Logging On to the Chat Rooms
How to Log On:

Before you can log on to your chat rooms, you will need to register your nickname to receive a password. Your password will work with all of our chat rooms.

After you click on the chat room that you wish to enter on the log on page, the chat room Java will begin to load. Depending on your internet connection speed, it can take a few seconds up to a couple of minutes. After the chat road completely loads, you will see a blue screen and a place to type in your registered nickname:

This Is a Screenshot. This Is NOT a Working Form

Type in your nickname and password then click on Connect. Remember, your password is case sensitive and must be typed exactly as it was registered. For example, if your password is "rosebud" it must be typed in all lowercase. Rosebud or ROSEBUD will not work.

Below the icons at the bottom the chat room screen is the field where you type text that will appear in the chat room. Type your message into the field and send it to the room by hitting the Enter key on your keyboard or the Send button to the right.

At the top of the chat room is a menu bar where you will find the controls for the chat room. If you want to change the size of the text in the chat room, click on the Options menu item, then click on Font Size, for example.

Bold Button   If you wish to BOLD your messages in the main chat window.
Italic Button   If you wish to Italicize your messages in the main chat window.
Color Button   If you wish to change the color of your messages in the main chat window.

Float Button   If you wish to resize your chat room, click on the "Float" button. This option opens the chat room in a separate window. This separate window can be resized and moved about on your screen. Close the window or click Unfloat to return the window to the original Web page. The default size of the floating window is 75% of your screen. Drag a corner or edge to resize it.
