Out of the FOG does not have a live chat feature.

several parts of the guidelines addresses member communications off the main boards:

Confidentiality:

Confidentiality is important to the safety of everybody on our board.  It is strongly recommended that members not directly or indirectly disclose their own identity.  Itís not uncommon for members to discover that the person with a personality disorder in their life has been reading at this site. 

You are also discouraged from registering with a user name, email address or avatar that could be recognized.  Sites such as Yahoo and Google offer free anonymous email hosting.   You are strongly encouraged not to register using any email address that other people may have access to as the board will occasionally send information about your account to that address.

Please donít post any information that directly or indirectly discloses the identity of family members, friends or relationship partners.  This includes (but is not limited to) direct information such as real names, photographs, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, etc., as well as, indirect information such as pet names, local venues, etc.

If you should accidentally post information which compromises the confidentiality of yourself or someone close to you, you may contact a moderator or administrator designating the specific confidential information to be removed.  One administrative edit, of up to a maximum of 3 posts, will be given to each member.  After the first request, subsequent requests to edit posts by the same member will be denied.

Do not copy the contents of any personal or legal communications, documents, written correspondence, email, social media posts, personal messages, texts and recorded conversations verbatim into posts.

Members having off-board information about another member shall not disclose it. 

Do not solicit personal contact information from other members on the boards or in PM, as this is considered a violation of privacy.  If someone volunteers their information in a personal context, it is their right to do so, but you are under no obligation to reciprocate.   Please respect the privacy of others as you wish your own privacy to be respected.   If someone solicits personal contact information from you and the solicitation makes you uncomfortable in any way, you are encouraged to report the incident to any Moderator or Administrator.

Any information posted which reveals identifying information about another individual will be modified or removed by the moderators.

Private Messages

Private Messages can only be viewed by the poster and recipient. The same rules which apply to forum posts at OOTF also apply to Personal Messages. However, Private Messages are not moderated. If you should receive an inappropriate private message please use the "Report to Admin" link at the bottom of each private message. Take particular care to protect yourself when corresponding with strangers using this feature. You are not obliged to answer any Private Message you receive or to provide any information to any individual, no matter how friendly or trustworthy they may appear. Avoid giving out any personal or confidential information to anyone you do not know well.

OOTF is a forum for public discussion about personality disorders. It is not permitted to post an invite on any of our forums to begin or continue a conversation by Private Message.

     Hello,
One could say I am the new kjd on the sight.  I have a family member who suffers from DID, formerly known as multiple personality disorder.  I am looking for people like me, who are also looking for people like me, to talk to.  I am very much at a loss. :sadno:

welcome to the forum TD,

i'm sorry you have experienced mental illness in the form of DID and i know we could benefit from you sharing more about your experiences with the group.  we don't support a live chat feature here, and encourage our members to keep their conversations on the open boards because of the number of people who benefit from the advice and information contained within the threads.

we'd like to hear more about the family member that brought you here so we can share with you the areas of the board that may be best suited to support/ validate you.

here's a link with directions to make your introductory post
http://www.outofthefog.net/forum/index.php?topic=26098.0

here's a hot link to the welcome mat, where other members have made their introductions as well-
