Explanations and instructions of all things Writing.Com.
Chat can be a great tool for communicating with other members of Writing.com. You can use Chat to relax and take a break from the daily grind, but it can also be useful for bouncing ideas off other writers. There are a few critique groups that use Chat for real-time meetings. There are several pre-made chat rooms to chose from or you can also create your own private rooms.1
To use Chat: find "Writing.com Tools" within the main navigation area on the left side of your screen. Choose "Chat."
Before you enter Chat, you must agree to the following rules:
Chat is available to site members with a Basic Membership or higher.
The "Lobby", our main chatroom area, may not exceed a 13+ content rating. Members who are not 13 or those who may be offended by 13+ content are advised to avoid chat.
Individuals under the age of 18 must be under direct local adult supervision while using chat or any area of Writing.Com.
The chatroom will automatically warn and/or kick you out of the system for flooding messages into the room.
Harrassment of other members, by any means within Writing.Com, is strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated.
All chatroom activity is logged and failure to follow site rules may lead to the loss of chat room privileges and/or sitewide access restrictions.
No chat is "private" and Writing.Com will fully cooperate with any valid law enforcement agency that requests logs and/or chat transcripts.
New rules may be added as needed.
