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) 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.

To see who is in the chatrooms, click the "Participants" in the upper left hand corner of the chatroom (underneath the meeting room name).

To use chatroom - Go to the bottom of the chatroom, where it says Type and send message box. Type in message and hit enter on your keyboard to send it.

Enter the chatroom 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, close the tab of the room that you want to leave or click where else you want to go, on the website.
