Hi

As Google+ is no longer running could we perhaps replace the field for this on the profile with something liker Fediverse[/b please. That way those of us not on Facebook (or other centralised social media) can perhaps have a field to paste our fediverse profile address please.

Maybe also have fields for IRC and maybe peertube, the irc channel still seems quite active so being able to link users here to users on irc could be useful when helping people.

Thanks
Paul

You get "website (freeform URL)" "Faceborg (useless to me since Dec 2013)" "G+ (useless)" "Skype" "YouTube" why do you need anything else? Use the Website box for non-standard things.

Having been Locutus of Faceborg for six years hasn't done any harm, breaking away from the Faceborg collective gives you your life back.

Hi

Thanks for this, will do that. Or may simply point to my own website as that points to my friendica anyway. I guess I can paste in my peertube to the youtube slot. :D

Some of those profile boxes mangle the names you enter into them.

Well neither the facebook or youtube box liked my friendica profile or peertube account address. I think it the box clearly expects a specific url format.

This is precisely why the "signature" part exists.
You can place extra links or info there.
