I have a list of accounts you should be able to link to your speedrun.com profile.
-Xbox Live Profile
-Scratch Profile
-Roblox Account
-Nintendo Network ID
Let me know what you think.

Roblox account? What?

And besides, there's already so many social medias that you can link your src profile to, as shown below my country (I have every single one possible including the ones that aren't obtainable normally). I really don't think it needs more than this amount.

Well if you had all the linked websites, including the ones I suggested you’d have a square number of profiles making a perfect square of websites rather than a weird shape.

I don’t think that they’re going to update the site just to have a square number of profile options.

If a user doesn't fill out literally all of their socials (which is highly unlikely), they'd still have their socials in a weird shape.

Furthermore, adding those socials would only form a perfect square in the event the hidden socials are filled too, which includes a duplicate for spotify, so it's really an exercise in futility at this point.

PS: That being said, I wouldn't mind seeing those socials being added, since I figure they'd be relatively common for a large amount of users and they are actually related to gaming unlike some of the current ones.

  HiHi

@MrMonshMrMonsh If you look at my profile you can also see double Patreon, Google Podcasts and iTunes.

Having the option to link your Roblox account would be pretty weird if it's the only game that you can link your SRC profile to. Why not also have games like Minecraft that you can link your SRC profile to in that case?

The thing with Roblox in particular is that it's not a singular game, but rather a framework that people use to build their games upon, so it's extensive to a lot of games, like a network.

  HiHi

But so is Minecraft.
Because of Multiplayer, you can either speedrun the actual game, but you can also speedrun the minigames provided by the servers that Minecraft has (e.g. Hypixel, Cubecraft etc.), so it's also a framework like Roblox.

What if you play on Bedrock Edition? You don’t necessarily have an account on Bedrock Edition, rather the you use your Xbox One account for Minecraft.

The main issue is that many of the contacts you suggested have no way of, you know, actually contacting someone. The purpose of contacts is to find a social media to talk to the person if need be, not to just have them there. I'm not 100% familiar with all of them but I know for a fact that it's impossible to talk to someone via their Nintendo ID.

@IvoryIvory can you message people on roblox? (you are the rolbox expert)

From what I remember you can message people on roblox but the messaging system is very weirdly censored, no clue how much of a conversation you could have with someone on there

Yeah it is heavily censored if you are under 13

You can message people on roblox if you're friends with them on the platform. And yes, the messaging system on roblox is pretty much useless with all the censoring of words.

There are already a lot of linkable accounts that can’t be messaged, for example, you can’t message someone’s Duolingo or Battle.net account. Also, you used to be able to message someone’s Nintendo Network ID using Miiverse until evil Nintendo shut it down.

You can message someone’s Xbox Live profile too.

It’s to remind you to do your daily lesson so you don’t invoke the wrath of Duo.

Interesting to see them called "contacts", since you can't contact people on most of them I always understood them as an advertising area for your social media accounts.
