View Full Version : Problems logging into the chatroom
10-01-2002, 08:31 PM
I seem to be encountering that problem that happened with the chatroom, a while back (Where the log in box doesn't appear.). Does anyone else seem to be having this problem? A few minutes ago, I had no problems logging in (Yes, I closed my browser so the java could restart.).
Won't let me in tonight.
I get to the rules screen, and there's nowhere to go beyond that.
Oh well, I know I won't be breaking any rules.
Tech-Specs for the mods...

The old chatroom is gone. So this is no longer an issue.
Try the new one. It's the 5th forum from the top of the main foum page. You must be registered and logged in to use the chat.

I have the smae problem. When I get to the page where you are supposed to log in, instead of their being a place to log in I get a red x inside an image placeholder...similar to what you would see if you were looking at a post that had a link to a non-existant image.

Folks, the old chat room is GONE.
It does not exist anymore.
You will not find a entrance on the old enter the chatroom page because there is not one. I took it away.
Go to the new chatroom in the chat forum. There are links on the old chat page that point you there. Or just enter through the chat forum directly.

I know the old one is gone. I was referring to the entrance to the new one..the one we are supposed to use...I can't see the entrance to it.

If you cannot see the entrance to the new chat room (A forum named 'enter the TMF chatroom') which is located in the chat forum (The 5th forum down from the top of the main forum page) then you are not logged in when you are looking inside the chat forum. If you are an AOL user this cool be a cookie problem, but since you are posting, that is probably not the case.
Let's try this: What do you see on the page where you think the forum entrance should be?

Is your computer plugged into the AC outlet?

Okay here are the steps I take. I know cookies are enabled because whenever I come to the TMF I'm already logged in and it welcomes me by name. I go to the 5th forum down under the "INTERACTION" heading which is labled "Chat Room". Then I click on the only forum listed which says "Enter the TMF Chat Room". The last page I see has the rules at the top, then a big image place holder outline with a red x in the upper left hand corner and then some other text at the bottom which allows me to see threads from various dates. I think I'm at the right place and I am using an actual internet service provider not a gateway like AOL.

Have you downloaded Java Runtime?
10-27-2002, 11:40 PM
Ah. Your problem is in your system. It's not running the java you need to enter the room. Odds are your systems Java is corrupted. A quick test, can you enter a yahoo club chat room? If you cannot, then you need to download a new java for your computer.

Myriads and others,
Thank you for your patience in answering this thread. I downloaded and installed the Microsoft Virtual Machine which as I understand it will allow java applets to run and now it works like a charm. Thanks!

Glad that it has worked out. So many ways things can go wrong with all the different systems.
