OAuth is a token based auth system. The short of it is that instead of passing a username and password you are supposed to send the user to a webpage where they authenticate then authorize your app. After they authorize it sends you back a token you are to keep and use for all actions.

My best idea, which isn't too bas, is to throw an error if the token is invalid (or missing) that tells the end user to go to the page and create the token and put it in the password field.
