    This might be a rather pointless question, but is there any way I can find out who has me on their AIM buddy lists? Any site or special program? I'd be interested to see... Of course, it might be invading people's privacy, but hey, it's my screen name.

    Just thought I'd ask here, since I couldn't find out via a google search.

    Thanks.

    Nope, there is no program out there for that. AIM uploades some of the things but doesn't allow you to know about if you are on _____ buddly list like ICQ does.

    Your not on mine, but if you want to be I'll add you. :p

    actually - there is a trick. If you have the person on your buddy
    list and they have an away message up, then message them,
    and if the away message pops up then you are on their list, and
    if no away message pops up then you aren't. This might just
    apply to PC's but I doubt that since AIM is multi-platform, and
    an internet based app.

    I wonder if there's some way to hack the system... I think that it'd be nice to know who has you on their buddy lists. Then you could find out whose stalking you :cool:

    I just wanted to know because there's some people at school that I suspect may have an interest in me... :eek: :D

    scem0, being a nurse STD has a definite meaning to me, our meaning is not the same correct! :p

    To be honest I'm not sure what AIM involves, so it seems that you are not on my list!

    aim always does the away message thing no matter what, but in iChat it doesn't...even if you are away and you're on their buddy list and they're on your buddy list.

    i think what hes referring to, is that if your not on their buddy list, a dialogue will popup, asking them if they want to add you, instead of just sending their away message to you. i dont know if this would even work right and/or be a viable solution.

    Not true, I have people on my buddy list and they don't have me and their away message pops up...

    I might find a person in a chat that is away and I'll message the person and their away message comes up...

    Bah. No way to know really, unless you hack the server find the lists, an easier way is
    a) to ask him/her
    b) hack their computer, personal computer users don't know anything about how to protect themselves.

    I haven't heard of any ways to tell whos buddy list I am on, either. But, it would be kind of interesting to see. :D

    btw, you aren't on my buddy list.

    He's NOT on my buddy list. :D :p

    Of course I'm not keeping one, so it's not too bad.

    I think what scem0 was talking about only works when whoever you are IMing has "Notify Me When New Buddy IMs Me" - what's it called? Knock-Knock? Where a message pops up when someone not on your list IMs you. If they have that setting on then the Away Message will not be sent, because on their computer a little "scem0 has just IMed you" message will appear and they'd have the option of clicking "ignore user". If they have Knock-Knock off, though, the Away Message will be sent.

    To answer your question, there is something at that IMchaos.com site where you can put a link in your profile that says "Click Me!" or like "Nakey Photos" or whatever, and then it lists everyone who clicks on it. Won't show you EVERYONE on your list but is a good way to see who's reading your profile (and who likes Nakey Photos).

    Yeah, I was referring to what Davis said. If you MESSAGE them
    while their away you will get their 'autoresponse' if you are on
    their buddy list. You won't get it if you aren't.

    It should look something like that. But if you aren't on their
    buddy list it would just look like this:

    This might just be a PC thing, but I doubt it.

    You've lost me! My definition of STD is sexually transmitted diseases. Are you calling my name funny? :confused:

    Well, you're not on my buddy list but I gave your screen name to Aladdin and they should be stalking you to upgrade Stuffit to v7.0.3 now. :D

    no :D! There is someone from MR who messages me on AIM from
    time to time, and the first letters of his name are S, T, and D. So
    I call him STD. ;)

    I think there might be a way actually

    I was at the Adium forums, and the author said something along the lines of if you sign on for the first time in iChat and your buddy's icon loads without you IMing them, than you are on their buddylist. I haven't tested it, but an easy way would be make a new user and sign on your existed account with the new user. (iChat cache could be lurking anywhere)

    Hi,

    About the Buddy List, i have 316 (what Fire says) buddies.
    I don't how i passed through.

    I think I just found a tip (a bit boring) to get
    over 270 which is my limit.

    BTW, iChat have its own website with forums :

    iCM

    Bye.
