      Unfortunately, I can’t make it at the specified times, which are midnight and 5am in Eastern Australia. I will be online and in Bree on Sunday at 10am (Melbourne – Sydney time), which is Saturday 8pm server time. If any player, aussie or not, is online at that time, send me a tell and we can do something together.

      Shan and any other Australian Eagles, please see the following forum thread on Coursera and vote: https://class.coursera.org/onlinegames-002/forum/thread?thread_id=219. We’re trying to figure out a time that will work for Eagles staff to be present plus that will work for those of you in Australia. Thanks! :)

      Want to know how to chat to people in-game? No problem.

      Sending a message to another player
      1. Click on the player you want to talk to so that you see a circle around them and their name comes up on your screen. Click on their name logo and you will find options. Move cursor over “chat”, you should see another option: “tell”. Click on it. In your chat window you should see “/tell (player’s name”-now you can add your message. Enter.

      2. In the chat window type “/tell (player’s name goes here) followed by what you want to say. Enter.

      IM Session
      This is where you can send private messages to individual players and have an uninterrupted conversation with them, free from any other chat.

      Once you send a tell or two to the person, you can click on the IM Session tab in the chat window. You will see the other player’s name on the right. Click on it. This opens up your chat session with them.

      Using Emotes
      Where to find them: In the chat window, where you type to talk to people, there’s a little icon bubble to the left. Click on it. It gives you an option of chat output and “emotes” will be one of them. Click on it. It will reveal several “pages” of emote actions.

      How to use them:
      1. See above. To use one click on it. The emote should come up in your chat window. Enter.
      2. In the chat window type “/(name of emote)”
      3. If you want to use an emote towards a particular person you need to click on their character so that you see the circle around them. Then type in your emote.

      Good ones to use:

      Have fun!

      I had a lovely time doing the games on the 27th. I have plenty of screen shots for the assessment although I wasn’t quick enough on the F12 F11 after/handstand to get one of us upside down. Tonight I have three hours set aside for The Fellowship of The Rings film.I had forgotten that it was so long :)

      Slightly self indulgent video of me running backwards through the Gates Dash course on the Sunday event.

      It’s still processing and has no music, should be ready in a short while.
