Hello TamaTalkers!

I wanted to let everyone know that TamaCHAT is going to be shutting down for the foreseeable future.  As I make preparations to update the site and move things forward, I am taking a step back to look at things that are not used much anymore and re-evaluating if they are necessary.  Back in the day, chat was used by a lot of people in situations where a chat room just made sense.  A look at the recent activity shows that it really isn't used much anymore.  My thinking is that there are LOTS more options and services available now for chatting with friends from TT that are probably easier to use.  Just wanted to give everyone a heads up. :D  Hope this isn't too disappointing for any of you.

I loved that chat room, and I hate to see it go. But, it's for the best. I'd rather you keep this chat room up, Admin, but it's not up to me. Good luck trying to find another server for a chat room. I'm hoping that TamaCHAT will revived as a chat room with another name at least, but whatever you plan to do, Admin, I'm with ya all the way as I am sorry for being a bit dodgy on this, as I wasn't expecting this, so I apologize. I agree that the use of TamaCHAT has decreased, so I am somewhat supportive of this decision.

 

I guess that was why I couldn't connect to the room because the server/IP it connected to no longer exists.

Ah yes, this is somewhat saddening to hear because of all the memories I have with TamaChat. But these days, I talk to my friends [including fellow Tamagotchi fans] on Skype, Line, etc.

 

I understand your decision.

 

Rest in peace TamaChat. :wub:

Had fun with tamachat back when it used to be active. Makes sense that it's being removed, though. Rip.

That's a shame, I was looking forward to joining. However, if there isn't anyone to chat with because of the low numbers of users I suppose it doesn't really have a point. There are other ways to chat with people individually, but it is not really the same as gathering everyone in the group. Oh well.

A reasonable decision. I miss the days that I spent chatting with users, but the past has little affect on the present in terms of chat activity

Have you considered creating a TamaTalk discord chat group? I think that would be pretty cool.

TamaCHAT really wasn't being used much at all and normally only by a few members so I don't think it really make sense for Admin to close it and then straight away create another chat group.  

 

As Admin mentioned there are lots of options and services for any members who want to set something up themselves so that they can chat with other TamaTalk friends ;)

I'm going to miss TamaCHAT, farewell, old friend.

From getting into the chat to now, I'll have fond memories of chatting there.

Oh my gosh I just noticed it's gone from the status bar.
I knew about this for ages, but now I'm gonna have to get used to not seeing the number "1" or more up there.

Goodbye, TamaCHAT!

I don't want to self-advertise (but here I am), but I've had a Discord server that's been somewhat empty for a while now...

It's sad to hear that it's going away, since I do remember the days when it'd be bustling with at least several people chatting away; however, it makes sense considering how easy it is to IM nowadays with services like Skype and IRC chats.
