Private chat

Many of you, I'm sure, have discovered that there is a chat room feature on this site. To access it just click on "Chat Room" under the word "Main" on the home screen.

What you may not know is that there is also a private chat feature which allows you to chat privately with another member.

To do this go into the main chat room. On the left will be a list of all of the members that are currently online. Move your cursor over their name an a drop down arrow appears on the right saying "view profile" or "start chat". Click "start chat" and you will have started a private chat with that person.

That person will receive a notification that you have started a private chat with them. Keep in mind that just because it shows a person is online it doesn't necessarily mean they are available to chat.

If you really would like to chat with a particular member you may want to send them a private message requesting that they be available on a certain day and time.

It is also possible to have a couple of private chats going at the same time, although for me it would be really confusing! :)

Good job, Trish...This will really help the members that would like to have a private chat.

Wonderful information for everyone. Thank you! :J
