You need 10 posts to get into chat. I am using google chrome and am able to access chat just fine. If you could, post your computer specs, such as what OS are you using? (Windows, Linux, Apple, etc.... Windows xp, vista, 7, etc) What browser? (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, etc). Do you have a 32 bit or 64 bit operating system? Are you running any anti-virus software, if so what brands (Avast, norton, spyblocker, etc)
I am available for other chat methods for quasi-tech support, aim, skype, (facebook If I HAVE to), whatever you use for social networking. etc... someone more technically minded should probably assume this role, hahaedit on 24-9-2011 by IntegratedInstigator because: stupid spelling error
[sic] I meet the post reqs. As far as my specs go, (am geeky) I run XP and Mint 8 linux in dual boot. I have as browsers FF 6, IE, Chrome, Safari and Opera in XP, and FF 3, IE and Opera in Linux. I have checked anything pertinent as far as flash, java, popups, firewalls, and I don't run any AV software (viruses are a hobby of mine, I like to catch them for the zoo). I am 32-bit, 1.6 ghz, 1 gb ram, and have all the latest updates for all my hardware. Everything, and I mean everything else, works fine, youtube, blah-blah, no other problems with anything anywhere, except this GD ATS chat thing. I've looked at the source given in the popup, can see the icon tables, and get the text box, but everything else remains grey. I refresh and wait. Wash, rinse, repeat. I watch network activity, and it fades away for that particular popup. It simply doesn't work.
Ok, I am done ranting. I use Pidgin to chat. I'll boot it up if ANYONE wants to help me, u2u for required info.
I really, really want to join the Enigma chat, but can't. I have been pulling hair for three days now. I'm gonna start a new thread in Board Business & Questions, so let's take this conversation over there and post accordingly. Thanks to everyone who has addressed my chat issues. I appreciate it, but let's get back to the real purpose of this thread......
ETA: Here's the LINK.edit on 9/24/11 by Druid42 because: added link
