Well I have asked repeatedly for help to access chat on ATS, and to no avail. So I thought I would go straight to ATS. I haven't been able to access ATS chat EVER! I have gotten to the screen to accept the T&C, but it goes dark after that and nothing. SO if someone could take the time to help me with this problem it would be much appreciated.

Peace, NRE.

With me, it's dark for a few moments then I'm in. I think you have to let it load.

Hey NRE!

What browser are you using?

Do we tell her about the 12 to 1 vote against her to have access to chat?

Oh well



It may be your browser. I had issues with google chrome, but it seems to have come good now. All I did was clear the cache and then it worked perfectly.

OK! Now that I am completely fustrated this is what Ive done so far.

I went to my other name on my computer. Switched from Firfox to IE 8. Took off all blocks, and cleared the cache, restarted the computer, and was able to get to the chat screen.

Thennnn..... there was an error message that read.

Permission denied

atschat.php.

Code:0

URI:http//www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/chatclient.php

I was able to get a darker portion of the screen I guess where I would be able to type, but thats all I got. This is really fustrating. Also, I let the screen load for 5 min + and still nothing.

Please, if anyone can help me figure this out I would greatly appreciate it. Ive done all I can at this point.

Thanks in advance, NRE.

Can you get into chat as a "chat voyeur"?

It is an option on the right side of the screen in threds.

You might want to send the error message to SO to see if he has an answer to it ... or better yet send it in as a complaint/suggestion form and see if any of the staff might be able to help.

ETA: If you have already done the above and got no remedy then I really don't know how to fix it. I think I heard that Chat is the only ATS area that uses Flash ... maybe it has something to do with that. *shrug*

I wish I could help. I've also asked.
What you get, is exactly the same thing for me. I've tried both google chrome and firefox. I've tried clearing all history, cookies, unblocked my firewall, allowed all popups, etc.
Nothing made any difference.
I've waited for chat to load. Nothing.
I don't even get an error message. Just a blank screen.
I guess this proves that I'm not the only one that can't get in.

Peace, NRE.

Thanx.
My computer is less than a year old too, so it does everything else I've wanted it to do. After everything I've tried, it's hard to believe it isn't a glitch in our profiles or something.

I'm no expert but a few suggestions:

- Chat runs flash, so try updating flash to the latest version.

- Your PC maybe blocking may be blocking outgoing messages. This might be your firewall, or an application such as Little Snitch.

- You may have installed a flash blocker plugin in your browser, such as ClickToFlash.

- Your router might be blocking the port your PC is using.

Did that again. All upgraded.

- Your PC maybe blocking may be blocking outgoing messages. This might be your firewall, or an application such as Little Snitch.

I have a messenger, and have chatted at another conspiracy site with no problems.

- You may have installed a flash blocker plugin in your browser, such as ClickToFlash.

Something else I have on here works with flash, it works fine. Disabled most of the privacy settings, pop ups allowed.

- Your router might be blocking the port your PC is using.

not sure what that means, but it doesn't block anything or anyone else. I also cleared the cache again. It sure slows down the loading of new pages.

Grey screen, sitting there for about 10 minutes now. Nothing happening.

I still haven't heard anything back, and Ive tried all the suggestions so far. If I were a less patient person, I would have thrown my laptop out the window a while ago. I figure a nice cold one will chill me out until I cant take it anymore, or I get sleepy.


Peace, NRE.

Don't know if you got this working yet or not, but make sure you're using the most current versions of BOTH Flash and Java. My guess is your problem is you don't have the most current version of Java installed on your system.

What is Java?

Try Google chrome. I mostly use firefox, but chat never loads on there. Apprently due to a plug in.

But asoon as log on with google it works.

Give that a go. Might work for you.
