News *This* Big

Hello, World!

We’re finally ready to let everyone in on the ThereIM action. But we still need to control the rate at which people can sign up. So here’s how it works:

1.) At your pleasure, visit and click the “Invite me now!” link

2.) Provide your old avatar name, and a current, working email address.

3.) We will then ‘invite’ that avatar, and send you an email with the details.

4.) After you read your invitation email, carefully, return to and Create A New Avatar, using your old avatar name and password

You won’t be able to login until you have created your new avatar.

Once you’ve done that, you’re set to download and install the ThereIM client and start chatting away in There again. In the background, we’ll make your new avatar look like your old one, and give it all your old stuff, skills, therebux, etc.

If you’re told that all our invitation slots are full, just try again later. We’ll be rapidly freeing space for more invitations as we gain comfort.

    Wow good to see ” There ” coming back…ressurected as it seems. It appears that the ” join ” There page ( download the IM , password, yada yada page has a need to be cleaned a bit…no biggie, heck I can remember when server maintaince days meant your PAZ probably sunk into the ground ( LOL ). But take your time, write clean code……beta bugs are normal….alpha???……at $10 a month???…..well-l-l-l-l

    I could not recover my legacy avatar ‘GameMaster’ even though I have a bunch of stuff and playtime on it. This is fine, as I wanted to ditch the name anyway – but my other avatar (who, unlike GameMaster, was not a beta avatar) was recoverable. Is there any way to give nbajammer the stuff from GameMaster since the name is no longer allowed?

    For all my fellow Mac users: there is no Mac version at this time! I recommend bootcamp! I’m using it to log into Windows 7 and it works great! πŸ™‚ Yes, you will have to acquire a copy of Windows.

  12. #16 by moondustmadness on 2011.08.09 - 4:23 am

    Good Day My Fellow Therians and what a great day it is! Me and my husband logged into ThereIM last night. While we are still waiting for our inventory to be recovered it was awesome to see our There avi’s once again. Right now I am patiently waiting for my buddy Nobion to get set-up on ThereIM, however if any of you would like to add Moondustmadness as a buddy feel free to do so. We are a day closer to our wonderful world to reopen. Ah the EXCITEMENT!!!! I can’t wait!!!! Have a blessed day everyone!!!!!! β™₯β™₯β™₯

    I tried to get invited again, but got a server error. Maybe they shut down for the night (3:21am pdst). Ya think? rogl.

    look at the number of comments LOL

  17. #21 by Amoux on 2011.08.08 - 11:02 pm

    Having the same issue with my password… I just can’t seem to remember which one I had used back then. I’ll keep trying, but currently on lockout. It might help if the lockout was taken off for now while we try to figure it out? Unless that’s too much spam and makes things troublesome for you guys, of course. Not sure if I had a secret question set or not, but no luck when I tried that recovery option. It said my email/avatar didn’t exist.

    • #22 by Amoux on 2011.08.08 - 11:10 pm

      Ah.. using with Firefox was leaving the forms out. I was only seeing this:

      To reclaim your avatar and possessions, you need to remember your old avatar name and password. Then just use those values when you register your new avatar.
      * I remember my old name and password, just let me register.

      I remembered how I once had form issues in the past and the advice from There was to use Internet Explorer instead and bingo, that gave me the entire form to fill out. I just tried doing it but that account is still locked. Guess I’ll give it a try later on. πŸ™‚

  18. #23 by Goddess_Lexcee on 2011.08.08 - 10:15 pm

    I CANT WAIT TO COME HOME. Says invites are full so far!

    I just want to tell everyone that I got onto ThereIM and its so cool to feel back at home again

  20. #25 by Ashley on 2011.08.08 - 10:09 pm

    Will there be ThereIM for mac? Please Answer.

  21. #26 by Brandyn Rlp There on 2011.08.08 - 9:08 pm

    Thank you very much Makena Team! I can now enjoy a part of There! I’ve stayed up countless hours waiting and finally I got in. It was well worth it. πŸ™‚

  22. #27 by cory on 2011.08.08 - 8:19 pm

    The ‘Help me remember’ Option doesnt do anyting , I can’t remember the password so I can’t do anything

  23. #28 by Justine on 2011.08.08 - 8:18 pm

    I feel dumb asking – but if your only computer is a Mac, should we wait to try to claim our Avatars?

