Unhappy I can't get into the chat!

I have tried both click "join the chat" and "Join the chat (Popup)", and let it load for like 30 mins and nothing happens.

Why is this and can I do something to help me get in

i can't get in either through the site, but everyone should be able to get in if you're willing to download a freeware IRC client, like mIRC for instance.

on the site i gave you there's a good tutorial for how to install the software. if you've done that you still need to fill in the correct date for WTAworld chat.

Kanji wrote this out, and i added some details:

1. On the connect screen (File -> Connect), you should have a "Add" button, press it.
2. Fill up the screen, Description (WTAworld, for example), port (9420), IP/IRC Server (64.246.57.130), leave the rest blank and click "Add".
3. Now back to the connect screen, in "IRC Network" select "All".
4. Chose "WTAworld" (description you entered) in the scroll down menu bellow that.
5. Press "Connect to IRC"
6. Once you are connected, type '/join #tennis' (no apostrophe) and you should be in!

Are you behind a company/personal firewall? Port 9420 must be open in order for you to connect.

this won't help you to get into our chatroom *through* the site, it will only give you an alternative to enter our chatroom...

well i can't help you to get in through the site as even opening port 9420 didn't help me

the other possibility is to access our server through a separate IRC program which would connect you immediately to the chat channel without accessing the site.

Explanation to download, install and configurate that software is posted above by carot

did you download mIRC? did you install it? it's a separate program that has nothing to do with the site...
