    Besides JAVA, you also need Flash media player in order to log into chat.

    Arg, I got 'Flash Media Player' and it STILL wont let me in, and still tells me I need JAVA.
    Some days it's not even worth chewing through the restraints.

    Then check your security settings. Something is blocking chat still and I suspect your browser and JAVA security settings have gotten changed. Also, if you've allowed your browser to update, I've heard it denies JAVA, at least that's what I've heard about FireFox. If you are running a windows machine, try using IE as I've heard it still allows or uses JAVA.

    The way you describe this happening makes me think you updated your browser, or you allowed auto-update to update it. I've heard the new updated browsers, especially FireFox, will not let java work. Try using IE if you are on a windows machine, the last I heard it still works with java.

    >> Try using IE if you are on a windows machine

    Internet Explorer?

    An alternative to Exploder would be to wait a few days to see how the non-Java chat that VerticalScope is working on getting functional works without reverting to desperate measures.

    a Shout Box is not the same as chat.

    Java and Flash in a browser is a freaking nightmare, those really shouldnt be enabled on anyone's browsers. Flash needs to just die, java needs to go back to what it is decent at, cross platform applications (not web applets).

    Hey guys,

    We're currently looking into installing the shoutbox which should solve this problem. We'll update you when we know more.

    Literally anything is better than what we have currently which probably keeps 90% of the people off chat. Trying to connect is a nightmare. So if shoutbox is a temporary option, I'm all for it.

    Hello,

    So I looked into the ticket and it was bumped on 10/19, still waiting for a response for the tech team to implement it.
    Please be patient with us, we will get this resolved.

    Best regards,

    Ed

    Thanks for your patience everyone. We think that we have found a compatible chat option but we are still testing out its configuration.

    Cheers,

    hopefully its NOT a shoutbox...

    something as close to, if not the same as, the original chat is preferred by ALL...

    Thanks for the feedback. We're still tweaking the settings but should have it up and running soon.

    Apologies for the delay folks. Looks like the chatbox was ready, but was not turned on (go figure), so I have gone ahead and turned it on. Please let us know if you have any issues.

    Cheers,
