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!

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