Everytime I try the chat it doesn't connect. I've tried it on my Mac, a PC, in both browsers, but it never works. It seems like a better idea to go in chat to get scores, but it just won't work even when there aren't many people in there.
Thanks for reporting this problem to us. There was an unintentional limit set on the live chat system that meant a maximum of 20 people could join at any given time. We have now fixed this so as many of you who want to chat live, or get scores, are able to do so!
And yes, this is the best way of live scoring because the chat server is much more resource friendly than vbulletin. Just login and you wont need to click refresh to get scores from a thread, while waiting ten minutes for the page to load.
I'd just like to say the Live Chat worked brilliantly during Jen v Serena earlier. It's much better than the scoring threads as those who were watching the match on tv could instantly let everyone else know the score, instead of having to wait for the page to load
I did get disconnected at one point, but that was my computer's fault, nothing wrong with the chat.
