Chatroom 101

Recommended Posts

It's easy...more and more people show up every day icon_smile.gif:)-->

Thanky Pawtucket, Thanky Rhoda...er...uh...

Lesson 1:

Click on

http://www.greasespotcafe.com/main/chatpara.htm

Type in your name...and password (I use the same ones I use here at the forums)

Click on "OK, Connect!"

You will be led to a limbo room...no worries, only a short stop before the real room icon_wink.gif;)-->

Click on Rooms.

If you don't see one other than "The Cafe", skip ahead to Lesson 2.

If you see another room name...the number of people already in it is in parentheses...click on it and, YOU'RE IN!!!!!

There are some unique features in there, including the long prayed for cup of coffee!!! GS's best icon_smile.gif:)-->

Lesson 2:

If, when you get to the limbo room (the Cafe), and you click on "Rooms", and there is no other room there...Congratulations! You are the first one there and get to be the creator!!!

Yup, twi, eat your heart out, us ex-twi's have been graced with the task!!!

To create the chatroom...double click on the "Rooms"...it will open a window...go to "Create" and type in Greasespot_Cafe.

You will then be thrust from limbo into a chatroom....just hang and wait, and remember...

...if you create it, they will come icon_wink.gif;)-->

Great to see long lost GSers again...

What if you are not registered how do you register. I put my name and a password and it just locks up

you do not need to register or put in a password at this time. I guess you can at the parachat main site if you want to pay a fee, but the room doesn't require it. What do you mean it locks up? Describe what happens.

Hey Wacky, thanks for the primer. I showed up Friday, for a bit, but everyone split! (cept Suz!) sniff sniff...is it my deodorant? icon_eek.gif

I think chat's cool, I always get pschizo using it, but that's just me. Lots of people enjoy it, and that's great. I'm learning the drill, slowly but surely. Might try it again sometime. Thanks again.

Sockster,

I had e-mailed you the first night I was invited by Hope to go in and chat. Did you get the message?

Ya, it's a bit wonky at first, but great to meet those you've been dying to say hi to...

It was exciting... icon_biggrin.gif:D-->

'til the next time...

Teacher, Teacher......What can you tell me about having to pay for my sign in name? I'm hearing some about it, but don't understand it. so far I get that we can keep the one we have now, unpaid, but then anyone else can sign is under same name. If we pay a fee, we can reserve our name........? Whom do we pay, etc etc. Thank you. (can I go to the bathroom?)

When you leave the chat room, you should log off rather than just closing the window. I think that is why some people appear to be in the room after they have said goodnight.

No, Chatty, you were not there, it was Lindy, Flysweet and someone else at 11:00 mtn time that still showed up on the list.

If you didn't log out when you left, then maybe I am wrong about why people still show as being in the room. Maybe it issomething to do with "Always on" connections and not logging out?

Not a big deal, just an observation to make for less confusion in a popular place. Sure is fun to see people there and get away.

HAP, you are correct cause I don't log out I just click on the X.

Lindy, sorry I left so soon after you came in last night, needed to do some stuff.

Maybe I will see the Sugar Hill Gang tonight.

Great to get to know yall better, even if Herb likes to mess with my head. icon_biggrin.gif:D-->

No one started a new room... the chatters who are there are in The Cafe - and it doesn't work. I started a new room just now.

Psalmie,

I am about 80 per cent sure this will be the chat room we stick with. I will let you know definitively within a week

I am going to be trying one other option this week.
