Chat rooms are open to anyone, anytime. If you want to start a regular scheduled chat on your own, you can do it with just a few easy steps:
1) Schedule your chat in the Calendar (the times will appear as the local time if users have properly configured their time zone in the Control Panel). This will help avoid conflicts with previously scheduled chats, and also will help get the word out.
2) Post the chat times and reminders about it in your forums to spread the word.
3) Click the "Chat" button at the top right of the forum to login and chat using your forum username and password.
4) Happy chatting!
Some moderators hold scheduled chats too, but this is not required. So if there are no scheduled chats for your forum and you want to start your own chats, you are certainly free to do so.
