every now and then, I hear a noise, and I swear its someone trying to instant message me, but since activating my account, I still have no idea how to find out who is messaging, so I need to ask, if someone does I'm you, does it automatically pop up or is there something I'm not doing? cheers, I don't want to come across as ignorant to an I'm is all, and I'm sure I'm getting them lol.
It should automatically pop up. There will be a box to the left of the 'friends online' bar and it will be highlighted when someone is trying to chat. And on some rare instances, it won't open up when they do.
Well, at the very right bottom of your page there should be this thing that says "friends", if you click on that, you can see which of your friends are online right now. And well, right on the left next to this thing, is where the chat window pops up when someone IMs you. It doesn't completely pop up, but rather just a button in the bottom line that shows the name of the user who messaged you and a number which says how many messages he/she has sent you. If you click on that button, the chat window open...there you go. It's weird you haven't seen it yet, I mean it's a yellow button appearing on the bottom of your page, I wonder why you couldn't see it before.
By the way, this guy palek is probably the most useless user on this site. Whenever I see him answering a question, it's ALWAYS either complete sarcasm or some kind of ranting or some disgusting attempt to be funny. He NEVER actually gives a useful answer, barely ever even answering the actual question. Sorry, I just had to get rid of that.
