Yes, it appears that the software WhatBird uses has eliminated the chat room. I've spoken briefly to Bigfoot about it; he is going to investigate and see if anything can be done, although he has other priorities at the moment (he has a LOT of other responsibilities here besides monitoring the forums).

There is another brief thread on this topic here, but I think it's fine to leave this one so more people will see it. I'll pin it for a while.

not looking like there will be a chat room.

 

 

If it's been removed from the software used to run the site, I'm not sure if it would be possible to get it back.
