Many of you have noticed on your wikias that Chat has been crashing or down in the last few days. Wikia is aware of the issue and actively diagnosing the issue and testing changes to our chat configuration, even over the weekend.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you in advance for your patience! We will get you back chatting normally as soon as we possibly can.
It's being glared at, with a serious glint in the eye ;)
We've restarted the system, which has brought CC chat and others back to life, but we're likely not out of the woods yet. We'll keep monitoring the problems, and hopefully will find a long-term solution soon
My chat seems to have lag. It only seems to effect me, but it means I may not see comments, mine or other users, when they get posted. This can be a huge issue as I have to keep refreshing the chat in order to actually make sure I see everything.
Anyway, like I said above, the canon is one of the only reliable chats to only crash one or twice, but I have no idea why that is. Keep your fingers crossed that it stayed a backup chat *Crosses fingers*
The chats I go on are working quite well. (Minus bronies chat as it's crashing). Otherwise (besides the tremendous lag but that might be my WiFi) it's working. Once again, thank you staff for fixing this issue, hope we are out of the woods soon! :-)

Risf: Chat is still a work in progress. Some chats are stable, but others are crashing intermittently. And we sometimes need to restart the system to bring dead chats back.
It's a surprisingly tricky problem, and we're doing a lot of monitoring to get more information to fix the issue. So we may have to bear with the crashes for a while, I'll let you know when I hear more!
There are definitely still issues, despite my hopes above. It seems it's something deep in the set-up that's causing the problem. It's turned out to be much more complicated that we hoped. But the tech team will find it, I'm sure, and we'll go back to a more stable experience
It might be just me but today these problems seemed to be a lot less frequent, in fact, I've been able to access chat freely all day without fail and the only times I had to refresh were because of my own internet.
