Time for my bi-monthly bumping of this thread. Same case as the last time I bumped this thread, I understand that this is a huge bump. But your most recent responses regarding this were in this thread, so there’s no point in making a new thread because of that.
Likewise as before, just asking if some form of progress has been made on this suggestion for the forums. With this suggestion having been around since the new forums launched 14 months ago, it’s time for me to ask once again about this. I’d like to know if there is something that is preventing this suggestion from becoming a reality here, and some form of progress report would be very much appreciated.
If I could potentially throw an idea to help this along, I would propose making it so that if someone wants to do this, they need to have all their appropriate game profiles public.
(i.e. I would need to make my PC Profile public as well to be able to do this, since my PS4’s profile is already public while my PC Profile is private)
As for another possible idea of having these main profiles option in, there could also be the attempt of setting a “priority value” (so to speak) to each of a battletag’s OW profiles that are linked. For example, have it so that PC’s starting priority value is 2, whereas the other profiles that are linked to a battletag start at 1. However, if someone uses the set as main profile option, then that profile’s priority value becomes 2 and the previous main profile’s priority value becomes 1.
(i.e. In my case, my PS4 profile would have a starting priority value of 1, whereas my PC profile would have a starting priority value of 2. But if I use ‘Set as Main Profile’ on my PS4 profile while logged in, then the priority value of my PS4 profile would become 2, and PC’s priority value would become 1. This is here to help explain further what I mean by this idea. As for a potential comparison, when I worked as a staff member on DN while it was still available, numeric values were set to each user’s profile to determine their rank & privileges on the site. 0 was regular user and was the default value of every account that was created. 1 was Admin, 2 was Senior Admin, 3 was Head Admin, and 4 was Owner. Higher numbers of course had higher priority in terms of appearance and privileges.)
