I’ve seen one other user with this problem, and it wasn’t resolved. I don’t have any idea what’s stopping me, but I can’t connect to the chat (which means I can’t really do anything, of course).
I’ve tried with my firewall disabled entirely, to no avail. This site seems fantastic and I’d love to take part in everything, but I don’t know what’s going on here. :(
Do you get a disconnect message, or does it just not load?
That might help us figure out what’s going on. My first suggestion, without any other information, is that you may have an ad-blocker preventing chat from loading.
That and firewalls are the most common trouble makers.
Thanks for the reply!
It’s not connecting, the applet loads fine. “A connection to the chat servers could not be established.” “Retrying…”
My firewall doesn’t seem to be the problem, unless some kind of external firewall in my apartment complex is restricting me, though I don’t see why..
What kind of ad-blocker could do it? I’ve tried both Firefox and IE.
