Wow. I'm shocked The Palace is still alive. I spent so many hours on this platform. Lots of memories, friends made and lost, and nostalgia here. Almost brings tears to my eyes to think about it. Hopefully it's still relevant in this day and age.

There won't be any buying of the software, it'll be free like it is now from pchat.org :)
Elitepalaces.com has great hosting which isn't very expensive if you're looking to run your own server. Of course you can make your own rooms and such at pretty much any server.

I am so happy that The Palace was saved! I was on it so much back in the 90's and would make a lot of different Palaces. If it does become available on Steam, would buying the software include server costs? OR can I host my Palace on my own site? I will look further into those questions but thank you for staying alive!!

Developer needs to talk with Steam. I searched multiple times for "PalaceChat" in the Greenlight search bar 0 results were returned. It only popped up after I clicked "Most Recent" and then clicked "Relevant" again.

That being said, I am so happy that this chat program is still around!

"CURRENT RANK #24 OF 1,810 SOFTWARE TITLES IN GREENLIGHT"
Just a copy-paste from the item stats as of the time of this post
(Though I think that's pulling the 1,810 from something else since there are 123 software titles right now)

This could revolutionize digital communication if it were on the workshop.

I don't understand the hesitation. These comments indicate this product. Steam files this as a utility but is mentioned as a game after voting.

"Let the developer know why you're excited about their game." But this is filed under a utility, not a game.

This utility crates interaction on a personal and safe level. Even if you use it once you understand why it's so addicting. I had this built into my PC when I received my system from Microsoft itself. What else do you need? Affiliates? Look into it's history.

Steam needs to utilizing the steam - isn't that the category?

My god..thepond.org is still up on this, just as I remember it some 20-ish years ago.

I grew up on this way back when, Starting out at the Fox TV one, Then Mansion, then eventually made my home at ThePond. So many great memories. I remember when the Second Generation of Palace users first appeared--All the Kiddos with "Sk8r" av's, You were cool with an edgy animated-gif spawn version, or one with animated gif bling/sparkles

Sure, if you never used this in its heyday, It pales in comparison to SL, FB, Skype and all that jazz..but back then, This was it.
