    I remember it being really lively back when the new forums started up in 06'.

    I couldn't even tell you why it died down but we really should have the ability to chat on site with one another.

    FEAR IS THE OLDEST TOOL OF POWER. IF WE ARE DISTRACTED BY THE FEAR OF THOSE AROUND US THEN IT KEEPS US FROM SEEING THE ACTIONS OF THOSE ABOVE US.

    "All i care about is money and the city that I'm from, imma sip until I feel it, Imma smoke it till' it's done, I don't really give fuck and my excuse is that I'm young,and I'm only getting older, sombody shoulda told ya, I'm on one !"

    Its a coincidence you should bring this up tonight, the old chat room is not compatible with this version of vBulletin but i am looking at other chat solutions. The most realistic looking option at the moment is a integrated IRC room though.

    I won't say I was a huge fan of the old room anyway. It had a tendency to be possessed and spend nights kicking folk out more than allowing them to chat. Appreciate your efforts, Andy. Hope you find something that fits the site's needs soon, but I'm glad you aren't settling for just anything.

    *SHHHH!!!* Not so loud! Andy's avatar will HEAR you!



    D'OH! Too late!

    Seriously, I remember those days...fondly...? It would be nice to have back, Some nights the shoutbox is turing into a chatroom anymore. So my thanks to Andy too.

    I just found this link to the old chatroom tonight: CHATROOM. It was working ok. After reading this thread I'm assuming the issue is intergrating it w/ the current forum software?

    I just logged into that room and it seemed to be working normally.

    worked for me earlier, too. we need to address this, as there's been a few handfuls of times the lack of a chatroom has been mentioned in the shoutbox...

    It doesn't really take you to the HPotD chatroom. It takes you to a sort of limbo-chat with the title/subject line "NONE".

    I was trying to get it working a while ago but gave up on it, its partially integrated, like it can pull member details if you log in but it cant remember you and it dosnt recognise or save any settings (including the HPotD room and layout).
