Just giving this thread a poke to see if it's still alive. Any word on the "bigger modifications"?

@Captain_Chao5: Red is sort of right, but sort of not. (Which is usual. )

In terms of the "bigger modifications" I can't say anything about them just yet, but they're still in the works. It's all being done by Nlife, who control all three sites, rather than being up to me. So while there aren't any announcements just yet, the work continues.

As for Gamercards, I've been working on that myself and we've run into a Microsoft security issue or two with the data API. I'm going to put aside a bit of time this weekend to see what I can do. There's a chance that it's dead, frankly...but I might be able to find a way around the problem.

Suppose we could just cheat and do this at the end of each post... but it would be a bit of a pain...

@SuperKMx: If you have all our gamertag info can you not just use the gamercards that other sites create (eg TA) and slot in that tag info into the card URL like this?

Eg:

Obviously that would be on the understanding that we all used the same site to generate them and stuck to the same minimal format to keep things neat and tidy?

Is it not possible to 'tweak' the site setting to allow bbcode in the signature? Then we could add our own and save you guys hassle.

@Captain_Chao5: I'm guessing that will fall under the "it's controlled by Nintendo Life so no" catch-all

@stylon: That's exactly it. If it was up to me, I'd make the change. But I think changes like that would affect the other two sites as well as they're running on the same code.

Good news abound though, as I've had eyes on some of the overriding changes that are coming...
