How about we get rid of

ICQ Number:
AIM Screen Name:
Yahoo ID:
MSN ID:

I doubt these hardly ever get used, if they get used at all. Most people instant message via facebook, or skype, or google chat. Why not replace these dinosaurs with something that people might make use of. If not, at least add new options to the old ones. Another possibility is to allow each user to change it to whatever the hell he/she wants so it will reflect the shit they use.

FACEBOOK URL:
SKYPE USERNAME:
TWITTER USERNAME:
BLOG URL:
WHATEVER THE HELL ELSE THE KIDS ARE DOING THESE DAYS THAT I DON'T KNOW ABOUT:

You know, something like that.

RE: Contact Options (Profile)
good idea in general but I am not sure if it would be used. If anyone is just remotely like I am, I don't give my contact credentials like that. If I wanna be in touch, I contact the person via pm and exchange these infos (facebook/skype/etc)

What the hell is ICQ?

IF this was not a serious question: Hahaha Laughat Thumbsup

IF this is a serious question: It used to be a very popular messenger a few years ago.

It's also a great way of helping to ascertain if a newbie is a human or spambot. Smile

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

I used ICQ in the 90's until AOL bought mirabilis. After that I kept the last non-AOL version for a few years before moving on =p It was an acceptable messenger until it got bought out by a big company, then it just got dumbed down to convince people to purchase an AOL acount.

I'm not a non believer, I believe in the possibility of anything. I just don't let the actuality of something be determined by a 3rd party.

So I get the feeling that the consensus is new idea is = or > "current" setup? Sounds like a winner to me. I would be particularly happy if we were allowed to just name the fields ourselves, that is as individuals, then this problem would never exist again. It would however create a new "problem" cause I know half the members will think they are clever by putting something like

FUCK BUDDY: Your Mom!

Eh, whatever, I'm okay with that.

This. It's one of the easiest ways to spot bots.

True, spambots do seem to be great at putting ICQ numbers in their info.
