I used to use some sites like ydetector.com and invisible-scanner.com to check if my sister is online because I don't like to drop her a ton of offline messages. But is seems that none of these sites working. Does anybody know one that working ?

I'm using Yahoo Status Check. It also tells you if the user is invisible or just offline.

There is Status Detect and it’s working at the moment (16/12/2012).

And yes, both are working at the moment of this answer.

I don't see they're working. I told my friend to be invisible but they both returned the results as offline. – JatSing Aug 3 '11 at 4:10
@user458773 Yahoo Status Check is using imvisible.info so you might want to check that service as well. I was always able to see when a user is invisible and when online. – Alex Aug 6 '11 at 8:09
imvisible.info doesn't work either. I checked my own ID when I was invisible but it did show my ID as offline. – JatSing Aug 7 '11 at 10:56
@user458773 Yahoo Status Check works just fine for me. Check the image I've added to my answer. – Alex Aug 7 '11 at 11:52
Strange ! Just checked it again already and still didn't work for me. – JatSing Aug 9 '11 at 14:08
