Interactive Message Forums
We have a new message forum system. It is part of the chat server so the login process is the same as the chat (same page as well). Current forums include; Hot Bears, Body Builder and Oldermen Picture forums. The forums are available for bear.net Supporting Members
Click here to login to the web-based Forums.
If you do not have a profile, this is a great opportunity to create one! Otherwise, you can login as a guest. Guests can only access the main chat room and limited forums.
Dedicated Windows Forum client
If you are running Windows, please download and use the free windows client
instead of the web interface. You will like it much better. You can also IM other bear.net members while being in the forums or chat rooms. Guests can also use the free Windows Forum/Chat Client
. Forum/Chat client with menus in other languages are available on the main forum
Chat with Yahoo, AIM and MSN users at the same time!
The new forum/chat also offers the ability to IM with your Yahoo, AIM and MSN accounts all from within the one program. This way you can just run 1 program and still chat with all your friends on those other services. Just enter your username and password in the appropriate section of the preferences and chat away!
Forum & Chat Resources
evolved as a way to add expression in a text based environment
. In person, the tone of your voice and body language influence your meaning. Text messages can often confuse or offend. Emoticons
help prevent such problems.
Orignally quite simple, todays text emoticons can be quite complex. Check our list of acronyms as well chat images that you may see in our chat.
