I tried to login and got this message:
"Our apologies. Chat is not enabled in this network."
Has it gone forever? I hope not, I need some BTC advice!

We disabled chat because it was slowing down the site and cause browser lock-ups for a lot of members.
Feel free to post your questions on the forums though! :)
What's BTC by the way?
I did find myself needing to restart my browser every so often. Will it be back, or is that it for the indefinite future?
BTC is Bitcoin, a new digital peer-2-peer currency, the price of which is going up every day. Some members put me on to it but it's difficult to buy in the UK.
Made lots of friend there. You need to be a member here to access the chat (as far as I know), so I don't see how it could possibly turn non-members off by "reflecting badly on the community". But those conversations had were priceless.
Discussion topics often drifted away from the 30BaD 'mission statement', but overall the chatroom is/was a good thing. Many people new to 811rv asked questions there and received help.
If it isn't due to be reinstated anytime soon in its previous form, could I request that it be made available via a specific/dedicated link, perhaps even to a separate system so it won't affect normal site operation?
I would like it back! I got a lot of advice from others in the community and it made it feel more like a community. I learned a lot from those chats, and it was one thing that separated this website from others. I do not think it was a bad representation, as Macuil said, non-members could not view it. Will definitely find myself coming on here less.
I will miss the chat. Ok i will find more time to learn now.
but if you care about slow browsing , because of the chat, i think the whole 30Bad Page including the forum is a bit overloaded and slow browsing. maybe you find a solution for this too.
nooo :( it was nice to talk to fruities!
thx for the link
doesnt sound like the end though does it ? ...(maybe i over-read something....) or it means its gone for ever? i dont think it was just the chat slowing this down. All things i wanna access now r still butt-slow. Always takes a long time to load pages.
well we ll see where this goes... if the chat is gonna be off for ever i dont really see a reason to come here anymore. i m not a friend of those "ask in a forum and wait for ages to get an answer-thing" ...
lets think positive :)
I figured we can go to chat on this widget on my page it's easy to make a guest account It's not the same.. hopefully temporary.. :/ maybe 30bad can host their own servers and abandon the problem that is ning. I doubt that though..
There is a huge difference in how a chat and how a forum feels like.
A chat is like a room you can just walk into, sit down, be around others and maybe even join the conversation. It is much more alive then a forum, which in comparison is also a room, but when you walk into it, no one is around, only messages of other people and while you can leave a message too, you will never be in the room when another person answers.
While I didn't knew about the chat when I joined and it was more of an added bonus, it helped me a great deal being in that "room" with like minded people - even just sitting around. While in the forum ... I even started a discussion, describing my problems and asking for help, but whatever the reason, maybe wrong part of the forum, badly worded (I wasn't at my best, else I wouldn't even have started the discussion), or just because I didn't write "help I'm fat!" (sorry I couldn't resist, since my topic was way less important than that :p ), it didn't get any replies so I deleted it after a couple of days - in the chat I felt welcomed, in the forum not.
So ... pretty please don't kill of the chat :/
chat gone = *scary* *cry*
hehe...maybe its gonna end up that we r chatting here now :D LOL
mir ist langweilig...ich geh jetzt ins BEtt.... so n käse ! gute nacht :) sweet dreams
