This is a quick guide to using the new IM and Chat beta launch.
Rooms Tab: The global-chat is open to all registered fans.
There is another room that is reserved for users of a certain level, and you'll also see that in the Rooms tab. In the past, we've had a few bila mpangilio people come in and hit on the people in the chat rooms, so the reserved room should be relatively free of such riff-raff.

Turning off chat: Click on the bubble inayofuata to "I am online" and click on the red "Log out" option on the menu.

It now lists their highest medalled klabu with viungo to those klabu so that others may explore and contribute. Future versions will have tabs to onyesha current highest ranked fans, active mashabiki who joined longest ago, and hand-picked featured fans. Got ideas? That's what maoni are...
fanpop is all about mashabiki and quality content. It's not just about medals, but we wanted to do something that shows appreciation for mashabiki who create great content, and that's why medali exist.
The Medal swali comes up once in a while and here's one example:
"When I contribute a lot to a spot on almost on a weekly basis for months, I don't get a medal. However, when I barely contribute to a spot, I get a medal for only adding like 20 images."
First of all, we pay a lot of attention to medali and fairness. We can't tell everyone exactly how to game the system au else it would result in the so-called...
