Question about Yahoo Messenger

Yahoo Messenger " add request pending" issue. Bug?

I have 2 Yahoo messenger ID's so they are like "friends" on each other's list. There was no problem until I accidentally deleted one. I deleted the other and started again; I ahd one screen name invite the other, approve and visa versa, a process I had done initially.

One screen name appears again as a buddy and is visible.
The other appears as invisible and add request pending. I tried rolling back to an earlier version of Messenger but that didn't work.

I believe there is a system glitch as i see other people writing about the "request pending" issue. The system doesn't recognize that both parties approved each other, it appears one sided.

Thanks for your help!

We had this problem in my office. Both of you must delete each other completely and then one of you sends a re-request to the other to be added and the other accepts that request and then the originator confirms the acceptance. Yes, it's a tedious solution but it fixed it for everyone here.

Step by step on how to use the messenger


To use Yahoo Messenger, you first need to download it. Here is the link to the latest version which is Yahoo Messenger 10:

http://messenger.yahoo.com/platform/win

If you want to use Chat Rooms, these are available on the US version of Yahoo Messenger 10. Just click on the US flag at the bottom of the download page.

Once downloaded, this is how you can add your contacts and friends:

Click on "Contacts" in the top of the "Messenger" window pane.

Click on "Add a Contact".

You will then see two options. Either you can add somebody from their Messenger ID or email address or you can choose a contact from your address book.

For each contact you add, click on "Next" to take you through the process. An invitation will then be sent to each one you have added. Their names will appear on your Messenger List with a message "Add Request Pending". This message will disappear when the invitation is accepted.

TO IM SOMEONE:

You right click on the contact that you want to IM and then click on " Instant Message". Another box will open up for you to type your message in. When you have finished typing your message, hit the "Send" button on the right of the box you are typing in.

If the person is showing as "online", he will get the message straight away. If the person if "offline", he will receive the message as soon as he signs into Yahoo Messenger.

To use email chat, you need to sign yourself in on your email page. Next to your username, you will see a status which may be set to "Offline" at the moment. Click on it and change your status to "Available".

How can i add friends to my yahoo messenger


Well follow the steps given below .....

In the Yahoo! Messenger window, click the Add button. (With the Windows version, you can also click the Messenger menu and then select Add a Friend/Group.)

  • Step 1. Enter your friend's exact Yahoo! ID or alias name. Your friend must have a Yahoo! ID in order for you to add them to your list. Important: If your friend does not have Yahoo! ID or Yahoo! Messenger yet, make sure to send them an invitation and download instructions.

  • Step 2: Select the group to which you want the friend to be added. If you want to create a new group, just type the name in the space provided. Groups help you keep track of friends (e.g, work friends, chat friends, etc.) separately. Note: Group names cannot contain spaces or special characters.
  • Step 3: Choose whether you want to use your main Yahoo! ID or one of your aliases (profiles) to add your friend. Your friend will only see the ID or alias that you choose, and not any of the others that you might have. Remember that you may need to close the Add dialog box and reopen it to see your new Yahoo! aliases.
  • Step 4: Send your friend a message to appear along with the notice that you've added them.
Note: When you add a friend to your list, the friend is automatically notified and given the option to add you in return. If the friend adds you in return, you are notified.


good luck...:-)

Friends' yahoo messenger ID blocked.Can't add it to my msgr list!


I have used Zak's nobuddy before - it has been updated to work with yahoo's newest protocols.

Test: (A) I have 2 yahoo ID's - I added each to the other:
(B) I use Yahoo Messenger version 9.0.0.2162
(C) I was invisible mode at all times on each ID

1 I then got this zak nobuddy to remove one from the other:
2 It worked (although it left no message - I was simply gone).
3 I then performed the normal add request - this too worked fine and I was added again as soon as ID2 accepted.

You say it's blocked from your contact list:
I would check from messengers menu bar
messenger/ preferences/ ignore list and see if your friends ID is in there.
