Question About Chat

I just noticed a message at the top of my page saying that a person has requested to chat with me in the chat room. I have never used the chat room and have never seen this message before and when I search this person's name... they don't exist on here. How is it possible for someone to make this request if they are not a member of FAA?

I always click ignore or no when I get those.

How do you even ask to chat with someone? I don't see that option anywhere...

Yes... I can and will ignore but what I am really questioning is how can they make the request in the first place without being a member here?

usually it's a weirdo, often it's about a bored person with nothing better to do. i always ignore those.

chat is under community. you click on a face that you would like to chat with, and then they in turn will ignore you. that's what i do anyway.

They cannot make a request if they are not a member

Please pm me the name and I will take a look

probably the same way they spam mail people. make a fake account, chat with people.

When I first joined FAA, I found the chat section and recognized someone so requested a chat just to test it out. I wanted to be familiar with everything I could here. Since then I've never gone back to it and have never been asked to chat with someone else. It might be useful if you had something you wanted to learn or talk about. Something you knew would require back and forth communication quickly. Facebook has it. It's of course another way to socialize (chat), and we know there are plenty of people that hunger for that opportunity.

KYLANI... Just hover or click on 'community' above (on the dark blue) You'll see 'chat' as an option there.

 

The member has been removed as was a spammer
