Hey im new here, and this just as well could be a problem with my own computer. The chatroom window appears for me but then says at the bottom of a small grey window that should be the chatroomwindow "Load: Class client not found". I noticed that no one is in the chatroom as well, so is this becuase its down or just because no one is in it...or is it my comp and i need to download something ? (Im well aware of what this site is about, and am sorry if im wasting time by posting this. I would rather have informed an administrator directly but am unaware how to do so, and i also checked the FAQ.)
This really should have been posted in the "Bugs and Site Suggestions" thread.
But you may need to update your Java. What browser are you using? Members here use IE7, Firefox and I myself use Opera. There were a few kinks that needed to be worked out a while back, but the chat seems to be working fine now.
No one can stay in the chatroom for long, mainly because it times out after less than 5 minutes of inactivity. People mostly pop in to see what's going on, and leave if no one is there.
I tried to log into the chat room a couple of times but each time I tried my computer would freeze up. Then I had to reboot my computer and wait till it uploaded everything which took forever, so I choose not to try to log back into the chat room just in case it tries to freeze up again.
