Can't Access UK Chatterbox - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

The new chatsite for UKCB is only just launched and building quickly its a friendly site with no dramas its a brilliant site and love it wouldnt go anywhere else now, it is moderated but staff are friendly and join in the conversations, obvioulsy they have rules but not as strict as other chatsites try it out I did and wldnt change now

UK Chat should take a small members fee, that would stop a lot of those with more than one ID

Why didn't the *ukcb admin/owner* put his/her name by his post?? Some of you will know Poppy one of the ukcb admin and the real owner Blaster was in touch with her 3/4 weeks ago letting her know that they are still working on ukcb but it's taking time as they want the site more secure also Blaster does have a life outside of ukcb like work for instance. All these sites that have been set up claiming to be new ukcb's are fakes, any Blasters on their staff are not the real Blaster and if ukcb was not coming back Poppy and other admin staff would be the first to know. Btw *ukcb admin/owner* was quick to copy and paste your post on isitdownrightnow??? Not surprised tbh as he doesn't want ukcb to come back, but until Poppy tells me that ukcb has closed for good I don't believe your post whatsoever! Ladygenie

Subject: UKChatterbox Update Fri Aug 16, 2013 1:29 pm

Okies Poppy and myself have been doing a little investigating... Blaster the owner of ukcb re-registered the UKChatterbox site name and the domain last month for another 3yrs, he has to pay a registration fee to do that, it's not a great amount to pay but why bother to do it if he has no plans to bring ukcb back.

There is a new ukcb being built but no updates on how far they’ve got building it... anyway some positive news and hope. Just remember it could be some time before the new ukcb is finished bearing in mind the number of chat rooms as well. If there’s anyone you know who are waiting for ukcb’s return please pass on the info, discreetly of course.but if you use UKCHATTERS or UKCHITCHAT please don’t pass on the info on those sites thanks.

Most chatters from ukcb are heading into as an alternative, maybe temp or perm? depending on what happens to UKCB itself. But is a great temporary home for every ukcb chatter to head into until we all know for sure. PS I my nickname was SneakyMikey and later, HeartFire - I was in Luton room, Bisensuals room and Christian room a lot of the time.

Any fellow chatter friends and chatters that remember me, are welcome to friend me on Facebook from here, and, indeed, anyone else that sees this message that is from ukcb to befriend if you wish.
Regards to you all, fun times at UKCB when it was all happening!

Remember -

Hybrid Minds · 20 May 2013 - 16:52

ukchatters is GREAT! :| I made a profile because I had to, to see what the others were like. Its not as good as UKCB used to be, you can see that by all the members. As for it being "stable" it sometimes freezes like UKCB used to LOL

Thomas Dolan · 23 April 2013 - 07:57

UKCB ADMIN owner 5 2013.04.19
The site has closed down for a number of reasons; which at this stage I cannot comment on. There are no plans for the foreseeable future to brng UKCB back online; unfortunately this will mean that the current status remains. Due to the rising cost of bandwidth and server costs it is also no longer practical to continue to provide a free service, and as a result small charges will apply if the chat service is restored. There are, as previously mentioned, other reasons that the service has been suspended, and as soon as I am in a position to reveal this information; I will let you all know. Thank you to everyone over the years that used and supported this service.

Elizabeth Murrell · 1 April 2013 - 05:43

good afternoon, just cannot log on to chatterbox 247, been using the same
nickname and password for 5 yrs

Debby Bailey · 16 March 2013 - 16:50

I heard that it was back up under a different url. If anyone has that please send it to me.

Sean Delaney · 16 March 2013 - 07:37

"We will be back soon Dont Worry we havent gone for good.P"... I bet The "Romans" said that too

Matty Parry · 8 March 2013 - 03:17

just wondering if anyone knows any decent sites now uk chatter box is gone for good

Cat Meers · 7 March 2013 - 00:52

I did piss off and find somewhere else actually, i only noticed chatterbox had been down for months when i was changing my passwords on any sites which i was a member of. Why so rude and so defensive of a site that was badly run?

