    Would anyone else be interested in putting together a thread of AIM/YAHOO instant messenger screen names so people would at a glance be able to see who was online for realtime help?

    I know they are listed as part of profiles but sometimes when you really need to bounce an idea of somebody it is tough scrolling through threads to see who is online.... and who has AIM/YAHOO

    only negatives i could think of is that your AIM/YAHOO name would be visible on a public forum.... but then again it already is if you indicated that you have it (on your posts)



    any thoughts?

    Couldn't you just scroll down to the bottom of the main page to see who's online at any given time?

    ya know, people used to laugh at me for having a computer in the garage.( happened just the other day in fact.) it usually ends with "what?! you don't have a computer in Your garage? how do you look things up when you get stuck?"

    NorCalDoug,

    You could just scroll down, but you still wouldn't know who had aim or not....

    with the thread of all aim users, you would know everyone who was on the list had AIM/Yahoo and then all you would need to do is look for the little green light that says you are on-line....

    and furthermore... sometimes you just need to run an idea past someone right then instead of posting, and then waiting for responses, and then reposting more questions (or details you left out... like me....)

    I agree a live chat would be good for the site... but didn't want to create any extra work for woody.

    That would be the tits....I already used aim a bunch of times to get help or help people out....most of the cruiser names came from on ih8mud anyway.
