Chat feature

So it's great to see that Darrel finally got the chat button to work. However, I never see anyone there. So today, just this minute, as I was signed in to the site, I tried to use Chat.... and I get this:
You are not authorized to access this page.
So what gives? Why am I being locked out? What did I do wrong here? I hardly say anything at all... and that's too much??

I'm glad it's not just me....
I've had the same message a few times now, and once or twice before I have actually been chatting!

Someone told me that it might be Explorer that causes the problem. Try going on with Firefox.

I'm having the same problem in Firefox.

Funny that we all check it out but when it does work nobody's there? Anyhow it must be a temporary thing because I also can no longer access it.

Same here..............

The Chat Nazi said "Access Denied" chat for you!

I, too, have been having that issue.

Whenever I log in, I go to see if anyone is on...might wish to say hello or something, but, today, I'm in the same boat with the rest of everyone else.



It's a relief to know that this ban does not only extend to Brits...!

I'm not having any trouble accessing the chat feature. I typically use Safari or Firefox.

For those who are getting an "Access Denied" message, can you send me a screenshot to help me determine whether it's MWK or Meebo that's denying access to it.

You can also access it directly from this URL:

I am using Firefox. It used to work... but not now. Still get Access denied. That link you provided opens the meebo in another window, but it's a very very old one... text has been updated since then. I don't believe it is current... so you can't chat with anyone from the past!
Can't you get this thing to work? Did you pay for this window?
