1. Keep it clean.
2. Keep the discussion civil.
3. Name calling is not allowed.

Politics and religion are two topics that tend to degenerate into a violation of one of the three simple rules above.

The mods and the site admin reserve the right to "lock" or "delete" any discussion that in our opinion, is "heading in the wrong direction."

MOST of all, be respectful of your fellow Cubber's opinions. Don't expect to change someones belief system from a simple forum on the internet.

Question about the AIM feature

Postby jostev » Fri Dec 02, 2005 7:32 pm

I was just wondering why when I click on somebody's AIM button, it says that this page cannot be displayed? Just wondering, I am logged in, but maybe they have to be logged in too?
Thanks, Johnny

Jostev - do you have an AIM account? If not, you will get the error message.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!

Yes, I have an account, but a GAIM account, I chat with my friends who have AIM, and it works fine, I don't know, oh well
Thanks for the help Scotty and Bigdog
Could somebody try and see if it works with my button?

Just did:

aim:goim?screenname=farmall+kid+48&message=Hello+Are+you+there?
is the response

You will have to recheck your account information in your personal settings in your profile.

I used to get that problem. No longer use AIM. I funnel everything into my MSN account or hopefully everyone I chat with, has MSN and an ID... simplify if much better.

Besides, AIM is a unit of AOL and I will not go there -- ever.. I won't even use Netscape anymore....
