This is a community dedicated to the site Chatphiles. It is a place for fans of the X-Files to come chat and meet other people, many of whom are not necessarily even fans of the show. It's styled as a message board and while slower than conventional chat applications, many people have a soft spot for one of the most unique chat sites on the internet.
This community was created to bring together people who love Chatphiles, as well as to find new members to chat with. Chatting is simple. Simply choose a name, your password will be mailed to you, sign in and start chatting! Just scroll to the bottom where there is a box to enter your message, hit "save message" and it will appear on the board. To check if any new messages have appeared since you last posted, hit the "read messages" button. A screenshot is available here.
The following summary of features has been slightly altered from the website version to reflect changes to the site over the years.
