Did anyone else have trouble with chat last night (Sunday) - I managed to log in and type about 3 words before the whole thing froze on me and wouldn't let me back in....so I gave up and went to bed....grrrr...

Oh well, I'll try again someday!!

Until later

It kept on happening to me too!
Every 5 mins or so kept on getting booted out! Either that or someone was trying to tell me something :)

G-XX Finals and ...hopefully land! :)

lol I've grown used to it - it happens to me virtually every 5 minutes and frequently amounts to about 20 disconnections in about 1.5 hours!

i can't get in right now. i just get the delightful:
Please be patient as the room loads... http://www.pprune.org/ubb/NonCGI/frown.gif

What can I say, I have all of the above reguarly. Chat sux. http://www.pprune.org/ubb/NonCGI/frown.gif

I'm not a PPRuNe addict. (just need one more post)

Same here. If I was lucky I would get as far as saying hello, then unable to do anything further. Lately, have given up trying.

Please guys, could you email Danny with what is happening ie problem and time / date - how can we put it right if the problems are not known. We may well be able to get this solved then.

Digichat need to be aware of how the chat room is behaving and why some people suffer and not others. Especially as we now pay for this.

I am not experiencing too many difficulties currently, but it occasionally freezes on me and x number others.

I had similar problems until, a month ago, I changed from Netscape to Internet Explorer. Since then, no sweat.

Anyone ever experienced the following?

Applet started allright, I can change settings and things, but the message screen remains totally blank. - Did anyone receive weird sentences from me between 23 and 24 UTC?

Then ********-********* Windows finally crashed, and I can't get back in, because the server thinks I'm still chatting. Does chat have some kind of auto log-off feature after a certain idle time?

Thanks in advance.

Don't know about that Winston - but the screen was completely blank, without any names or text. No matter how many times logged in unable to see anyone.

Having all the above problems on very regular basis - two or more times a week - have IE 5.5, all the updates and java add-ons to W98 etc. etc.

I tried to log in to 'Chat' recently, but my computer never brought up the 'Chat' screen, whatever it's like.

I'm looking forward to seeing you all in there in the future! (As soon as it's working)

Hope it gets fixed fairly soon

hey so Im not the only one, Feeton Terrafirma suggested a few this but I am still chatless and gave up. Even the powers tried to help and digichat claimed to have no juristiction over the technical troubles of PPrune. DIGICHAT **** http://www.pprune.org/ubb/NonCGI/frown.gif :mad:

Oh yes, Iceolareanic, it would really be great to meet you in chat! Than you won't be able to dodge our questions concerning your strange moniker any longer!

Well this evening, Tue 26th 1800Z, chat is not loading properly - tried three times and all I get is the Chat screen with adverts but no text, no icons, no nothing...it has been problematic all day slow to load etc.

The reliability appears to be deteriorating fast!

Was this after or before you came in to say you've got 4 weeks holiday?? :)

Seemed to be working fine for me when I tried it earlier on!

Le Pen while Multiple Personality Disorder seems to be a common phenomenon on pprune :) you must be the first sufferer who has 1 name for aaaaaaaaaaaall his personalities! ;)

All the chat-complaints mentioned on this thread happen to me regularly as well, with the last week being particularly http://www.pprune.org/ubb/NonCGI/frown.gif http://www.pprune.org/ubb/NonCGI/frown.gif
Can be [email protected] irritating, yes!

Especially since a goodly sum of money was raised from contributions made by regular chatters to pay Digichat for the new chat room without it affecting the finances of the rest of the site.
It seems to me that the "chat-fund" is not getting value for it's money. :mad:

At the same time I have had over a year of fun, warmth, support, bull***** , surrealism, flirting, drinking, entertainament, information and generally a very good time for only 10!! http://www.pprune.org/ubb/NonCGI/eek.gif :)

The deal of a lifetime, if u ask me!!
