Is there a way to jump from the social interface of CSW to the talk forum for an individual game? I don't want to log in twice, but I can't see a way around.

For example how to jump from

http://social.consimworld.com/group/boardgamegeeks

to

http://talk.consimworld.com/WebX?50@184.1RE1a1NMYxU.12@.ee6f...

I think that their social and forums use different login databases and as a result a separate. Although since you were able to find the specific game you were looking for in their forum implies very strongly that you CSW search skills eclipse mine by light years.

I don't go directly, what I do is click on any of the "Recent CSW News Stories" links, way down on the right of the page, and a new tab is opened in that post, then I click FORUM (third option from the top on the right menu)to go to the Forum start page.

As I said, not directly, but i log just once, for the social forum.

Thanks Tony! That last recommendation works well. It still is a little clunky a transition, but it needs just one login and I can move between the facets of CSW.

Unfortunately I can be logged in to social but have only guest access to the talk units. Half the job done.

I did sign up on Social, and needed to sign up again on Talk. This is the minor irritation that the two don't seem to link.

P'rhaps there is no link between the two databases. Tis no matter.

It's interesting that there are different logins. I didn't know - I've been visiting the forums daily for years, but have never even looked at social.
