creating aim chatroom using pidgin


The title says it all.

Does anybody know how I can create a chatroom using the AOL IM protocol? (not join an exisiting one)

Is this even possible with pidgin? (the normal windows client software can do it).

thank you. -lamb

Just go to Buddies --> Add a Chat. Then click on the new chatroom to open it, and go to Conversation --> Invite to invite others. All done.

You're supposed to add the chat. Just enter some name, then join it when it is in your buddy list and the AIM protocol will create a new chatroom automatically if the name doesn't exist yet.
