    GTPlanet's chat room will be removed from the site on Sunday, October 14, 2012, at approximately 11:00pm ET (that's 03:00 GMT on Oct. 15, convert this to your local time zone here).

    Why is the chat being removed?
    The chat is hosted by a third-party service, which is very expensive for me to maintain. Combined with ongoing abuse, technical problems, and a lack of functionality, I have decided to not renew my contract with the service.

    Will another type of real-time chat return to the site?
    Yes, I currently plan on introducing more modern chat system for GTPlanet, though I can't yet offer a specific time frame on when that might be.

    I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If a chat room is necessary for organizing your online racing series, contact me via private message for available alternatives.
