Listing of AI AOL Messenger names?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
This may exist and I just don't know where to find it, but is there a way that we could call up a list of everyone's AIM names so I could quickly go through and add who I'd like to my iChat?

This ability might be good for people who want others' MSN names, e-mail addresses, etc. and not have to go through each person's profile one by one.

I don't really find it necessary though because usually you will find a post or a series of posts from some person making you realize you want to talk to that person then you can simply click there profile link.

I mean really I never had the urge to go through and add AI members to my buddy list in bulk.

you could add people to your "ai" buddy list and then go from there... would be a BIT easier... but you still have to load each profile individually...

I think the only way to load data across users is by registration date, name, and post count... maybe you could take a look at the member link at the top of the page and see if you could shoehorn an AIM command or something...

I bet it is possible if you tried hard enough... you just need the name of the entry for AIM screen names...

check in your profile for that or ask brad.

brad addressed this about a month ago and a thread was started with iChat handles.
brad said it would have to be voluntary, he didn't feel comfortble publishing a list if memory serves, i'll find the thread after dinner and a bulls victory.

We get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more...
