How come PF Chat isn't on all the time? I come into the website and it says PF Chat now open and then I come in later and it is not there. Is there a special time for it to be open?

Physics Forums is a forum based environment and we have good reasons for keeping it that way. The chat is to be thought of as a weekly special event. Cristo has the times. However many times it runs 30-60min later.

Yes, you can save the chat.

And also the chat room is for chatting. it's not the place to solve homework.

The White Zone is for loading and unloading only!

Movie references aside, there is a really good reason why we don't give homework help in chat. Homework help should be preserved so that other students can benefit and learn from the Q&A. Chat is kind of free-wheeling and free-form. Greg is nice enough to provide it as a socializing resource, and we should be glad to have it ... just for fun. Thanks, Greg!
