- FAQ OURWORLD
Everyone, including Tourists and our younger players, can chat in ourWorld. Just type what you want to say in the chat field (lower-right of the screen) and everyone in the room will see your message. If you use a word (or spelling) that isn't accepted by the ourWorld chat filter, the system will do its best to come up with a similar word.
Players who have saved their character and verified their Email also have access to Whisper Chat. Whisper chat allows you to send private messages to other players, including friends who are not in the same ourWorld room as you.
To use Whisper Chat, click on a player's avatar or Friends bar image and click "Whisper". You will see their name appear in the chat field and the message you type will go directly to that player, and nobody else.
To verify your Email, go to your Account page. Enter a valid Email into the top field and click "submit". A message will be sent to that address. Click the link in the message to verify the Email and activate your Whisper Chat.
Younger players (under 13) are limited to a more restrictive "White List" Chat.
