Thank you!

It won't let me sign into the lounge/chat here, it says 'authentication failed'. But I know that's my password and I'm logged into the site. I'll let you know if it starts working.

the authentication failed bug.. I've gotten that a few times as well.

The login for that is different than your reddit account. Try your password being the same as your username. If that doesn't work, there's supposed to be a random password that was generated for you... you're ideally never supposed to see that login screen on the chat widget. I was having this problem too. I don't know what triggers it. You can create another user account and it should work again, but that's just a temporary workaround.

/u/d3rr I know you've got an awful lot on your plate right now, but this person could use their the Lounge password please. Thank you sir.

And thank you oodles for reporting this issue, we'll get this ironed out. And please do let me know if you get it working.

i just connected via a stand alone client. (atm irssi, thinking of using hexchat or weechat) does that count as "get it working"?

maybe add a little more info to the sidebar? like alternate ways of connecting to the irc channel.

the channels are hosted on irc.foonetic.net

/join #C_S_T[ae] to talk

had to do a little web search to find this out :3

i assume the chat widget is pretty much copy&pasted in. it throws a "Too many connections from your IP" error... maybe the widget loads twice and i can only see the 2nd one? idk...

Oh thanks for posting that info, that is a good idea to have those addresses available.

alerting /u/d3rr who might be interested in reading your comment for the bug diagnosis.
