Chatrooms

The one linked in the forum toolbar requires a Java 1.1.x enabled browser.

The one linked on the homepage returns a "not found" error.

Java 1.1.x  :o well that's only 20 some odd years ago. 1996 1997?

probably for the best. the state of old AF java is skeeeeetchy! (and full of security holes)

lots of free HTML5 IRC clients you can use. perhaps an upgrade of the chat is in order.

does anybody use chat? I know I never did.

Can we not just have a pop up chat?
Might actually get used then?

Agreed about nuking the chatroom linked on the toolbar.

Might be good to keep the one linked on the homepage if it doesn't have similar security issues.
- You keep all of the other old stuff on the homepage.   :P   :lol
- This chatroom has come in handy a few times and was still working as of a few days ago.
- If you keep it, please change the toolbar chatroom link to point to this one.

I miss chat.  That used to be the most lively part of the site back in the day.

That would be cool -- what about a slack channel?  I believe that can be embedded on a webpage pretty easily.

Shouldn’t there be a two week poll so randos can voice their concern about adding a feature people clearly want??
