Description

We often direct new potential contributors to make.wordpress.org, but there is no way for them to create a WordPress.org user account. As this is a prerequisite to contributing and the make blogs are often given as a destination to get started, we should make it easier for people to create an account.

Possible ideas for a fix: Next to Login, display a link to register

They have to register at https://wordpress.org/support/register.php. You can add a link to there from anywhere, more or less. So where should such a link be added?

I think all the make blogs have the westi-added bit that shows a Log In link in upper left if not logged in. Let's just amend that to be Log In or Register.

I agree with jennmylo here. A simple mockup:

That's actually already in there, but it's geared for WordPress registration and not the bbPress one. I'll make an add-on for it.
