Using TPC's Chat

Tea Party Community's chat feature includes:

- Online/Idle buddy list.
- User to user private message.
- Public general chat.
- Video chat with friends.
- Popout of all chats.
- Turn off chat / appear unavailable to chat.

Online/Idle buddy list.
When logged in, you can see an active list of all your friends who are online. If a friend has been inactive or a while, they'll appear as idle with a half-moon indicator.

User to user private message.
You can chat with a friend in real-time with our instant messaging system. We use live communication relay servers to make sure your replies appear instantly.

Public general chat.
Feel like hanging out and talking with anyone on the site? Click on the "multiple people" icon and click "General Chat" to enter the public chat room. Anyone can join the chat! The more people that use it, the more fun it'll be.

Video chat with friends.
In a private messaging IM conservation, you can click the "cog" icon at the top right of the conversation box to see different conversation options. To start a video chat with your friend, click the "Start a Video Call" button. You'll have the option of allowing only your mic and not your webcam if you're webcam shy.

Popout of all chats.
Have too many chat windows? Condense them into a user-friendly list-view layout by clicking "Popout all conversations" button in the upper right of any private conversation box to open the new popout chat window.

Turn off chat / appear unavailable to chat.
Going rogue? On the main "Chat" box, click on the "cog" icon in the upper right hand corner and unselect "Available to chat" to appear offline. You can also click the "Hide chat" icon on the far bottom right of the page (the green switch).
