TAB with @ (mobile users)

New Feature For Mobile Users

 

As you know, you can't use the TAB key on a mobile device to select a chatter's name.  But now you can use @ to bring up a list to choose from.

It's really easy to use, simply type @followed by the first couple of letters in a chatters name and a list will pop up showing you chatters in the room who match, click/tap the name that you want to use. 

You can use this to

  Make the line stand out on the chatter's screen by including their name

  Select a chatter's name in emotes

  Send a PM to a chatter by using /tell <chatname> <message>

  Anywhere else that you need to select a chatter's name

 

 

Happy chatting and @-ing!

 

PS, this also works on desktop too but it's not as convenient as the TAB key


We Stand United #blacklivesmatter

Here on chat we are proud of the fact we welcome anyone, regardless of race, colour, religious beliefs, gender, sexuality and so on.

 

We support the Black Lives Matter movement, because despite it being 2020, as has been shown recently, to some, Black Lives don’t matter.

 

It’s all well to say All Lives Matter, and yes they do.  But the term redirects the attention from Black lives, who are the ones in peril.  The term discounts and diminishes the focus on the violence and discrimination Black individuals face.

 

So join us in saying #blacklivesmatter



 


It's not peer pressure, it's just your turn.

Chat Update!

Another small update was released today.  This time it's mostly behind the scenes stuff but there are a couple of changes that you should know about:

 

Some older Chat profiles don't have a validated email address associated with them, if this is the case with your account you'll be asked to go through the validation process when you next login.  Don't worry, it's easy to do!

 

We've made some improvements to our emails to increase the chances of them arriving in your inbox. Hotmail/Outlook users may find that some Chat emails get placed in their spam/junk folder but the email still gets delivered to your email account, you just have to go looking for it.

 

Happy chatting

Since the chat has not permitted under 16s on the chat for a number of years, and all of our existing youths have grown up and now able to enter all of the other rooms, we have decided to remove the Youth Deck and associated rooms.

Kind Regards,

What is a Navigator?

Navigators are chatters who volunteer to spend a lot of time helping out and keeping order on the chat.


The ideal Navigator knows every little secret on the Chat, he or she is extremely patient, both when helping out newbies and when dealing with occasional trouble.


Only very experienced chatters become Navigators, so if you feel like helping others and want to help make the chat a nice place for everyone, it could be just the challenge for you.

How to become a Navigator

Would you like to be a Chat Navigator?

Before answering this question there are some things you should know.

Being a Navigator is not an easy role to fulfil. It is demanding, takes hard work and dedication and a lot of online time. Despite this, it's also great fun. Many navigators much prefer it to being a chatter.

  1. As a navigator you're an ambassador for the Chat. This means that chatters watch everything you say and do. Behave inappropriately, and it gives all Navigators a bad name. Being helpful at all times when on and off watch, shows what a great team we are.
  2. Navigators are the first people new chatters meet and their most important task is to make sure that these newbies have a good experience the first time they are on board.
  3. Some chatters will see it as their job to try to wind you up. If they succeed, they win. If they don't, everyone wins :) Therefore you have to be helpful and patient when people ask you a question. As a Navigator your behaviour should be spotless on the chat at all times.

If you are the kind of person who gets emotional easily, then being a navigator may not be for you. You must be objective always; NEVER taking sides, even when your friends are involved, and always play devils advocate. Never make assumptions.
You must be able to keep confidences, both chatters and other Navigators may come to you with problems. And you will also be the first to find out about new things too – you must be able to keep these things close to your chest! Having the patience of a saint too is necessary! Some chatters take a while to help, and you need to ensure that your personality can cope with these demanding times.

You should also ask yourself, Am I a team player? This is a very important question as the Navigator system can only work with a team spirit. All ranks working together for a common goal.

All this said, being a navigator is very rewarding. Just ask any of our existing Navigators and they will tell you that nothing beats the feeling of when you help a chatter or solve a dispute and receive a huge Thank you.
So, still interested? Then you also need to meet the following criteria.
  1. You must have been a chatter for at least 6 months.
  2. You must have a minimum chat rank of Midshipman (although exceptions may be made by Chiefs).
  3. You must have a clear chat record, with no serious bans/behaviour issues in the last 6 months.
  4. You must also have completed the 5 standard chat quests. /sing, /shout, /whisper, /sleep, /love.

    If you are a former navigator ranked 3rd or above and wish to return to the team on any name, please contact a chief navigator to discuss your options.



If you meet the criteria above, you can apply to become a navigator. Depending on the recruitment needs, you may be approached directly, you may be able to contact a 1st or Chief Navigator and express interest, or you may have to take the exam, or any combination of these. We reserve the right to change the recruitment methods at any time, and this is at the discretion of Chief Navigators.

If you would like to be a navigator, and do not qualify yet, then take this time to get to know everything there is to know about the chat. The more you know, the more you'll be able to help others.

Keep an eye on the bridge for opportunities to join as a navigator!
