FT Chat status? [NOTE: FT Chat gone for good per Internet Brands]

One of the most popular events on the VX 1948 DO last week was Virgin America's inflight chat feature. More than a handful of times, I heard members ask why Flyertalk doesn't have a chat room, and I answered we do. But apparently we don't anymore? Chat is still present in the Extras drop down menu, but the web page is blank. What's going on? Dead forever?

Would you post a screen shot showing this please? IB will then take the link away.

A bit of background: chat has been gone for many years. IB looked into it early on and couldn't find a cost effective offering. I, myself, made a lot of friends in early years thru hanging out in chat. It was a lot of fun.

I would love a chat feature. It would be so fun to get to know everyone.

Internet Brands staff continues to report that Chat is no longer available and will not be replaced with a different platform.
