What is NF Chat?
NF Chat is a chat platform where people share text messages they type. NF Chat is currently configured for one single chatroom. People who are logged in have their names appearing in the right hand column. They type their messages on the bottom and everyone's messages appear in chronological order in the top left. You can also send a private message to a member in chat.

If you still don't succeed in logging in, then you can reset your password by selecting "Forgot login". The details for this procedure are in the next FAQ.
