developed is is entirely for web developers to use and encorporate PSN features into a site. If you don't understand anything of what I've written then there's no need for you to register/post on the site in question since you obviously aren't a web devloper.

I can't believe the responses to this thread from people who obviously have no idea about the technology being utilised.

 

In face of all the evidence of it being used by many companies (Media Molecule, et al) and the fact that the source code for the project is available, and the existence of hundreds of websites that allow you to sign in with your Twitter/Facebook accounts a few people just stuck with the original confused message of fear, uncertainty, and doubt perhaps preventing people from helping this project out when it really needs the help.

 

If you're not sure of what you're saying then it's probably best not to say anything at all.

 

With that said I'd just like to thank Geekathome for a useful little tutorial that's helped me a great deal in my project.

When i log into twitter or facebook and pass my information, my CC number isnt linked to it like my PSN id is.

 

Furthermore, you say that you arent storing the information such as our username and password, but how do we know that.

 

will have me believe that it is impossible to extract this information from what we provide?

 

I say, if you want to help, thats great, use a resticted psn username, one that has NO access to purchases, as the person wisely suggested above.
