Archive Yahoo Messenger Hall of Flame 6
Tuesday, 18 November 2003
With the birth of Yahoo Messenger 5,0,0,1015 beta it is no surprise that
the error messages started to come in the door.. thats what betas are for
Maybe they just fell asleep ;-)
Here is one for your Hall of Flame..I just got it
tonight. This is a new one for me, maybe was something I said..lol
Take care, keep them coming
And you think you've got problems!!!!
"Hiya,i know you get alot of error messages submitted, but i thought
this one was cute. I get so many illegal operations during the course of a
short session, that when one closes, and i open the next, the icon in the
systray doesn't disappear. I assure you i only have one messager installed,
but at times, i can have as many as 5 yahoo messanger icons on the tray showing
as online. lol They stay till i move the mouse over them, then they disappear...
The pic i'm sending shows the error message and the resulting systray...
i uninstalled my messanger following yahoo's advice for fixing my crash
problem, and when downloading it again, i got some odd screen shots. lol
It started when the original download failed after 100% and it asked me if
i wanted to cancel, or retry, so i chose retry...and this is what i got!
and it went on....
and on...all the way to 200%, but this is the last pic i got.
Hmm.. too much of a good thing ;-)
"hi i got this error messege after sending some MP3's to my friend..
was kinda funny after sending files it showed me that messege."
Locked down.. Locked Out :-\
"this one has me stuffed
i left my messenger idoling
and i came back and found this ....
this is one of the many reasons i hate yahoo"
take care ,
This is what happens when you talk to yourself ;-)!
"I had this error popup when pressing Ignore in a IM window when I
was talking to my self"
"Here is an Error I got tonight downloading messenger 5 from my browser.
I name this: 131% committed (To Yahell)"

Double your friends instantly...
"Got this one while trying to send someone am IM, looks like
it took his s/n and copied my list making it a new group."
The visible invisble...
"Have no clue how it happened.
When I logged in it told me I was invisible, though obviously my screen
shows up in the yahoo window."
"This one showed up when I tried to
IM somebody, and I didn't see it already posted in the Hall. Hope this helps
in some way. L8rs"
(it sure does... the hall of flame is not only used for poking fun at
Yahoo errors but it also helps people identify an error message they're suffering
from... people email/post "I have the error that you show in the hall
of flame page 2, 3rd from the bottom" etc etc... makes life a lot easier
a "creative" error message... certainly spices it up ;-)
"I checked your beautiful Yahoo! Error messages section
and it seems you do not have this one listed yet:
do not ask me HOW to solve it and what it means.
I requested more information to Yahoo! HelpDesk but NO reply until then
and I cannot connect to Yahoo! Messanger.
Everything else is working fine - I just can't access Messenger!"
