 If you are a new user, login as: "New" or "Neu" or "Nouveau" or "Nuevo"

 Gimme your Nickname: New      

First question is about your main language :

 In which of the following languages should texts be displayed on your screen?
 <3>Italiano <not finished> 
 Please choose one of this languages.
 If you choose a <not finished> language, you will get some English texts,
 but as soon as this language is completed, you will get all texts in that

For English, choose the 0.

Now you have to choose your nickname. If your nickname is already in use, you will be asked for another one. In my sample, I'm choosing "Denisn"

 Please choose a Username. (no offensive one, please) 
 Username: Denisn 
 Do you really want to use 'Denisn' as your username?  

Answer Y(es) if you're sure you want to use this Nickname.

Now select any languages your understand and you can use to chat. Do not select to many languages, except if you want to look stupid because of a message you can't understand ! :-D

Hit the corresponding key to change an option, hit ENTER to end. To learn more about theses options, look at the Options in Config menu.

Next step : you have to choose the password you'll use when logging in...

  You should choose a password that no one will ever be able to 
  guess, so no one can abuse your account. Your password will not be 
  echoed to the screen when you type it.
 Please type in a password: ..... 
 Please enter it again for verification: ..... 

Now the rooms. At the beginning, unzapped rooms are general rooms and rooms in the language areas you have choosen before. In this menu, you can choose to unzap all rooms from anothers language areas.

  We do have rooms for many different languages. The general rooms 
  and the rooms for the languages you have choosen above are unzapped

Selected rooms will be unzapped at your first login ! :-)