    • #29 by tobstar on 2011.08.09 - 1:26 pm

      I reclaimed my old avatar, went to download the client then realised that .exe files still exist. Luckily I dual-boot Windows 7 so a quick restart and I was in ThereIM. What confused me though was I thought there was a Mac version for ThereIM?

      • #30 by Justine on 2011.08.09 - 2:51 pm

        Idk – it seems that there is not. I wish I had the funds to get my computer dual-booting. Sounds pretty cool πŸ™‚

  24. #31 by Jennifer Taylor Waggoner on 2011.08.08 - 7:51 pm

    I am so in THEREIM! WOOHOO! Thanks MW! I am Jennyw9wkids. U have no idea how u have made my day..week..month. Or maybe you do. I am SO EXCITED. got a grin from ear to ear πŸ™‚ Thank you Thank you Thank you to MW and is AWSOME Team!

  27. #34 by Anachron on 2011.08.08 - 5:39 pm

    nevermind -> I think I was seeing the port attempt before changing the -a to -l etc. all good.

  28. #35 by Anachron on 2011.08.08 - 5:30 pm

    what ports need to be allowed (in, out or both) for thereim? I enabled the only one that had problems (5xxxx) – but it still has problems connecting. (are there more than one?)

  29. #36 by Reo on 2011.08.08 - 5:17 pm

    Bit of a funny issue when too many people join a group chat. One becomes a bit estranged from the group.

  32. #39 by tobstar on 2011.08.08 - 5:03 pm

    Still no Mac version? That’s awkward…

      • #41 by tobstar on 2011.08.08 - 9:37 pm

        Yeah I run Windows 7 on Boot Camp… But I thought there was a native OS X client? I guess the development of that got put on the shelf when There closed.

    • #42 by Michelle on 2011.08.08 - 5:45 pm

      This is the email I received back about the forgotten password issue

      [Canned Response #2 -Samsyn]

      To reclaim your old avatar today, you will need to remember its old password. To reset the old password requires
      that you were previously set up with a ‘secret question and answer’ (and that you remember the answer). If you
      cannot remember these things today, we will be unable to help you today.

      Please note that passwords and secret answers are case-sensitive, so “hello” is not the same as “Hello”.
      When we have some customer support set up, we might be able to reset you manually, if we work out a suitable
      authentication protocol. But I don’t know when that will be, so it’s better for everyone if you could just remember
      it, so keep on trying! (it will lockup for a few minutes after each batch of failed attempts, however)

      But if you can’t remember it today, don’t worry, we aren’t going to throw your data away. We’ll work it all out
      eventually, but not today.

      • #43 by NathanAvis on 2011.08.08 - 5:59 pm

        Hey Michelle, thanks for sharing that.

        I’ll wait til a better support system is set up and contact Makena at that time. Not worried that I can’t use ThereIM right now (though it would be nice), just as long as I’m still ME in and will be able to log back in at some point :p

  33. #44 by jerzeesweetheart on 2011.08.08 - 5:00 pm

    My password isn’t working 😦 I really don’t think i ever changed it, and then i go to reset it…and it says i have no secret question…which im pretty sure i had before because I think at some point I reset the password….And the page says if you dont have a secret question/answer we’re screwed???? IS there ANYWAY to retrieve this??? Help! πŸ™‚

    • #45 by Tre_Ghost on 2011.08.09 - 3:32 am

      you do realize you said “I really don’t think I ever changed it” along with “because I think at some point I reset the password” lol

  38. #50 by Reo on 2011.08.08 - 4:37 pm

    Is there an alternate download location for the ThereIM client? The official link is telling me that the bandwidth limit has been exceeded, and I can’t download it.

    After not making GP -> I’ve been checking for weeks at least 3-10 times daily. I finally see the ‘invite me’ (since a few hours ago when I didn’t see it) – and it’s already full?? “Sorry to tease you, but apparently we’re not sending any more invitations at this time. Please try again later.” sigh. Will continue trying.

