    Never been on the Chat thing. A week ago I decided to give it a look. Couldn't get in because it requires "Java". I downloaded Jave and installed it. Yep, java works. I still can't get in. If there is 7 people or 3 or none, all I get is - sorry cannot connect to server try again later.

    Later and later - still can't get in. Is there something I am missing here? Is there a secret handshake or something?

    I'm not afraid to look stupid so tell me what I missed. Please.

    .....If it helps you any, I had similar problems recently, (being booted from chat & other websites etc.) & didn't know what to do. So I went into my settings & re-activated my FIREWALL......problems reduced by 90%.

    Like I said, hope this helps. :wink:

    Only thing I can think of check and make sure you got the most current java update and check your security settings in your browser and make sure it is not blocking you and check your firewall if you have one.

    I click on "chat room".
    I click on "Enter chat room"
    The java cup comes up with the display running around it.

    Up pops "connecting"

    Then my username comes on and below it it says
    Error connecting to server. Try again in a few minutes

    I even tried it with my firewall and security turned all the way off. Still didn't work.

    I made catfish 1 a "trusted site"

    I cussed at the screen.

    Any other ideas?

    I hate you are havin so much trouble tryin to come hang in chat with us. Thats a shame. Lots of good times in there to be had.
    I'm gonna agree with alot of what is said.....
    Java 6 update, Mark as secured site, undo the popup blocker, lower the firewall, etc.
    But, I do want to make a suggestion on those newbies tryin to come into chat that most dont know.

    If you enter chat using the (float) mode, then your chatroom will be undocked, thus its movable and you can still view the board,forum, w/e you wanna call it at the same time as being in chatroom w/o havin to leave chat to do it.

    Just a helpful tip for those that want it.:wink:
