Here are some FAQ to help you use the new chat.

The column on the right of the chat window will list the other members that are logged in at the top.
At the bottom, you can see the total amount of users logged in.
Click the green dot next to the member’s username you wish to send a private chat
message to. A popup will appear. Type your message in the text box and click
"Send Private Message".
You can turn sound notifications on or off by clicking the speaker icon at the bottom of Chatroll.
Q. How can I pop-out my chat into another browser window?
Click the Pop-out button on the bottom of the chat to pop it out into another window.
You can pop-out your chat into another window to keep the chat open, even while you browse other windows on the Internet or on the Cancer Survivors Network. Having your chat popped-out lets you keep the conversation going even when you’re doing other tasks online or on your computer.
Please do not remain inactive/idle in the chat room for a long period of time just so you don’t miss any chat conversation. We now permit members to review past chats any time they wish. You don’t even have to have been logged on to CSN when the chats took place. Just click on the chat link to open the chat window and scroll backwards to find earlier chats.
Chatroll is completely HTML-based. It works on all mobile devices. The best way to view Chatroll on a mobile device is to click the Pop-out button on the bottom of the chat. This allows Chatroll to work optimally on mobile devices.
The same CSN terms and conditions apply to use of the chat feature. However, please be aware that when you enter chat, your username will appear in chat along with other members who are in the room. You may only wish to see what chat is like and might feel uncomfortable "saying" anything. This is understandable. Nevertheless, if someone greets you, please be courteous and reply. You can explain that you are only curious about how chat works and are having a quick look around. Once you have done that, if you still don't wish to interact, it is best to exit chat. The longer you stay without participating, the more uncomfortable others will become.

Giving advice or attempting to influence another person's health care decisions, opinions, beliefs, and/or faith is prohibited. And, please, keep it clean! Sexual innuendo, profanity, verbal abuse, and similarly offensive behavior is not allowed.
