Chat with CoP-MfDR members

Have an instant online dialogue with other members who are online. Simply click on the "Chat Now!" button below. If you are a first time user, please scroll down for instructions.

Note: you will need Java Virtual Machine to chat. Download it for free from the Sun website.

Chat Instructions for first-time users:  

Step 1:
Make sure you are signed in (you will see your name in the box at the upper right corner of the page. If you see the "sign in" link instead, please sign in so that you can chat).


Step 2:
Once you have clicked on the "Chat Now" button above, a popup window will appear showing you the names of members who are online (there will be a green square beside the names of members who are currently signed in).

Note: Some browsers may warn you that you are trying to open a popup window. Please click on the option that allows your browser to display popups.
Step 3:
Double click the name of the member you would like to chat with. Another popup window will appear where you can type in your message. Click on "Send" when you are ready to send the message to the other member.

You can also invite other members to join your chat session by clicking on "Invite others..."

At the bottom of the window, you will see the status of the person you are chatting you, such as "waiting for response" or "typing a response."
Step 4:
When the other person has sent a message back to you, you will see it in the main screen under your initial message. This is how you can conduct an ongoing conversation online. To end your conversation, click on the "Close" button.

Note: You will not be able to save your chat conversation, but you can copy the conversation by highlighting all the text and pasting it into another program, like Notepad or Microsoft Word.
