    Is there something wrong with AIM? I signed on this morning, and I don't have anybody on my buddy lists at all. When I went to add some, they still didn't show up on my list. I understand that your buddy lists are on AOLs servers, so is there something wrong with them or is it just me?
     
  2. It happens every once in a while. It's just AIM.

    Mine works fine right now, but I'm probably on a different server, being on the opposite coast... This has happened to me before. I just wait it out, and then log on in about 30 mins. It's usually fine by then.
     
  4. I've only had that problem on macs....
     
  5. That happened to me once. Turns out I logged in on AIM at an internet cafe and left it on when I left! Some guy went through and deleted my buddy list, but other than that nothing else malicious happened. Which is why I have a new sn now.

    4 hours later and still the same. I think something may be wrong on my end. Ick.
     
  8. Sounds like a big oops to me.

    Although I am just as likely to do something just like that.
