To begin, press on the "Connect"
button, you will get a form to fill in your user name (any nickname),
real name, email, password - only the user name is mandatory.
Then click on OK and you are ready to chat.
Type in your message in the text box below. By default
your message is sent to all users - to send a message to a selected
user, select on the 'Single user' radio button and then highlight
the user from the users list on the right.
There are several 'Advanced' features that you may
want to try out -
type *chat to get a list of options.
Dont forget the ASTERISK (i.e.*) before the chat
And of course we request you to remember to
keep the discussions civil, in particular avoiding obsceneties
and/or other offensive language. Remember kids read this too.
To screen out obnoxious users, click on the User
name and then click on "Ignore User"
