There are just a few things you ought to know about that will make the new chat room more enjoyable.

It is easier to read and follow a chat room if each person selects a unique color for their own text.  Since there are only a limited number of colors, you may end up sharing colors.  That is okay.  It will still be easier to follow.

To the left of where you type your text, you will see a color grid.  DOUBLE-CLICK on a color to permanently select it.  If you change your mind, you can always double-click on another color any time.

If you single-click on a color, or one of the 4 text modifiers (see next bullet), a strange set of characters will show up in the box where you type your text.  These strange characters will not appear in your posted message.  Any text you type in that comes AFTER that strange set of characters will appear in the color or text option you single-clicked on.  If you then single-click that same color, again strange characters appear which will not print, and everything you type after them reverts back to the original color.  In other words, single-clicking is like an on/off switch.  First click turns the color or text modifier on, second click turns it back off.  Also, instead of turning it off, you can turn on a different option to take its place.

Note:  any single-clicked item will no longer be set once the message is sent.

Next to the colors are 4 text modifiers (see single-click action bullet above for how to activate).  These are:
B = bold  (on/off)

= underline  (on/off)

R =   (on/off) for
reverse colors

N = Normal Text (on).
When a "non normal" text option has been selected, this will turn that feature off for the rest of the line.

Note:  You may also double-click on a text modifier to set it for extended use.  It will remain set until it is double-clicked again.

- allows you to change options for this session.  We recommend you do not play with these options.  We do not have sufficient documentation on them, yet.  If you do enter the sessions window, please do not press the "quit chat" button in the bottom right hand corner.  That exits you from the entire chat.  Please exit by pressing the Windows button "X" in the upper right hand corner of the Sessions window.

CHAT - Brings you back to the chat room, should you end up someplace else after pressing one of these buttons.

FLOAT - PRESS THIS PLEASE!!  This will open the chat room up in a separate window by itself.  That window can then be maximized by pressing the Windows button in the top right corner of the window, which is just to the left of the "X".  You may need to press this button twice.

If you prefer the smaller view, the float button turns into the Embed button in the new window.

EMBED - only visible in the "floated" window.  Turns floating off.

- gets you to this page.

Although we would prefer you stay with us for the entire chat, you may  want to say something privately to someone.  Find that persons nickname in the right side of the screen and double-click.  A private chat window will pop up.
