I have just tried to enter the chat, and it's not working for me. Has this problem not yet been resolved? Is there, perhaps, a problem with my account?

Welcome from very close by! PM me if you want to know which city/town I live in.
apparently it's Lowell

I'm hoping to launch chat publicly by Saturday and all will be welcome, if only as a backup (fingers crossed the official chat returns because that is preferred). The reason I haven't really posted the link now is because there's no registration system and I have no way of knowing who is who without checking IPs, which makes any moderation impossible- especially if somebody logs in pretending to be somebody else. That should be ready to go here soon and it'll be welcome to all.

Unless you log in as (corco), in which case the host becomes easily confused and must repeatedly ban you.

I've watched several people try to come in so far, and get booted again. They're able to leave one line of text at most. Recommend waiting...

So far, we have 4 people in chat, and one who was getting booted is now in there with us. I think it's resolving.

If you're still unable to get into chat (most people seem to be able to, now), try a DNS flush. It may work to manually set DNS to 8.8.8.8 for the time being (I'm told this is a Google DNS that will work).

& set your 'alt' DNS to 8.8.4.4, which is also a Google DNS.

These are the ones I'm using, and having no issues getting into the chat.

And if you object to having both set to Google servers, 1.1.1.1 is another, non-Google alternative.

It was fixed earlier, but beware of trouble coming when we're forced to update to SMF 7.2.

I thought that had been done already? I guess not.
