    ok I have a problem. I use this program all day everyday. But the last week I noticed that none of my buddies were signed on. Tonight I looked into and it wasn't that nobody was on it's almost like I'm not signed in. But I turn on AIM normally and it starts and runs as if nothing is wrong. But I do not show up as signed on on anybody elses list. I then tried to send a message to a buddy I know is on(sitting next to me) and it says they're offline. I also tried to sign in with my account on other computers and still get nothing. I then had other people use their names on my computer and they work fine:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:

    Does anybody know what could be up. is there something wrong with my account or what? anybody had this problem. I really don't want to make a new screen name as I've had the same one for ever and people I no longer see get in touch with me through it.

    This is driving me nuts.....anybody???

    You sure you're not in "invisible mode"? At the top of your buddy list, under that obnoxious ad, it'll have a little eye next to "mtnman210's buddy list" or whatever your screenname is. Make sure the eye's open. Other than that, I've got no idea. :dunno:

    OK I'm an IDIOT. the dumb program has been screwed up for a week now and i've spent the whole time yelling at it as well as uninstalling and reinstalling it many times. well it turns out if you have the "block everybody" tab checked nobody can contact you and you can't contact anybody else.

    We use it all day at work and it's been off and on this week. Can't reach some stations.We have a pretty sharp computer guy and he doesnt know whats up with it. Maybe it's AOL. Or AWOL or something. Glad I could be so helpful.
