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 definitely agree that this would be a good idea. I like Min's suggestion of having one badge displayed and a numerical value of how many of those someone has. It'd be better visually, I think.

the table feature seems to have some really bizarre bugs when dealing with larger or copypasted stuff, maybe spending some time messing with it to see how to fix some of these or optimize the feature?

among the ones I faced just now were freezing and complete deformatting after refreshing the page

I think it'd be great to add epic games' exophase profile connection. And also a space to add our Switch friend code in our profile
A space to enter Switch friend code perhaps? @Jimmu
I've added the Nintendo Switch Friend Code field to profiles, as for the exophase profile connection I am not sure if there is a huge amount of users that would be using this? To be honest this is the first time I am hearing of exophase, do many users here use it?

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.

Both of the above I'll have to spend some time looking into and get back to you. Our Xenforo license hasn't been renewed in quite a while and we can't get the software up to date to easily troubleshoot issues. I'll have to try reaching out to Mases again and get it updated before I can tell if issues have been solved by later updates we don't have yet.

I'll also keep an eye on this conversation. Personally I haven't really seen it as an issue but if there is enough desire to change it we can use the settings to limit the number as you have said.

Anywhere you're not
So this isn't anything we'd be worried about for a while but I wanted to throw it out there now that we have a botw 2 release date. I know that a few people, myself not included, are planning to avoid the forums for a bit once the game comes out to avoid any spoilers. Would it be possible to waive or lessen the zd legend/champion post requirements for that month or the month following?

Sounds reasonable to me, I'm sure we can work something out closer to the time.

Can there be a badge for the Switch Friend Code so it displays below our medals? (look at the post above to see what I mean)
