Hair Cut

Acceptability question...

As part of pocketlj (my LJclient), I want to be able to do the following:

  1. Store user preferences, based on and identifiable by the users LJ username. i.e. username=thelovebug, background=black, etc
  2. Provide a web-based system which allows users to change their client preferences. This would involve the use of the LJprotocol to authenticate the user, the allow the user to see/change the information stored in point 1.
On the condition that I do not store the users password in any way, shape or form...

... is this acceptable?

If not, can you throw any suggestions to me?

Point 1. should be ok, as it would only be an extension of the existing client. Point 2. is the issue here, making use of the LJprotocol to authenticate the user. This will be heavily identified as a part of the PocketLJ client, and if there is a notice on the front screen to inform users that their passwords will not be stored, I'm hoping this will be ok.

I welcome comments.... when LJ starts accepting them again :o)
