Also, users can choose and select their own avatars for their profile pages. ICQ users are identified and distinguished from one another by UIN, or User Identification Numbers, distributed in sequential order.
The UIN was invented by Mirabilis, as the user name assigned to each user upon registration.
As a response to UIN theft or sale of attractive UINs, ICQ started to store email addresses previously associated with a UIN.Unlike other instant messaging software or web applications, on ICQ the only permanent user info is the UIN, although it is possible to search for other users using their associated e-mail address or any other detail they have made public by updating it in their account's public profile.In addition the user can change all of his or her personal information, including screen name and e-mail address, without having to re-register.Issued UINs started at '10,000' (5 digits) and every user receives a UIN when first registering with ICQ.As of ICQ6 users are also able to log in using the specific e-mail address they associated with their UIN during the initial registration process.Eliav Moshe replaced Gilliam in 2009 and became ICQ's managing director.While ICQ was displaced by AOL Instant Messenger, Google Talk, and other competitors in the U. and many other countries over the 2000s, it remained the most popular instant messaging network in Russian-speaking countries, and an important part of online culture.The technology's success encouraged AOL to acquire Mirabilis on June 8, 1998, for 7 million up front and 0 million in additional payments over three years based on performance levels.who also assumed the responsibility for all of AOL's messaging business in 2007, ICQ resumed its growth; it was not only a highly profitable company, but one of AOL's most successful businesses.So tweak according to your own individual circumstances.I would also recommend that you uncheck the automatically adjust…..settings options.
