Nope, the chat has been down since before the site hack, due to it being super heavy on the site server and causing the site to crash.
Jordan is still working on it, but I don’t think he has made much progress.
Not to mention that really the chat function brought more problems to the site than pluses.
1/ Individual chats cannot be moderated, so I ended up with a lot of pm’s from people who were getting annoyed by other members constantly messaging them. Seriously the biggest issue on the site came from the chat.
2/ Only Jordan (if even) could moderate a chatroom and even then I think the system was pretty complex.
3/ Even the concept of having to moderate a live chatbox seems complex to me.
That is just my opinion on it from my experiences, the only times the chat really worked well was organised events, which usually crashed the site or chatting with friends, which can be done just as easily via pm.
99% of the chats I was involved in were either people telling me about issues with others in chats or completely random crazy chats with members who seemingly signed up just to mess around in the chat.
