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 随意 people come in and hit on the people in the chat rooms, so the reserved room should be relatively free of such riff-raff.

Turning off chat: Click on the bubble 下一个 to "I am online" and click on the red "Log out" option on the menu.

Future versions will have tabs to 显示 current highest ranked fans, active 粉丝 who joined longest ago, and hand-picked featured fans. Got ideas? That's what 评论 are...
