How do I join a chatroom?

:police: First of all I'd like you to read the rules regarding Chatrooms!
:pointr: FAQ #287: What rules apply to the Chat Network?

Read that carefully before entering an official or even a regular channel!

In order to join a chatroom, you may want to go to the chat page.
deviantART's official channel is #devart which is moderated by Community Volunteers and $taff.

To go to that channel, click on the green button with fella on it!

I'm in a channel and I'd like to join another!

There are some ways to do that!

  • The most easy way
    If you know the name of the chatroom you'd like to join then all you have to do is type in the following command:

    /join channelname
  • :note: The /join command opens the new channel in a new tab so you don't have to have a bunch of browser tabs open AND a bunch of different connections to the chat network!
    We recommend you to use this command as it makes it easier to track which room you are in because you can see all the tabs in one browser window vs multiple browser window

  • From a chatroom
    On the top, next to the tab of the chatroom there should be a + More button!

    If you click on that, a window like this should pop up :)
    From there, you can simply select the one you'd like to join :la:
  • Searching for a channel
    On the chat page, if you scroll down, there should be a Search bar for chatrooms!

    Simply type in something!
    For example: Photography. All photography related channels should be listed there, but don't forget to edit the numbers too! If you select 0+, all empty room should be listed.

I heard you could put a limit on the amount of people you can put in a certain chat-room. Is it true and if so, how?

You can by creating a custom privclass and promote only those who you'd like to be in the room and take the priv of joining from the Guest class.
That is how I would do it, not sure if there is an easier way to it.