    • #62 by Seg_Vio on 2011.08.08 - 3:59 pm

      Just refresh the page, It says that when it’s under a heavy load (too many people trying at once).

  47. #63 by Abby on 2011.08.08 - 3:53 pm

    I feel ignored, as no one is answering my problem to my password. I can’t remember it at all. I’ve tried everything I would’ve used and nothing worked. I’m really irritated at this point, and I have no way out of this until reopens most likely. -_-

    • #64 by softNdark on 2011.08.08 - 5:03 pm

    • #65 by shanghei on 2011.08.08 - 5:13 pm

      Hang in there Abby, i have asked the same question 4 times, and no answer… if you got the registration email, the “Help me Remember” link will ask you the security question (if you set one up, if you didn’t, there doesn’t seem to be anything else to do at this point) but i can’t get an answer as to if the password reset emails are being sent or not.

      if you have mozilla firefox, and are on the same computer as you had when was opened, someone said that saved passwords are there… but i have a different compy, so that doesn’t help me.

      • #66 by Abby on 2011.08.09 - 5:19 am

        Whenever I click on that link, it just gives me a bunch of nothing. “To reclaim your avatar and possessions, you need to remember your old avatar name and password. Then just use those values when you register your new avatar.” How does that help anything? It gives me no security questions what so ever.

  48. #67 by hatindakid12 on 2011.08.08 - 3:48 pm

    Hello.I submited my avatar lil while ago and i dont remember the pw. i tried to reset it wit the link in the email and i keep gettin a

    We have tried to reset the password for the old avatar:

    Press your browser’s back arrow to try again.
    messege and i dont know how to reset that, The only musical group id ever pick would be Boyz II men but its not working..

    • #68 by Seg_Vio on 2011.08.08 - 3:57 pm

      Be careful what info you add in public! try typing that same name in different styles: Boys 2 Men, boys II men, Etc.
      The answer might be case sensitive meaning that you will need to either use or not use caps.

      • #69 by hatindakid12 on 2011.08.08 - 4:09 pm

      If you know their names, add them manually. I think that part had to be cleared for this to work and can’t remember if it will be brought back at a later time or not.

      This link is your only salvation, but it won’t work unless you created a “secret question”. or can eventually remember your password.

        Sorry, I didn’t read well enough. Read the new post MW created. The Amamzon service is getting a ton of returned mails.

  55. #81 by shanghei on 2011.08.08 - 3:22 pm

    hello Michael… you are replying to a lot of people, but not those of us asking if the password reset that we access from the email to activate our account is working or no. please answer… if it’s working and we just have to wait for what i am sure is a flood of resets…. cool beans !!! if not, i don’t want to keep buggin ya…
    thanks again for bringing back… .it’s my home πŸ˜€

    • #82 by Seg_Vio on 2011.08.08 - 3:39 pm

      He has stated before that unless you have created an answer for a “secret question” that there is not much he can do for you.
      It sucks, but that is a security precaution that they take to keep your avatar safe from theiving hands.

      Your best bet is to keep working at your password. I seen in a earlier post that you had a concusion, keep in mind that when you are excited about something, that it makes it harder to think. I normally take my mind off whatever it is that i am trying to find an answer to when that happens to me, and while I am not even thinking nothing about what it is that I could not come up with the answer to…that is when it finally pops in my head.

      I’m not saying that to be a smart alec, I’m sencerely trying to help since the password seems to be your only passage right now.

      • #83 by shanghei on 2011.08.08 - 3:51 pm

        welllllll…. i’m not the one with the concussion (but i am blonde, if that helps)…. lol…

        but no offense taken… and i did have my secret question answer, and i got a message that said my reset password is being sent to my email…

        i’m just trying to find out if that is happening or not.
        and i still don’t know… so i replied to MW’s latest post about the email delays, hoping for an answer there.

        but thanks Seg_Vio for the reply… hugs !! see you There…. soon i hope !!

