    Hi guys,

    Has anybody experienced a problem when they join/host conference chats?

    I just tried to conference with my buddies tonight but the thing is they can't see my replies in the conference chatroom. I was using adium at first...tried YM 3.0, but I thought it's buggy so I didn't really keep trying...then used YM 2.5.3 (the stable release).

    For YM 2.5.3 it worked at the first few minutes. I even have duplicate accounts in the chatroom (two twin accounts) and seemed to have echoes of my replies. then the echoes stopped and found a little later that they can't see my replies again.

    is this firewall related on my mac or I did something on my YM account to have this problem? I rarely use conference chats (but I do need them when I chat with friends - though occassional) but I need to figure this out.

    the last time I tried this out but didn't work for me was when I have my mac used adium then switched to YM 3.0 beta last March. at YM 3.0 it worked ok...but tonight it didn't :(

    by the way, I can't find anything in the net too so I tried here. or I'm just too sleepy to think of the right keywords.

    I'm experiencing problems also with my YM, every time I type and enter a message it goes up to the very first message. Also when I receive messages, it goes up again to the very first message. Before it was working well, but after I installed the latest version this thing has been happening. Can anyone help me?

    hi redangel. I think that's an issue with YM 3.0 beta and Safari 3.x beta. :) Let me look for that link...but I think you have to go back to the stable release safari.
