    Why is it that when I am signed offline there is an invisible (not really invisible but very very very transparent) Adium thingy (I don't know what it is) where my contact list used to be? I constantly click it by accident and I want to know if there is a way to have it go away when I am not signed online? Thanks.

    Any chance we can get a screenshot of what you are talking about? Cause I don't know what you are talking about.

    I found this to occur when you have the window style set to "windowless boarder". I'm not sure why this is, I can't think of a compelling reason or purpose for this implementation. I actually prefer that style but I set it to "group bubbles" because of the issue you describe.

    When you have a window with a normal top bar (not a borderless one), the contact list persists as a window whether or not you are online -- it's just empty, obviously, if you are all offline. That's a general principle in Adium's implementation of the contact list, and I guess it basically just carries over to the borderless version and leaves this behind. So it *is* your contact list -- which is empty. I think you should be able to click on it and move it around and so forth, just like you can with your non-empty contact list....

    I guess it's a minor nuisance. But heh, if I were the Adium guys, I wouldn't put it on the top of my priority list. :p

    If you want, go over to their board and submit a ticket about it.

    How much time do you spend with Adium running but logged out? Why not just quit Adium and start it when you want to use IM? I know it's not an actual solution to your issue, but when you're logged out of all of your accounts, Adium's not doing much for you....

    I don't kinow why I don't quit Adium. I just like having it open for whatever reason. Oh well, no solution I guess.

    i get it. thats your buddy list, but because you're not logged on it doesn't list everyone. It just has that. If you want to have it open but not logged on you should probably select in the adium prefs. that you want to hide your buddy list. that shoud do it. i think