      • #84 by Seg_Vio on 2011.08.08 - 4:23 pm

    • #87 by Michael Wilson on 2011.08.08 - 3:20 pm

      From the Invitation Email

      After installing ThereIM, you need to modify its shortcut as described in the invitation email.
      If you installed ThereIM to the default folder, your ShortCut Target should look like this when you’ve edited it correctly:

      Target: C:\Makena\ThereIM\ThereIM.exe -l

      Here are the instructions from the invitation email:

      After installing ThereIM, you will need to tweak it a little before it can contact the new cluster

      * Locate the desktop shortcut which launches ThereIM
      * RIGHT-click on the icon and select ‘Properties’ from the popup menu
      * Locate ‘Target’ edit box on the properties dialog
      * Change the “-a xx.xx.xx.xx” part of the target to:


      (Note: that -l is a lower-case ‘L’, not a ‘one’ nor an ‘i’)

      * Close the properties dialog, and you should be able to log in to with ThereIM

      • #88 by Seg_Vio on 2011.08.08 - 3:27 pm

        Wow, if your head hurts as bad as mine…there is a pressure point between the thumb and index finger and if you use the thumb and index from the other hand to squeeze that area; will relieve a headache temporarily. (use the tips of both fingers to squeeze about half way through the muscle that resides there)

        apply generous pressure without causing pain.

      • #89 by boxingtosteruk on 2011.08.08 - 3:29 pm

        Thank you for such a fast reply, it worked.
        Just to be sure, I won’t have any of my old avatar clothes ?

    Just want to give a great big thanks for all the hard work put into this. I’m patiently waiting for a response for those of us who cant remember our passwords or the passwords simply don’t work. Will check again tomorrow. All those who got in successfully…..have fun!

    After a couple of tries and no go’s, I was able to recreate my avatar. As of right now, I don’t have all my inventory back yet. I am pcdoctor if anyone wants to add me.

  62. #96 by debpitts on 2011.08.08 - 3:04 pm

    I have successfully restored my avie and can login to thereim, but when I click on profile or clubs, I get redirected to a login screen. When I enter my login and password it just loops back to the login screen. Thereim works great. Is this happening to anyone else? How is it corrected?

      Set Internet Explorer as a default browser..

    • #98 by Seg_Vio on 2011.08.08 - 3:17 pm

      This may sound silly, but bare with me…

      Check to be sure Caps Lock is not on

      Check your internet settings and make sure you have cookies enabled

      If I think of anything else that might cause that I’ll add it later. used to be in tools> internet options…Now its a gear at the top right>internetoptions (internet Explorer)

    Who be the Ass-Yo who tries to log into ThereIM in the wrong set of boxes and tries to download ThereIM into a Macbook Pro? I’m not saying anything… Now time to lug out the junk (broken VAIO). ‘Yikes!

        Rick posted this up above a ways … this works!! I am in but not seeing my avvie yet. lol

        “DO THIS

        After installing ThereIM, you will need to tweak it a little before it can contact the new cluster

        Locate the desktop shortcut which launches ThereIM
        RIGHT-click on the icon and select β€˜Properties’ from the popup menu
        Locate β€˜Target’ edit box on the properties dialog
        Change the β€œ-a xx.xx.xx.xx” part of the target to:
        (Note: that -l is a lower-case β€˜L’, not a β€˜one’ nor an β€˜i’)

        Close the properties dialog, and you should be able to log in to with ThereIM
        Putting that another way, if you installed ThereIM to the default location (c:/Makena/ThereIM), then your β€˜Target’ property should look like this when you’re done:

        Target: C:\Makena\ThereIM\ThereIM.exe -l

      • #107 by Eating, Sputters, Pneumonia, ect. on 2011.08.08 - 3:20 pm

        Okay, Thanks to Rick’s previous post, it’s helped me out, and ThereIM is up and running.

        DO THIS

        After installing ThereIM, you will need to tweak it a little before it can contact the new cluster

        Locate the desktop shortcut which launches ThereIM
        RIGHT-click on the icon and select β€˜Properties’ from the popup menu

        It’s lauched .. I’m in .. and I’ll check back daily … okay .. maybe more often then that πŸ˜‰ .. to see when my stuff has returned.

