So let's get started - Step 1

FAQ #289: How do I create or delete a chatroom?
FAQ #287: What rules apply to the Chat Network?


The FAQs are quite easy to understand and follow, but sometimes we need a little extra to understand them.


This is the first step to take. Go to the chat page. On the right, you should see the following buttons:
  • Chat Now! with the fella what drives you to #devart, the official channel of deviantART.
  • Create a Chatroom :la: and this is what we need!
I'd recommend you to install the plugins what is needed for being on the chatz! :eager:
You can find a link to the plugin, below the Create Chatroom button on the chat page!

Step 2



If you click on it, a new page should appear what looks like this:

You can add a name here, what will be the name of your chatroom. But please remember:

In order to prevent any misunderstandings or misrepresentations on the network,  please do not create chatrooms with "Staff" or "Admin" in chatroom name!

Others things what are good to know:
    You can't use:
  • your own username
  • or others's usernames
  • Group names as chatroom name!
  • It's better to check if there is already a room with the name you'd like to use!

And you can add a description to inform others what your chatroom is about.

Step 3


After you hit the Create Chatroom button, it should drive you to your freshly created chatroom :dummy:

What should look like this:



And you're done! You have your own chatroom!

Not unless you get a chat bot. It can send 'notes' to people who are members of the chatroom. Bot more info on bots, go to botdom.com/wiki/Main_Page

The Founder sets up the channel rules. It is their responsibility.
As for nicknames, there is a nice addon/plugin here: fav.me/d1tltwl check it out! :)

well, I mean do you have to have a chatroom to chat, or can you just join a chatroom without making one?

dekorAdum Featured By Owner Apr 30, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
You can join a chatroom if you'd like to chat. If you'd like to have private conversations, then I'd recommend you creating a chatroom for that where you can set who can enter and who can't. :)
I made a tutorial about that too! You can find it here: [link]
