@aninjapooperscooped you can't use IE8 with the chat, you need to update to a more modern browser like Chrome or Firefox, but even IE9 works.
I am using a college university's connection and no, I haven't always had this problem. It just started happening to me yesterday but I could talk to people every day before then, which really isn't a long time. I have been on here only about 4 or 5 days.... the join date is wrong though. I didn't just join yesterday. I joined even before the release of Borderlands 2
Edit: Nevermind, damn chat isn't working at all now..... Though I found something else. Even if I'm logged in, my name doesn't appear in the chat menu as well
