A chat area is now available at ProZ.com. This is provided as an alternative to the chat available at Unisfair, which has been difficult for some users to access.

To get to the chat, go to the virtual conferences area, and click on the "Chat" tab. Then select your language of choice.


* This is brand new and untested. It is not clear whether this will perform any better than the Unisfair chat.
* Only one person from a given IP can access the chat at any one time.

Update: 2pm EDT - A different server has been selected that should better handle the number of users.

Super Sep 30, 2009

at first glance it works so much better than the unisfair chat.
Thanks for your quick reaction.
We'll test it extensively

Will this chat stay on ProZ or is it just for today?

Thanks again.

first impossible to chat, now impossible to register at the ProZ conference Sep 30, 2009


First of all, I have to say that you guys at ProZ did a great job with this first Conference, I was enjoying it until I wasn't able to log in again. And thank you for opening this new communication channel to share my frustration.

I tried to join one of the chats at ProZ conference earlier today but the experience was rather schyzo and frustrationg since the automatic down scroll that was set up in the chat window didn't allow to read old messages, it kept bouncing down to the last message!

And now, even more frustrating, I cannot register at the conference website. I just get a blank page.

Is anybody having the same problem? Has anybody got a solution?

What a pity. I was enjoying the live events I attended so far.
