    So this was posted under the chat link:
    http://www.realjock.com/gaychat

    Dear RealJock members,

    We regret to inform you that our video chat is being shut down by its parent company AOL. We have done investigation into alternative providers but have not found anything that we felt would work with our business at this time.

    With that in mind, as of Monday, July 8 we will no longer be offering video chat on RealJock.

    We apologize for any inconvenience. On a positive note, we are hard at work on a series of mobile initiatives that we hope will make communicating with other RealJock members faster and better. We'll keep you posted!

    Team RealJock


    It's sad - it's how I met most of the people on the site that ultimately led to meeting in person ...

    This is the end of a lot of connections (and we're not even talking about the sexual ones) between a lot of rj'ers who would have otherwise never started talking to each other otherwise.

    It's a lot more difficult to randomly message people or even for some, using the message boards.

    I tired to end the other thread and just send people over here instead.... keep it in one place.

    Ok so this sucks. We need alternatives people. I got a few suggestions from other people.... will make a new post soon once I check em out. But if anyone knows of somewhere equally as good speak up!

    on mentchats.com you can create your own room and password protect it

    What I don't like is you can make someones cam full screen and it's really clear.

    I don't understand why they couldn't keep a text chat? This is so sad. There is no other gay chat on the internet that I have found where people actually chat.

    Anyone care to describe how a typical video chat got started?

    I'm picturing something akin to ChatRoulette but with much more awkward escapes from the encounter.
    Becoming bored or annoyed with the exchange when you are face-to-face is much more of a problem than with written messaging. How did you handle this?

    My thoughts on this are influenced by my experience so far of receiving IMs here.

    There are guys who urgently want to communicate "hey" and "sup" with you and they desperately need your immediate attention to witness their time-wasting.

    I made the majority of the gay friends I have through the RJ chat. It is sad to see it go. I would of not forged any of those friendships without it. I will definitely miss popping into the chat and checking in with RJers all across the world.

    www.stickam.com was one i was on frequently. But it shutdown sadly.
    I think stickam used something from http://www.advancedvideocommunications.com/index.shtml on their site to run the cams/chats

    Can you still show cam on IM? It's a good way to see if guys to verify it's them besides the verified profiles.

    Good riddance to be honest. The chat has been going downhill for quite some time now anyway. It was either spammers and crazy people or just guys jacking off and no one really chatting. A lot of guys would go on cam but would never even pay attention so it was a waste of time.

    Well... People who like me... can add me on Facebook and Skype:

    Inbox me for details.

    Well, I guess all good things come to an end sooner or later.

    Doesn't mean I have to like it. And like it I don't.

    At the risk of being just another voice in the choir, I'm going to miss being able to jump on RJ chat to see all the amazing people I've met there (and the amazing people I never had the chance to meet). It's made some very lonely nights a hell of a lot more bearable. There's always Skype, sure, but it's not the same. How am I going to make fun of people and their whisperfails now?

    See you guys around, one way or another.

    RJ Chat seems to be running from this link, thanks. I wonder how long it will last? Maybe just until it has a problem that won't be fixed?
