    We have installed a new Chat system, it works without Java or Flash - you can also connect from behind firewalls.

    Give it a try!

    Guys, if you're having trouble with lag while using Mozilla Firefox, please download and install the Firefox extension "ChatZilla". Then, click here.

    Perhaps we should stick this so that people who are too lazy to click the "live chat" button on the front page have a quick link to TPU chat? :p.

    I would like to express some concern about the moderation of the chat. There are NO op's on later at night and since it's an open chat, we are getting some rough people in there.

    Also since it's an open chat, we dont know the age of the members chatting. I was made OP by an op in the room because I stay up late and I had to kick someone for posting porn links. There was a 15 year old member in the room at the time. If I wasnt there, that member would have continued to post because no staff was there.

    IMO, this is not the type of enviroment that this place stands for.

    Also, some of the members here have a tendency to get foul and without ops, they are free to do what they want.

    I suggest adding an operator that will be up later into the night. I am sure that there are some night owls around here that would be happy to do it. I am one of them.

    I hope this is taken into consideration.