Chris Stanley · 6 March 2013 - 12:14

If the admin and moderators were that bad Cat then why not piss off somewhere else and use a different one? Im sure none of the staff would be losing much sleep over it.

Cat Meers · 6 March 2013 - 12:06

have a little patience? It's been down for months, when it was up it was a fun site to use but the admin/moderators were useless with no respect for the users - mods need to remember a site isn't a site without the punters and treat them with a little respect - for instance the site was often offline for days on end with no explanation given to the people who were regular users of the site and 'we'll be back soon', a message i understand had been up for months just isn't good enough. Either let the punters know it won't be back or tell them when it will.

Chris Stanley · 5 March 2013 - 06:09

or maybe people should try a little patience and just wait. never ceases to amaze me that the majority of site users when it was running found endless reasons to moan and whine about the service, staff, site, anything, but now its down some of the same people are now whining that it isnt running.

James Sjj Blair · 1 March 2013 - 12:37

to everyone guessing on whats happening i will confirm the site wont be back up but i will be making a new site soon peace

Richard Epton · 22 February 2013 - 10:44

I do not think UKchatterbox will never come back, its been down 5 months and before that it was hacked 3 times in the previous month. It doesnt take 5 months to build a chat room and the people who want to feel important saying they 'spoke to adminstrator or owner.' Please stop lying, the site is dead because the security was crap and Im guessing doesnt know how to fix it. I will miss the site but you have to deal with it.

Rinky Dinky Dee · 21 February 2013 - 04:07

So the site is coming back today and according to Sara it's supposed to be up between 10 and 12... Yet it's still on the same page telling us that it's not gone for good. Hasn't it? Looks like it has to me

Kaz Davies · 20 February 2013 - 13:55

i hope it does come back that site and ppl i have met through that site ave become like a family to me

Tom Hayden · 15 February 2013 - 07:39

I am a long time member of UKCB (ukchatterbox) while waiting for the site to come back up I found an alternative home. The site is also based in the UK, the site staff have actually posted an article about UKCB and offering an alternative for UKCB's userbase. You can find the article here:

Annette Virgo · 10 February 2013 - 05:07

hi all well i have joined lycos chat and also tagged both are like ukcb makes me laugh so come on join... there are a few from ukcb there so come on down x

Sara Keri · 10 February 2013 - 02:34

UKCB owner has just told me the site will be returning on the 21st of this month.

Ian Crutchley · 5 February 2013 - 15:37

I did enjoy the mad n daft chat on UK chatterbox but its over now people so f gett about ukcb and get looking 4 a similar chat site more less same or as good as UK chatter box where we AV local chat in my area and other rooms too anybody no any as good or better lett me n rest know as I miss it like CB radio and the time when I could tune in on local police on my old handhellled scanner can't pick em up now sad I miss that stuff its all died now so not no chat sites like ukcb again let me know about similar ukcb chat rooms I look 4ward 2 any info. Love ianx

Jen Smith · 3 February 2013 - 05:45

Think someone is having personal issues. its a chat room. period i look for set up and ease of use and it has both of that. So people need to come on if they are looking for a room to chat in and try it for themselves. My opinion

Emma Williams Stephen · 2 February 2013 - 19:30

theres no chance of it returning load of lies there would of let us all no by now its been months and loads of ppl saying its gonna be bk by this week and that week and the day and turns out it wasnt

Mark Attrell · 2 February 2013 - 18:11

its been closed for now 4 months n it will never reopen up again i just heard it from one of the admin on the site

Jan Horton · 2 February 2013 - 14:06

Thomas thats really sad, I will say no more.. please give us a chance on this chat site, we keep people like Thomas Dolan out, its a clean site and he didnt like that. This will be the last time i make any comments about Mr Dolan

David Mellisia · 25 January 2013 - 08:07

The server was based in the UK when the site was up and running. However now it's based in the Netherlands. I doubt if the owners would have relocated to a different country with a new hosting company if they didn't have any intentions to bring it back online.

