I've tried linking my twitter to my account here for a while now, and it has never worked. I always assumed I was doing something wrong, but it looks like this is a known issue for Xenforo. Trying to link a Discord also doesn't work in a similar fashion, none of the icons a member has links to anything.

They're just for you to put what other names you have in these social medias. I don't think they were ever intended to be a hyperlink to your page on those.

Some of the other icons do link to the page assiciated with it, the one for Twitch for example does work. These are definitely icons that are supposed to link to something, but some are just broken from what I've read. It seems people have found ways to solve the integration issues, at least on previous versions of Xenforo.
 
with the gkas having just been distributed, this has been back on my mind and i would like everyone else's opinion on this before any changes are made, cuz for some people im sure they do like seeing all their badges under their name in posts

but as the years go by, lots of members like myself, alit, sms, and so forth, have accumulated a crapload of them, and they're kind of unsightly and (not to mention ridiculously tall) after a certain point. as it turns out, the medal plugin does have a setting where you can limit how many of these badges are featured in the postbit (that is, the info beside your post; they will still all be fully viewable on your profile).

its simply a cosmetic change, but i'd first like what people think of this. particularly valued would be input from people who also have more than 10 badges as it'll be mostly affecting them. and second, if you guys are in favor of it, what the max number of badges shown in a post should be? gonna throw out the generic suggestion of 10 badges as my initial suggestion.

thanks

I personally find the comically large amount of keys kinda funny and not bothersome at all as the message's length and signature often overlength it anyway

if it did need to be addressed, though, I think categorizing it with numbers based on their category regardless of the amount could help save some space. So even if the person has like only two keys, maybe giving the option to exhibit it as (2x 1662252883255.png) under their avatar.
 
all the setting allows is setting a numerical value, although i agree your proposal would simplify things a lot. i also should probably add that these are settings per theme so hypothetically, different themes could have different cutoffs to cleanly have them cut off for a full row (as how many items that form a row are different per theme), if that is more preferred

edit: if this doesnt bother anyone else, i will leave it as is, btw. i just wanted to bring it up cuz gkas and stuff

If you can choose which ones are displayed within that numerical value, then you could just put one of each of any multiple medals perhaps. Like if someone has won the same category multiple times just display one of the keys.
