Important Do you want to still have the MSN contact field in your profile?

Post by Shadow on Wed Dec 11, 2013 10:53 am

Do you want to still have the MSN contact field in your profile?
Dear members,

We need to have your point of view about the MSN contact field in user profiles.

Indeed Windows Live Messenger has disappeared and this contact field has become somewhat obsolete. You can always chat with your MSN contacts via Skype. This is why we need your advice because it depends on the use you made​​.
We must not forget that Forumotion already has a Skype contact field.

Where is the MSN contact field?


Admin Panel> Users & groups > Profiles> Contact fields


Forumotion will decide to remove this field depending on your vote.

Thanks for your time

Regards

I don't need it.

In fact, maybe that whole Contacts field could be redone. Why not allow users to select which ones to fill out (from an Image/Text list). Currently there are nine listed by default. Maybe reduce it to four. Admin as usual chooses to add more fields if they like. Just a thought.

In my opinion the filed is no longer useful as MSN doesn't operate any more and to a large extent is now obsolete to things like Skype.

MSN is dead, esp as Skype is owned by Microsoft now, better to give admins the choice of what to put in the contacts, esp as there is the likes of Skype, oovoo, ect, and why do we need the print thing in there, as I'd never herd of it before, but I had herd of the others,

There should be a vote for what contacts we would like in that area,

Any chance of a vote for the "humor" profile field? It's kinda weird that it has to be shown everywhere, even though it's probably the most pointless of all fields?

I believe it is not needed if MSN is becoming obsolete.

Vote No. I didn't use it for many years. Personally, I think FM should delete rarely-use other contact fields too : Meebo (a part of Google), Google Talk (rewrite code to Hangouts) ,IRC and ICQ.

I agree with sarkzkalie01 we should get rid of all rarely used or closed contact services including all he said above and whatever AIM Address is.

AIM is AOL's chat thing, I used it once or twice about 10 years ago, its probably less used than MSN, well they even call MSN windows live messenger anyway.

It would be great if we had a list of options to choose from (drop down selection), also I don's see a use for things like zodiac, that Chinese one. that are floating around the admin panel.

The most used things now are Skype, OOVOO, Meebo, IRC and Jabber, but most of these now are being taken over in popularity by Skype,

Hi,

This isn't to do with that, its to do with the removal of the MSN filed in the user profile across all Forumotion''s forums.

Maybe it could be removed as a default one, but leave it as a choice to create a customized contact field.

English please?

And for me this is no... I never use any of the contact fields personally and end up "removing" (by that I mean making them invisible to members) them all anyway.
