Hey everybody, I want to make you all aware of a new, cool feature of the boards - jabber/xmpp notifications.

So, if you don't know - XMPP (aka Jabber) is a chat protocol. And neskimoforums.com has it now (powered by my own server).

If you add a jabber id to your profile, people can directly send you messages. You can also receive notifications (PMs, watched topics).

You can add the jabber address in the User Control Panel, under Edit Profile. Under Board Preferences, you can setup Jabber notifications (you can choose email, jabber, or both).

If you don't have a Jabber/XMPP account, I'll gladly make you one at any of the domains I own:

gettingwetforyou.com
sandinmyvagina.com
forgreatjustice.org

This would include email as well.

You can also sign up for free jabber accounts at jabber.org, Duck Duck Go, and a few other places.

The main benefit of all this would be to setup a chat client on your phone and receive notifications (and maybe chat with eachother!!).

EDIT: One more thing - Google used to support federated XMPP, but that's going away. So, using your gmail as your jabber id is a no-go, unfortunately. :(

Unfortunately, no. I don't think I can even communicate from my xmpp server to folks on gchat/google/gmail/hangouts at all anymore.
