This area explains all of the settings that are available to you when setting up your own chat room. You will want to pick a good name that describes the activities in you room, as well as placing it in the correct category. You will also want to choose some 'admins' or 'super admins' to help you run the room if it is popular.
To edit your room from the 'classic' messenger version of Paltalk, select 'MyPaltalk' from the 'file' menu on your main Paltalk Pal List window. Now click on the 'edit room' link in the 'my room' panel.
To edit your room from Paltalk for Mac and Windows PCs, click on the 'home' selection near the bottom left of the main window, then scroll down to the 'my room' panel on the right. Hover your mouse over the top right corner of the panel and and click on the 'edit' icon when it appears.
Your chat room setup pages will be presented.
This displays the 'My Room Setup', 'room details' tab. Tabs are on the left side of the page. Click through the tabs to check all of your settings. Some things are set as default settings to get your started, but you will want to take full advantage of this area. Each room also has it's own web page on our public groups app, so filling out a description, uploading a great picture, and encouraging followers and gifting can really advertise your group in a great light. Users can also comment and rate your group.
Now back to your room settings... Click the 'edit' button near the top right of your page to begin editing your group setup.
The 'room details' tab:
Upload a picture : Click the 'pencil' icon at the lower right corner of the default picture to upload a new one. Make it interesting and related to your subject of discussion. No foul language displayed please.
Room name : Pick a room name that best describes your activities in about 50 characters or less. Please note that we do not allow you to denigrate or harass or name other users in your group title.
Subscription level : Your room is free but you can pay to upgrade to get more features (more later)
Chat room URL : This is the URL or web address to your chat room. You can share it or link to it from your web site.
Welcome message : Describe your activities or list any rules or greetings to users entering your room. You have a maximum of 255 characters.
Category : Your choice of category and subcategory is probably your most important decision. You can choose by subject or geographic location.
Sub category : Further defines and categorizes your room.
Language : Select the language that is most commonly spoken in your room.
Rating : Room ratings are VERY important. Paltalk takes room ratings seriously. If you want a wild west free for all pick an A rating, where anything including nudity goes. A rated rooms are less likely to be complained about for ratings violations. Some people are offended by nudity but don't mind a bit of 'adult language', so we have R rated rooms where you can swear like a sailor, but be sure to keep it clean on cam. Then we have G rated rooms for people of all ages, where you may NOT swear or use foul language, and you must keep it clean on cam. Violating a G rating is taken seriously and you can and will get banned for violating it. If you find it hard to control yourself or your room, a G rating is probably not your best choice.
G rated = no foul language in voice or nudity on camera
R rated = foul language ok in voice but no nudity on camera (must be over the age of 18)
A rated = foul language ok in voice and nudity is ok on camera (must be over the age of 18)
Deactivate room : Select this option if you intend to be away and do not want your admins opening your room in your absense. De-select it so your room can be used again.
