Some of our members have asked about chat so this is to help you out a bit.
First of all, to enter chat just click on the 'Chat' word in the blue bar above. That will open the chat window for you. Sign in with your name and password and choose the room you want to start in. Click on that and you will be sent to that room.
GREAT HINT -> If you want to read posts while you wait for someone to enter the room you're in click on the little red and white "!" (exclamation point) button that's just above the 'send' button. Then, leave the chat window open and return to reading posts or doing other work on your computer. This button will make it so that when someone enters the room and types a chat message to you the chat page will come to the front of your screen. After typing a 'Hello' message you can go back to what you were doing and then if someone wants to chat with you all they have to do is answer your message. The Chat room will pop right up for you to answer. Neat, Huh?
If you want to speak privately with a member in chat just click on their name in the list and follow the directions. When you want to post to all in the room again, just click on the word 'Users' at the top of the list. If you want to change rooms click on a room from the list.
Also, don't forget to click on the 'sign out' button between the little printer icon and the question mark. This makes it official that you have left the room. This completes today's lesson on Chat 101.
