Topic: IM fields in another way

Is it possible to write all of the instant messagers in only one field in database?
They can be separated by commas and names of IMs can be placed in translation.
In my country nobody use "popular messagers" like yahoo, aim, msn, icq.
We have our own IM which is almost standard in communication via internet and it isn't popular in any other country.
I think, that this situation could happen in other countries and moving IMs to translation is good idea.

They're there already
Just replace everywhere it says "Yahoo" or "AIM" with the name of your instant messenger in the language file


Re: IM fields in another way

I know and I did it, but who needs 5 IMs?

Re: IM fields in another way

I have ICQ and AIM (silly, I know, to run both when ICQ #s work with AIM and AIM nicknames work with ICQ), I know people who use that and Jabber (usually through Google Talk) and MSN
But most people don't need all of them at once: they just need some of them. But take a group of people, probably at least one person will have used each one smile
