NOTE: THIS FEATURE IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE

Today I've made a few nice little changes to the forum so that you can add social network icons to your profile. Please see the image below for an example of how they look.

All you need to do is update your profile (http://www.mechanicaldesignforum.com/forum/ucp.php) with your social network details and the relevant icons will appear in your profile and in the mini-profile that appears next to posts (pictured above).

To date I've added LinkedIn, Twitter and Skype. Facebook will come soon if I can get the mod to work!.

The really nice thing about the Skype icon is that it actually shows your Skype status!

Finally, I've added an "online" icon that appears when you're signed into the forum.

I hope you like the changes. Please visit your user control panel (http://www.mechanicaldesignforum.com/forum/ucp.php) and update your social network info. I'd appreciate if you'd let me have feedback/comments/problems. Please leave them below.
