  • "Contact Information" in profile - Isn't it time ICQ took a long walk?

    Do you not think ICQ and AIM should be removed by default and perhaps added if people do actually still live in the 80's?

    It makes the forum software look old IMO.

    Not spoken on ICQ or Aim since the late 80's.

    Hotmail and Y! Messenger early 90's.

    Google Talk since the mid 00's

    We should have Phone Number, Fax, Email, Web Address, and the usual stuff people actually have as their contact info IMO.

    Anybody else agree?

    Email and Web Address are already part of the user's profile.

    Address can be added via Custom Profile Fields.

    However I do agree that additional IM styles should be available via the Contact Info system. Never used GoogleTalk but I am aware it gets moderate traffic. Maybe not as much as ICQ or AIM though.

      I agree.

      Twitter and facebook account are more useful and everyone has an Twitter or Facebook account.

        Anyone tries to contact me through Facebook or Twitter, they'll have a long wait.

          Personally, I don't either use facebook or twitter, I rarely login to them.

            Then you probably wouldn't personally fill in those values. It isn't like they are required.