Jan Horton · 24 January 2013 - 10:47

The problem is they dont really owe you anything, they left you without warning and im sure they will do it again, I hope you find your friends

Prince Solomon · 24 January 2013 - 07:01

mean this is a total f**k... who's there to tell me what's going on? please i wanna kn what is going on with site. i miss someone dear... who can help me now? this was a wonderful site to put us around the world.. from home. i miss u all.. my friends. i hope some day some time.. they will come back.

Mark Kerr · 23 January 2013 - 07:10

Chatterbox tell us one way or another are you comming back you own us that

Shereen Chapman · 21 January 2013 - 00:19

Had it just been a matter of hackers bringing the site down it would have been sorted out and be up and running again by now. So I think it is a case of the website running out of money and until the servers have been paid it will never come back.

Imran Spartan Malik · 20 January 2013 - 11:42

I noticed its still a bit crap. Btw whats up with the password thing at the beginning?

Annette Virgo · 19 January 2013 - 12:51

everyone try tagged... its the same as chatterbox but u dont chat in rooms i find it interesting... all have ago least u can make friends and have plenty off convo gd luck

Ian Crutchley · 18 January 2013 - 21:49

In my local area I its OK bit like goin down your local pub in it peeps any good. Local chat in s o t. Area bet that ain't lol Mr c I a xx

Eternity Mind · 16 January 2013 - 15:28

Ive just read this... UK Chatterbox; The Movie

Hello all. As you may well know, UK Chatterbox has been down for quite awhile lately. The reason for this being is that the site owners have sold the rights to a German film production company. The as yet untitled movie is set to be based upon the various lives of some of the more 'interesting' chatters that frequented the chat site. Sources on the internet claim that the as yet untitled movie will be a romantic comedy with a dark tone. According to a blog which has since been deleted, the plot for the movie revolves around the dysfunctional relationship between the chatters Woody32 & Lemonpopsical.

We follow Woody & 'Pops' as they chat online, hiding from their true romantic feelings for each other as they interact with several other chatters whom are also seeking romantic relationships with other online maniacs. The film is rumoured for release in Europe in Summer 2014. I for one cannot wait, hopefully the movie will stay true to some of the original chatroom content.

I toast my can of Skol to you all. Cheers! Mindflare

Annette Virgo · 16 January 2013 - 14:38

oh come on chatterbox if coming back please let us know... yes we all miss it tried other rooms but ur the best.... and dont nobody say oh come on nettie get a life well sod off i like chatterbox and yes made many friends so come on chatterbox your rather coming back or ur not let us know then we can go seaching yes the pub

Mark Allenby · 16 January 2013 - 04:41

Jared Jammer · 7 January 2013 - 05:49

Neither the website nor mIRC is connecting for me. Methinks Thomas "Plaid Skirt" Dolan is pulling our leg.

Debby Bailey · 4 January 2013 - 15:22

Ukcb is down and has been since early November 2012. Rumor has it that the site will be back up again... but no word on when that will actually happen.

Louise Thomas · 4 January 2013 - 01:29

every time i go in buzzin chat room its dead.. we sooo miss uk chat, no group compares to that chat site

Clare Earl · 3 January 2013 - 15:48

Thomas Dolan · 3 January 2013 - 09:48

wow lottie a bit harsh don't you think ? and i don't want ukcb back as i run my own room in or on

Lottie Hill · 3 January 2013 - 08:35

Maybe no word from owner because he's too busy trying to bring back a site to keep you happy?

Jared Jammer · 3 January 2013 - 04:36

Thomas, why do you think they've spent all of this time and effort to improve UKCB and fix its security issues if there was no plan to bring the site back?

