    Default Forum mod possibility? (Games played)

    Would it be feasible to get / write a mod for the forum so people can select on their profile what games they play, and add the ability to search for other ppl who play the game?

    Could be useful, especially for those playing the not-so-popular games to find ppl to team up with.

    Possibly showing small icons for the games in the bit on the left of the post with the user info?

    it's not a bad idea, but i think those little tweaks are for when they've ironed out the major problems.

    you get lost if you want to do to much at the same time

    It's not bad a suggestion. Perhaps Devile could install an add-on similar to what we had on IPB, at least for Knight Online (What server you play, race, ect...).

    I actually like the idea. You can see by the icons what game a use plays instead of bothering to browse his profile and look for his Sozial Groups ^^

    Devile-
    Maybe give it a little while to see how the social groups go - if they work well then no extra work needed for you.

    Maybe if it shows in the left section "member of" and then lists your social groups in the gaming category?
    This would encourage people to use the groups too. Although you might then need to restrict group creation to certain member levels to avoid getting too many of them.
