We have a special chat room for Hungry For Hits members. It appears on the right side when you are viewing ads to earn credits, surfing, but it can be closed by clicking the red X in the top right corner of the chat box. To use the chat, you will need to register a special account for it. You just need to enter an email address (it doesn’t have to be the same as the one you use for your main Hungry For Hits account), chose a username and a password, and you’re good to go.
You can log in immediately with the details you chose, you don’t need to verify the account first. You can also upload a picture, which is a good idea. If you want a profile picture, you have to upload one from your computer, as it doesn’t pull any images from Gravatar. When you say something in chat, people will be able to click your name and see your Profile page.
To send a message, enter a message in the text field at the top and either press your enter key, click “Send”. Common sense and site terms apply to chat, which means that it is not allowed to spam, insult, comment on race or post anything illegal. Talking about drugs, sex or politics is also highly inappropriate.
The chat is only a social feature, for networking and entertainment, and you can not promote things in the chat. This is the reason why people must create an account separate from their main Hungry For Hits account, so that they can be blocked from the chat if they post things that don’t belong there.
There is a 20 character limit for each individual word without a space, so if you would try to add a link it would most likely be cut off. There are almost no words with that many characters, so regular conversations are not affected by this.
To see the available smileys, click the yellow smiley with a knife and fork next to the “Send” button. A smiley list will open in a new window. To add a smiley in your message, you can either click the smiley image, copy the command next to the smiley image and paste it into your message, or type it directly. Just remember to type a : before and after the command for the picture to appear in your message. For example, a sun smiley would be typed like this:
:sun: and it would appear like this:
To change your username, picture or password for your chat account, click the “Settings” link above the text field where you type your message. Make whatever changes you want to do, then click “Save” and “Return to chat”. If you are logged in to Hungry For Hits, you can also open the chat in a separate window. This is good if you just want to use it for socializing, but not surf to earn credits. To do this, rightclick the window and select “This frame – Open frame in new window”.
