Contact information in one's profile
« on: December 21, 2010, 01:27 PM »
Is it possible to add Skype to the profile page? It's the only IM I tend to use...

If you're doing that, you may as well add a field for Jabber and another for GTalk.  I'm just sayin'...   :P

Yes, but it's a different service.

Don't forget to add Steam, XFire, Impulse, etc. while you're at it! :P

clearly just a box where people can list various contact info seems more sensible :)

slightly OT, the ability to embed steam:// links would be nice..

e.g.:
steam://friends/joinchat/103582791430253502 <-- takes you to DoCo chat-room
steam://install/630/                       <-- install Alien Swarm

mouser, it could be a page where one enters the info for all their accounts, and instead of displaying it on profiles how you do now in a big long list, use just a row of icons like at the bottom of my profile.

Attached is a big list of profile urls for various sites, and their icons (was for a project I never finished). I included a better explanation of how to format it on both edit profile and the displayed profile pages.

im thinking we might just have a separate text box where users can put all their random contact info.
