The Back Room Chat Room brings industry celebrities and professionals to you! It’s old school text-only, so log in and ask questions of the guest hosts!
Look at the bottom right-hand corner of your screen, and click on the box labeled “Back Room Chat Room.” You can then drag the box larger to see more. You can also pop it out to a new window at the wheel gadget there.
In the box immediately to the right of the Back Room Chat Room (# People Here) you can see the list of everyone on the website. To open a private chat session simply click on the “chat” next to their name. If you are not logged into the website, it will create a Guest name for you–feel free to keep it if you want to remain anonymous, or change it in that box. It will give the option to sign in using Facebook, Twitter, or Envolve. Or if you use the “Login” button at the top right hand of the website pages, you are logged in through my website (and you’ll be able to proceed directly to checkout if you win the Free Shipping!).
There is room for a tag line in the # People Here box, so you can tell everyone information about yourself–sort of like a status update. If you have any questions, open a private chat with Jodi or Clint.
Be sure to let us know if you have any problems: email@example.com.
When do I chat with the Guests?
The Back Room Chat Room is now open all the time – you can bring your friends in to chat anytime. But we and our Chat guests will only be here Thursdays 9-10 pm EST/EDT (the New York, NY Time Zone, UTC-4). Here’s a good link to convert it to your time zone.
A quick reminder about our rules: Show Respect. There Are Children Here. Be Good; Don’t Be Evil.
How Do I Win Stuff?
Clint and I will ask each person logging in to pick a card and suit, such as Ace of Spades or Two of Diamonds. We will draw from a deck of cards until one of those cards is dealt. The winner will get Free Shipping on one order from the Beautiful Brains website, and don’t forget you always get 10% off with the coupon “ILoveBrains.” Guest hosts offering a prize will arrange their own conveyance and we’ll do another draw.