        Thanks again, Michael .. It’s a wonderful big step back in the door to There. πŸ™‚

    • #109 by Michael Wilson on 2011.08.08 - 3:21 pm

      It’s a symptom of “emailus illiterus”

      After installing ThereIM, you need to modify its shortcut as described in the invitation email.
      If you installed ThereIM to the default folder, your ShortCut Target should look like this when you’ve edited it correctly:

      Target: C:\Makena\ThereIM\ThereIM.exe -l

      Here are the instructions from the invitation email:

      After installing ThereIM, you will need to tweak it a little before it can contact the new cluster

      * Locate the desktop shortcut which launches ThereIM
      * RIGHT-click on the icon and select ‘Properties’ from the popup menu
      * Locate ‘Target’ edit box on the properties dialog
      * Change the “-a xx.xx.xx.xx” part of the target to:


      (Note: that -l is a lower-case ‘L’, not a ‘one’ nor an ‘i’)

      * Close the properties dialog, and you should be able to log in to with ThereIM

      • #110 by cierdwyn on 2011.08.08 - 3:30 pm

        In *my* case .. more like emailus exciticus. hehe

        Thanks again. πŸ™‚

    Soon big MW you will fall back into obscurity once again as you like it. Once the environment is up I am sure this place will die down to 5% of what it is today. What a relief for you. We will all get the There mentality back as it should be. The control you have on us as a bunch of little avatar sheep is near its end. At least as we know it today with your words either beating us down or letting it go in one ear and out the other. Obviously you will be behind the scenes however pulling the strings. Maybe you will feel like the guy behind the curtain in the Wizard of Oz. Keep the power and enjoy your jet-setting. You have clearly showed us your lifestyle within this blog. We are all very happy for you that you have the means to do this. As you mentioned the other day you were flying back for one day. Meaning you would probably fly off to another undisclosed location. Wow what a lucky bumb you are. Probably a little trophy wife by your side. Wow!!

    • #115 by Kayleigh Lace on 2011.08.08 - 6:34 pm

      Wow, Sara. If you’re jealous of his lifestyle – why do you keep coming back to forums? Why are you obssessed with where he goes? Seriously! I suggest some bran – and deleting of this blog – and maybe getting out of the house to take a walk. 😦 So sad!

      • #122 by NathanAvis on 2011.08.08 - 3:32 pm

        These sort of posts havent received any replies. My guess is there isn’t any other kind of validation system at present and responding to them wouldnt be of much good. We will just have to keep retrying our passwords. It really sucks

  70. #123 by cierdwyn on 2011.08.08 - 2:45 pm

    The good .. GREAT news .. is that I have gotten in and reclaimed my avvie and account and have been able to log into There Central. /cheers

    I can’t wait to talk to my old friends again in avatar form.

    • #163 by NathanAvis on 2011.08.08 - 1:44 pm

      OK. I tried the help me remember stuff bit. I dont know my password. and i apparently have no secret question. is there any way i can combat this, mr. wilson? im willing to provide evidence i am who i am such as my latest card which is registered to an address near my previous one.

      • #164 by Amanda Presswood on 2011.08.08 - 2:12 pm

        Says my av is locked as well. Im almost 100% positive that the password is right, but maybe my birthdate isnt. IDK if i used my real birthdate or not cuz i dont like giving out tons of personal info…but i too didnt have a “secret question”. Sad thing is, every knows im MiseryG0ddess 😦 i have credit card info and all that good stuff as well. Even have my old email addy. Dont know what has me so stuck in this process. Im getting SO frustrated!

      • #165 by NathanAvis on 2011.08.08 - 2:34 pm

        As fas as I know, the birthday should not affect the outcome as long as it lets the server know that you’re oplder than 18. So keep trying with the password.

    Somethings a miss here! I had my password changed by There not long before it closed and never changed it. Now I am using that password (it is in a Email so I’m typing/copy pasting) and it’s not accepting it. I even tried the only 3 passwords that I used for There after waiting 20 min for the safeguard!

    I’m a sad panda!

