123 Flash chat GONE OUT OF BUSINESS no technical support.
Have 123 Flash chat gone out of Business? The answer is now yes! however, me and lots of other 123 Flash Chat Users are left wondering what has happened to the support? and if they are indeed intent on closing down 123 Flash Chat eventually? Well, I did, in fact, contact the chamber of commerce in Hong Kong who send me to a site to check the status of the company TopCMM Software and the company indeed is still active. I noticed about 4 -5 months ago around May time 2015, my tickets were very slow to be replied to and then suddenly just stopped they were not replied to at all, I thought maybe they are on holidays or something but left it longer and nothing, now I have 4 tickets open with varying importance and none replied to.
It seems the site its Facebook page and twitter page are also not being updated. Also, the live chat is no longer manned I have tried at many different times and, if you fill out the live chat form, it just takes you to a form to fill out your email address.
I have asked around and found out that 123 Flash Chat will not be supported any, ore for the time being, I do not know if this is long term or short term, but as far as it goes if you send a ticket as of now to 123 flash chat you wont get a reply. I was wondering if they had indeed gone out of business but it seems not, it seems they have just moved onto other things and have started developing other software. So it seems it could be the end of an era, I have had 123 flash chat for nearly 10 years in fact World of Chat was one of their first customers and probably the oldest still using their software. It is also the best chat room software there is, with as they say many 1000s of customers so it really surprises me that they have stopped supporting this. It is unfortunate that in our 10th year it seems to have ended, I hope someone picks up the software and its users and sorts out its issues soon.
Should you buy 123 Flash chat software ?
For the time being I would say not, as it sounds like people are purchasing and not receiving what they pay for. It would be nice if 123 Flash Chat could send us all some clarification as to what is really happening, as we are currently left in limbo, and I have heard some stories of people losing money when trying to purchase 123 Flash Chat. The idea of people paying for hosting or the software and not getting anything for their hard earned cash leaves a very bad taste in my mouth, as in the past I have lost money in similar ways and it can be really costly to some peoples business. There is also the issue of the buy chat credits too, which owes me and other users hard earned dollars.
The future ?
Well really who knows what is going to happen with seemingly no news, its difficult to anticipate whats going to happen, is this a short term issue ? staffing ? who knows ? As far as it stands long term many people using this software are going to have to look for other options, as if your software crashes or stops working and you need support, or if you have to renew your licence or move servers and validate your licence, currently you cant you are totally screwed. If anyone else has any contact with 123 Flash Chat or knows whats happening long term please let me know ! Woc http://worldofchat.co.uk

Update for Flash chat 2017
I would like to point out there are lots of providers out there now that do provide 123 Flash Chat on a monthly subscription this is, of course, cracked software, and I am sure it’s probably illegal, however since 123 Flash Chat don’t exist anymore I wouldn’t think it would be an issue, especially if you have your previous licences still to hand, so might be worth a Google search if you still want to use the software in future
