A big thank you to V for finding a new chat room for the HCF site. I tested it with two browsers and it does work. It doesn't have the features such as video and photo unless people pay for it (the chat room is a third-party software), but if you want a profile, you'll have to register (free). IP addresses are logged...so people CAN be banned if there are some naughty people. But I'm sure that that shouldn't happen very often. :)
Anyone wanting to help moderate the chat room, please register with http://chatango.com and then send me an email with your username.
