Title: LiVE PoeTrY REaDS - The Alley in YakCHaT
Post by: Rg on May 18, 2010, 07:41 PM
ANNOUNCING!

THE ALLEY Live Poetry Readings - Thursday's 9:00PM - 10:30PM (EST) - Yak Chat
The Alley is now hosting live poetry readings in Yakkity Yak Virtual Places Chat.  Yak is a FREE chat program and is very easy to use. 

For those who have been around the virtual chat world - this program is virtually the same as the old Excite, or Halsoft VP programs.


To join us, here are the following instructions per daisy:

Download Yak Chat here:  http://www.yackity-yak.com/ (http://www.yackity-yak.com/)

You'll find an overview of the program benefits, install instructions, and a link to preview a sample of what a page looks like once you've downloaded and installed.

*  Click on the link at the top of the page where it says:  For All Windows ----- Chat Download........YY-Chat-3300.exe
*  A box pops up asking if you want to 'run or save this file?'  Click "Run" 
*  Your computer's virus program or firewall may stop you and ask if you want to continue with the download.  Click Yes, Allow, Continue, etc - depending on your program. 
*  Another box pops up "Welcome to the YY-Chat-3300 Install Program."
*  Follow the instructions for downloading.  Once the install wizard begins, follow the prompts and let your computer create the directories the wizard suggests.

When the download is complete - open the program.  You'll land on the Welcome page. Click on the link to register a screenname and password.  Another box pops up for the registration process.  You should read the Terms of Service, as always, before agreeing to go forward.

Once your screenname is approved, open the program and sign in.  You'll land on the "Picker" page with your name showing in "Observe."  Select your name by clicking on it once, right click on your name, Choose "Edit Identity"

*  Since this is your first time in the program your picture "avatar" (AV, for short) will be a cartoon person with a bag on his/her head.
*  If you have avatars from other chat programs, or possibly one you use here in the Alley forum, click on "Personal" -- then click "Change" -- browse to find the directory your avs are saved in - choose one, click OK and your picture will be changed.
*  If you don't have any avatars yet - click on "Stock" and choose one that is supplied with the program. We can help you find more av's at a later time.
*  When you've changed your picture, click OK and you're ready to come find us.

There are 3 ways to find us:
* In the bottom right of the screen click on "Locate" -- type in:  daisyxo, or elise -- press "Enter" or click on the "Locate" button.  If the person is online, the box will show you where they are.  Click on the name and then click "Go to Place" -- by default you'll land in Observe.  Click on "Room" (top left of screen) to enter the room.
*  You can type in the page address in the "Location" bar, type the address then press enter:  hhttp://thealleypoetry.com/
*  From the "Picker" page you can watch the flashing banners -- look for The Alley Poetry, click on it and it will take you to the page.

When you get into the room the first time --- In the grey bar (top left) click on "Go" -- "Favorite Places" -- "Add to Favorites" --- the room is now saved as a favorite and you'll be able to find your way back next time.

You'll need to download the poetry reader to your desktop.  In the black bar above the Alleypicture, click on the links and follow the instructions. 

There are many little things that we can help you with once you're in the program (settings, moving around, megas,the poetry reader, etc.).  The instructions above should get you in and ready to begin enjoying the experience of virtual chat.  Be prepared to have fun and to be drawn into the excitement of "Live Poetry Readings."

Please, come and join us ~ we're excited to get started and can't wait to see you.  If you'd like to come and observe, that's ok, we won't pressure you.  If you want to share a poem or 2, we're ready!  Constructive comments are welcome and encouraged. 

If you need help getting the program downloaded, or getting in and finding us, please let us know.  Contact Daisy or elise - we'll be happy to help.

hi Halo ..... I'm not sure without a little more info.  I wonder if your firewall or virus program is stopping you?  I'll look around this evening after work.  There are bound to be a few problems with all the differences in computers and stuff they run in the background.  Have a good day and I'll get back to you.

Post by: Halo on May 20, 2010, 02:14 AM
I have good news...excellent news. I had a dodgy yahoo messenger.  I got rid of it last night and my whole system is working better. I have downloaded Yak Chat and waiting for my account to be verified.

