Oh well, at least I have AIM 🙂July 22, 2006 at 11:32 pm #148591endersMember
7:30 pm EST YM and yahoo mail are still down. For me at least yahoo mail has been a bit wierd for a good month now.July 22, 2006 at 11:44 pm #148624Eagle_KiwiMember
I woke up about an hour ago, to find 4 or 5 emails from various friends, asking if *I* knew anything.
So, a quick visit here to BBB, a reply to each with a link to this thread, and now at least everyone knows what's going on. 🙂
Yes, I must admit, I DO have friends who don't use BigBlueBall :crying: – but I'm slowly educating them all. 😉
Thanks Vanessa, you rock ! 😎July 22, 2006 at 11:46 pm #148675cmoneileen43Member
It would be just lovely if Yahoo could post an announcement on their site when they do this. I appreciate the maintenance, but it sure would save lots of worry and unnecessary downloading……no communication… hmmm, sounds like my job. BTW I just registered and came to this site looking for info about YIM, so Hello to All.July 22, 2006 at 11:52 pm #148677missmofie7402Member

Welcome to BBB (BigBlueBall). Glad you took your time to register and yes it's bad that Yahoo! doesn't bother to put up an announcement in their site, but which is why it's good to have sites like this that let everyone know what the heck is going on.
The confusion i knew many people would get is what caused me to start this thread, to hopefully avoid many people from worrying that they had messed up their computer or the problem was on their part not Yahoo!'s. So let's keep waiting, since the server is still down 🙁
Edit: missmofie7402: welcome to BBB, as well. 😛July 23, 2006 at 12:10 am #148635GolfSawgrassMember
LOL! To avoid the spectre of having been accused of “lurking” here, I'll go ahead and add my two cents worth here. Yahoo! Messenger has been down for me since at least around 5 PM ET today. I don't know precisely the time as that's when I returned home from running errands and noticed it was down.
I'm sure it's a technical problem with Yahoo! servers. My only doubt is the degree of effort Yahoo! is committing to solving a problem affecting a product that represents absolutely no income to the company. This comes at a time when Yahoo! is busy snuggling up with Microsoft in their brand new bed. I'm sure Yahoo! is investing most of their time and effort in cleaning all the carpets and polishing all the furniture so that when Microsoft makes the inevitable bid for them (name a company Microsoft has gotten this cozy with and they haven't made an offer to buy them… LOL!), the bid will be as attractive as possible.
I hate to be a pessimist about the Yahoo! dedication to resolving this issue, but facts are facts and history is a valuable teacher… especially when it comes to partnerships with Microsoft.
I guess this comment ensures me of getting the “lurker” title removed now… LOL!July 23, 2006 at 12:28 am #148678derekleeinkcMember
7:30 PM here in Middle America and we're still down. I can intermittently get to the http://messenger.yahoo.com website, but often get a Timed Out response.
My Yahoo Mail Beta is working fine right now. When I visit the Yahoo Homepage (The new one) and sign in and mouse over the “Messenger” tab it says I have 5 friends online but I don't believe it is correct.July 23, 2006 at 12:30 am #148691j_wadeMember
Im in Australia and this is getting rediciolus ( cant spell ) Yahoo for me has been down for about 6 and a half hours, can u imagine how much pressure the server will be under when like 5+ Million ppl wanna log back on?July 23, 2006 at 12:43 am #148694jetdriver2Member
I just joined BBB Forums to find why I could not sign in to YM. After spending all afternoon and uninstalling and re-installing YM twice, I know now that the problem is with the YM server. I depend on YM to keep me in touch with my fiance in China. I didn't realize how much I count on YM until I didn't have it!July 23, 2006 at 12:47 am #148695bloop6152000Member

If you go back to the first page of this thread, you'll notice that the Yahoo! server is down, so people are currently unable to log on. Please be patient and just keep hoping that Yahoo! will fix them soon!July 23, 2006 at 12:54 am #148664Kathy in E. TNMember
