    "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"

    ... I wonder if that means they are working on a mobile app?

    Maybe they'll inundate the forums.

    Oh wow, I did not know this….that sucks. Although I seldom used it, still it was a part of the service. Hopefully they'll find a suitable replacement.

    I've seen in the various threads today about closing chat several people post that have been here for years and had never or rarely posted before, people I've never seen before.

    Me too. Including a least one who posted for a little bit and then had a very entertaining flameout. I was hoping for some more entertainment out of this. :-)

    But seriously, I feel for them, if it's a community it must suck to have it yanked out from under you.

    Part of me wants to say "meh", but I guess if one day I went to RJ.com and got a "page not found" display because the site had been deleted I'd probably freak out.

    i'm a little disappointed. i thought the chat was kind of fun every now and then. and allowed me to meet and chat with folks who weren't as engaged as on the forums. i'm wondering how they're going to bring it back?

    to me, it sounds like AOL gave them the boot because of the nudity. but i don't know for sure.

    Any good alternate sites to video chat? I met some cool guys in that chat room.

    I've noticed a lot of guys joined the site only for the video chat. These guys tend to have blank profiles and/or have never posted in the forums.

    Back in the days when sexual activity was banned in the chat, RJ used to refer people to "Dudes Nude" if they wanted to do that stuff.

    Really, watching someone masturbate with bad lighting does nothing for me. However, if you have some astonishing acrobatic feat of eroticism to show off, by all means advertise here.

    All of these people who "enjoy conversation" with less than 200 posts on over 1,000s of topics, posting about how they miss Chat...
    When they never really actually chatted.

    Irony.

    I rarely if ever found anyone to chat with in that thing. RJ Chat is/was mostly filled with eccentric non jock types, cynical prudes and if not that it was just guys jacking off waste down on cam. Kind of sad that as awesome as Realjock is in the forums, that in chat it was so click-ish and lame, well lame to me at least. Not saying everyone, but that was just my experience. I think I can recall chatting with one guy there who was from LA that seemed like a good experience, but then like most gay chat conversations it just turned into 'top, bottom, how big, do you skype' BS.

    Sigh Men.

    wave saidII think, as evident by the forums, there's more of an interest in this being a hook up site. We'll see.


    Lol, no. Weren't there always penii in the adult chat room?
