Changing Your Room Topic

When you are inside a chat room in which you have control, simply double-click anywhere in the chat text or empty space within the chat window, or use the room settings button (see Figure 1) at the bottom left of the chat client window to open the Room Settings dialog (see Figure 2). There are many tabs and options within each, but for now, we will focus on the "Room Topic/Banner" field in the "General" tab. Just type whatever you would like into this field, press the "set" button to the right of the field, and it will be displayed above the chat room text at all times.

Alternatively, you can do this by sending a text command back to the chat server: Type "/topic [whatever you want it to be]", press enter or send, and the topic will be updated. (See Figure 3.)