Thomas Dolan · 3 January 2013 - 04:18

ok folks lets stop kidding ourselfs here about ukcb coming back and its been to long now so i would say it does not look like its coming back.

Jared Jammer · 3 January 2013 - 04:13

Ali, they've put a lot of time and effort into the site in the past six weeks or so. I hardly think they'd do that unless they planned on bringing it back. Couple that with the message on the website, and the things Lottie has said, and I'm pretty confident it'll be back up sooner than later. Just have some patience, please.

Ali Stoke · 3 January 2013 - 00:40

i have been waiting ages to get back on. I expect it will be off line for ever...

John Kelley · 2 January 2013 - 12:19

Im Ok now Tomas!! im calm, i think!! Well im on Medication and every thing, the Doctor say's that there has been an up surge in people attending clinic's across the Country with the same prob's, he call's it UKcb syndrome, its a bit like not getting enough vit D from the sun, iv got to get the lappy out and practice tapping out the A.B.C. over and over so im fit and well for when Ukcb comes back, ? if it dont,, well iv been practiceing high diving at the local swimming pool, should come in handy for when i visit Trent Bridge one night, ilea leave a note promice....

Jamie RabidGrandad Atkinson · 1 January 2013 - 17:48

LOL @ my comment getting deleted..., too greedy brah! ...ukcb was good back in the day like, but then the mods got a bit dodgey like. some of the moderators can be nice really does depend on your relation with them. bob39 tache is always chasing me room too room i do miss that xxx

Pam Oliver · 1 January 2013 - 12:55

it's sooo sad - a site that made me many friends - oh yes - there were the perves, that seemed to increase in latter years. I was on UKchat from 2003, I made many friends. I followed them on their meets from South Africa. I made friends from Canada & Australia - I also made many enemies - the mods being amongst them! Banned for saying what I would... but then - they weren't paid for services, they had their favourites. The best friend I made, was Astangerinblack - I met him in 2008, a very gifted jounalist - he passed in Feb 2010. So thank you UKChatterbox - for the memories

Jared Jammer · 1 January 2013 - 06:59

People, it will be back. Just be patient. They're going to a lot of effort to not only fix the security problems, but also give the sight somewhat of a makeover. I can't give an exact date for when it will be back, but it shouldn't be too much longer. UKCB is a high-traffic website with a lot potential to make a lot of money. The owner's aren't abandoning it, trust me.

Terry Wilkinson · 30 December 2012 - 11:33

to all u people, who are telling people to get a life, ukchatterbox was a lifeline for some people. i myself made some good friends on there. in lots of the rooms, there is some housebound people who went on there just to chat, to them it was a lifeline to the outside world, so please dont knock them.

Terry Wilkinson · 30 December 2012 - 10:29

it says dont worry ukchatterbox hasnt gone away it will be back soon, what does this mean for me, ive been waiting ages to get back on, can sum 1 get in touch with me please and give me some answers

Mark Tyrrell · 29 December 2012 - 23:24

Does anyone really have an insight to how to contact the owner or owners of ukcb so that we can have some clarification as to whether it is coming back or not thanks

Deano Brown · 29 December 2012 - 14:16

Is it really that good? Not so sure it needs such desperation to get it back running again...

Lottie Hill · 28 December 2012 - 02:09

Lynne they've changed the date to reopen it to the 9th/10th Jan.. But then again they said it would be up 2 weeks ago

Lottie Hill · 27 December 2012 - 10:29

Andrew it is coming back.. Don't worry :) Just won't be until next year aha

Jared Jammer · 25 December 2012 - 19:18

"Wonder this time where she's gone. Wonder if she's gone to stay." --Bill Withers, Aint No Sunshine (When She's Gone). I'll never forget you, UKCB. *wipes a tear away*

James Malone · 20 December 2012 - 17:37

saying 4 me its still down whats going on is others back up and running ?

