Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

While regular posting is now disabled, you can continue to view all threads until the end of June 2019. Event Hosts can still create and promote events while we work on a new and improved event creation service for you.

Thank you!

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 contacted several people and not one responds

That post was 4-10 of this year. The chat has since been disabled. See this thread
Post 12 by the owner of this site.

Also see
Post 3.

It is also the discussion in this post
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.
