Steam Link Connection,

edit:

with other ideas presented, this thread is more for having a Steam link more than anything else.

thread title changed as well.

 

disclaimer: don't shoot me.

also, no threads in the recent few pages about this, so a new one.

 

personally, all i want in a Signature is a single line of text, and one URL allowed.

so i can link to my Steam Profile.

 

honestly, that's not a lot, and takes up practically no space on the page.

 

 

i totally understand people having 15 line signatures with 4 URL's and 5 pictures is obnoxious. i don't want that either.

but one line of text and a URL?

Warframe is on Steam, so i imagine i'm not the only one that would like to have a link to their Steam profile.

alternatively, i guess we could have something to be set in our profile to link under our avatar, but a signature sounds simpler IMO.

hell, disable all formatting in the signature even, but just allow plain text and a URL. it's all anyone should need for anything anyways.

if it's that big a deal, Signatures could even collapse, but one line of text isn't that big anyways.

 

something that discrete doesn't seem like a big issue to me.

If the only purpose was to link to steam profiles, it would probably be easier for them to add a box or something where you put in your steam profile name/code and have it hot-linked to your steam profile. Rather than putting limitations on the signature area and then making sure they're still appropriate. 

 

While I do agree that linking to steam profile could be good specially if you're looking for companions, I feel that it might break the 'neat-ness' of the forum depending on how it'd be executed. If it wwas information that only showed up on your forum profile that would hardly matter though.

i did mention an alternative. which wouldn't be very intrusive anyways, one line that is a link to said persons' Steam profile.(and it would be far less convenient if i needed to go to someones' profile to see said link).

that being said, maybe the quick info that comes up when you hover on a users' name could contain said link, if a single A Href is THAT big of an issue.

 

it could be as simple as the word 'Steam' with a link tied to it. 

 

 

 

certainly, having no signatures at all does make a cleaner appearance, but one line isn't a big deal in my mind. it's not the only option, but it's probably the easiest one.

 

it just makes sense for the Forums to have a bit of connection to Steam since Warframe was added to it a ways back. when Warframe was only available separately from Steam, it was a different story. but since it is, it seems like something we should already have.

I'd personally prefer something like this:

No extra page height created, same functionality with the capability of expansion that's just as easy as a signature. DE could easily add extra entries as their distribution channels change, as well.

works for me. 

 

edit:

whatever it takes to have a Steam link, in whatever form, as long as it's functional but also fits on the Forum well(and is easily accessible).

also, OP updated & thread title changed.