  99. #180 by Mr_Perry on 2011.08.08 - 1:28 pm

    words just can not express how I feel right now…
    I almost feel a little stupid that at my age I am this emotional over a “game”
    but there it is.
    Mr. Wilson I owe you BIG TIME.
    God bless ya’ll each and every one.

    • #181 by David H on 2011.08.08 - 3:37 pm

      You owe him $10 per month to be exact, at some time in the near future.
      Nah, just kidding! you can have it for free πŸ™‚

      Kidding again!

      Anyways, tried to signup but I haven’t got the email in abuot 5 minutes, so a bit wierd.

  100. #182 by Joeydantonio on 2011.08.08 - 1:27 pm

    Just want to take this moment to say THANK YOU to EVERYONE involved in making this day actually become a reality. Especially Michael Wilson for opening the door and making everything possible to be ‘worked on’ and ‘tweaked’ into a reality for all of us. A virtual reality that is πŸ˜‰

    Looking forward to seeing everyone THERE! Feel free to request me as a friend anyone, my list is currently lonely.

  101. #183 by Rick on 2011.08.08 - 1:26 pm

    im gettin an error logging in , my internet is extremely slow also can that be the cause? and if so will i ever be able to log in with it?

    • #184 by Ethan on 2011.08.08 - 6:47 pm

      Did you do the extra instructions that you have to do after you install There IM? I used to get those errors till I noticed those things on the email :/

  102. #185 by S_S_B_P_D on 2011.08.08 - 1:25 pm

    Is there anyway i can get my password from the There login? its saved in there I see it just can’t remember it. ‘darn

    • #186 by Jonathan on 2011.08.08 - 1:54 pm

      Presumably, they wont store your password, but use one way ‘encryption’ (which isn’t really encryption) πŸ™‚

  103. #187 by Jordy26 on 2011.08.08 - 1:21 pm

    Anyone I try to ‘Add’ or ‘Call’ says this “Person you are trying to call does not exist. Please try calling someone else.”

    People can add me though it seems.

  104. #188 by Esky on 2011.08.08 - 1:20 pm

    I got in without a hitch… It’s so nice to be in ThereIM again! Can’t wait till my Avie is his old self… πŸ™‚

  105. #189 by Bronnieb There on 2011.08.08 - 1:10 pm

    Have successfully invited myself twice now and I realise that this is a busy day for you guys, but it’s upsetting to have my avatar in lockdown after waiting all this time. I had a secret question and have answered it…still waiting for new pw to be sent. Can you just give an idea how long the wait will be?? Just a hint?? Please…..

    • #190 by Bronnieb There on 2011.08.08 - 1:28 pm

      Ok then guess I have to do the dishes, make the beds and hang out the washing instead of chatting in ThereIM…..has my husband anything to do with this????????

  106. #191 by EvenStupider on 2011.08.08 - 1:09 pm

    Alright Mr. Wilson, would you say its finally time you unbann EvenStupider? :))

  107. #192 by Mark on 2011.08.08 - 1:04 pm

    πŸ™‚ request is accepted, might be in soon… Brainziac is on his way

  108. #193 by Charlene Durbin on 2011.08.08 - 1:04 pm

    Well I guess I’m just stuck. I thought for sure I knew my password, but when I enter it to create my avie it just keeps telling me to “Create Password and FINISH”. Silly me did not set up the secret question…grrr. So, am I doing something wrong or is my password really wrong (I used the same one for a long time and don’t remember changing it)?? Will there be a way to recover the passwords without a huge investigation?? Congrats to those enjoying the IM. Also congrats to Team Phoenix for an excellent job. Thanx in advance for any answers you or anyone else can provide. πŸ™‚

  109. #194 by trevor9393 on 2011.08.08 - 1:01 pm

    Darn, I forgot my secret questions for my favorite account.

  110. #195 by Adam Macy on 2011.08.08 - 12:59 pm

    i cant believe it but IM IN!!!!!!!!!! name is adam247

  111. #196 by Gabi on 2011.08.08 - 12:58 pm

    I’ll keep trying! Every time I have tried it’s been filled up so far. I am so dumping my SL account now.

