Making the oAuth page obvious for *new* users


#1

Hi guys,

Is there any way to make the phrase “Sign Up” more obvious on the oAuth landing page? ( “/oauth/authenticate” )

We recently ran a round of usability testing for twidaq.com and found that most folk got really confused/lost when faced with the Twitter Sign-In page… the “Sign Up” link is (apparently) really difficult to find. Since quite a high proportion of the folk who come to our site are new to Twitter it’s quite a pain.

Alternatively is it alright for us to thread folk to the URL: /signup?context=oauth&oauth_token={token} during the oauth dance?..

Any thoughts’d be appreciated!

Cheers,
Jim
