Testing tinychat out- seems to work so far. Come join me. Simple login. The review i read seemed to say the one caveat is bad audio quality, so if someone can come in and let me know if that's atrocious it'd be great.

We used to do skype when the activities thread started, and we'd actually get a fair number of people on mic. However, if we're looking for video, from what I hear, Google's chat is the best because it has the availability for more cams than what stickam offered, as well as the cams being displayed larger than as on stickam.

Clearly Jess. Anybody who smiles is more likely to get close and tear your head off.

there is also oovoo. My friend and I used it for a while and we did have some sucess when setting up the minecraft server with a bunch of NG users. all had audio and you can also do multiple cams.

So far though this tiny chat thing looks like it works better.

For skype, the max in the call is like 25 without someone buying premium. So the 314 members we had in stickam will have some trouble finding a space... Tinychat seems fine, I made an account and stuff already. Does someone need to be in the chat room for it to still exist? or can it be inactive for a certain amount of time...

It says it doesn't work on Chrome for me, but it does! Maybe try again? I dunno D:

Anyways, everyone, if you make a tinychat profile, post your username here so I can mod you, because it's more convoluted than Stickam.

They're not saying. Stickam closed effectively overnight, and outside of a short meaningless statement have declined to comment on what caused it. Nobody knows, and there's been quite a bit of contention from the core audience over that.

This was just after the introduction of the paid "VIP" service too.

Also, if you are going to stick with TinyChat, I will purchase the iOS app. Let me know, so I don't waste precious 1,79â'¬ on it for nothing.

cheapskate indeed

Fairly sure the tinychat app has the same parameters as the Stickam one did; that is, rooms are local to the iOS and can't interract with rooms established on the host site.

An alternative, the one I use, is the Puffin flash browser application, which is buttfuck useless for anything that isn't a chatroom but works pretty well in that context.

I looked into it and you are right. That sucks. Thanks for the heads up though.

Oh I remember that you told me about it, didn't remember the app's name though. Thanks.

I've been getting this page all day:

"The page you are looking for is currently unavailable
Try again in a few minutes."

Anyone else have the same thing?

Fucking hell no, never. More like gonorrhea+. Was forced to sign up for some G+ thing with one account of mine and its made the thing a burning festering pain that I loathe even having to log into because its flooded with pus filled ads and notifications and shit relating to the crap i didnt want in the first place. And its impossible to get rid of now.
