The ingame chat hasn't been working all day (and part of yesterday)...for me at least.

when I try to submit something I type, I get the following message:

IRC error:
Couldn't send message
Illegal operation for this state

Other than walking through a red light when crossing the street, I rarely do anything illegal, so the problem must be on the foldit side of the deal :P

Hi Nicky -- I have no idea what might be causing this problem. Can you use a regular IRC client with your Foldit nick and key (to use the key, simply type it in to NickServ, who will contact you automatically). The main chat is in #global.

Depending on whether that works, we'll know whether it's a server or client issue.

Usually this happens after you lost (even for only one second) your WLAN, internet or chat connection.
The ingame-chat (unlike an IRC-client) doesn't reconnect automatically.

Hey guys:
Glad to see the chat is working.

Madde747:
That may be the case. We'll try to get a fix for that if it is. Thanks for pointing it out.

Good to hear, Nicky. The reconnect idea has already been mentioned in another feedback case, so I'll close this.
