If you’ve been reading all of the blog entries we’ve been posting which are designed to provide you with the latest tips and tutorials on how to run this software then you should know some information about the community chat feature built into the client. However, do you really know how to get started with using it? Some people don’t, which is why we’re going to cover this in this blog post. Read on if you want to know more.
Of course some of you may not know anything about this feature so we better explain a bit more about it first of all. FrostWire has a feature will allows you to communicate with others through various different chatrooms. You can meet new people, talk to existing friends, ask about which files should be downloaded at the moment and anything like that. You can even go into specific chatrooms if you want to talk about a subject specifically rather than a general conversation with everyone. Now we’re going to explain about how to get started.
The first thing you’re going to need to do is create a nickname. Note that this does need to be unique because it’ll be the name that everyone else sees and will identify you as a person, but at the same time don’t use any personal information in this for security reasons. You can set a nickname by going into Tools –> Options –> Community Chat and then entering it into the text box. An alias is a good idea, maybe something that you like or something that you can call yourself which other people won’t know is you as a person. This is an important step to take so think about it carefully.
When you’ve entered your nickname, you’ve done the majority of the work. All you need to do now is to connect to the chat network and then choose a chatroom which interests you. You can do this by going into the Community Chat tab in the main software and then pressing the “Connect” button. Just wait a few seconds while you’re connecting to the server and you should find that the general chatroom is loaded for you. You then have the choice of staying in there and talking to people or choosing another chatroom to talk in, which you can do by clicking on the “Chat Rooms” button and then selecting the one that interests you from the list.
After you’ve done what we’ve told you, you should have completely set up the community chat feature. Whenever you want to go back into it you don’t need to mess around with selecting nicknames again, all you need to do is go back to where you are, press the Connect button and then you’ll be able to talk to people once again, it really is that simple. On a more general note, be careful about what information you give to people in this chat feature because your personal safety is very important and you don’t really know who you’re actually talking to. We’re sure that you already know this anyway, though.
In conclusion, the community chat feature is something that people are starting to take note of and want to use more frequently. This guide explains to you how you yourself can get started with this trend and meet new people yourself and have fun while you’re downloading and sharing files to the rest of the internet community. It really is a revolution, so if you want to take advantage of it as well as being able to download many types of data and information then we recommend that you install it now just like the millions of other people who have done the same thing.
