I have just spotted a rare phenomenon!

There are two people using the Chat room!
Only the 2nd time I've spotted anyone else in there.

I tried to go see what it was once. But as I was alone I couldn't very well chat with myself

How, by the way, did you spot this? I normally just open the chat, but there is almost never anyone there. (sniff)

Re: Flash Chat

Well, maybe now more people realize there IS a chat room?



And then she asks (stupidly): where is that chat room??

Well, you can find it under Community>>Live chat, or just click on:

https://www.englishforum.ch/chat/flashchat.php

Or you could open a new window and type the URL, letter by letter...

Try refreshing the page. Blue is correct, but my window hasn't gone "blingblingblingbling" and I don't see your name. (sorry if that was a bit technical)

Does it say "Welcome! You have entered [The Lounge] " somewhere?

I hope you haven't broken it.

It doesn´t, it probably doesn´t load fully. Maybe some blocker installed on my pc prohibits opening that page ?

When loading the chat system, after 25% or so it brings up that blue page

Probably could be a blocker, possibly a firewall, but as far as I remember flashchat just looks like normal webpage traffic, and it also doesn't need java or such.

What Browser are you using?

Chrome. Adblocker installed.

Tried Firefox, got to a screen that asked for user name and password and then the same blue screen

Check if your blocker is stopping javascript, or adobe flash.

Here is a site which checks for flash.

I do it all the time.

"Hey LIB, how's it going, looking good there buddy"

"Thanks, it's going, you know what they say, when the going gets tough, the tough..ah forget it. How's Lucy by the way?"

"Oh, she's fine, thank you for asking. She went up to Connecticut to see her mom, something about the results, you know how it goes."

"Yeah, well give her my regards and tell her that Linda is still talking about Turkey Marbella for Thanksgiving"

"Will certainly do bud, take care, see you at bowling on Thursday"

Not sure, the conversations do tend to drag on and get out of control at times.

On the Forum page under "currently active users" is "members currently using flashchat". There was your name and someone else.
