Chat Not WorkingPage 1 of 1    
For the past day, I cannot get chat invites to go through. I open up a chat window and it apparently connects -- but the user on the other end is not receiving the request. I verified this with someone -- they said they never got the request (i.e., no chat request came through on their end). Is anyone else having this problem?

I have found that if you close the chat window, then click the link to open it again, you may have better luck.

The chat feature does experience connection issues from time to time.

One way to reduce issues is to verify that cookies are enabled (not just to sites you click to, but fully enabled).

Also check that popups are not blocked.

If everyone did that, then I'm hoping that these connection issues will resolve themselves.

I have contacted several people and not one responds

I emailed pof about this problem, here is their reply :

Hello,
Thank you for taking the time to email POF.com.
Unfortunately, Adobe Flash is currently experiencing issues with its latest version. If you are using our Chat with this version, you may be noticing issues. If you have another browser on your computer, we recommend that you try the chat with that browser, as it may work correctly.
Adobe is currently working on a fix for this. We hope that you'll send a message using the traditional messaging system in the meantime!
Thank you for your patience. Chat will be back up and running smoothly again soon!

I don't know if it is true or not, but it would explain all the problems with it not working.

Hey peeps!

Just downloaded Safari as ive tried all of the other browsers like firefox, chrome, I.E etc and chat worked!

What you have to do is after you have downloaded Safari go to 'settings' (top right of the page) 'preferences' then 'privacy' and where it says 'block cookies' change it to 'never' then go to security and uncheck the box saying 'block pop up windows'.

Should work!

Don't look for it to return soon. Unless you want another unstable feature to return.

^^^Read my post just above yours.
Chat has been disabled by the site administrators. They tried to initiate a new chat system and it threw the entire site into one of its many tizzies. So they had to disable it. I’m not sure why so many don’t get it? Unless you are not actually reading all the posts about this.

You have posted in each of above threads yourself. Each of your posts are all basically the same comments.

Hopefully you would start to grasp the idea that chat is disabled here. Just possibly, just maybe, they tried the new version here first and decided that since they screwed things up so much on this site it just might not be a good idea to do the same elsewhere.

I will only post this reply here since answering your post in each thread would be redundant.
