A little while back, there was discussion about this sort of thing. Since there was a little bit of interest in this idea, I've created a small, unofficial Discord server to supplement Crackchat. It has a few advantages over AIM, the main one being it's accessible to mobile users without having to go through extreme amounts of frustration and work-arounds that don't always like to work.

https://discord.gg/RwQXpyB <-- Server link

You can access Discord by clicking the link, which will take you to a web applet. You can also download a desktop client for Discord from this page, as well as getting it from your phone or tablet's app store. All versions are free to download.

Right now, the server is set up to require email verification, to keep the amount of randos wandering in at a minimum. Players who enter the server will need to be verified by other players in order to see chat history, post links and images, and access the plotting rooms. All verified users can verify other users. You can also kick out people who don't belong on the server. If you want to help mod the server (which gives you the ability to ban the randos), let me know.

ETA: once you're verified, you should have the ability to verify other players without having to wait for me to get to my computer. Just right click on their name and go down to the bottom of the pop up menu where it says roles. This is only available on the PC client, and maybe Android right now? All I know is it's not on iOS, which is where I am the majority of the time. \o/

So, I has a shiny new laptop now, after committing involuntary manslaughter against my old one. I also has a new version of AIM which doesn't seem to allow me to get into crackchat.

Is there someone who knows a way I can either a) Get in via AIM or b) use some other chat program to do it?

I have failed to get into crackinthewall from different computers, on two different networks using two different clients.



ETA: Apparently it was my username! Temporary solution found.

Is CrackChat Gone for every one else too?

Could someone please invite lycanthrofaerie into ye old chat? My client doesn't support self invites.

(It's a great client otherwise, though)

Three attempts to get into crackinthewall have all timed out. If somebody could shoot me an invite to the new chat, or post its name in comments or what have you, it would give me a happy like you have never.

New crackchat, everyone!

Pretty. See? )

Go to crackinthewall. We promise it won't eat you.


You should go!

ETA: A lot of people can't seem to get into either chat, or one or the other. So, AIM is broke'd more than crackchat, but we still have a new crackchat. Let's all have a ritual stabbing of AIM, shall we?

Alas, poor welcomeincrack. I knew him, Horatio.

Which is to say, old chat appeared to have died. Crackchat can now be found at cheeseandcrackers!

No, the chat hasn't moved, and yes, you're not the only one with problems getting into crackchat.

Or any chat.

Crackchat is still at 'welcomeincrack', but AIM is not letting people into chats. It seems to be SN-based, because I can get in with my alternative SN, but somebody else just told me she can't get in with any of her three SNs.

As technical difficulties are not conducive to good and fluent RPage, I will bring back Urquhart tomorrow or on Monday, not today as planned.-

ETA: Booted alterna!me as well. AIM sucks Ankh water.-

ETA2: New chat is at cheeseandcrackers

Works with original SNs!

Did welcomeincrack die or is just really weirdly empty? And if so, what's the new room?
18 May 2009 @ 07:56 pm
Because there's only three people in welcomeincrack including myself now. Where is everybody?
...and all your plots and convos flap in the wind...

...and find you lost, wandering where to go...

...then welcome!

I know that aim has been particularly horrible lately in terms of chat and I'm currently in the old chat room firecrackers but no one's there.

Was a new room created and the memo just didn't get around? Please if you know where chat is hiding, let me know so the crack can flow.

ETA: Chat was just being quiet, but its still firecrackers.
16 December 2008 @ 06:37 pm
The new crackchat can now be found at firecrackers, just wanted to make sure everyone knew that it wasn't hiding, the other one just died.

*bows head for a moment of silence* Right, so come join the new one.

What is the current crack chat? Is it still 'Cheesecrackers'? Is anyone there? I finally have my Firefox, and thus my Meebo, working again and can get to a group chat.

Secondly, there is a Firefox plug in that allows you to switch between lj user IDs. What is the name of it? I've had to completely remove Firefox from my hard drive and reinstall to get it working properly again but I didn't save all my add-ons.

Assuming it continues working more than a few minutes, crackchat is at cheesecrackers.
18 August 2008 @ 04:35 pm
thecrackalope was, despite the awesome name, being very wonky for several of us - it took me eight tries to get one IM to show up - but new chats seemed to work fine, so we're now experimenting with thecrackawakes for the time being. See you there!

Attention, attention:

AIM is made of fail, and it looks like "thecrackalsorises" is breathing its last breath.

Welcome chat, then to "thecrackalope" (A thousand thanks to whoever suggested the new title.)
07 July 2008 @ 07:32 pm
Guys, I'm in thecrackalsorises and it's empy. Where's my crackfolken at?