Thomas Dolan · 20 December 2012 - 08:49

well i hope ukcb does not come back as i have a lovely group of people who chat in my room on buzzen site

Bill Mcgrogan · 19 December 2012 - 06:28

mising uk chatter an all my friends hope it come back soon from user name tommy1

Gordon Coomes · 19 December 2012 - 02:55

UKCB is one of the best sites, if it comes back we go on it again. If it doesnt we dont.

Lee Holmes · 18 December 2012 - 18:26

Lol, Thomas, that's a funny action to take for supposed "rumours", it's obvious who/where you're referring to, and the "rumours" are false, supposed "confessions" going around are quite pathetic, most are being shown in a different context to how they were said, which was just the mere fact "people" knew what was happening.

The site's you think have "sprung" up haven't done so just because of UKCB's downtime, my site evolved from a previous site which had its own users, which has been around since '08. That said, it's a chatsite and I don't think anyone gives a shit about your libellous comments or whether you'll use it. I for one wont lose any sleep.

Alyson Larholm Born Ansell · 18 December 2012 - 10:38

I think everyone is on while they wait. We are giving complementary features too :)

Thomas Daniels · 18 December 2012 - 10:22

What's up with UKChatterbox? Is it returning soon? The correct answer is, of course, yes.

If you go to the UKChatterbox website, you'll get a message from the owner saying it's returning. I'm not 100% certain, but from what I've heard, it will be returning sometime this week. You can also expect an improved UKCB; a new, sleeker look, new features, and flash-based chat, which is quicker, more feature-rich, and simply better looking than java.

For those not in the know, UKCB was attacked. The rumor is that it was attacked by the owners of a new, rip-off chat site (whose name I wont dignify by mentioning it), in a sleazy attempt at stealing UKCB's users. Myself and others have actually taken the moral high ground and have boycotted this new site over how dirty they are. Anyway, the new & improved UKCB should be back up soon, maybe by the time you read this, so be sure to check back often.

Lucy Lashes · 18 December 2012 - 07:58

It's saying it is "up" on here because there is a website/page which is responding... which is true... The fact that there is no chat site running on the web site is irrelevant to whether the web server is responding.

Kelly Dewhurst · 18 December 2012 - 04:40

for a start of to many people its not just a chatroom, anyways im having problems getting UKCB up its just says we will be back soon and dont worry UKCB hasnt gone for good is it only me getting this or are other people, because on here it say its up and running. help please :S

Lizzie Mcdoogal · 22 November 2012 - 22:51

Oh for goodness sake, its a CHATROOM, its a FREE chatroom, if its down and out of order GET OVER IT... do something else like stuff in real world. Its really not the end of the world so i can see but obviously some think it is. Am sure it be back when it good and ready, till then get a life. simples.

Jared Jammer · 22 November 2012 - 18:26

What's working against them is two things. One, they are (reportedly) repeat attackers. To do it once is bad enough, but to continually attack UKCB increases the damage done, exponentially. To cause this much harm, arguably irreparable damage, to a website with a whopping two-million registered users is no small crime.

Secondly, they're not really hiding their actions very well. DDoS attacks are hard, but not impossible, to trace, true. However, there are logs and multiple witnesses to confessions. I would have to think that would be a huge boon to anyone seeking legal action.

Lottie Hill · 22 November 2012 - 14:29

Fearnley I think you find we all have.. If you got out the 50s room you would know that. There are loads of different rooms that everyone else uses such as #friendly or #20s. I also love how most the comments have been deleted

Fearnley Heywood · 22 November 2012 - 14:27

all these comment are by people that i have never seen on UKCB so how would they know what is going on, im from the 50 room.

