It was so nice of you to think of my friend and me.  We have been a bit of a collective mess for the past few days.  I was felled by a stomach virus that knocked me on my keister on the same day she put the dog down.  She was running me to the doctor, picking up sports drinks and walking my dog in between bouts of sobbing.  Today, she found a cute little 3-pound Yorkshire terrior to babysit for a few hours and my appetite is slowly making a comeback.  As they say, it takes a village.

Thanks so much for asking!

Welcome!

With any new site, we understand that finding your way around can be a bit daunting. To help you use our site, we have a few resources and tips, all of which can be found on pages under the Support tab in your top menu bar. They are:

FAQ- here you can find some quick answers to general questions, questions about privacy and about site features.

Site News, Tips & Tricks - this is our forum where you can find tips on using the site, news about site changes and other information from the staff and other members.

The other option for opening chat is to use the small tabs at the bottom of most pages. The tab named "Opium Den" (our chat name) will open the in a small pop up window at the bottom of the screen. This window can also be resized or 'popped-out' and used as a separate window.

There is a "Members Online" tab on the bottom of your page too. This will show which other members are logged in (logged in does not mean they are active in the chat, simply they are logged in to the site). There is a small speaker icon which will allow you to adjust the chat beeps which many prefer to turn off or down when not actively chatting.
