Open A Private Room
If you are a known Open Group Chat user you may earn the ability to create your own rooms, public or private, at any time.
Alternatively you can email a request with the room name and password (if required) and the room will be created for you by an app manager.
If the room is created by you or for you, management over users will possible using your own account. A room has an owner, and admin privledges.
A room owner has the ability to promote room members to admin level, change the room password, and kick members temporarily (if it is public they can re-join, or if it is private and they know the current password they may re-join).
Room owners cannot promote any member to a room owner privledges, this ability is reserved for app managers only.
Like a moderator, a room admin can kick members only.
Changing or Creating Room Passwords
The app manager or room owner privledged members may at any time create or change the room password. All room members will be required to enter the new password the next time they join the room.
Changing a Room Name
Only the app managers can change the display name of a room, and require acceptable cause to grant a request.
