The Old Paths Network
A chat facility allows you to communicate with another person or a group of people by typing messages back and forth. What the others type appears on your screen and what you type is seen by the others.
If a chat room is "empty" (no one else is connected to it at that moment) there will be no response to your messages.
Some chat rooms are monitored 24 hours a day (with the help of people in different time zones). Some have certain times of the day or week that you can be sure someone will be there. Sometimes two or more people agree to "meet" at a chat room at a certain time.
