    This is the reason I haven't tried chat, taken from the general forum rules:

    16. You must post on the forum at least five (5) times daily to be able to remain in the chat room. The forum is the foundation of this site, chat is just an add-on. If you don't participate on the forum, you will not be welcome in chat.

    I do post on TN when I have something to add, but I don't keep the pace of 5 posts a day, every day, so I figured I wouldn't be allowed to use chat. Maybe that has relaxed now?

    I usually don't have the time or desire to visit chat rooms but it seems that on TN the chat room is becoming a way to give quick notices of good HITs and other vital news that is helpful to all who are trying to make a buck on mTurk. With the relaxing of certain rules that required greater participation, I might need to check it out. Kudos to Spamgirl and other admins for turning this chat room into something more than idle chatter.

    Relaxing the posting rule would be great. So many times there either aren't posts that I care to comment on, posts about requestors I have no experience with, or people have already posted what I would have said. I did find the few times I went into chat that it was a fun and useful experience.

    Both rules are gone... as long as no one abuses the freedom by sitting there and NEVER chatting, it'll be fine
    It's all good.

    I just checked it out for the first time-signed in, then had to come to the forum and find the post that tells us how to use it- when I go to another tab, it bumps me and I had to sign in again. Is that normal? Also, working on finding the regular chat-

    Is it just me or is the chat room never working? I've tried different browsers and most of the time it just won't even load. It seems like once a week when I try to go in it works fine though.

    It always works for me on FF and chrome. I never use IE unless some requester forces it in a hit.

    Right now there are about 15 ppl in there.

    I don't know what's wrong with my computer. I just tried again in safari and in chrome. Neither worked.

    You could try using a IRC chat client to access the room.

    I only suggested KVirc because it is free but there are many others available.
