I just added a new feature that allows you to add custom links to the Quick Links menu. These links will only show for you and can be anything you like (email, yahoo, other sites, whatever). I would advise keeping titles short though, as long titles will widen the menu.
You can access this by clicking on your UserCP (http://www.paw-talk.net/forums/usercp.php?
) and selecting Edit Quick Links. Give it a shot, let me know how you like it!
