Are You A “Hanger-Outer”?
So you’re ready to Hang with the Cool Kids…
After you sign up (it’s free), you will pick a meeting date and time from the calendar (that appears after the log in screen).
You need to pick a meeting that works for your grade and availability — otherwise the Moderator may deny your entry. All of our Moderators are great, so you should try them all to see which one you like the best (not really about the Moderators, anyway – it’s about the other Members of your group). Kids that are just like you; dealing with the same stuff you are.
What you need to get in the door (so to speak):
1. A computer with a microphone and a camera that faces you while you look at the screen.
2. A high speed internet connection.
3. It is possible to join the group with just a smartphone. Just keep the phone stable on a table and watch your data usage if you are not on Wi-Fi or, Dad might get a little annoyed…
If you want to test your setup after you get all the parts described above, give us a call or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d be happy to walk you through it. Also, there are lots of helpful videos online.
When it’s the day of your group, you will get an email with a link in it. Just click the link about 5 minutes before the scheduled start time and you will be ushered right into the Hangout. Easy Speezy.
What is expected of you…
First of all, we expect you to enjoy yourself. For that to happen for you and everyone else in the group, we have some rules…
The Moderator is the Captain of the Ship. Whatever they say goes. Disrespect the rules, and you get unplugged (yes, the Moderator has the technology).
If you get unplugged from two separate groups, your KWM membership will be suspended, and you will not be able to schedule future groups until it is reactivated.
The rules are actually pretty simple.
* No yelling
* Don’t interrupt another person
* Be respectful of everyone’s feelings.
Wait, I almost forgot. Sometimes our Moderators insist on a joke from each of their Group Members. Don’t arrive empty handed… I’m just sayin’…
