I see there is a list in the profile for ICQ, Yahoo and AIM... i think aim is in there.

I use Skype for all of my chatting needs. Could this be added? I would not mind listing my Skype contact. I don't use anything else listed. If not, i may just add it someplace else manually. maybe.

Added a highly amateurish button for Skype to the button bar at the bottom of each of your posts. You'll see it in your (JF's) posts.

What URL should that link to? I pointed it to the generic Skype web site. Can it get more interesting? Since we know users' Skype IDs, can we open a Skype connect window or something like that?

a href="skype:-skype-name-?chat">Start chat

The text above needs the >< at the start and > at the end.

So it should look like this for me:
a href="skype:trmofnor?chat">trmofnor

at least that is what i can find. I have not been able to make it work.

crap, this forum keeps changing the html text even when it is not complete.
here is a link instead
Skype HTML
Look for the Skype IM. I doubt i would answer a random Skype call.
Also, the link is said to only work with people who have skype. I cannot find a way to link a profile. Not that i looked hard..

Created the URL.

Acts like it wants to work. Opens Skype, prompts for login. Difficult for me to test, though: satellite Internet, painful lag. On Monday I'll try from a proper Internet connection.

Is there something fun we can do with my Skype name in the profile page? Since you can email with a click, perhaps move the button to the profile as well?

just a thought.

Agreed. It's odd that there's a row of contact buttons below each post, but it's incomplete in the profile. Will get to that tonight.
