AIM/Windows Live/Gmail/Etc.

As per a little discussion, I figured that I would begin a thread in which we could post our information for various chatting programs that are out there. I would find it quite cool to get a bunch of people on here all in one room and chat it up. We could also schedule and set up times in this thread, or another, depending on how busy it could get.

Heh...I was (literally) literally just creating an AIM address for these purposes--I'm trying to keep this place (where I'm pretty open) from my professional life (which requires serious discretion, as a job-seeker).

That, is totally understandable. I actually need to create a more 'adult' professional email address for such fun things as job-seeking. lol

...of posting this all in a thread. I can add such things to profiles, I suppose. I think I could even toggle it so it could be seen only by other members...

might be better.
can you edit out the part of mine that lists my new AIM?

judisheshok's picture

Postulant

Oh, but that's just more work for you to contend with :). If you would prefer it that way, I'm totally cool for that.

I would be totally in line with posting this information only for members (or even better members past the first point level).

Now, that's a totally Bitchin' Idea! Further usage of the point system! Yay! :pirate:

You will now see entry slots for AIM, Yahoo, Gmail and Twitter. Those fields, gathered under Social Networks, are visible only to members.

This is such an awesome idea.

I added a gmail and yahoo to my page, if anybody wants to add me :P.

Mei, you rock for setting this up so quickly :D. And, y'know, in general.

Great idea! I love chatting with TheBoy and would love to chat with others! Smile See my profile.

Note: I'm always on, but not always at my computer. Or I am but I'm working.

I haven't been able to see any information when looking at a profile . . . am I just not in the right spot?

fairnymph's picture

Embodiment

It was tricky for me to find it, when I went to account though there are tabs and one says 'social networks'.

Shade's picture

Supplicant

I found it in mine and put in the info, but I can't see it on other profiles. I looked for yours, and didn't find anything. Is there another link on just the straight profile for other people? :?

fairnymph's picture

So I'm guessing it's a glitch.

MeiLin's picture

The sections on profile pages go:

User Points
Personal Information
Newsletters (of which there are none yet)
Social networks
History
Badges

If you are a petitioner or above, you should see the Social networks section on any profile page.

ETA: I had a permission set incorrectly. It should be okay now.

I don't see a Social networks heading on her profile, but everything else that should be there is.

I think I've fixed it.

Added. I may or may not be at the computer, so sorry in advance for slow responses.

I'm almost always logged in, but sometimes not actually at the computer. Let me know who you are so I don't get freaked out Smile

Aw, man. This would've been nice... back when I was in college, and lived in front of my computer and on AIM. Not so true any more!

Still, thanks for making the options available to us, MeiLin Smile

We'll see how much I'm on. I'm working on switching platforms for some things, so computer things are iffy right now. Also, random strangers never IM me, so I'll probably know it's someone from here if you do. Smile

Ditto all the "I might not be around" comments Smile

I've added mine, and while I'm almost always signed on, I'm seldom in front of the computer. If you drop me a message I'll get back to you eventually though.

I have all three, since my friends can't decide to all use a common IM client. Now that I have a job I'll be on a lot less. Same stuff about seldom being in front of computer... except I'm on my computer quite a bit.

Why is it that I can be on three different IMs but they are never included?

ICQ (the original), MSN, and Yahoo...

MeiLin's picture

Most High

and if you'd like I can include fields for MSN and ICQ. And dude, IRC is the original.

NorthwoodsMan's picture

Embodiment

I never tried IRC, always thought it was the chat room prototype. Didn't know it was an IM...

Gudy's picture

Embodiment

... the original chat room, it also has a one-on-one mode, so can be considered IM as well.

Also, there is an IRC to IM gateway, which not only blurs the distinction but kinda completely blows it out of the water. Smile

judisheshok's picture

Postulant

I'm pretty sure that yahoo and msn/windows live can all talk with eachother. At least, I have friend with yahoo IM addies and they can talk to me just fine on my msn/hotmail/windows/whatever Smile

TheBoy's picture

Is there any way to use the profiles to cull a crosslisting of usernames (for this site) with usernames (for a specific chat client)? Perhaps similarly restricted-access as that portion of folks' profiles?

MeiLin's picture

Most High

I'm slow today...

TheBoy's picture

Embodiment

Angel incorporating the subject of your post, "that's what she said."
(b) I was wondering if there's some way for me, an AIM user, to extract a list of all the other folks listing AIM on their profile, with their AIM username attached to their ID for this site.

MeiLin's picture

Most High

I thought that might be what you meant. Yeah, I might be able to rig that.
