Along the lines of this, I think it would be good if people could have some indication on their profile for whether they are open for collaborations or will accept requests for art or music etc. I don't think it would need to be too extensive, just enough that it could help developers identify people that they can talk to outside of it itchio in regards to development. Something to help devs get the collaborative ball rolling.
