Is it broken or could it be better? Post any suggestions for the forum here :)

Profile Categories

Postby Mauricette » July 4th, 2017, 7:28 pm

Hey, Mauricette here.

My suggestion is about the list of information to fill out under Profile in your user control panel. The options listed are ones ICQ, AOL, MSN, Yahoo + Jabber IDs, and since those usually go unfilled, is there anyway to puts one's gaming profile information in there instead? Like my Steam and Origin username? And then also for the more popular blogging sites like LiveJournal, Blogger and Simblr?

Thanks for your time! <3

I took a look at the coding for the profile mod, and I think it might be possible to replace the names so that instead of MSN, Jabber, AIM, etc. they'd be listed as Steam, Origin, etc? I have 0 background in coding though, so I'm not actually sure if changing the name would work.

The profile mod is here, if anybody who actually knows how to code wants to take a look! I agree having more up-to-date fields to fill out would be nice, but we'd need a profile mod that has those options listed in order to do it.

Hi, sorry this took so long for me to get to. I've just added profile options to share your Steam and Origin IDs. You can fill them in in your UCP and they show up on your mini profile & main profile page! See mine :)

When it comes to the old outdated profile entries - it's mostly bc our forum software isn't up-to-date, but we can't update it until an updated version of the Medals mod is released, or we'd lose medals. Hopefully this is okay though :drinks:
