    So I haven't been able to use iChat for sometime.
    I've been using Adium instead and it really bugs me because it doesn't have a webcam thing but iChat does- therefore I really want it to get working again.

    Here's my problem-
    Whenever I go on iChat it signs me in, but it shows as everyone being offline.
    I checked the arrows on the sides of the groups that usually minimizes the groups but i checked and it showed that they were all maximized but every single screen name was in the offline group.
    Then once I click on another application, it freaks out. It constantly signs in and out, in and out, until it tells me that I've signed in too much and I need to wait a few minutes.
    Uhm, any suggestions on what I should do?

    re-add the ichat account. sometimes the login server gets screwed up, and also in the preferences of the account, make sure SSL is checked. usually, deleting and adding the account will let you start fresh.
