This is a quick guide to using the new IM and Chat beta launch.

Rooms Tab:
The global-chat is open to all registered fans.

There is another room that is reserved for users of a certain level, and you'll also see that in the Rooms tab. In the past, we've had a few random people come in and hit on the people in the chat rooms, so the reserved room should be relatively free of such riff-raff.

Contact Tab:
Setting custom status messages: click on the pencil, and type away!

Turning off chat: Click on the bubble next to "I am online" and click on the red "Log out" option on the menu.

Contacts are your mutual fans that are currently online *and* signed into chat. You need to be mutual fans to see each other on chat.

Notifications:
Your browser may ask you to allow Fanpop to send you notifications. This will pop up a small window in the corner of your screen if someone sends you a message and lets you see messages without having your Fanpop browser tabs in the foreground.

Okay, first off, that title is a lie.

Based on the way things are going with the new club update feature so far, I thought we could use some guidelines. These are not official, they are merely suggestions on how to decide on a new icon or banner as a team. Only large clubs have the new suggestion options, so there are thousands of people there whose opinions count! (Not that smaller spots aren't valuable, you guys rock just as hard.) The suggested steps for changing a club's look are the same up until Step 3 for both large clubs with the new poll feature, and smaller ones with user-run polls for change.

It's important to remember that fanpop is a community, and should do things as a group. Randomly starting a poll for a new icon, banner or background is rude to other club members. Making icons and banners takes time, and the first options (likely made by the person who started the poll) are given the unfair advantage of being there the longest. Early voters aren't likely to check back in every day to see if new options have been added. Following these steps will help ensure that everyone has a fair chance to participate and that all options are...

Ten years ago, Fanpop made its presence on the Internet and people joined the site one way or another. I first found out about Fanpop when I did a Google Image Search on "crying sonic". That was back in May 2010, in which I signed up for the site as CHILDISHY; now I use my ReptarZolo account to match with my current DeviantArt account. All those years, Fanpop became cluttered with various types of violative content, including and especially pornography. With only four admins, I don't believe Fanpop will last any longer; this can be prevented if the admins promote some users, preferably those they trust, to become moderators and help clean up the site.
