Exclamation AIM/YIM/ICQ Features

Now, at the bottom of a member's post, you will be able to see whether or not they are online using AOL Instant Messenger (AIM), Yahoo Instant Messenger (YIM), or ICQ.

An icon of the applicable IM service will appear. Clicking on this icon will allow you to locate and send them a message using this program (if you have it installed).

This will only function if you put your screen names in your member profiles...so go ahead and put those in there if you want to use this feature. Enjoy!

NOTE: Apparently, the AIM icon is ALWAYS visible. It gives a shortcut to try and IM a member, put them on your buddy list, or invite them to chat. The YAHOO icon tells us whether or not you are on of off. The ICQ icons are also always visible.

But the ICQ icons also tell you whether the user is online or offline. If it's green, the user is online, if it's red, the user is offline, and if it's grey, the user is electing to hide their status, I believe.

You'll often see my ICQ status is hidden, because I'm getting loads of unsolicited messages from WebCam girls, and it's beginning to annoy me!
