I don't know if anyone has already suggested this (searching came up blank). but I was wondering if you have thought about personal member icons with links to IRC, instant messaging, Email, etc, underneath their posts. You could make it voluntary like the signature info, so a member could decide to 1 or 2 or all icons or nothing. Alot of people nowadays have a secondary account they use solely on the net, so spamming wouldn't be so much of an issue, lol! I really think it would bring the aD community closer together. I can't explain it any better, so here's a link to a forum where I've seen it done. http://www.gathering.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=1 Tell me what you think, even if it's the most moronically stupid idea you've ever heard of!!
