the Adium description on VT is still wrong...

From the description on VersionTracker: "It has been in active development for over a year; improved versions are released on a weekly basis." The part about active development is arguable since .50 was released in April 2004 (but Adium 2.0 was around way before that), but as we no longer ...

And make sure if you have Adium in your Dock, it's from after you dragged it into your apps folder; don't drag it directly from the disk image to the Dock.

The download won't work for me. It takes a while to get going, then proceeds at 3 KB/sec or so (I'm on broadband), and after a couple minutes, it thinks it's done and tries to decompress it (producing the Stuffit Expander error that was mentioned earlier) This happens in both Safari and Firefox, and...

Did you try Command-Shift-C (which brings up the Colors window)? That's standard for any Cocoa app for changing the color of the text in a text view.

They got it from iChat. It sounds cool at first, but due to people accidentally doing it so much, it turned out not to be that great.

When you double-click your buddy's name in the contact list, there will be popup menus at the top of the message window that allow you to choose from which and to which account to send the messages.

So is the contact list window there at all? If not, Cmd-slash is the key combo to show/hide the list; try that. If the window is there but empty, I can't help you, but others here certainly can.

Still, just doesn't seem fair to its users. I don't think that many people have nothing better to do with their time than call AOL and make up stories about their accounts having been banned. Also, I think this type of thing should be a special case because AOL supposedly banned his accounts. Like R...

I called AOL and they told me that "we do not support AIM since it's a free service." wtf... Seriously, wow, I've never heard of a company not supporting their free products. "You aren't paying us, so we don't care about you and don't give a shit what you think of our product." ...

The confusion there was because threebyseven said he was logging onto his Gmail account, but really it's his MSN account, which just happens to have his Gmail address as his MSN user ID, and isn't related to Gmail at all.

For File Transfer, open the Adium prefs, go to the File Transfer pane, and select the "Automatically accept files..." checkbox. Is this what you want? Note that you can do this only for file transfer; for things like Direct Connect invitations, you'll need the official client to set the pr...

Like I said, I don't think that will work. Using the Status menu affects only certain accounts, probably just the ones you have checked in the accounts pane. And if you check more of them, they start signing on by themselves or at startup or whatnot.

Just set up both screen names in Adium, and sign onto both of them. Then, go to Status menu --> [your old sn] --> Custom... or whatever away you want to set for that screen name. You can export and import buddy lists using the official AIM client (I assume you're using AIM accounts); look on the Fil...

No, I agree with MetalSnake here, eevyl, I think you're talking about two different things. He isn't saying that DC isn't working for him, he just wants it to automatically accept them instead of asking every time. In the AIM program, there are 4 choices about DC invitations: Ask, Block All, Allow o...

You're probably right, zaudragon. Since Adium used to be AIM-only, anyone who has used it for more than a couple of years (dunno what percentage of the user base that is) has to be an AIM user (or at least they were at some point). So I'd say AIM is still the most popular.

I don't know about that. I would think that users could accept the contact list stopping at the Dock's height (even if their Dock isn't fully extended), especially if the alternative is the Dock overlapping the bottom of a window, which should never happen IMO. And don't most people have their Dock ...

Well, when I first heard about the feature, I was excited, because I thought that my "default" font (the one I always use) could be Comic Sans 12 blue, and if I pasted in some formatted text or my font otherwise got messed up, I could just hit enter to get it back to my usual font. Instead...
