Chat Room Guidelines:

Our chat is used for conversations relating to support and recovery of excessive gaming issues. It is for excessive gamers and their friends or family.  Please be courteous in the chat room; our chat moderators can access what is said there.

Be cautious! Some chat users may not use the chat room for its intended purpose.  Some may still be actively gaming, people with poor boundaries, or even trolls.  We cannot prevent anyone from creating accounts.  You can pm a moderator (moderator have a bright orange ball next to their name)  if you are having a problem:   Send a private message (on the site, not in the chat room) to someone who is on the site who might help, such as a chat moderator, forum moderator or admin.  You can see who is on the site on the right hand side of each page.

Tips to use the chatroom, technical problems or chat room not working? 

To open the chat room in a new broswer tab or window, do a right click (for a Mac or Apple product, lightly tap the link) blastchat and select "Open in new tab or new window".  You can continue to use this browser window to navigate our site while you chat. If your pop-up blocker is blocking the new window from opening, you would need to open a new browser window manually if you'd like to continue browsing the site while you chat.  You must be logged into olganon.org to chat.

Once in the chatroom, you will see other members who are in there.  

Moderator's have a bright orange ball next to their name, members have a green ball next to their name

Click to 5 in the upper right hand corner of the window to see the other chatrooms.   You have to enter a chatroom to see who is in it. Enter it by clicking on the name of the chatroom you wish to enter.
Only OLGA Members have access to the OLGA Room for closed meetings.
Only OLG-Anon Members have access to the OLG-Anon Room for closed meetings.

The room that you send the message from is the only room that will see your message.

To leave the room, click on the "x" in the right hand corner of the tab of the room that you want to leave.

You can enlarge the text window (where you enter your messsge at the bottom of the chat window), by hovering over the top of the bar directly above the text window.  Your cursor will change.  Click and drag to enlarge or shrink your text window.
