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.
