    Is anyone else having trouble with Yahoo Instant Messenger. When I woke up this morning it wouldn't connect on my laptop or phone. It's saying there was a "sign-in" problem on the phone, and just doesn't connect on the laptop.

    Not sure if it's my personal account, or if this is a much larger problem.

    thanks.

    Looks like I got it to work on my phone after resetting my password. Curious...

    Maybe my account got hacked.

    I really like AIM...yim is good for direct contact but I enjoy having a chat room. Groupme isn't bad but it kills my phone lol.

    Nothing is perfect and obviously everyone has their preferences.

    My biggest issue with GroupMe is that it's primarily phone based, rather than computer based. You can use it through a browser, but there is no stand alone program to leave running.

    I know a lot of people like the "chatroom" type features of GroupMe and AIM Blast, but I am mixed on that feature. While at times it would be nice to be able to communicate in a chatroom type setting with league mates, I know that it can drive people crazy as well. There can be a fine line between having a useful communication tool, and being inundated with alerts from inconsequential chit chat.

    It is definitely something we have an open mind about and we will continue to consider alternatives, but as of now we will be sticking with YIM as the mandatory messaging tool for the league.

    Didn't mean for this to turn into a YIM/AIM/GroupMe/IMO/etc debate. I like YIM, in fact I like it a lot more than anything else out there because it's simple and there is no BS with it. At least not on my account (until today) but that is all sorted out now.

    I hate YIM blasts. If you're in it, you get every message and I can't tell you how annoying it is to be at work and having your phone going off all day. Even if you have it off at work, when you turn it on you will be bombarded with tons of messages. It's never ending.

    That said, I figured out my problem. Something happened with my password that was no longer linking up. Not sure what, but it's all sorted out now.

    I've never had an issue with YIM. I'm in too many Facebook messengers w friends to be able to keep up with a league wide chat board like Group me. Lol.
