Please actually read the guide on how to connect to OUR server. Do not just blindly download the software and connect. You will connect to the wrong server.

Picture 1:

Open the Riot (Element) program for your desktop/laptop environment. Click on "change" by the server called Matrix. This needs to be changed in order to access our chat.
If you end up on another network. They will not be of help getting you to the right place.

This is what you would normally see once you're logged in... If this is your first time on the chat. You won't see many channels. Your first channel will be the main room of the server. To view other rooms. Simply backout of the room and click the # symbol which will give you a list of rooms and an option to create one. Please remember, rules on content is the same on ZV.

If you've logged in before. You will be getting a notification to verify your login on another session you've previously used. This is for extra security and to ensure you can read your encrypted messages on other devices.
It will ask to use a recovery passphrase or key. The recovery key will be a file that you downloaded through the options menu in the account. If you don't have that, ensure you made a passphrase.
IF you forgot all of the above, you have the option to reset everything. But this will cause you to lose any encrypted chats. They can not be recovered.


MAKING A CHANNEL.

Making a room is a pretty straight forward process... Follow this guide to see how to setup and configure your new room.

When you first login, you'll see on the left side a list pane of "people, rooms, and invites" Next to rooms click on the + symbol.
Then you'll see this box appear.

You have the option of making a private or public room. Making a private room will be encrypted by default, unless you change the setting yourself.
Public room will be unencrypted.

For public rooms, you can make a room address... Simply put the name you would like it to be called. This will be the address people will use to join. Do not put :beast.chat as that is added by default.

Under "Show advanced"
This will let you select if you want to block users from other servers from joining. As our server is locked down and no other servers can connect. It's best to have this option selected anyway.



Once you're in the new room after selecting "Create room"
Select the gear icon on the top right side or click on the room name and you'll be greeted with this window.

Whats new? Threads! Now you can have conversations more organized!
Including the new search.
These are in beta. Usually they may be enabled if you mouse over the messages.

Flair
: Most likely depreciated.
Flair is basically a little icon that's placed on your name as you type in rooms.
As we don't have a community list showing what to join. You can be able to select on a flair icon that's on a persons name. Then select "Join community"
As you selected a community/flair. Go to your profile > Settings > and select "Flair" You'll be greeted with a list of communities you joined.
Select which you would like displayed.

IF YOU'RE VIEWING THIS ON MOBILE. YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO JOIN AND TURN ON A FLAIR ON THE MOBILE APP. Nothing we can do to fix that, as we don't develop the app.
