In this post I want to give some background on Chat27, and maybe address some questions and misconceptions that might pop up when people visit this site.

This website is not about making new chat rooms popular. It is about facilitating access to chat rooms that have done the legwork, gone through the teething process, came out on top, and already have a loyal following. Why? Adding chat rooms with very few chatters will simply frustrate new chatters that connect to it, they will leave immediately. The room will not have the opportunity to grow, and do us more damage than good in the end for having so many redundant chat rooms. We do not have an advertising budget, and thus rely solely on referrals to chat rooms worth chatting in.

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.
