The flashchat isn't as popular...It used to be, but not as much since the bar saying who was in there disappeared due to compatibility to the update...But a good amount of people are on the IRC, which you get to through MIRC, Mibbet, Chatzilla, etc...Moo may remove the flashchat, since it's not as popular, and too many people in it cripples the site performance
The chat can be awesome when the right members are around, otherwise it's nothing but a bunch of greetings and haphazard ramblings, not that I pay much attention to #adisc to begin with. I use the IRC for PMs that way people can talk to me when they want to and I don't have to keep up with the conversation, when there is one, so much... Not to mention it's easier to avoid people I don't like.
It really sucks that Flashchat has died. I remember back in the day when it used to be all busy and you could always find someone on it. Well I guess times change. I'll have to stop in IRC somtime then soon I guess.
