The Elfwood chat is intended to be a fun and safe place for all members and visitors of Elfwood. The chatters can be young, old or from any country in the world. Therefore, please behave nicely, do not swear excessively and use your best English. That way people will understand you and will want to keep chatting. Abuse, insults and other bad behaviour will not be tolerated.
When you arrive in the chat, tell it to the other chatters by saying hello or asking something. However, remember that not everyone in the chat is online (at the same time). Some people leave the chat on even while sleeping and can appear unresponsive. It's always a good idea to wait for a reply at least a few minutes if not longer.
If you're an IRC veteran, just connect to server irc.esper.net and join channel #elfwood.
