O.P. the old days...
Really miss the old days about the Messenger Plus! live, however, time goes as fast as what we think.

Anyone remember here anymore? or just in memories?

I miss MSN Messenger or Windows Live Messenger. what about you?

RE: the old days...
I miss the entire era that came with it sometimes. Not specifically the software, but that is what connected it all...

https://www.facebook.com/officialmsnmemories/ nails it.

The going home from school an "We'll talk on MSN". Spending the rest of the day on there until deep in the night. Teenage drama, talking behind people's back in group chats, passive aggressive blocks, spamming sign-in notifications, making friends around the world. As snapchat may be for some of the current youth, MSN shaped my teenage years. I'm in my 30s now, times are different. But I have a lot of fine memories around it, which is also why I wanted to keep the forum archive around.

Seconded. I learned programming (well, scripting) using MP!L.

I'm glad Menthix is keeping the forum up! Like I said in the shoutbox, I recently rediscovered this archive.

Out of curiosity: does anyone know what happened to Yuna? msgpluslive.net is still up, but slow AF and there doesn't seem to be much going on lately.

Edit: and I bloody HATE Skype :\

Second edit: Menthix, do email notifications of topic replies (i.e. this thread) still work?

Thired. Last week I installed Skype and then MP! for Skype and realized that some of the Plus! features are available after you purchase a licence, $9,95.

Also it is interesting that Apple have recently brought full-screen animation or emoji-suggestive keyboard for what you type in Messages app, with iOS 10 update, which are all MSN features available 10 years ago,

Seems the put out new Plus! for Skype versions until at least somewhere last year. But no idea if it it still functions on current Skype. As far as it was ever functional. Whichever parent company currently owns it probably keeps the servers running for some change money.

So, this scam brings in enough money to keep the servers on apparently?

Can confirm: not :P didn't get any email notification of this. Do you see any chance to get them to work? Or would that be too much effort for almost nobody? :P

(edit: damn formatting, I've grown used to reddit :P )

Less users if less server cost. Hell, they could be running it on a VPS for all I know. Mess.be is still around too, hosting is cheap.

I'll make a mental not to maybe look into it someday when the planets align and stuff :p

Speaking of cheap hosting, I recently-ish found that http://msnpiki.msnfanatic.com/ is down :S
