Press the "Connect" button.
User Name Field
Note: you may see a Java icon and have a few seconds delay or have to click on the Java icon to continue.  If your machine does not have Java installed or encounters other technical problems, try clicking on the “Get Help with Java” in the menu bar at the top of the screen.  You may want to try this a few days before the chat to be sure your hardware and software meet the minimum requirements.

3. You are now in the public chat room or "lobby"; as noted below the lobby is a hallway, not a chat room, so you must click on "Show Rooms," which is above your name, to select a room to use.
