After several years of using the same chatroom, we've decided to experiment with using a new one. Some of its features include:
  • It works in Google Chrome
  • It doesn't issue any warnings like our old one did
  • Logging in is much faster
  • We can create multiple rooms! For starters, we have a standard chat room, and one for Word Wars.
  • Super Moderators can kick troublesome users (if necessary).
You'll find the new chat where the old one was, with the same popup window option and a way to view who's currently in the chat.

If this one works for enough users, and enough people like it, we'll keep it for good!

Enter the Chat

Yeah, seriously I thank you so much!

Before I couldn't even use it, because my computer wouldn't support the Java Download.

Just checked out the chatroom Andy. It's really nice, a lot sleeker. Kinda like IRC chat now. (Is it IRC?)

It's not IRC. However all the data is managed by YWO now instead of a third-party service, which gives us more control and flexibility.
