ZFF Private Chat Room; How to use NexChat

Our weekly chats (when they are in session) are held in our ZFF private chatroom which is a NexChat. NexChat is an IRC style chatroom, however it is integrated with our board. It cannot be viewed or searched outside our community. Chat logs are not retained. [In case you find your way to Planet Nexus (the host of NexChat) you do not need to register there to use the chat here.]

NexChat will appear at the bottom of your browser screen on every page of the site, so you can navigate ZFF while chatting with us in the chat.

To use NexChat, you must be logged into ZFF and registered on the Nexus System. Here is how to go about accessing the chat:

How to use NexChat

1. Register: Click the registration link in the NexusBar at the bottom right of the page. Fill out the Registration Form and choose a Nexus password. Submit your registration. Note: Your password cannot be recovered. If you lose it, please ask us to delete your Nexus registration. When that is done, you can register again with a new password.

2. Find the chat bar at the bottom of your browser window and open the chat by clicking the "Chat" link on the right side.

You may completely disable the chat at any time by clicking the green Posted Image on the left of the chat bar. Click again to bring the bar back up.

You may close the chat and still see the number of chatters by partially collapsing the chat. Click the "V" symbol:

If you wish to just minimize to the chat bar only, click either of the X's in the chat box itself.

3. If you have not registered yet you will see a registration prompt. If you have successfully registered, you will see a login box. Add your Nexus Password and submit:

4. You are now in the chatroom and ready to chat!
