About Java Chat
If you haven’t figured it out by now, double-click on someone’s nickname in the Java Applet’s list to send them a private message, or right-click on a nickname in the list to see your options.
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.
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 his/her nickname in the list.
