How to start talking to other Elftowners
There are a few methods to talk to the other members of the community, either the forums , private messaging a particular member, or joining #elftown through IRC.
You can find a list of forums by clicking on the 'Forum' button in the top navigation bar. A page will load with a list of all the public forums. When you find one you are interested in, click 'Join forum' .
You will now be a member of this forum, you can read past posts, and then reply.
for a full guide on how to use forums.
First of all you will need to visit a member's house. To do this you can either type in their name if you know it, in the 'Seek Username' box (located at the top right) or you can do an ET member search by clicking on the search button on the top navigational bar.
Once you have found a member, scroll to the bottom of their house, where you will see a box to type a message. When this member is online they will see an indicator that they have a new message. It is then their choice whether or not to reply to you.
Elfchat is the only true real time method of talking for ET. Find out more at Elfchat
