AIM Web Ideas

Have an idea to improve AIM? We want to hear it.

  1. Type an idea in the search box below and click Search.
  2. If you see your idea in the list, click Vote to the left of it.
  3. If you do not see an idea like yours, click the Post idea button.

Please suggest only one idea at a time.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Allow for us to have multiple accounts signed in at one time.

    This is similar to having AIM linked but I know that many people use AIM for role-playing purposes and thus have many different usernames that they use. I enjoy the new AIM format, however not being able to have as many screen names as I want signed in at a time limits me and I have to result to using other services such as Adium, Pidgin, and Meebo.

    • Changeable background

      It would be awesome to be able to customize the background.

      • Add a like button and place to comment on status updates

        There is no place to post a comment on a update. I know that you can reply in chat but you should be able to post the comment so everyone can see it. The like button should also be added so everyone can see who likes what status instead of just replying to the person who wrote the status in chat.

          Hey Anthony, thanks for this thoughtful feedback. We’ve been talking a lot about what to do with the ‘updates’ part of AIM – and liking/commenting is at the top of the list of potential things to add. We’ll keep you posted if we make any changes. Thanks again.

        • include smileys

          it's always good to see a smiley, it expresses more feelings, emoticons probably is a more correct term

                  Hey everyone, I wanted to share an update with how we’re offering some of Lifestream’s functionality in the new AIM.

                  Right now you can check your follower/like/comment activity from Twitter, Instagram and other social networks, and you can share your AIM updates with Twitter or Facebook (and reply to updates from people you follow). We know this isn’t everything but we wanted to offer the pieces that would fit in best with the new AIM.

                  We’re curious to hear which specific missing parts you’re most interested in. Please add your vote to the issues that are already listed or add a new request. Thanks!

                • Be able to upload photos to aim updates

                    • Offer a narrow mode

                      the new version takes up too much screen real estate.

                        • Bring back the running man

                          this orange alien makes no sense... the yellow running man is your bread and butter... it IS your identity. Bring him back! At least, let us choose alien or man!!

                              • clear chat history for group chats, i don't know if we can do that yet, but i cant do it.

                                allow us to have off record group chats and in addition allow us to clear the chat history.

                                  • Accept/Deny button

                                    Add an "add friend" option. I know that there is a search buddies thing, but when you add your buddy, then it automatically makes you guys buddies. Like on facebook, you should be able to accept or deny the request.

                                        I miss changing my font and backgrounds. I would want "themes" or colours for the software to be back! I love the new AIM, but it would be better to at least add different colors. :)
