The link at the top of the forums *JAVA LIVE CHAT* randomly links me into a fake Facebook page asking for information to "make me a millionare". (Yeah sure Smile)

It also links to a blank page sometimes, ww12.goldeneyeonline.com.

I can't access the IRC chat unless someone else gives me the proper link.

Download an IRC client like mIRC, connect to the quakenet server and join the #goldeneyeonline channel.

There you go, same chat.

I'm able to get to it through other links and programs as you said, but it's still no good to have a scam link on the webpage and it'd be better if it gets fixed.

It's unfortunate that goldeneyeonline was not kept registered as it appears to be used for spam. I asked GE Master about this, you can read his response here http://www.shootersforever.com/forums_message_boards/viewtopic.php?p=64402#64402

If a admin could change the JAVA LIVE CHAT link to https://kiwiirc.com/client/irc.quakenet.org/#goldeneyeonline it would help many newcomers instead of being redirected to a phishing facebook page.
