Frequently Asked Questions
First of all, how do I login?
You can login as a guest just by clicking the Connect button on the login screen. Or, you can also use a nickname by typing it in the Nick box. If the name has been registered (see below) youíll also need to use your password.
How do I change my nickname?
Double-click your nickname in the Your Roomies list. Change your name and click Submit. If itís a registered name youíll have to enter a password or choose a different name.
How do I send a private message to another user?
Double-click the personís nickname in your list of Roomies then click Private Chat. A private, one-on-one session opens, and you can send your PMs from there. Easy, huh?
How do I create my own chat room?
The easiest way to do this is click the List Rooms button. Type the name of your new chat room in the box at the bottom of that window and click Join Room. Alternatively you can use the
/join command. Type
/join #your-room-name +s. If you include the
+s key at the end the room is automatically set to ďsecretĒ and will not be visible to other chatters.
How do I register my nickname/chat room?
By registering your nickname you can always log in as yourself. You can also register a chat room youíve created and keep it as yours. Click the Options button then click the appropriate registration button. Follow the onscreen prompts and youíre registered.
*Guest is asking, "How do I post like this?"
To make a third-person post, just type
/me followed by your statement. The
/me will be replaced by your nickname so check to make sure it makes sense before hitting send.
