No, there are no locks or bans at the moment. I can't give you an answer any better than that without knowing more about how you are trying to connect, sorry.

Uh, just through the site's Chat link.

I'm clicking "Enter Chat" and it tells me the connection has timed out.

I can replicate the issue and have reached out to the folks who run the chat server. It looks like the one server that ran the version of chat that worked the way we wanted to was shut down, and nobody on their staff realized that anyone used it. They're not very keen on restarting it, so all I can suggest for now is to connect via a dedicated client (I suggest Pidgin for typical users because it supports almost every messaging protocol - https://www.pidgin.im/ ) or by using the chat network's own webchat at http://darkmyst.org/?page=webchat .

I'll try to get something set up to replace it, because I don't think we're going to get the current one back, but I don't think it's going to happen very quickly.

I suppose it'd be more of an issue if there were more chat traffic

But I wondered if y'all would like me to play you some ff music on the guitar

As an update to this issue, I'm finally working on this having forgotten about it long ago. I hope to have something back working on the site itself in the near future, but in the meantime please continue to use a standalone client or the webchat at darkmyst.org. Thanks!