  112. #197 by DJHussey on 2011.08.08 - 12:58 pm

    I’m online if anyone wants to add me on the IM πŸ˜€

  113. #198 by Innie on 2011.08.08 - 12:54 pm

    Ok, I got signed up. Can’t connect to ThereIM, however. It keeps timing out. I am pretty sure its from everyone hitting it at once. I will try tomorrow πŸ™‚

    Thank you Michael, Bruce, and Samsyn for all your sweat, tears, and hard work. Love you!

    • #199 by McKensy on 2011.08.08 - 1:37 pm

      Hi Innie – did you remember to modify the desktop shortcut according to the instructions in your email?

  114. #200 by Basya on 2011.08.08 - 12:54 pm

    Gosh! Had to go out for awhile today — I saw the “Invite Me” when I got back, but then it was all filled up for now! 😦 Will any more be allowed in today or will we have to wait till tomorrow or another day?

    BTW, lovely picture — reminds me of a mountain in Colorado!

    Thanks anyway — am glad to see the progress going forward. Will try later (and keep trying, trying….)

    Cya in There!


  115. #201 by Egern on 2011.08.08 - 12:53 pm

    the email tells me to change something in my ThereIm.exe properties, can someone tell me what that is the link in the email dosnt work, i have installed and working, but i cant connect :/

  116. #202 by Rebecca McArthur on 2011.08.08 - 12:42 pm

    Hey all,


    πŸ™‚ Add me

  117. #203 by toufovou on 2011.08.08 - 12:38 pm

    Ok I made it in. Everything ran smoothly. No problems at all.
    The email delayed 3-4min but made it in my inbox and not spam folder.
    The email was very well written and the whole procedure was easy to do.
    Congrats to team Phoenix for their great work!!!!

  118. #204 by Abby on 2011.08.08 - 12:37 pm

    MW, I can’t remember my password, and I can’t remember the email I used back on What can I do? I’ve tried all the possible passwords I could’ve used, and none of it worked…

  119. #205 by Francis_7 on 2011.08.08 - 12:36 pm

    Fantastic news which leaves me feeling happy and with a slight scent of pine too! This is an exciting day indeed!

  122. #210 by VM on 2011.08.08 - 12:30 pm

    If you dont play the “soon-to-be” monthly fee, will your account just be not accessible?

    • #211 by VM on 2011.08.08 - 12:35 pm

      Meant to type ‘pay’, not play..

  123. #212 by Dina Warren on 2011.08.08 - 12:30 pm

    Thank you so much MW…. I am so excited and I just can’t hide it. I’m about to lose control and I think I like it….

  128. #217 by Rhonda Ebert/ EmmaJean on 2011.08.08 - 12:18 pm

    I almost had a heart attack when it said, “Something went horribly wrong” haha

    Thanks for all the hard work MW!

    Patience is gold πŸ˜€

  133. #231 by Joeydantonio on 2011.08.08 - 12:00 pm

    I can’t get the password right, and I only ever used the same 3 – just switched them around every so often I wanted to change them up. Anything I can do to prove my identity for a password reset? I tried the ‘help me remember stuff’ option, but I never filed out my security question it says. Any other options? Thank you in advance.

    • #232 by Charlene Durbin on 2011.08.08 - 12:08 pm

      Same here.

    • #233 by Paulerbear on 2011.08.08 - 12:13 pm

      JD, keep up the awesome designs when we get back!! it will be cool to hear from you again!

      • #234 by Joeydantonio on 2011.08.08 - 12:40 pm

        Thank you Paulerbear! Looking forward to it! πŸ™‚

    • #235 by Tre_Ghost on 2011.08.08 - 12:49 pm

      yep me too. I know for a fact I know my password and it aint working at all, the same 3 passwords I’ve always used and none work, and no option to reset password even using the same email associated with my avatar 😦 So I guess this means I have to wait and then start over.

    • #236 by Joeydantonio on 2011.08.08 - 12:55 pm

      * Never mind MW, I remembered it. I must have been locked out when I tried my third one LOL my apologies! I am in and everything is working fine for me so far!*

  134. #237 by Roxannie on 2011.08.08 - 11:59 am

    so if you can’t remember your password you can’t do this??????? i’m gonna cry, i can’t remember mine, when will the retrieve your password be working?????

