This is so weird :angry: I can't change my MSN Messenger Display Name. It would just say:

Your display name could not be changed, please try again later.

I've tried reinstalling, tried MSN 7, 6.2, tried almost everything. I changed it in MSN Web Messenger but then it went back to the same when I logged in with 6.2. I've tried restarting my computer too, tried various names and it still won't work.

What is wrong?

The server has issues every now and then. It'll be fixed soon, just wait it out.
