Chat

Displays the chat dialog currently in progress.
  • The right list displays people currently in this chat room. Your nick is displayed as bold. If you select one or more names from the list then your messages (and sounds) will only go to those people. There are two special characters that preceed some names:
    @ indicates an operator that issue commands to control the room.
    + indicates a user with "voice", only users with voice can speak in a moderated room.
  • At the bottom is the input line. You can send a message by typing it on this line. A few basic commands you can enter are:
    /nick newname Change your nickname
    /join #newroom Create a new room or join an existing room
    /action message Sends an action (red) message
    /whois nick Shows you information about this nickname
    /topic newtopic Changes the topic (if allowed)
    /list Updates the room list
    /part Leave a room, but continue with chat session
    /quit Leave the chat and disconnect from the server
    /sound soundname Sends a sound and a message
    Some common sounds are: bell, laugh, moo, crash, flush, knock and whistle. There are more.

Rooms

Displays all the rooms that are currently available. The current topic for the room (if any), and the number of users in the room, are also shown. To join one of these rooms (and leave the one you are in), just double-click on it. If the room list is not displayed it is because there are a large number of rooms on the server. To display the list enter /list. You can also filter the room list using /list filter. For example: /list *teen* will show only rooms with teen in the name.

Session

Displays your current session settings. Allows you to change most of your settings even after your session has begun. Note that you cannot change your email information once you have signed on.

Float

Removes the Java applet from the html page, and places it in a seperate window. This is useful if you want to use your browser to view other pages while you chat. When the Java Client is "floating", the button toggles its meaning and contains the word "Embed". If it is pressed while in this state, it causes the Java applet to be placed back into the page from which it came, or closed if you are not displaying that page.
