    It works fine. If you have the Chatzilla plug-in for Firefox, just type irc://chat.psionics.net:6667/greytalk into your browser and it takes you there. That's the only IRC program I use anymore, but I assume others work just as well.

    No dice for me, though I think it's b/c I'm using a proxy.

    X gave me the URL for access using CGI, but that seems to be busted. I've not been able to get in #gt for a couple days :(

    All I get is a blank white page with text: "No input file specified."
    I didn't know I needed one. I didn't know I had one to start with, let alone specifying one.


    I can confirm a similar experience. I actually had time to attend the Greychat this week (the 29th) and could not get in using the link from the CF home page in the left hand column. So, I read a book.

    I just tried again and got a white page announcing, "This webpage cannot be found." Boccob needs to turn his eye toward a fix.

    Argh. You too GVD? Confused
    I'll try and tell Holian about it if I ever see him before next Thursday.
    You two don't use mIRC eh?

    Well I tried that link on the left and it 404'd me too. Then I backed out the cf.html part and it sent me to a list of channels on otherworlders site.
    Ours says: "The GreyTalk/CanonFire chat is located HERE, please update your bookmarks."
    Using that link it took me to a chat page that said "Grey Talk Chat
    We are testing out a new web chat. Please enter your name below."
    I got in greychat but its rather strange. I guess the server is tinkering around with a new java chat service thingee.

    In chatzilla, type:

    /attach thulcandra.otherworlders.org

    once it connects, type:

    /nick YourNickname

    yournickname being whatever you want, with no spaces, use underscores _

    then

    /join #greytalk

    that's it.

    If anyone has further connection problems, please AIM me (chatdemonrich) or MSN (chatdemon@hotmail.com) me and I'll try to help.

    The java link in the page margin works. I had to use it when I had problems with mIRC. Somehow I got those problems worked out though, so I switched back to mIRC.

    Well, for the second week in a row, none of the options posted here work for me.


    My guess, after looking at the chat network status data, is that the problems you are encountering are coming from their end, rather than Canonfire! If the problems persist, I suggest visiting www.otherworlders.org and seeking assistance there.

    Sorry for the inconvenience

    The CF link now works for me. Thanks to the CF admins for ironing out the difficulties.

    For those who may still be encountering difficulties, I note that when I try to log on through the CF link sometimes I need to try two or three times before java "takes" and opens the chat window. And in every case, I come in as a guest and have to adjust my nickname (instructions for which are just below the chat window). Hope this may prove helpful.

    Sorry for posting in an old thread but it's on topic for my problem Smile .

    I tried for about 2 hours tonight to get into chat and it wouldn't let me. I tried going in through the java thing here on the website...

    Then tried mirc but couldn't figure out how to do it. I went to that new mirc users/help link that's there but all I got was a broken link/site not responding.

    I tried using that chatzilla thing posted above as I use firefox but that wouldn't work either it just kept giving me a "retry in 30 seconds."

    Dunno why but the java thing here at the website kept saying something about "forbidden you do not have access."

    I swear I was nice last week so dunno why I been forbidden Shocked .

    Edit: went and looked and it said this:

    Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access /chat/cf/ on this server.
    Apache/2.2 Server at www.otherworlders.org Port 80


    Dunno if that helps but that's what I kept getting when I tried the java thinigie.

    Otherworlders itself was down apparently, so users of whatever chat method(Java, Chatzilla, mIRC, Mibbit, etc.) were unable to get in for a while this evening. I posted the following elsewhere, but I'll put it here too.

    This is a heads up for everyone who wants to visit the chat rooms. Java still works fine as far as I can tell(usually), but mIRC users will need to switch servers(unless you are just starting out with the chat room).

    For mIRC users, launch mIRC as normal. You will not be able to connect until you do the following:

    Got to "Tools" and then "Options". Under the "Catergory:" section on the left side of the box under the "Connect" heading, highlight the folder named "Servers", and click the "Add" button at the right. In the new box that pops up type in a short description of the server in the Description box, "Gamechat" for instance. In the "IRC Server" box type "irc.otherworlders.org"(don't type the quotes obviously:wink:), and in the "Ports" box type "6667", which is the #greytalk channel. There is no need to enter anything under the "Group" box. Enter a pasword if you wish, and then click "Add".

    That should fix your problem and you should be able to restart mIRC and get into the chatrooms. Access the channel list as normal to join a specific chatroom. My thanks to Daigle who helped me a bit with my own switchover. Hope this helps somebody else.

