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.
