Chat Room & Members Area Facts

  1. Safety Tips for Chat Room & Members Area

    Safety-wise, meeting on the Net is inherently similar to meeting outside, offline. If the same standard meeting precautions are followed, the cyber-savvy can feel truly at ease while getting to know each other. The main thing to remember: trust your instincts and use common sense just like you would outside, offline Helpful Hints for Meeting Online

    You're in control of your online experience at all times. You can remain completely anonymous until you feel ready.

    You are the one in control when it comes to taking an online relationship offline. You have an advantage online because you can get to know each other before you meet. Remember that you don't need to take anything further than the computer or phone wires.

    When you do decide to meet face to face, pick a public place and provide your own transportation to and from. Tell a friend where you're going and check in when you return home.

    Always set up an email account just for online meeting.

    Ask a lot of questions and watch for inconsistencies with answers given

    Stay away from members who won't take no for an answer or pressure you for any kind of personal information. Others will respect your space and allow you to take your time.

    Even with our strong effort to ensure the quality of our sites, we cannot guarantee about the people you meet on-line. We ask members to call us if they see anything strange so that we can research it.

    If someone asks you to go to their personal web site page or asks you for money, use good sense not to oblige and then report the situation to us.

    Using your good judgment is your best bet because ultimately you are responsible for your own experience. Trust your instincts always and then have fun with the right people!

  2. What is the difference between the color icons next to name in the chat room?

    Icon color meanings next to the screen name in the chat room:

     

    GOLD is a main owner & founder of the member area & chat room.
