After the discontinuation of Flash at the end of last year, the UER 'Chat' button has been hanging around on the sidebar for 6 months now. Today, I finally removed it.
AvChat was first developed in 2004, and at the time was one of the first multi-channel, real-time chat systems on the internet. Browsers of the day could not make socket connections, but Flash could, and so AvChat was born.
It quickly gained tons of advanced features: Multiple channels, private messages, and even multiplayer games! And who could forget the wonderful Santabot.
Over the years, thousands upon thousands of conversations have been held on AvChat. There were even people who developed their own non-Flash clients for it.
If you were wondering, the last messages sent via AvChat were:
[1/7/2021 2:18:01 PM] <Bygone_Era> Why is flash working?
[1/7/2021 2:18:04 PM] <Bygone_Era> bruh
[1/7/2021 2:18:37 PM] <Bygone_Era> this is a bruh moment
[1/8/2021 7:22:41 PM] <Haigha> hello anyone still on this forum?
[4/12/2021 5:36:41 AM] <Avatar-X> hello!
Sleep well, AvChat. You will be missed.
