We should look at how other major services are implementing login – what options do they allow? What are limitations and opportunities?

Specificially, let's look at sites on a similar scale and with similar purview (like codeacademy, etc)
I have a pile of screenshots I'll drop in here after I add comments. For now, this diagram aims to give a quick view of the patterns that often appear in these systems.

No longer depends on: 1011460
There are some small notes in pink on the screenshots. Top level summary above. I reviewed desktop and mobile for: code academy, code school, codepen, js fiddle, kahn academy, and a few other sites.

Here's a diagram that summarizes many of the primary user flows. http://xmatthewx.github.io/webmaker-login/

This is great mattheww. I also love the slide deck with all of the other sites flows.

Notes and screenshots of login/signup from other sites.http://xmatthewx.github.io/webmaker-login/survey/

Matthew, this survey and login flow is excellent. This should inform the prototype in really useful ways. Here's some feedback, but feel free to resolve this bug!

* admittedly, i like that sign in / sign up have equal weight on codecademy, that one isn't favoured over the other.
* this is nice: when they select a user name, under username field (codepen) list address: codepen.io/username so they know how to find their profile.
* like clean on boarding on code school
* like that code school takes you to the profile info. could have obvious action to "skip this step"
* Some of the email confimations w/ clear links are nice. we should refer to these when writing copy for the emails.
* like the easy 1-2-3 graphic on Doodle. However that infers we have a clear way we want people to use webmaker -- not true right now. Unless we chose something like, 'make something, 
see Scenarios written in bug 1009810
* Like how you showed the account info options on the Doodle screens once user is logged in. Can we see this on the prototype?
* Sad that Persona was most like Duolingo!
* Do like how simple IFFT is.
* The parents/teachers thing was interesting on Khan, but not something we need to consider right now.

This would make an excellent blog post at some point.
