Just a formatting nitpick: "text:Rails.configuration.site_name.downcase" should be "text: Rails.configuration.site_name.downcase"

I'm curious about the thought process behind this, right now if a first time user is coming in through an anonymous project, such as pathomap, then they hit "login" they are immediately hit with a google sign in page which may be very confusing. Perhaps, for logged-out users, 'log-in" should say "log-in/sign-up"?

But in any case, it may be better for them to fumble around and go to the Safe page and read "oh, you login with a google account" and that will make more sense, as opposed to being stuck in this isolated webpage and the login page looks like a phishing page asking them to enter their google credentials.
