Chat Room Regulars

What happened to the old chat room?

The original LG15 chat room operated using an Adobe Flash based web page from Userplane, a company that was recently purchased by America Online (a Time Warner Inc. subsiduary}. The producers of Lonelygirl15 did not benefit financially from this arrangement. Sources such as myspace, friendster, date.com, Honda, and Red Bull use userplane chat services. In order to support the needs of live discussion between fans and characters the producers decided to replace the Userplane solution with software they could control directly.
