I'll let you guys know when it's back up.

Okay, I got an answer, and it's not good.

Our IP.Chat application was discontinued last year, unfortunately. On May 1st of this year the service was shut off.

So yeah, we don't have a chat room. There are a few third party chats that we could look into, but they might be more trouble than they're worth.

This is terrible news! That chat room has been a real lifeline for me many times in the past 10 years.

I understand the board administration wanting to avoid going to more trouble than it would be worth to get a new chat room going, but if there's anything that I, an interested user, could do towards that, I'd be happy to volunteer.

There are a few out there that we'll look into. As long as they're not too expensive and can integrate seamlessly with the board then we'll strongly consider it. We've always had a chat room and it feels weird to not have one.

Oh my, well let us know what u decide.

Weigh out the pros and cons of each.

Tbh, it is weird without one.

Was there an explanation for why it was shut off?

I find it odd that a feature that must be popular on many fora - I know it was here for many members - was discontinued.

I forged many important friendships in that chat room, had some great discussions, and had many stupid good times as well.  Just because one doesn't do something every single day doesn't mean it isn't valuable.  I will tremendously miss chatting here if it is gone forever.

Same here.  I had some rather great fun getting to know a number of forum members in chat, and will always look back fondly on the good times.  

Thank you, 73, for looking into possible alternatives for us!

I've never been into the chat room. This is the only forum that I've ever been on that has one. But doesn't surprise me that it's mostly young people in there.

Well it´s not a fact. 57 is not old these days. People can be over 100 now. And also it´s not very nice to call someone old. Have your parents not taught you any manners?

And also I prefer woman at that age before people around my age. :drool:
