Chatlands™ 2D Avatar Chat - World Headquarters!  

HAPPY THANKSGIVING
November 23th, 2017


Happy Thanksgiving, Chatlands!

Although I know other countries celebrate this on different days, to those celebrating it today, I hope you are having a chance to re-connect with your friends and relatives and that it's a great day.

In other news....

We are about to see NET NEUTRALITY get taken away from us! Many people feel that this will be quite bad for small sites like Chatlands™, because it will mean that bandwidth will suddenly become a "commodity". Small sites like ours don't have to pay extra to get the same benefits as larger ones do now. But, that will be changing soon. Help us fight this!

Visit this site for more information, scroll down, and watch John Oliver discuss the impact of Net Neutrality.

“I personally, the position of my administration, as well as a lot of the companies here, is that you don’t want to start getting a differentiation in how accessible the Internet is to different users. You want to leave it open so the next Google and the next Facebook can succeed.” -President Obama

ALSO... I finally finished installing the no-flash version of Chatlands on the site (a couple of days ago). After a bit more time to find bugs, I'll be making it the default behavior for all users, but until then, you can switch to the no flash version by checking the 'no flash' option in your user profile.

CHATLANDS™ REGISTRATION CHANGES
July 23rd, 2017


We are changing the Chatlands™ registration policy.

Some people have been using disposable email in order to "ban hop" on Chatlands™. There's also "Hotmail" and other Microsoft email servers that delete what they consider spam, rather than putting it into a "spam" or "junk" folder. This means that the user has no idea that they received that email. This makes it impossible to validate your Chatlands™ account. For these and other reasons, we have decided to require that when registering for a new account only the following email domains will be accepted.
aol.com, gmail.com, icloud.com, me.com and yahoo.com (including yahoo's international domains)
We will update and expand this list from time to time. If you don't already have an account with one of these email services, you will need to create one first (it's free) before you create your Chatlands™ account.

Note: This only applies to new accounts. If you registered with some other email address, you can keep using that one. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we feel that this will help us to provide a more pleasant experience for all users on Chatlands™. Thank you for your understanding.



If you want to help Chatlands™ grow, please tell your friends!