Foxeh Clo · 22 November 2012 - 11:18

I dont think anyones actually sure whats happened, what will happen or anything and its possible maybe someone does know but its been missed with all the rubbish being posted here. I hope for yous guys it does come back, because i can imagine it will be a big part missing from your life. I was never a full on UKCB user but i did lurk around a lot, i know id be lost without my ircd mate though

Katie Jolene Stockdale · 22 November 2012 - 11:16

Ian i know how you feel I am kind of in the same situation as you I have been a member of UKCB for years and I've seen it go down for over a week before and come back so i just hope that it does come back I'm sure it will come back soon :) x

Ian Thompson · 22 November 2012 - 11:12

i would like to know if ukchatterbox is ever coming back? Im not interested in reading about who hacked who, or which website is being attacked or who has lied about MRIc. THis chatroom was my life line and being a carer i dont get a lot of social life. ive made a lot of friends on that chatsite and i miss them a lot. This WAS my social life and i have 2 outside jobs as well and im not dependant on welfare benefits either As i said if its not going to come back then i will move on. It would be nice to be told officially by the boss whoever she or he is.

Foxeh Clo · 22 November 2012 - 10:40

What the fuck is with everyone on here. This was just ment to be a page to discuss UKCB being down, and also i guess for other sites to offer there chat services, why after around a week now has it turned to being a blame game and abuse. isnt involved with UKCB being down, we have much better things to do with our time, as many people have already said, Both Lee and Wakun would have addmitted it if they did take it down, which i would have thought would be highly unlikley. Born2Chat nor WackyChat have ever been hacked, both have been experiencing some server problems throughout the last week or so. The accounts claiming to be Lee and Wakun are totally fake to, they are a guy called Patrick Bell aka Spicy trying to cause a lot of trouble and failing!. Now please, can we all just get back to what this page was really all about.

It's a well known fact the mods don't know the difference between a shit and a piss. The fact I have seen a screenshot from an ex staff member of the owner admitting he is in two minds about continuing it. You want to see the screen shot because I am willing to show you as proof. You see.. Unlike everyone else spreading rumours I can back it up

Joan Whyte · 22 November 2012 - 06:58

well i have been told from 2 ukcb mods that chatterbox is not closing down and we will all know more by the week end and i was given this information lastnight

Ricky White · 22 November 2012 - 05:20

anyways this was meant to be a comments board for ppl to find out the deal with ukcb other sites have posted their addys so they could provide a place for ppl to go till the outcome of ukcb is determined but all some people have done is bitch and moan... i have said stuff but only to put people straight with things they are not clear on :S... this has got out of hand... this is gonna be my last post ! ... :)

Here Here Ian Tompson, one of few comments made on this page worth reading. The vast majority of the rest seem to be inner squabbling name blaming an attacking, I myself was attacked 2 comments down an told i need a job. Its seems the very people claiming ukchatterbox was bad an show pleasure that it is down seem to be same ones attacking an insinuating looking back at the comments here. No doubt the very same abusing trolls here telling folk to get a life its down were guilty of the same behavior rooms then claimed they are bullied. On that subject how can you be bullied on a service that offered block feature im afraid its all attention seeking.. Like I say I feel sorry for people who used ukchatterbox as means of entertainment, communication and company, who have made links 5 years+ who are here to try find out some information in regards to the future of the ukcb chat they are not here to see who got the best server replacement war game nor are most readong interested in the finger pointing to who to blame or who is calling who bluff games. What they find is comments from individuals who seem to be in gleee the service is down which makes me asks questions to that persons/persons mentality upon reading some comments. Do we really need to be told to get a job or a life for missing ukcb. the digital age enhances life it should be embraced not feared in fact the more you integrate the more life you have. I myself look here regular for any news of the chat not to read the tit for tat inner squabble from irc world nor to read people people get off at how unsafe ukcb was gloat its down no doubt they are the very people responsible for making these sites like ukcb a nightmare to mentain .It was only unsafe to the slim look for vulnerabilities the motivation to spoil peoples fun as lets face it anything can be unsafe even a banana can be unsafe used as a weapon if it was rammed it down a throat choke some 1. As I say i feel sorry for the genuine users coem on had abit banter if you didn't like what was said..BOCK. lets hope Ian Tompson its back soon mate.

