I have just finished installing an enhanced version of the chat room that will require an active member account here on the forums to login. Previously it just asked you to type your name in and we had problems with people logging in as others and causing problems.
I am waiting for a confirmation code fromt he chat room vendor for our upgraded account and will get the chat room opened ASAP. I am hoping to have the new chat room open for this evenings chat in the next few mintutes.
Also please note there is a new drop down menu to show you who is currently chatting (updates every minute) and also a new link from the top (in case you had it bookmarked), here si the new link:
