    You can now more to your profile. Includes:

    3DS friend code, Facebook URL, Nintendo Network ID, PlayStation, steam network, Twitter username, Wii Number, YouTube username, and Xbox Live Gamertag.

    Edit your profile here: http://www.videogameinfo.net/forums/profile/editprofile/

    Let me know if there's any other fields you want to be able to add that I didn't include here.

    It would be nice to have them appear in your post where all the IM info is

    Good idea. I found a old and unsupported add on at vbulletin.org that allows me to do that. Unfortunately it is only for PlayStation 3, Gamertag, and Wii codes. I might be able to modify it to add other stuff like Steam, Facebook, twitter, 3DS, etc. I heard Nintendo was planning on replacing their 3DS friend code with Nintendo Network ID or something.

    Seems to use a php code to fetch the Xbox profile. live.xbox.com/member/$userinfo[gf_xbox].card . This page is a bit outdated unfortunately, though that is probably an easy fix. I should just replace the URL with something else like http://www.xboxlivescore.com/profile/$userinfo[gf_xbox] . I don't know offhand what the best site to use is. This add on doesn't seem to have a URL for PSN, I might be able to add one but that could be a bit trickier.

    Would this work?

    The image loads up just fine for your profile, but I'm getting an error message when I try it with other people like myself. Do you have to sign up for the site or something in order for it to work? In anycase, that image is way too large to put in a user profile. I might be able to link to the image of the gamercard, or the whole profile, but not both.

    Oh yeah.. I forgot you need to enable it for your account
    The way you have it set up now looks good though

    I've made some modifications to the the outdated add on to include steam. Because Facebook, twitter, etc. aren't gaming related I didn't add those, I might be able to fit them in later but it'd probably need to be in a separate area. Unfortunately vBulletin doesn't provide a way to easily modify the contact information area so I'd need to do more code edits whenever I get the chance.

    Good news, I managed to add all of the networks I wanted on. Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Steam, etc. it's all up there and functional.

    This is actually a good idea, I'm glad you integrated this.