Thanks Daisy, for your help. I didn't get your email, just the Alley topic notification for in here. I'm so glad I fixed this on my own, I hate feeling helpless with computer stuff.
Looking forward to joining in the chat.  :cheekiss

Halo was already taken...so it is byzantinehalo.  ::)

Thank you to EVERYONE who came out for our LIVE Poetry night in Yak!  We had about 10 there, and saw some that we hadn't seen in a longggggg time.
It was great fun!  Anyone remember 777Moon?  She goes wayyyyy back.  She came!  Halo made it in, yay!  Mystic and Loner (Russ)...and daisy and me.
Then a few from Yak wandered in or sat in obs to read.   

Next time we hope you will all join us!

I just want to say thank you to Elise and Daisy for a great time last night. I hadn't been in a chatroom in about seven years. I forgot how much fun it could be. Had a blast!! And the poetry was amazing. (Even if I had read a lot of it before.) Just getting to hear the poet's backstories about how their peices came to be was wonderful insight. And meeting a few new friends, too. Thanks again.  :blusmoke G.

I'm seeing double posts, me thinks ......... we did have a lot of fun at the live reading last night in Yak!  There are endless possibilities for the live readings ...... some things to look forward to in the future: 

* theme writing ... poems and avatars theme related
* anyone who has access capability to skype or yahoo voice, can actually have those programs open in the background - reading the poem in voice as it scrolls in the room - truly a live reading (never a requirement, only a suggestion)
* holiday parties
* bring a friend night
* pajama parties (no nude av's allowed, Yak is a family chat)

and the list could go on and on ........ join us each Thursday at 9:00 pm, EST

We had yet another wonderful LIVE POETRY READING  event in YAKCHAT last night! 
We  were blessed with the presence and readings of an Epyleptic Trout!!!   It was great fun to have him there!   

We are still missing other elements....(NAMELY YOU!)...

We had a wonderful time sharing the poems from our JUNE CHALLENGE.  It is amazing how great it is to actually interact with
those we have all known only on the boards.  It's really fun!  I hope soon more and more will come!  There were a couple who
wandered in from Yak and shared also.  They are starting to look forward to Thursday nights. 

The hour and a half always seems to fly by...and lots of us linger way after the official ending.  PLEASE JOIN US!

There was an EPYLEPTIC air of MARSUPIALism, and a MYSTICal HALO rang through the room like a BUZZSAW.
We had to call in a MEDIC and a LONER STRAYCAT wandered in too.   All in all it was a LUCID and inspiring event!

Ohhh Witt...we would LOVE it if you could come in!   Most had never been in ANY chatroom....we are just so glad
to have them.  It's fun getting to know the "real" people of The Alley! 

Lucid is in Yakchat, and we send out an announcement to the whole of Yak..."Live Poetry Reading in The Alley" and they wander in from all over.   
Some sit in observe and watch.  There is a link on the page leading back here to the boards, and some have joined.

Take no notice of the Halo behind the curtain. The only trouble I had with Yak stemmed from my own lacking sense of direction. Thursday last, I found myself sitting alone in the Alley whilest the party was being held in the Cafe down the street. I can only assume my graven invitation had been lost in the post.

Mystic, sometimes there is what I call a "ghost site" in Yak (and all the other VP's I've been in).  I've also found myself sitting on a page that I had even bookmarked - while everybody else was on an identical site elsewhere on the server.  The best way to figure this out if you've been sitting alone for a while is to locate elise, or halo, or me and go to where they are.  Once you get to the site everybody is on, remove the bookmark, and then readd it.

Rg, I have searched and have not found any Apple MAC/OS friendly downloads for Yackity-Yak.  If there isn't one, no worries.  Also, the streamjam software you posted in FB is on my radar.  In the near future, I would like to discuss collaborating/staging/streaming a show off a nearby rooftop in Venice Beach with my firm.

Best,
C

Hi Cy

I dont really remember if chat platforms like YAK can be run on MACs (maybe you need to hold the mouse differently ..lol ..i couldnt resist) ..Elise or Daisy could answer that better than I.

As for the StreetJam thing ..I am looking into it, might know something later this week.

Cy, I sent an email to Yakchat and asked if Mac users could use their chat.
Here is their reply:  I sure hope this works for you!!!

Yes it can if you do this  . . .

Will YakChat client work on a Mac computer?

Yes, the YakChat client will work Mac computers if you use a PC emulation program such as Virtual PC.

hope this brings our Mac users to the Poetry Reading on Yak.

      Perhaps we could hold an irregular poetry reading? Perhaps this Friday? As I'm almost positive after all the turkey and trimmings many of us will be rather irregular by then.
