      I just subscribed to AOL desktop gold just to find out the buddy list is gone IM’s are gone? what the **** am I paying for? the welcome screen that is completely useless? I’m canceling my subscription right now. What a huge disappointment.

      Please bring back the BUDDY LIST and IM's!!!
      AOL is worthless without it.. I can use any other email service if I want just normal email..
      I also hate that you made us upgrade to GOLD! it is absolutely awful.. let me go back to Aol 9.7

      My comment was deleted, but I'll gladly add it here. AOL Desktop is worthless without the buddy list and AIM. You can go on Chrome and Firefox to surf the web. AIM is what made the client complete. I just don't understand WHY we are continuing beta testing something that is going downhill since AIM is no longer functional and was a big part of the AOL Client.

      Sending photos inside email was simple, you clicked a button if you wanted the photo to be automatically resized just to send to look at or let it the original size. That's it, simple.

      Aol used to be "THE THING" and has gone down hill terribly. You've stripped Aol of what made it great, and you expect people to pay for this?

      Well,seen AIM has been Sunset and will not bring back.I am waiting for the team plan on offering an expanded list of emoticons.

      Inside AOL Email, We could size the photos, choose placement within the email, choose options to label the picture next to, above or below the picture. One could open pictures in AOL SW and they would load inside the email

      Taking away our buddy list has cut us off from friends we have known for decades here on AOL. It makes chat rooms useless. Sometimes one would save the IM and put it into a friend's folder for later reference. I have friends overseas with whom I have always chatted on AOL. Now it is more difficult to find each other to talk. And it can't be saved for reference.

      One wonders how anyone could buy the system and have so little idea about critical nature of the buddy list and Instant message to the value of using AOL.

      The system, as it was built, was unrivaled in the industry. You have destroyed it.
