How to The Claytons
In years past, The Claytons has been hosted in RWA’s general chat rooms, but recently we’ve moved! We’re now in the RWA Forum chat rooms.
In order to help some of our newbies (and some of our seasoned Claytoners) better find and use the chat rooms and tools, we’ve put together the following ‘how to’.
If you find you still need direction, let us know by replying here and we can walk you through any issues you may have. And do ask—we’re here to help you have THE BEST CLAYTONS EVER!
RWA Forum Chat Direction
Go to the RWA website at www.romanceaustralia.com .
Click into the Members Only tab.
Log in using your member number and password. If you don’t remember your member number or you don’t yet have a password for the forum, contact RWA’s web mistress at email@example.com.
Click into the Forum Link.
Scroll down to the very bottom of the forum page. Click into the Chat Rooms button.
A box appears listing the available chat rooms. Click into The Claytons Chat room.
You’re now in The Claytons Chat room!
You can start typing here. To log out, click the door icon.
NOTE: It is possible to slightly enlarge the chat screen by clicking into the arrow in the box icon near the door to leave icon (not shown in this illustration). But…you will need to refresh your screen EVERY time you change screen size or you will not ve able to view/participate in the conversation. To refresh, PC users try the green arrow keys at the top of your screens web browser or Control+F5 (press both simultaneously). Mac users try Command+R (again both keys simultaneously).
And that’s it! Simple as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5! Have a go at the chat rooms; only The Claytons Committee room is presently password protected. Meet a friend or two there and play around with the tools.
If you find you have questions or issues, let us know either by posting your query here or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
We’re here to help in any way we can so that you have THE BEST CLAYTONS EVER!
Until then…happy writing (or chatting in this case)!
