IM information?
« on: July 31, 2017, 03:33:44 pm »
I like IMs. I've been role-playing for over a decade, and almost every friendship I've struck up has been via IM. It's also where I usually discuss games and OOC details.

This makes a forum where I can't advertise my IM information problematic, and since Yahoo/AIM/ICQ are basically dead (and I can't post my username for AIM anyway because E cuts it off) I'm wondering if there's any chance that E will ever fix this?

i.e., include room in profiles for IM services that work / people use, or maybe create a Discord server for E?

I know there are places I can post this information on the forum, but most people don't expect to find them there and skim things like O&Os so it's really not the same. And adding another step (having to PM people and enquire about this info) in what is already a complicated and failure-prone process is really not desirable.

It's not an ideal solution, but could I link this information in my signature? As in create a link button that links to a separate post in my O&Os, or something, so only members can follow it?

Unapproved members can't see signatures, so yes, you can put your IM info in your signature if you want to.

That's something. Thanks. I'll create a new link button.

I completely rewrote this system for Elkarte, so there is a much better version coming. >_>

This sounds like good news, although I'm not sure what Elkarte is.

Elkarte is the next incarnation of the forum software (we're currently on a tweaked version of SMF as I recall.)

Thanks for clarifying.
