How to know if your Yahoo chat mate is really offline
Did you know that you can see if your chatmate is really offline or not. Thanks to Web Stuff Scan for providing some tips to know about it
1. But there is a hack which allows you to see whether someone is really offline or not. The easiest way is to directly acess the online status image using the URL – http://opi.yahoo.com/online?u=userid&m=g&t=2 (replace userid with the actual user id).
2. The second way is to start a voice chat with the userid you want to check. If you don’t get an error it indicates that the user is indeed online, but in invisible mode. This works only in previous versions of Yahoo messenger.
3. The only method which seems to work on latest versions of Yahoo messenger is the IMEnviornment hack. First send a message to the user id and then immediately change the IMEnviorment. Now if the guy is really offline, you will get a message “waiting for your friend to load the theme” message. If he is online, you will just get a blank page!
