I have noticed, that when a user creates an account using his google or fb account (these two I have tested) he will be redirected back to askbot where he will need to put a screen name and a valid email (that is never validated actually).
I also know that other sites that use openid and oauth mechanism, ask from users to give permission to share also their email address so the site can send them notifications.
By this way a) the user does not need to type his email again and b) the site (askbot in our case) knows that has a valid email that can send notifications.
Do you believe that following the same approach in askbot will add any value?
