No more booting out of yahoo messenger rooms

1. I'm writing this tip for those novices who use yahoo messenger and login to different rooms in yahoo messenger for chatting purpose and when they are stuck in between an arguments with experts who knows ins and outs of software they are being booted by a guy who is smart enough to use a booting software.

2. So here I'm providing you with a tip or you may call it a trick through which you can stop that booter from booting you out of that room and continue your argument in that room and tease him so much that he stops using that software thinking that it is useless.

3. As of now the only booter which I know is working on yahoo messenger seems to be utilised through conference invitation in yahoo messenger. The coder who coded this booter was smart enough to understand users psychology that when they will receive such type of anonymous or you may call with something vague names (cause the bot makers are such software which coders use to create multiple bots or ids which are vague) conference invitation they will click on close button and thats the trigger of the booting mechanism. If you wish to get booted out of the room simply click on the close button and you will be booted out but in case you don't wish then read para 4.

4. Once you click on close button to that particular anonymous conference invitation you will be booted out of that room and you will be no longer be able to post in that room or read any messages posted out there.

5. The best and 100% tried way out of this booting software or you can call it an anti yahoo booter trick that makes you remain in the room and continue posting your comments and continue with your argument is that whenever you receive such an invitation simply click on minimize button and let it remain there don't click on any other command button in that conference invitation window till you have finished your chat and you wish to log off. If you wish you are definitely welcome to experiment but this was the trick due to which I've never been booted out of yahoo chat rooms.

6. So go and try it on and please do come back cause I will continue posting such simple tricks about yahoo messenger booting and anti booting techniques. I am always against those booters and will continue reading those source codes of booting software and helping you people out. If you guys feel that my work is appreciable then kindly do visit again. I will always putup something new for you people.

How to Change a Yahoo ID Name for a Chat Room |

From the main page of, click on the "More Yahoo! Services" option at the left side of the screen. In the pop-up screen, click on the"Chat" option. The following page will direct you to a place where you can download Yahoo! Messenger. Make sure you download the correct version that is compatible with your operating system, and that youclosely follow the appropriate steps for installing the chatting tool. Wait to be asked to enter your Yahoo! ID and password in order to sign on.You may already have a Yahoo! ID if you have previously signed up for a Yahoo! service. The majority of users typically have a Yahoo! ID from using Yahoo! Mail. You can sign on with the same user ID and password you use for your Yahoo! Mail if you would like. But keep in mind that members of a chat room might have easier access to finding out who you are. The safest and best option is to create an alternative ID name and password. Instead of signing into Yahoo! Messenger with the user ID you already have,click on the "Create Yahoo! ID" option at the bottom the Yahoo!Messenger page. A new screen should appear that prompts you to create an entirely new user ID. However, this time, only include the minimal information needed to create a user ID. For example, you do not need to include your alternative email. When finished, click on "Create MyAccount."Now that you have an alternate Yahoo! ID, only use your newly created user ID for when you enter a chat room. You can still sign onto Yahoo!Messenger using your normal Yahoo! ID to chat with trusted friends.Once you are signed on with your normal Yahoo! ID, you can switch to your alternate user ID before entering chat rooms. The following, final step will help you with this simple process. Clickon "Profile" in the top toolbar, then click on "My Profiles." Now clickon "Edit Profiles." You will be taken to your normal Yahoo! profile.Click on "Account Info" in the top, right-hand corner of the page.Click on "Edit/Create Aliases" on the right-hand side of the page. You can now add the new Yahoo! ID you have created. Once this is complete,go back to Yahoo! Messenger and click on "Join a Yahoo! Chat Room" frothe "File" option in top toolbar. At the top of the chat-room pop-up,you now have the option to switch your Yahoo! ID before entering a room.
