this is just speculation, but part of the reason is probably due to a lot of browsers refusing to use java based things now, and the chat was java based

This is the most difficult situation to overcome. With Java 8.x (and most of 7.x, too) Java refuses to work in any environment other than "highly secure" or "omfg why is this so restrictive" mode, which presents issues. One is that the chat we used to use (for now at least) isn't automatically recognized as "safe" so even if we added it back, very few people would be able to use it. And the problem with newer, HTML5 based chats is that they don't integrate with vBulletin (for the most part); especially with 3.8.x.

But I promise you guys we are working on a solution to this. I know you all can't see the progress, but I can assure you something is actively in the works.

I don't know if you've seen this before but, IRC can be easily integrated into vBulletin. There is a plugin here and you could just make a channel on freenode.

I have returned!

I actually agree with northy IRC might be the best choice . I've missed talking to lots of old VT friends here :c

I'm not sure what the moderators would think of this, but we could make an unofficial VT IRC channel on Freenode as a temporary (maybe permanent seeing how long it is taking to fix the normal one) solution? Any takers?

We could just move to the official one once they got it working again. I'll have a look into getting one setup.

NB: Mods, if this goes against any rules, please say so.

There is currently a 'fake' chatroom in microcosm's diary (see my sig) who had a thread about having a seperate chatroom on a different website (now deleted)

The mods replied who said having a external chatroom is a no, it is too difficult to operate from a moderation point of view.

Just wait, it was being tested a few weeks ago, it should be ready soon.

Both statements are correct, yes.

Trust me - I know most everyone wants the chatroom back (myself included), but like @adventitious said...we have certain requirements that need to be met for moderation and safety purposes, so unfortunately we can't allow links to a chatroom that can't effectively be moderated by the VT Staff.

I'm positive that the VT chatroom will be back very soon.

Have you not just read what @Emerald Dream has written above, and indeed in the rest of the thread?
A external chatroom has been suggested before and not allowed by the admin
Putting the password on here allows anyone to access it, so that's not a good idea.
The old chatroom was only accessible to members, so they could check who is there. That's why we have the age 19 limit on here
By the way you're not a mod so I don't think they would be happy with you being the manager anyway, even if it was allowed.

Honestly, I don't know what I can say at this point, because everytime I think I have a time frame for something, I turn out to be wrong for some reason. However, I can confindentially state this: We purchased a chat. And we're working to get it set up, but it's not exactly as easy as cut+paste or something. Would I love it up tonight? Sure. Would I love it up a month ago? Absolutely. It will make its way up as soon as we get it situated. guaranteed.
