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:

      • Make your video bigger, because it's hard to see the other side.... it's really narrow and stuff

        Since the chat is on one side and the video on the other, perhaps you could control the size of the boxes... :)

        • Hire an interface designer to fix your broken product

          Stop patting yourselves on the back and stop to realize you've destroyed your own brand. AIM was the king. Poor decisions have led it down a path of garbage. We don't want to chat in bubbles. We don't want messages about keeping conversations "off the record". We don't want you to re-think with the buddy list system we've organized to our satisfaction already. All you needed to do was offer a great chat experience. An advancement is not ditching everything your user base is comfortable with to experiment with making a completely different application. An advancement would have been to…

              • you should let us decorate/choose the backround

                we should be able to either choose from a mutiple of backgrounds or be able to draw our own- the account pictures are great but many things are now letting you choose your own background you should too

                • Persistant font styles.

                  Please! It's annoying to have to re do it every time I open aim or chat with someone else! Also more options wouldn't hurt ;]

                    • Add a little profile to each screen name you can fill out

                      In the old aim, I remember you being able to have a little mini profile with your name and information. I have not been on aim in years. I like the new look of it however, I am having a hard time remembering who's who. I would like to see their first and last name at least, instead of just the funky screen names.

                          • Make a ringing sound when an unread message comes in.

                            Some people(like me!) do not see when their inbox has an unread message. It takes a long time to get a reply so there can be a ringing sound that is made to alert the person.

                            • Please! For the love of God! Go back to the old aim!

                              Please! For the love of God! ALL my friends used to use AIM. Now I have a bunch of buddies on my buddy list of ppl who haven't logged on since somewhere between Myspace started going out and FB came into fashion! I have been using AIM since around 1997 when I didnt even have a comp at home and I went to the library after school just to start a chat with ppl on AIM. I even used AIM to talk to my now husband back in 2007 so he wouldn't wake his parents up talking on the phone…

                                        • You need to bring back grouping options ... i.e., Buddies, Family, Work, etc. It's pertinent especially for those who have MANY AIM friends.

                                          You need to bring back grouping options ... i.e., Buddies, Family, Work, etc. It's pertinent especially for those who have MANY AIM friends. That way they are categorized correctly and easier to find. Please, I do NOT like AIM with this new 7.5 update and am considering never using AIM again after being an AIM user since 1998. Also the way the chat window is set u being shared with your Contacts is not working out as well. Too much going on and not enough privacy.
