    The online chat is now officially all good to go. The problems people have experienced was due to the integration of the coding into the forum database, so member access is integrated directly with your existing data, no extra input.

    The system is currently only available to certain persons who have met certain criteria upon the forum, being a combination of days registered, posts and reputation score. If you don't meet these, then the system will not give you access. So basically, all angles are covered to ensure people are posting legitimately to get access to the chat system, and not merely relying on "x" number of posts, which could all be just BS to get access.

    Using days registered allows informed decisions to be made, and allows reputation to be passed positively or negatively if the user is posting honestly and not just trying some spammy nonsense to get access.

    The chat is heavily moderated, with over 10 moderators to kick or ban a user if they spam the chat, or abuse the chat.

    Ensure you read the [DLMURL="http://www.ptsdforum.org/thread1046.html"]chat rules[/DLMURL] if you have access, or else your chat lifespan will be very short.

    No, requests for access are a standing denied! The chat system is for those who define themselves as wanting to be part of the community, and not just for the world to abuse or use for personal chit chat with non PTSD related persons.

    Been trying to access chat. It let me in yesterday, but there was nobody home! Tried today but keep getting message "fatal error - could not connect to server". Is that a problem my end????? Normal forum stuff is accessible. Brain not up to thinking too much about technical stuff (not that this is anything unusual!).

    That error is out of my hands as the software is reliant upon a third party server at this stage until enough funds are sort to purchase the US$4500 software, upgrade the server and install it all so it is not reliant upon another third party. If you get it, just close it and go to login again...

    Just close it YA, then open it again. It would merely be a delay between your system and the flash media server needed to run the system. This is what getting the software and having it installed locally with the forum is about, as this one aspect of the entire PTSD Forum, is the only one that relies on a third party, and they are never reliable IMHO. Atleast if the board is down, so is the chat, and vice versa, never one or the other.

    Just checked it, and it seems to be working fine YA. It would be a system issue at your end in regard to allowing Flash objects, ie. not the latest version of Macromedia Flash Player, software firewall such as Norton, or browser settings, etc.