    Once you have mIRC installed, you can actually use this direct link:

    irc://irc.otherworlders.org/greytalk

    If anybody has any further help to pass along then by all means do so! Cool

    I went through the posts here and got one of the instructions to work...

    It was posted by ratlord

    <<<In chatzilla, type:

    /attach thulcandra.otherworlders.org

    once it connects, type:

    /nick YourNickname

    yournickname being whatever you want, with no spaces, use underscores _

    then

    /join #greytalk

    that's it. >>>



    I couldn't get any of the others to work.


    At least I think I got it to work... I am in a chat room called greytalk but for all I know I am on the wrong side of the cyber universe, on a wrong server, sitting in there talking to myself Smile


    EDIT: OOps as it turns out I was on the wrong side of the cyber universe in the wrong chat room. While writing my post the post above mine was made and by following the link in it I was able to get into chat. Thank you Smile

    This link worked like a charm

    irc://irc.otherworlders.org/greytalk

    Thanks Smile

    Are you using mIRC?

    Internet Explorer was giving me troubles. I switched to Mozilla Firefox. Icarus helped me with it, you might PM him.

    BlueWitch: You may have been on the wrong server. What you describe happened to me once when I wasn't paying attention to what server I had hooked up to when reinstalling mIRC. Double check all of your settings and that you are on the right server.

    Would any of that server stuff even be relevant, since I log into chats with the link on the CF main page? I've heard recent updates from MS have made a real mess of things, even for us using firefox.

    I've pretty much always logged into chats this way, since my attempts at using mIRC never worked. That was an irritating couple of Thursday nights of not being able to check out chats. (Back when I was a greychat newbie, or technically before, since it wasn't until I used the firefox method that I was able to get into the chat)

    I guess I should have mentioned my logging in method in the initial post. Well, everybody rolls a 1 eventually. It was just my turn.

    Here we go again

    Well, once again, I try to log into the chat, and once again, I get a blank screen and it tells me there are 0 users in chat.

    I don't know what I did to piss off Ralishaz so much. Cry

    Sorry, this is a temporary situation while we make changes to the 'face' of Canonfire!

    Mibbet is a free link:

    https://cbe002.chat.mibbit.com/


    This is the Mibbet home page. Connect using Otherworlders, replacing the Mibbet you'll see in that slot.
    Enter your nick and the Channel #Greytalk and you go right to it!
    Again, our apologies.

    Same here. The PHP server was issuing some MySQL error messages earlier, but it seems to have cleared up. If anybody is having trouble joining GREYchat using mIRC, try the link here instead: http://www.otherworlders.org/chat/cf/

    BlueWitch,

    I use Firefox and log in through mibbit not mIrc so I don't know what java setting your using that could be whats causing it? I always thought Guest could not post strange.

    Yeah 3 seconds I was wondering what happened to you last night?

    I hope you can get it fixed. Also note you can try logging on on any day to see if you figured out the problem.

    Later

    I also use firefox, and I have for quite a few years now, and that's how I always log into chat: Firefox and the link on the CF main page.

    I think you're on to something about java settings. The other week I tried a DVD in this machine and had some troubles with it and the disc player. I remember trying to change some settings in something to get it to work. So it's very possible I changed something in java and can't find it now.

    I just tried getting into the chat room just before posting this. Just like last Thursday, and the Thursday before that, I get in, and get the boot a few seconds later.

    OK, since the most likely theory for why I can't get into chat anymore, is something in java, I'll ask does anybody know how I can adjust those settings? My computer runs vista, I should warn you Wink (Actually, I mention that because I know a lot of things are different by operating system)
    This is the 3rd, maybe 4th, week that I haven't been able to get to the Thursday chat. I'm having withdrawal.

    Well, now I tried the link Argon provided, that worked last week. Now it won't even admit a chatroom exists. So I tried the link in this site, and got in for 4 seconds like usual now.

    I have no idea what the deal is.

    GREYtalk happens every Thursday evening, EST/PST, so if you do not live in North/South America you will need to figure in the time difference (for France I believe it would be early Friday morning).

    Is it active on Thursdays? I made it in finally. Somewhat difficult to get in. Showing 5 users in the channel on mid day Saturday.

    https://discordapp.com/channels/413945819205468160/413945819205468162

    Might need an invite to get in.
