Changes Coming To Chat

The use of the mobile chat client for the chatroom will require chatroom registration. This registration is separate from the site registration (by design) and can be done here:

Chat Registration

Without having a registered name, you will receive an error when trying to access the mobile chat client. If you use a registered name, you will be prompted for the password before joining chat.

The same link can be used to reset your password if needed. Keep in mind that if you try to register a name that is somewhat common, it may have already been registered or you may have previously registered it and have forgotten your password. If password reset doesn’t work, it may have been registered by someone else and you’ll need to choose another.

This change is part of my commitment to keeping the chat experience as genuine and valid as possible and will be a test which may precipitate other changes.
