Welcome! If you are here, it means you
are presently using the web's finest, online chat service. This online chat
program includes features such as multiple subrooms, customisation, audio,
emoticons, private messaging, profanity filtering, and many more!
To log in, simply enter your username/handle in the text box located at the
bottom portion of the applet. Certain restrictions are imposed on usernames,
and they must be 15 letters or less in length.
To communicate in the chat room, you merely need to type text into the
little text box towards the bottom of the applet, and press Enter to send
your message. Your message will appear in the content (larger) box above it
when it is received by our server. Others may then read what you have typed,
and respond to you. If you wish to get another user's attention, simply type
in their name somewhere within the message that you are sending them. Their
message will appear in a different colour, and a sound will be played.
You can access the list of smilies by
right-clicking on the typing box, i.e. the place where you type you text. From
there you can choose any of our graphic emoticons.
Audio Emoticons work similar to graphic
emoticons, except instead of displaying an image, they play a sound for all to
hear! To access the list of emoticons type the code or right-click on typing box
(where you type the text) and choose from the list. If the Audio is disabled you
will be needing to enable it by right clicking in the main chatting window.
You may change
the size of your font by accessing the right-click content menu.
To do so,
right click on the content area (the area
where messages are displayed) and a small menu will appear. Select "Font
Size" to show the font selections allowing you to change your font size.
Available options are Very Small, Small, Medium, Large, and Very Large. On
certain systems, the Very Small font is identical to the Small font. After a
font selection is made, the content area is reset.
You may change
the colour of your text by clicking on the Colours
button on the front of the applet, or
by accessing it via the right-click content menu. After clicking on
"Colours", a small popup dialog will appears allowing you to change (using
scrollbars) the red, green, and blue values of your text. The current text colour
will be shown in the text portion to the right of the scroll bars.
Adjust the red, green, and blue scroll bars to suit your preference, then
Chat Room recognizes various commands.
You will notice that these commands are IRC-like in nature. Macros allow you
to quickly perform some of these functions by reducing keystrokes.

Operators and Administrators
Our chat room is being watched by a
group of volunteers. There are there different groups of people with
administrative privileges. They are Chat Operators, Forum Moderators and
Administrators. Administrators are the ones who can make someone an Operator
(OP). In order to become an Op you will have to have good reputation between
visitors and other operators. The intention to become an operator should be
of helping the chat room to keep the warm and calm atmosphere. You will
never get an Op if you ask us for it more than just once. You can always
apply for an Op by contacting Webmaster.
Administrators have a full right to reject your offer without any
