YM ka-Chat, Offline or Just Invisible? Now You Know!

Here’s a cool tip to find out if you’re chat mate is off-line or just in invisible mode (or worst, enabled the ‘Stealth mode’ so you wouldn’t bother him). :)

There’s actually 4 ways of finding that out. Let’s enumerate and explain/test the best one, shall we?

  • Doodle IMvironment
  • Voice Chat
  • Conference Invitation
  • Stealth Setting Check

Doodle Invironment

Select the “Doodle IMvironment”, go look for it in the usual IMviroment part of YM (come on you know where it is).

“If the user is offline, the Doodle area will show “waiting for your friend to load Doodle” continuously”.. its like a whiteboard with writings on it.

But if the user is online (i.e. invisible) after a few seconds you’ll get a blank screen and ready to “Doodle”

Voice Chat

Try inviting the person who ‘appears offline’. If you get an error like “Internal Error. Cannot obtain voice token to start voice chat” or something similar, the user user is indeed off line.

But if there’s no error and it continues to work (you know, with the “talk” and “hands free” enabled and not grayed out) the user is hiding from you! :)

Conference Invitation

This is the same thing as the “Voice Chat” method. You’ll get an error if he’s offline and if he isn’t, you’ll be able to ad him in the conference.

Stealth Setting Check

This is my favorite… So easy to use. All you have to do is enter his YM ID and done. He’s either online or offline.

Here’s a few services (last time I checked, they have errors, except he last one)
