For the past week or so I've been unable to send or recieve chat invites through AOL Instant Messenger. I thought it was just a temporary problem at first, but now that it's been going on for a week I'm starting to think it's going to stay like this. I host nightly AIM chats for my friends and I to get together and talk, so it's a pretty big problem that I'm now suddenly unable to create or join any chat rooms.
When I try to send a chat invitation to someone, I get this error message:

Sorry, AIM could not join room "X".
Please try again later.

And when someone else tries to send me a chat invitation, I get this error message:

Could not get information on chat room sent by inviter 'X'.
Please ask the inviter to try again later.

I tried downloading a newer version of AIM (I've purposely been using an older version: Version 5.2.3292) but the same thing happened. I tried completely uninstalling AIM and then reinstalling it, but no luck there either. I've tried using several different screen names, also all to the same result. Anyway, if anyone could help me with this, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
