Default 2007HQ XMPP chat (Skype chat replacement)

The Skype chat group isn't going away, you can still use it if you want, but XMPP is better in many ways so it would be much better if you used it instead.

XMPP is a chat protocol. Basically it's just another 'system' like Skype, AIM, IRC, etc. It's better than Skype because messages are always sent, it's more secure, it looks better (depending on the client you use), and if you're paranoid about the government, they don't have access to every message on XMPP.


So how do you use it? First you need to download an XMPP client. There's lots of them out there, but if you want to just chat and don't care, download Pidgin here: http://pidgin.im/download/

Install it and open it. In the window that pops up, click on "add" at the bottom of the screen. Then choose the protocol "XMPP". Put in the username you want, and put in the domain "im.flosoft.biz". Choose your password, put in a local alias (which is what the account will be named on your computer), and check the box that says "create this new account on the server".

Click add, and it should take you to the main screen, and another box will pop up. Put in your email to finish the registration, and you should be good to go. Now, on the "account" tab on the top, there should be an option to enable the account. Do that, then go to the "buddies" tab and choose "add chat". DON'T select "join chat".
Now, for room put in "runebite". For server, put in "conference.neko.im". Click add and the chat should show up in the list on the main window. Right-click on it, and click join.

Now you're in the chat. Unfortunately when you first join you won't be able to talk, until a moderator or chat owner gives you the permissions. Maple has the permissions, and me and Nismo should have them as well. Just wait in the chat or post on here and you should be given permissions soon.

Some things you might want to do:


Visual notifications when a new message is sent
For whatever reason this isn't enabled by default. To have the chat window flash on the taskbar, follow these instructions:

1. Go to the main window
2. Go to the Tools tab, then Plugins
3. Enable the plugin "Message Notification" by clicking the check-box
4. Click "Configure plugin"
5. Check "Notify for chat windows"
6. Check "Flash window" under "Notification methods"
7. Change any other settings you want
8. Click Close. You may need to restart the program to make it work.


Sound notification when a new message is sent

1. Go to the main window
2. Click on the Tools tab, then Preferences
3. Go to the Sounds tab
4. Check "Others talk in chat"
5. Click Close
