Unless I'm having another hard refresh issue, it looks to me like social media icons on profiles aren't showing up. When I looked at my profile, I didn't see the new listings by icon. I clicked "edit profile" and saw that the twitter address was there; then I saved the profile, and the "follow me online" line appeared with icons for my twitter and delicious accounts. I looked at one other profile -- Brian Foote's -- and didn't see icons there.

They're generated on save. I didn't write a script to sweep through existing members, but I can do it if you think it matters.

Well, there are two issues:

1. The twitter link disappears if there is no save, so that the twitter link I used to have on my profile doesn't show up until I edit/resave

2. Many people may not edit/resave

If possible, I do think we should sweep through

Actually, it turns out I did have the script already written and in the plugin, I had just forgotten about it. I've run it and it appears to have picked up on user profiles now. Marking resolved.
