Yep, I went in, too, and nobody was there.

Took me forever to figure out how to get to the chat room. Went to the link for more information and I didn't see any link to it... or explanation of how to get to it.

After about 10 minutes of clicking on links, including "Forums & Chat" where all I saw was the forums, I finally found it.

The link is labeled "Chat" on the blue bar above that says "Log Off" on the left side. The "Chat" option is over on the right side of the blue bar, for anyone else who is as confused as I was.
