O.P. Online logs: Discontinuation of service


Online logs [url] http://www.msgplus.net/Features/Messenger-Plus-Live#LogStorage[/url] lets you view your online Windows Live Messenger chat log directly from the msgplus.net website when logged into your Messenger Plus! account.


By the end of November, Yuna Software will discontinue support for chat logs online for Messenger Plus! for Windows Live Messenger.  We are developing a function so that you can download your chat log history.   

Although you can still save your chat logs online in the meantime, we strongly recommend that you start saving your chat logs locally.

Please keep your eye on posts in the forum for further information regarding this issue.

Exactly, a couple steps backward

Why is this being discontinued?

Really starting to lose faith in MsgPlus! Since the Yuna takeover/sale :(

I am not using it so it won't affect me. But I am wondering how much people and what percentage of Plus! users were using it? Can you give statistics about this feature?

Chances are they won't. But I am really wondering what the reasoning is behind this. What it likely comes down to is the bottom line. The service is likely costing them too much money.

Next thing you're going to see is in app advertisements. You'll be in the Preferences & Options window and will see a text advertisement somewhere.

Very slow, unreliabe, not secure, etc.... And don't get me started on the actual user interface of the online chat logging feature... very very inconvenient and user unfriendly....

And I suspect, judging from bug reports and people complaining on these forums, that I'm far from the only one thinking that. As such, I guess that the usage level has seriously dropped. Making it also not worth the costs anymore...

Just my 2 cents of speculation....
I once used it too, until I got fed up with all the problems related to it, so....

So, imho, removing that feature is long overdue (but I do hope that someday a better online logging system will be created.... one where you can choose your host, etc).

Nothing new. Patchou did that before too (Plus! 3? or was it Plus! 2 ???). Either way, people have even suggested this as an alternative for the adware. So, it wont be too bad if they did that.
I would welcome something like that over adware anyday tbh (as long as it doesn't "take over" the settings dialogs and as long as it doesn't slow the viewing of dialogs down) .

A step back? Sure. But like Cookie said, it wasn't great to begin with. The cost was probably too much. My concern is that a huge portion of the userbase (read: nearly all) don't use the forums and will probably have no indication that their logs will be unavailable after a certain date. I think we're going to get a lot of posts about this from annoyed and angry users.

I don't recall Cyril doing this at all! And you're right it is a welcomed change.

I was logged out of WLM and continually received Plus! promotions while logged out. I will screenshot it again but seriously it is ridiculous the software is so riddled with advertisements!

I also love how the thread gets a notification then no responses...
