PF Chat is Back!

  1. Sep 30, 2014 #1
    Great news! PF Chat will return this coming Sunday Oct 5th! We'll kick things off with a all access chat for a full week. After that it will be for Gold members only, but we'll have our usual all access Sunday Chat Events.

    Below is a preview showcasing some features. There is an option for pop out which can go full width.

    To access the chat on sunday there will be a link in the header navigation between Forums and Members. There will also be a widget on the right homepage sidebar.

    This thread's title is a lie. The chat is not back yet, it'll be back soon =((

    I'm excited for a chance to learn chat!

    (I didn't take the opportunity before. Reading posts just before the migration about rescuing a Jetsons theme and sounds, I missed out on something way cool.)

    I'm new here so this chat feature is new to me, but none the less I am excited!

    P.S. to anyone questioning the veracity of the title of this thread: you have to be pretty narrow minded to call it a lie. In fact, the philosophy behind Heisenberg's uncertainty principle allowed for complete truthfulness; and error in uncertainty allows it!

    The chat seems to be always empty nowadays ://.. I think people don't like the current chat, hence none joins.

    @Greg Bernhardt, is it not possible to have an IRC channel instead? Mentors would be admins of said channel (@) and gold members could have voice (+). That way, it could be open to the entire community and gold members would have a reason to buy gold.

    If you don't want the chat to steal content from the forums, then you could ban lengthy Physics/Math/W/E related questions/discussions there.

    I'm always a fan of an IRC channel.

    This will be the last week all members will be able to use the chat 24/7. Starting next week it will be reserved for gold members. Then our usual Sunday chat events for everyone will be active.

    I would be more excited if I could type fast enough to keep up with the flow of conversations:(

    Chat is now disabled for normal users. Chat will be open to all on PF Chat Sundays like before. When the chat opens you will see a notice at the top of the site telling you so. If you want 24/7 chat access please upgrade your account here https://www.physicsforums.com/account/upgrades
