New PWMS chat ! -Update
We have had a great two weeks in chat! We have welcomed back many chatters who had lots of problems with Dream chat. Access and adjustability of fonts and colors makes a real improvement. Red has been adding more emoticons ("smileys") and audicons ("soundies" :) This has really livened up the chat. Chatters say this is a much more user friendly chat and they no longer have problems getting into chat due to pop up blockers. At worst, your java needs to be upgraded. But it's easy to test using the link on our Chat Page, and correct by the link we have provided to Sun's "free upgrade". I think you all will like this chat much better. And best of all...... Its free to join in.
About Them smiley's and sounds...
We're on the lookout for cute little graphics or images, that people can pop up in chat by typing a single word, like Hugs Kisses frowns etc... Or neat sounds we have only been able to type before. If you see something special send it to us please. Images should be .gif or .jpg smaller than 24k. If not too much bigger, we may be able to adjust it to fit. Sounds need to be the same 24K size, and preferably in .au format. We may also be able to convert from more popular formats, such as .wav.
Stef and Bev, two new chatters. Thank you for joining us! And welcome back to many of the chatters who haven't been with us for a long time.
Our objective is to provide an informal, supportive site for people seeking on-line information about Multiple Sclerosis. We aren't doctors, we aren't experts. We just live it everyday. We formed this site to share what we have learned, provide a focal point for exchange of information, and give back to the community.
Support is a very big word when it comes to MS. Doctors can only tell you so much during an office visit. Leaving unanswered questions, concerns and issues. People with any disease can often learn best from each other. To this end we provide a chat forum to share information and suggestions, posting of the latest news, and links to authoritative sources of information.
There are many informative sites out there. Visit them all! You can never have enough information. We do not intend to compete with any other sites. Like coffee shops, each has it's own unique atmosphere and clientele. There can never be enough of them.
Our chat is open for anything that has to do with MS. Some topics are not pleasant. But need to be talked about. If you have a problem, no matter what it is, chances are there is someone in chat that can help you. The one thing that PWMS will not accept is being laughed at for any MS problem. We expect all chatters to be considerate of others.
We have appointed Jeffs and JackIL has room administrators. They have been using the chat. They walked through the set up with us. They can help you if you need help.
Please help us remember to ask all chatters to sign the guest book. It's our only way of sending them our news letter.
Thank for adding some great Jokes and information on our message board! Please use the message board, Please become a member! Its freeMessage board
