Here is our problem.... or ignorance .  Is there a way to create a channel in Lotro ie SMrecruit so members of SM could easily recognize and/or chat with recruits.  Or, in my regard I am a horrible person with multi tasking just can't do it.  I can move the combat tab away from general but not the IM, and missed a chance to chat with Sparkyle.  Can the IM tab be moved?

I get very confused with creating and moving tabs.

I would love to have tells in the same tab as kinchat but have never worked out how, or if, it is possible.

In other words, Laerydn, I can't be of any help I'm afraid but I feel your pain!
Berathiela - elven hunter (level 65)
Teon - human minstrel (level 65)
Lhach - elven guardian (level 71)
Clarinal - human captain (level 30)
Agapanthus - hobbit burglar (level 11)

and Gragrak - monster (rank 4)..grrrr

You're right, you don't seem to be able to separate the IMS tab from the General tab. However, I, personally, rarely use the IMS tab. Individual preference, I hope. Either that, or not being an officer, I just don't need it so much

To create a new tab: right click on an existing tab, and select "Create new tab".
To create a new window: drag a tab away from the window it's on, and drop somewhere else.
To change what shows in a tab: right click on the tab, and pick filter.

I normally run with a second chat window above the default one, and have one tab on it, with filters set to Kinship, Fellowship and Raid.
I've just looked, and there is a filter for "tell", so I can add tells to the pile, and they won't get scrolled away by normal events happening (as those are "Standard", and stay in the default window).

Of course, you might want to clear the filters on the original window as well, or you'll get the messages appearing in multiple places

We could, potentially, have an SMrecruit channel. It's the usual routine of /joinchannel SMrecruit, noting the channel number, enabling the filters, and then using /<channelnumber> to use it. I suspect, for many people, that it's easier to just filter the "Fellowing" panel And for the people where they know what they're doing there's the old argument of "I'm using all four channels already". Anyway: not my call

I didn't know I'd joined an S&M group..... anyway...

I tend to have one box for combat, one box for kinchat and one box for group chat and tells, using the same method that Leggy already stated. In the unlikely event I join a raid (usually a warg pack) then i'll have another window for that. As to how I keep track of them all, I'm afraid that bit comes from years of playing text based online RPG's where you had multiple windows all scrolling at the same time. The ability to pick out what you need is a learned art.
