I added some explanatory text reminding everyone what the Also On feature is about (it's not for your blog, it's for other sites similar to MeFi with user pages) and I nicked a few that have already been implemented or weren't links to other social site user pages.

I don't want to override anything that's already been nixed and put it back on the list, but OKCupid doesn't require a login to see profile pages. --Jacquilynne 13:04, 18 June 2010 (UTC)


Diaspora also seems not to require a login. The link to hermitosis's profile page works for me, and I have no account on the service. -MoTLD 18:52, 25 May 2013 (UTC)


The issue with Diaspora is not whether a login is required. It's about having multiple domain names. You can have a Diaspora account but be on a completely unique domain. We can't support that. Folks can link to their Diaspora profile in their "About Me" section of their profile, but we can't add it to the list of social networks. -pb 22:04, 29 May 2013

Thanks for explaining the Diaspora situation. As for HamCall, well, I understand if maybe QRZ got added a long time ago when things were different, but nowadays both require login to show much info. For sake of disclosure, I have a very personal bias in favor of HamCall: I wrote version 2.0 from scratch, back in the day. Because of my bias, perhaps input from the other 5 hams (niche indeed!) linked to QRZ would be appropriate, if we can only link to one. I'll try to bring 'em up on the radio... ;) -MoTLD 20:34, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
