Default The new MSN Messenger is horrible

New as in the 2011 versions.

I can't tell who is really online and offline easily anymore and it doesn't show the number of people who are online in your groups.

And oversize ads all over the messenger is just crappy, eats so much memory just for a messenger.

I'll either roll back to the old version or just use pidgin once i find a way to port all my emoticons over.
It was a good idea to integrate everything, but all the features are so disorganized and badly integrated.

1. No more Nicknames
2. Names require both First and Last name
3. Can't click on group names to expand (You need to click on the arrow)
4. Width of the "compact" mode is very wider than it used to for no obvious advantages.
5. Ads seems bigger? maybe it is cause of the width.
6. The default emoticons was ugly and now it is uglier.
7. If they can integrate social feeds why can't they integrate all their live features. (Profile editting, name editting, password change etc.)

Ow, and I was planning on using MSN again soon. Maybe I'll go Trillian or something.

Wasn't aware they updated.

Doubt they fixed the bullshit error "Message can not be delivered to all recipients."
When absolutely nothing is wrong with your connection.

..You're insane.

I love the new messenger. You can link pictures and videos from youtube, and it opens a box that automatically lets you view them in the MSN convo, and watch the videos too. You also have a compact/not compact view button on MSN, so that's really nice. There's also not the annoying bullets beside your sentences and stuff when you type more than one thing before someone else does. And the fact that your display name is your real name and all. Or whatever you signed up with. And the conversation window now has tabs you can use, so it's less clutter on your taskbar, which really helps.


Not sure what people have against this.

Yea it uses the live name as your msn now.
And they have a dumb check in place now which forces you to put a First and Last name.
I gave up trying to bypass it and put a . for it. (So you can't use a nickname anymore, or maybe i haven't found the option)

I thought tabbed chats have been around for quite long or maybe it was my msn plus.

But it is so hard to tell a person online and offline in your list.
The compact isn't as compact as it used to, and i can't easily resize the window's width.

Maybe i'll just wait a while for new msnplus and see if they can fix those features that makes a messenger work like a messenger.

I wish I could go back to MSN 8. I've only had problems with MSN after MSN 9 and up.

Anyway... I'm not a fan of the new MSN, and if they skip out handwriting I'll most likely change messenger for something... else.

Yeah I hate it too... Though I do remember in an earlier version they had that name problem too, but it was soon fixed. Hopefully, enough people complain about it and we start seeing some reverts or options to reverts. I'm really glad that the tabbed conversations option (which is kinda' cool if you talk to a lot of people at once) is toggable though.

You can put in a fake last name, or anything you want as a first name. There are security options you can check where nobody can see what you put your last name as.

I put in a fake last name, but I kept my real first name. I've only been using my real first name as my nick on MSN for the longest time, anyway (I hate it when people use stupid and ridiculous nicks [such as '~``uSeRnAmE``~'], it's very unnecessary [probably why I only give out my MSN to people who I know personally now]).

But by doing that, it also changes the name that appears when you send an email to someone. So if you put a fake last name, if someone gets an email from you, they won't know it's from you. That's a major problem, especially because I use my hotmail for things like business applications and stuff.

And while I hate people who use names like ~'~:PiXiEfAiRyDuSt:~'~ too, being forced to change our whole account's name and be forced to include a last name in our messenger as well is even more unnecessary.

I haven't updated to this new version, and if I can avoid it I will. MSN is fine for me how it is. I wouldn't want my full name showing to everyone constantly [I dont like my 2nd name lol] and the new features that have been described here already aren't really needed for me.

This is why you sign up with a fresh email for MSN, instead of using your main/business email address.

I don't want to. I hate having to deal with multiple email addresses. I already have a school/work email that's somewhat public, and the one I'm currently using I've used since 8th grade. I'm not about to make any more and deal with them. MSN just needs to stay simple and nice, not give us this new crap that sucks bawls. I'm not against change, I'm against change that sucks and cannot be changed back.

Sure do love editing the exe file so I never have to update my MSN. Think I'm still using 6 or 7.

Yeah my sister does that too but it usually causes a lot of problems nowadays, like constant "unable to send/receive message to all reciepients" and junk.

More reasons why new MSN fails:

Lack of bullets when messaging, no toggability at all:


Horrid new emoticons with no way to revert but to make them into custom emoticons one by one, and even then, impossible to use same emoticons with same codes (IE, can't use :P any more to show the old MSN's :P):


You have to deal with this now any time you click a link in an MSN conversation:


Often times you get this and are forced to copy/paste the link into your browser, making much more un-needed effort:
