  1. CUSTOMERS SHOULDN'T HAVE TO WORK AROUND AOL GOLD FAULTS.

    AOL CUSTOMERS SHOULD NOT HAVE TO WORK AROUND ALL THE AOL GOLD PROGRAM FAULTS, DEFICIENCIES, GLITCHES AND REMOVED FEATURES. WE SHOULD RECEIVE WHAT WE ARE PAYING FOR. I EXPECT AOL WILL BE SUED FOR THIS EVENTUALLY. THE NEWS OWNERS ARE CORRUPT AND CERTAINLY INEPT.

  4. 1761 brings back "Re-enter password" after sleeping

    was happening several releases ago, got fixed, now broke again.

    When Windows goes into sleep mode, upon wakening - AOL requires password again - EVEN THOUGH on my desktop, it is remembered!! (i.e. not needed to log on)

  7. Here are some errors or changes that we would like to be made to AOL Gold.  Most of these features were common in older AOL versions

    1.  Right-click and select "ignore" to send an email to "Old" mail.
    2.  Print date and web address at the bottom of printed material.
    3.  Fix the speed of the text to keep up with typing speed when composing emails.
    4.  Eliminate the nearly 100 spam emails daily.  (some are vulgar and offensive)
    5.  Graphics cannot be seen in new emails.  (Only get a long coded number instead.)
    6.  The ability to create and save font colors for emails and future use.
    7.  Stabilize playing of videos that start and stop every few seconds.
    8.  Make it possible for the website address in the address box at the top…

  10. Desk Top Software

    Your desktop software is too large a program with too many things running in the background. I travel and have weak wifi at times. The program barely functions. Also the home screen takes up too much room top to bottom for my lap top. I can't access the bottom of the email page to download attachments, save or delete.

    three really annoying things about Desktop Gold: 1. the sign on screen has my screen name in VERY small type and is black against a blue background. VERY hard to read. 2. If I click on a news panel to read an article, the video starts with sound. I am in an office where there are other things going on. I don't want it to hear that junk unless I choose to. And the "mute" option isn't an option as it start with sound then has to be muted. 3. Now the "inbox" has a "new and old." Different from…

    I have been contacting AOL for OVER 1 year (open ticket 07256897). I have continually had every problem you can imagine. Slow email sending, cannot open mail, try again, email crashes. Template issues, etc, etc. Each time I call tech support, I must wait a minimum or 10-15 minutes, go through a lengthy id process, wheras I need a text sent to my phone with a code. THEN, I need to explain my TECH PROBLEM to billing, so they can then transfer me to tech support, who has another wait. If they cannnot resolve the problem, they will say, are…

  15. Lawsuit pending unless AOL stops screwing around with my system

    I have previously complained that I do not want auto-updates for Desktop Gold. In addition, I never authorized AOL to make changes to my Internet options. With each update Desktop Gold is made the default search provider. If these activities are not stopped immediately, I will have choice but to proceed with the lawsuit, and seek maximum damages under the law. The ball is in your court, don't ***** up.

  17. I see I have most AOL customers in the same boat I am in with AOL Gold. I have been with AOL since 1998 & gone through all the changes & up

    To try again...I see I have the majority of AOL members thinking the same thing I do about AOL Gold...it is the worse program change I have used since my joining in1998. We don't need an inbox...it is useless & confusing. I maintain data bases of over 500+ names each. I had them all organized in my address book in groups that related to the subject matter. You destroyed my work by listing everything together in an A to Z listing. It has taken me days to reorganize them & you refreshed my book today & found invalid emails that…

  18. Three ways Gold version is harder and longer to use than v9.8

    VersionGold is harder to use, requiring more clicks to do the same things as in V9.8. For instance, 1) V9.8 would automatically add an email address to SEND field by just entering three letters into the SEND field. Gold gives me my address book menu to choose from - slower and harder. 2)To add a link to email text, I first have to put the web address into a separate form, click OK, then copy and paste it into text, unlike v9.8 where I just had to copy and paste into text. 3) Also and most irritiating, v9.8 would automatically…
