    Hopefully Farcaster or one of the moderators can get the chat room to work again. In the meantime, if anyone needs a temporary chat room to hang out in then just click on the following link - http://www.playbyaction.com/chat . It is by far nothing compared to the pen and paper site chat room, but it is a short term solution for anyone that needs a chat room temporarily.

    PPG Chat went down I think around Wed or so. It has done it before, and just popped back up without anyone doing anything (so it was probably due to the server's networking protocol at that time and not PPG), so I expected it to do that, but it looks like PPG's chat parser needs restarted or something, which only the administrator Farcaster can do from his authority level. I emailed him but it has been the weekend and I believe he was off at college or something so we'll hope he'll check his email or the site now the weekend is over. Sorry for the inconvenience to everyone, and thanks to Mora for his invitation also, very kind. -JP

    Was about to post in the suggestion area that someone fix the chatroom to be a smart ass. But there's already a thread about it.

    Not that these see a lot of attention...

    Farcaster has had a number of projects and other obligations of late that have been monopolizing his time, but he has always been an attentive and active administrator and site owner when he has had the time, getting member feedback, implementing changes, adding features, etc. that have been posted in the feedback section, and even when mentioned in chat. Let's hope he's able to take care of some of his most pressing duties and other parts of his life smooth out for him so he can return soon!

    I'm not trying to call him out. I'm saying the forums aren't exactly vibrant with life. I know he's busy, and he does what he can with what he has.

    Two different alternate chats and even an endorsement by one of the submitters for the other. Now THAT is community spirit, everyone, and I'd like to thank, as much as I'm able from my semi-staff status here on PPG, both Morashitar and Pruttm for their invitation and desire to provide an alternate live forum for the community here that they know enjoys and makes use of chat for various reasons! =)

    I've logged in, though too late to see anybody (curse my sleeping schedule) and that chat at BlessedMachine looks cool and I see a lot of PPG names there, so there is definitely a solid core of the members that are deciding to check it out! You can use your Facebook or Twitter login or sign up at Chatroll, which is what the BlessedMachine chat uses for its room (I chose the latter).

    I have set up an IRC chatroom hosted on PPG member Lazarus' site, as an alternate with easy to follow instructions - everything is on this page:

    Thank you for notifying Farcaster concerning the loss of Chat functionality at this site, JPatterson. Have you received a response yet, and if so, is there an estimate as to when this issue may be resolved?

    Considering his last activity was over a month ago according to his profile, I'd wager he's got no response yet. Unless he went with e-mail.

    I have sent Farcaster a contact mentioning the chat to every email or other PM I've been able to find here or elsewhere, so when he is able to reply, I am confident he will be informed of the goings-on here, and will reply or fix things, when he is able. That's about all I can say with any certainty.

    Well not a single soul visited my chat room! It must be that bad to look at! ha ha!

    I do wonder where everyone is hanging out at, as I did visit both jpats/Laz's chat room and Pete's chat room. Nothing either, unless I come on at unusual times as usual!

    Anyway someone with big PR skills should get us all to meet somewhere.

    I've been on vacation. But I have been thinking of chatzy which is just a basic chat room maker where you can invite whomever or just post the link somewhere and let people come. If someone wanted to make one they could. (I would, but vacation, and I think I'm with Mora on the "Unusual Time" problem.)

    It's got basic dice rolling and such. I've used it to host some simple RPGs before. Not a bad place to hang out. A little slow sometimes, but nothing is ever perfect.