It would be nice if we could be told if UKchatterbox is ever coming back. I use lycos chat Its not perfect but its free and easy to get into. I use chat as i get very lonely as i am a carer for my wife. so i dont have a life so to speak of. Ive been using Ukchatterbox for many years and have made some good friends But i will move on if neccessay.

Des Robson · 21 November 2012 - 19:50

I will sum the majority of people up from what ive just read. Too many highly inflated egos, too many false agenda, too many dodgy operatives with the Trojan horse gift of "ooh come into my chat room its safe". Stick to lycos/chat folks it safer by ways of at least you know there wont be any of the above riddling thro your pc having tempted ya to join there chat. As for the people responsible for bringing down ukcb.. karma waits its time but never forgets.

Tom Levers · 21 November 2012 - 11:09

Lycos Chat (Noesis Chat) is definately the best and has been around about 10 years. You can login as a guest here:

Donna Lee · 21 November 2012 - 05:38

as part off virtual global taskforce we have shut UKCB down for good. as the new law has come into force stop internet troll bulling

Dawn Garrett · 21 November 2012 - 01:56

Lazarus Long · 20 November 2012 - 21:01

Will Some people please Stop ranting about other Chats it does not good.. What we all want is a nice stable chat Server with lots of Rooms.. Or do you just want to sit and moan ?

Thomas Dolan · 20 November 2012 - 16:07

while you people are going about like headless chickens we are all chatting in a room meeting new friends and having a laugh as last night we had 20 people in and for a room which only opened up on sat we are doing pretty good.

Stacey Varley Lochhead · 20 November 2012 - 15:09

I use Lycos chat or noesis chat whichever you want to call it. I know lots have started using it too and enjoy it. Its a free chat room too and is well looked after :)

Stuart Waterfield · 20 November 2012 - 11:52

why do people keep trying to tell people what to do... chatrooms are for talking, meeting people, making friends, and yes picking people up if they want to, i guess its just the UGLY people who moan about chatiing up... whats wrong no one chatting you up

Mandy Collins · 20 November 2012 - 10:06

why do some morons think uk chatterbox is a dating/sex/pick up site? whenit clearly IS NOT learn to read you idiots

Ricky White · 20 November 2012 - 04:29

I don't get some people who think they know everything lol... born2chat and wackychat are not new sites they've been running for a long while now, so Jamie you say someone got bullied but you have no proof to back you up i've got a great suggestion Jamie if you or anyone else has an issue with the owners on either Wackychat or BornToChat why don't you take it up with them instead of moaning on here about them... But let me say this both sites in question wouldn't allow that to happen to any chatter or owner regarding abuse or bullying... @andrew you say born2chat isn't very good because no one responded to you maybe you didn't think that the staff were maybe busy etc or the site was just quiet at the time.... like i said before people don't have to stay on either chatsites if they don't want to... As for UKCB if the owner was that bothered about it he/she would have posted an update on here about the state of the site and for them to email every single member is just ridiculous... if it comes back fair enough but im not holding my breath that it will... not that i use it anyways... can i remind people that other sites have posted on here to offer people places to go whilst the state of UKCB is looked into, it doesn't mean they are poaching chatters off a chatsite THAT ISNT BOTHERED ABOUT THEIR CHATTERS.... But all i see if people complain about these other sites if you cant get on or dont want to go on there either contact support or just move on somewhere else, IRC sites and other sites won't die off either they have their own chat base and chatters i, e non UKCB chatters, and to be honest least these other sites are doing something for people who want to chat do you see UKCB doing anything about it NO... some people really need to grow up!!

Mitchell Southgate · 20 November 2012 - 03:53

Why not use and not bother worrying about if its a IRC chat. All theses other chats to be honest i see once UKCB is back up if it sorted will just die off.
