Other useful things to know

  • If you haven’t figured it out by now, click on someone’s nickname in chat panel’s nickname list and choose “message” to send them a private message.
  • Choose a nickname as original as possible to avoid finding that “Nickname already in use” message
  • UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you give ANY private information like your precise location or telephone numbers to someone you’ve met on here. If you’d like to stay in touch with someone you’ve met in a room, we suggest you make regular appointments to chat here. Please be careful. Click here for more chat safety tips!
  • The general rule is: Respect others and they will respect you. Do not choose an offensive nickname or make a nuisance of yourself, and you’ll be fine. If someone else is giving you a hard time, there’s the “ignore” option when you right-click on their nickname in the list.
