Registered users have access to real-time chat rooms. You can access the chat through its navigation tab, or the chat bar, which by default, displays at the bottom of the screen for any page on the site. Clicking on the bar expands the chat box. You can change the display of the chat box (to the side panel, for instance) and several other settings if you choose. Help with commands is available in the chat bar.
The main navigation menu displays an notification with the number of current users.
Members who donate have the ability to create private, password protected chat rooms. Members who purchase private forum account upgrades will also be able to create a private chat room for the length of the upgrade.
Members who have the donate upgrade will have access to a few extra perks; view and search the entire chat archive, change font color, and create public chat rooms.
