    Am I alone in this? The flashchat page only loads "Having trouble? Try HTML 5."

    Which says the page is unavailable.

    Yeah guys, sorry, I contacted Matt earlier. Chat's been down since 1pm central today.

    This is frustrating. I'll see what I can do, but Farcaster is the guy with the server access. I have been trying to fix it on my end, but I figured I would respond to you now while I remembered.

    I reached out to Farcaster yesterday. I apologize for the downtime. It's just as frustrating for me. I hope to have a fix shortly.

    I'd like to take this opportunity to say I think this would be a good time to reconsider and change the criteria of any possibly future "cons" (if those are even still something desired) being required to be on any one site or format.

    Really it's just the "put all your eggs in one basket" scenario, whether it's "all games have to take place in chat on PPG" or whatever else - if that chosen platform goes down, everything is 100% torpedoed. If the GMs/players can choose their own format (maptool, fantasy grounds, roll20, Openrpg, etc.), then only individual platforms that go down are an issue, and even those games can be salvaged if the GM has prepared a backup plan for a second platform to go to, in advance.

    This doesn't stop PPG from being the central hub and player/gm -finder and main connection or "parent" of the games, it just allows more freedom for people to be more comfortable if they prefer other platforms or need more features.

    Sucks, but I'm glad it's not an issue on my end.

    Unless this is all some elaborate ruse put on by you, the most cowardly of rogues. Or the most roguish of cowards... I can't tell sometimes.

    Chat appears to be broken right now in the same way as described in post #1 on this thread. I didn't see any activity in chat yesterday, which I thought was odd, so it may have been broken for at least a day now.

    Yeah, I'm not sure what keeps knocking it offline. I'll speak with Farcaster and see if we can dig through mountains of logs on the server.
