Attention Admins: Chat is Down?! (in General)
So far I have been unable to make chat work. The best I have been able to do is to get PMs to show up but no one is in chat so I cannot PM anyone. This is neither a one time occurrence nor only with me. In Verifexe's thread multiple CBers have reported that Chat is down.
So a question, is this unknown or is there something in the works to replace chat or get it fixed?

Same problem here!
I have Win7 and Chrome.
PM seems to work, but if you look at the bottom line when Chrome starts you see - very shortly - "Error" and more text which I was not able to memorize.
I believe it has to do with us having Java 7.17 (or such) and CB having 6.43 which seems to be the most up-to-date Java Version 6 according to Oracle.
I will now deinstall 7.x and install 6.x to verify if this is the case.

it doesnt matter if its Java 6.43 or 7.17.
I'm getting the same Error: Creating Socket - this time I was able to see a bit more of the error.
Same here with chrome and Firefox, load reload java etc... No success.
i havent been able to acces chat in 4 days or so

as part of an Windows-Update I installed IE-10 and tried again.
No Chat even with IE10
And if the Problem exists on several Computers it doesnt seem to be local anymore.
Time will tell
well maybe someone took a look to try and fix it only to make it worse? several of you already experience issues with the newest updates to your browsers only to revert.
time will tell

Just for the protocol: May I ask as to what you did to put it up again?
