AIM sucking

Recommended Posts

Is it just me or is AIM sucking particularly badly lately?

Both the Android app and web interface are not showing new messages and/or are out of sync for me nearly every time I log on.

Maybe we should officially move everything to Dischord?

For others reading the thread:

Here are the instructions for installing Discord and joining the NHL'94 server: http://forum.nhl94.com/index.php/topic/17771-new-instant-messaging-voice-chat-setup-discord/

There are already #classic-genesis and #classic-snes chat rooms set up (equivalent of the the AIM groups). Additionally, if you want to voice chat while playing your games, 3 additional general-purpose voice chat rooms are available.

Atomic is already on the server.

I am fine using Discord, or whatever...

FWIW AIM does not seem any worse than normal -- for me -- lately.

But, I noticed you didn't mention the AIM Desktop Client. This is what I usually use. So maybe give that a shot? (I do dfind the Android app to be the buggiest way to use AIM...)

AIM has been fine on web, app and desktop client for me ever since I stopped automatic log in (about a year now).

People outside the US might experience problems. The website aim.com might not let you in and says it's geoblocked, but there is a way to use the direct link aim.com/popup/ to avoid that, but for many people who knows to do that, especially new ones. I couldn't use the android app either from Finland or Poland for the very same reasons. PC application works fine and that weird popup link directly. Change is hard for people! :P

I'm leaving discord on for most of the time I've got my computer on (most of the time), but will check out AIM especifically when I'm looking for games.

++ I also experienced that messages were not updating problem at one point, but don't recall the fix nor was it the desktop app or popup link. It's good now.
