    I would like to request if three of my custom vB codes could be added to XP-Erience.org's Forums.

    The three codes are IM codes. They allow for people to put a link in their signature for you to click on which will add their screename to your buddy list.

    The codes I have are for AIM, ICQ, and Yahoo! Messenger. If you are interested in adding them, PM me and I will send them over.

    ICQ and Yahoo!, yes. AIM, no.

    Aim uses a different addressing scheme (aim:addbuddy?screenname=blah). It requires a special code.

    If you let me know the codes, I guess I could add them!
    A messenger one would be cool too, I guess.

    Yeah I know. AIM recently changed the coding when they added the AIM Personal Bar when 4.7 came out.

    Yep. It's just AOL's method of trying to make their software proprietary. MSN did that for a while with netmeeting. If you wanted to add a contact to netmeeting, the code was

    netmeeting:\\email@address.com

    Now, it's something like netmeeting::\email@something.com (or something like that). MSN Messenger doesn't even allow html linking! I think they should all just stick to http and keep it simple.
