just my 2 cents, under "messaging" in profiles i think it'd be nice to add an IRC field, i stopped using most all messengers once i discovered all the awesome people on IRC (especially #dataflow on freenode, which is the puredata chan). maybe two fields, "nick" and "server/s".

going one step further maybe add a java chat link or something pointing to #dataflow on freenode? although when i've mentioned this on other (nonrelated) forums they said that would probably cut down on the overall number of posts.
