Remove dead messenger options from profile

Postby Major Cooke » Thu Oct 10, 2019 11:05 am

I know there are far bigger things to be worried about. I don't even care if action is actually taken or not. I figured it's so trivial that it probably didn't even occur to anyone that most messenger fields people can still fill out have actually ceased existence:
  • Windows/MSN Messenger (became Skype)
  • AOL Instant Messenger (AIM)
  • Yahoo Messenger
  • ICQ

Jabber is the only one I'm having difficulty getting confirmation, but a registration site that says it's temporarily disabled way back in 2015 looks like a damn good indicator it too has died.

Just thought I'd point these out.

As far as I know, there is no way to disable these fields via the Admin Control Panel. We would need to modify the board software manually.

Jabber is an open protocol, which anyone can create servers for. I know its still used by Google/GTalk. How many people still care to use it, though, is anyone's guess.