  135. #238 by MrScrooge on 2011.08.08 - 11:58 am

    I love seeing everyone going crazy here, it’s awesome. Also, love the photo!

      Ya, it’s gonna get VERY busy in the next few days πŸ™‚
      Don’t you just love the views from Big Sky Montana? Fantastic scenery there!
      See you in IN,

      • #240 by Michael Wilson on 2011.08.08 - 12:38 pm

        I’m not in Big Sky. Good guess though.

      • #241 by Lady_Tigrane on 2011.08.08 - 2:33 pm

        Colorado then?.. almost looks like one of the foothills to the rocky mountain national park….. on the east side maybe in Estes Park.

      • #242 by Lady_Tigrane on 2011.08.08 - 2:36 pm

        took another look.. last couple years Estes and RMNP have had a Mountain Pine Beetle problem. Those trees are in fairly decent shape so might not be Colorado.

  136. #243 by GaryBob on 2011.08.08 - 11:57 am

    Thank you so much! This has completely changed my week for the better. It’s so good to be back πŸ˜€

  137. #244 by Lorna McIntosh on 2011.08.08 - 11:54 am

    I seem to have forgotten my Password (i think). Can this be changed? Im sure its the right password, although it does not seem to be accepted?

    • #245 by Charlene Durbin on 2011.08.08 - 12:07 pm

      I’m in the same boat. I don’t remember changing my password, but the one I am using will not work. 😦

      • #246 by NathanAvis on 2011.08.08 - 2:22 pm

        ive timed out so i cant even test the ones i “think” it might be. since 2009/10 i have changed passwords a lot, and also one of my emails expired cos i changed isp (i think this might have been registered to the account). really not sure what to do. i do get some relief though i was abe to get my name back, even if i cant use it!

  138. #247 by jonathan5k2006 on 2011.08.08 - 11:53 am

    I hope we will all get in today :))))))))

  139. #248 by Tre_Ghost on 2011.08.08 - 11:52 am

    lol wow lemme tell u just how fast it filled up, the site was the same, my pc was being anal so I rebooted. Came back, the update was here and went to the site, bam it was full already. Damn lurkers lurking more than I was. Good news though, the remember links helped me, I was way off on the email I thought was linked to my account. After 6 guesses I remembered the correct email, reset my password to it, so I will get my old avie at least πŸ™‚

  140. #249 by VM on 2011.08.08 - 11:51 am

    Beautiful pictures, MW, by the way, I’m so excited to see my old avatar!!

    Thanks Michael for the pic and the update. It’s fantastic to see…

  142. #251 by Jordan on 2011.08.08 - 11:49 am

    May we create new avatars for us who doesn’t have an account or will we need an account to get in early for ThereIM?

  151. #263 by Jordy26 on 2011.08.08 - 11:35 am

    Fantastic. I’ve just done it and had no problems at all.

    Email took about 3 minutes but eventually arrived in INBOX which is great. (I use GMAIL).

    Currently doesn’t show any of my friends but thats eithier because they are all offline or still retrieving from servers. Either way, great to be on ThereIM!

  152. #264 by Winged on 2011.08.08 - 11:35 am

    So unless we are able to register there is no way of saving are old name untill we are in the legal age?
    or you are still working on it?

    • #265 by Michael Wilson on 2011.08.08 - 11:43 am

  153. #267 by Mark B. (Cowbellwalken) on 2011.08.08 - 11:35 am

    Luckily for me I’m at work!!!! Haha, I tried but they must have been overwhelmed with invites initially. No big deal; after all this time I’ve got nothing but patience. Oh well; good luck to those that got in so far… I’ll be joining you shortly πŸ˜€

  154. #268 by Camel on 2011.08.08 - 11:34 am

    Dang, 20 minutes after you posted this, and it’s already filled up. Of course, I’d rather be forced to wait than cause the whole system to come toppling down!

  155. #269 by Corey_Lee on 2011.08.08 - 11:32 am

    Hello, i have done registering my old avatar however it was an error at ThereIM’s download page . Could you please send download link of ThereIM?
