So how do you add the address? I have no idea how to change anything like that. My old link doesn't work, typing in gimpchatdotcom doesn't work. GAH. I need to know exactly how/what to put into the address bar to access GC.

Follow instructions on gimp-forum.net.
Add those lines of code to your hosts file.
and you'll be able to access gimpchat.com like you usually do

FYI: I succeeded only after having added the second address suggested by David (108.160.152.117)
(maybe there is an internet "zone" problem IDK)

But attempts on Android (Chrome) and Linux (Thunderbird) devices that have never attempted to reach GC before, both came up with error messages saying the site was not available.

So if novice devices/users cannot reach the site it will probably stay lonely over there.

EDIT well now I can get back into GC; but I reiterate what I said above ... surely anybody typing in gimpchat.com in their browser should be able to access the forum??
Yeah so if you can't change the host file like on windows.... like from Ipad....it's not there... so it'll stay quiet over there for a while yet until whatever problems is sorted out.

I tried and got as far as the page in terminal where you type in the new ip address, but my cursor will NOT go down to where you are supposed to type in. :x
