Drupal China IRC chat login not working

kyserkess's picture

I have not been able to log in from http://drupalstuff.cn/chat/drupal-china/ in over a week. I always receive the message that my captcha fails, but I type it correctly each time. I cannot hear the audio captcha clearly enough to log in that way. Is everyone experiencing this problem? It used to work before, and now I cannot log in.


hi kyserkess, I have login

hi kyserkess,

I have login irc webchat twice successfully. I have no idea about your problem.

Just tested and it seems to be working for now.

Hi Dany,

Thanks a lot for reporting this issue and it seems to be a bit strange indeed.

I have just tried connecting from the page:
与Drupal社区对话 | IRC聊天室 #drupal-china (IRC webchat link you provided above) and it seemed to work fine, as you could see from the logs-2013-05-22.

I'm not exactly sure I understand the problem you encountered with the CAPTCHA, but feel free to contact me directly if you still encounter any problems with that.
Perhaps, it could be related with a proxy you would be using, or a browser issue, etc...
But from the test I just did with Google Chrome, I managed connecting in less than 30 seconds (and the CAPTCHA worked fine).

Lastly, I would strongly recommend you simply install your own IRC client on your computer and more particuluarly, in less than a few minutes, get yourself fully setup with Google Chrome's great CIRC plugin/extension.

Feel free to let us know if you would have any more questions, comments or issues with accessing the IRC#drupal-china webchat or channels, in general, we would certainly be glad to provide more information or explain in further details.

Thank you very much for your interest and involvement in the community.

Advice taken

I installed circ for chrome, but when I try to connect to freenode, I receive the message "socket error: cannot connect to socket 105" I googled it, but I couldn't find a thing about it. I suppose it has to do with a firewall or my vpn, but I can't fix the problem -- so let's hope this captcha continues to work.
