A first remark: all who are acquainted with IRC (Internet Relay Chat see also Wikipedia hXXp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Relay_Chat) should have no problems to reach our chat or using our Java chat client or your own IRC chat client. You can skip these short introductions - but please read the last paragraph of this posting!
If you want to use our Java chat client: you must have installed Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on your computer as our client is a Java application.
After that is installed: the first time you'll use our chat the chat client has to be installed, you will automatically be asked to install the client, please do so.
First a few explanations for java chat. On the bottom of that chat windows there are two rows
public > #gaytorrent.ru
private > Status
The two boxes show the chat rooms, you are currently logged in. The public row shows all the public chatrooms you have currently open and where yor are able to chat with our operators or other users. The private row shows all the private rooms you have open and do a one-to-one chat, in which only you and your chatpartner can write and read, no one else can. BTW: all those buttons become red if there is activity in that room.
Currently we have several chat rooms installed:#Gaytorrent.ru
This is our main channel, language english only. The channel's main intention is a support channel where you can ask questions. You can reach this chat room via the Chat button in the blue menue bar on top of every page. If you try the chat for the first time, you have to use this button so the chat client can be installed on your computer.#darkroom
The name needs only an explanation for members who never have visited a darkroom in real life: This is a chat room intended more for chit chat and also sex-chat. Please don't ask support questions here - try support topics in channel #gaytorrent.ru first. This channel can be reached via the menu button Darkroom, also in the blue menu bar.
The following chat rooms are intended are for our non English speaking members:#deutsch
(main language German)#greek
(main language Greece)#chinese
(main language Chinese)#gaymalaysian
(main language Malay)#russian
(main language Russian)#swedish
(main language Swedish)#french
(main language French)
If there is a operator present in one of the above language specific rooms also English is allowed in those rooms. Just keep in mind these rooms are intended for their main languages
You can not reach these chat rooms directly by a menu command, instead in the text entry box enter a command to enter a special channel:
To enter the channel #greek type in the text box (where you usually enter your chat message):/join #greek
a new box in the "public" row will open and the main chat window will show the chat in that chat room. You can switch between different chat rooms by clicking the respective box in the bottom rows (public and/or private)
