I have to admit, it's been a few years since I looked at the Contact Methods list - and I had a good chuckle when I saw what's on there. At present, it's;

 

  • AIM
  • MSN
  • Website URL
  • ICQ
  • Yahoo
  • Jabber
  • Skype

Of these, AIM has been discontinued (2017), MSN has been discontinued (2014), ICQ, Yahoo and Jabber don't seem to be particularly prominent in this day and age, and finally Skype is semi-alive (although the Business component is being folded into Microsoft Teams).

 

With this in mind, it might be prudent to trim / replace some of these options with more current services? AIM and MSN could almost certainly be replaced by an option for Discord, and given the growing community of painting / hobbying streamers one could make the case for ICQ, Yahoo and Jabber to be replaced by the likes of Twitch or Youtube.

 

Food for thought. I understand that the staff are currently working away at a new version of the forum behind the scenes. \o

This will definitely happen when we update the software.

Maybe sooner.

What would members suggest as current contact methods to replace/expand the list (aside from Discord, Twitch, and YouTube)? Facebook and Instagram seem logical. What about Snapchat?
