Must the memory of the dream of Ur fade from the minds of mefites?

On December 15, pb retired a number of Social Apps that had zero users or no longer existed from profile pages- including the one for Glitch, the weird cult non-game that eventually became a glorified IRC Client unicorn. However, all of the old user pages for the game's players continue to live on at glitch.com. Couldn't we keep the memory of our participation in this weird little thing that once existed around for posterity? (Or maybe let people know when social apps are going to be cleared from their profiles?)

WICKR, and (maybe) other new instant messaging tools

WICKR is an instant messaging client for secure, OTR communication that at this point has a fairly large user base; I think we should add an option for WICKR handles to the IM section of the profile.
I’m posting this to MetaTalk because, while we have a wiki page for new social sites, we don’t have one for new IM tools. That’s probably okay, but might be worth revisiting at some point. As a proxy, if people have tools that they like they could post them below.

A well-read pony

In this thread, there was discussion of creating a Goodreads widget, but nothing ever came of it. Is it still possible? [more inside]

Archive of Our Own profile widget?

It has lately come to my attention that there are several people here who are interested in creating and consuming fanworks. How would the mods - and the community at large - feel about adding an Archive of Our Own widget to the Social Apps part of the profile? They seem to exist at least to some extent because they are available on Dreamwidth (see my profile).

A little iOS love in the user profile

Seeing the thread on letterpress, I thought to seek out other MeFites and also let them know how to find me in GameCenter. We have a thread here about this, but I would like to request a pony in the form of adding GameCenter to the Social Apps section of the user profile. Please?

Could we add Glitch to the profile social apps? There's already a MetaFilter group there and there are a lot of social aspects to the game. The more people you know in the game, the more fun it is. Thanks!

LIbraryThing Widget

The LibraryThing widget is pulling random books from your LibraryThing account. Since Twitter and Last.fm and many of the others seem to default to most recent, it seems like the LibraryThing widget should pull your most recent books too, just to be consistent.

Social Apps Changes

The Social Apps on MetaFilter profile pages are a way for you to show where you're contributing at social networks on the Web. We have a list of 98 sites you can list including Flickr, Twitter, and Last.fm. (Full list here.) We're making a couple changes to Social Apps today including opening up the rules for what services are included and changing the way we include content from those services on profile pages.

Also on PRX

Searched high and low, and couldn't find it on MeTa or the Wiki: Is there a list of all PRX user profiles linked to MeFi profiles, like there is for recent tweets by MeFites or lists for some of the other social apps?

Ravelry redux

Ravelry (http://www.ravelry.com) has been out of closed beta for a while. It also gets a fair amount of love in any fiber-arts-related post on the green or grey. Can we add it to the list of social networks in user profiles? [more inside]

WoW in social apps?

Can we add World Of Warcraft to the list of social apps on the preferences page? I stay in touch with a lot more people through WoW than I do through IM, Facebook, etc. I think just adding it to the dropdown would be adequate. People add their name and server in whatever format they wanted. "Ragma(Windrunner)" or something.
