    965                                 On most IM-networks groupchats can be started using the /join command. (<emphasis>/join #foo</emphasis> to start a chatroom with you and <emphasis>foo</emphasis>) This doesn't work with names groupchats though (which exist on Jabber networks and AIM, for example), instead you can use this command.

    968                         <para>
    969                                 The first two arguments are required. <emphasis>room name</emphasis> is the name of the chatroom on the IM-network. <emphasis>channel name</emphasis> is the IRC channel name BitlBee should map this to. <emphasis>room nickname</emphasis> is the nickname you want to have in this channel. If you don't give these options, BitlBee will do the right guesses.

    973                                 The following command will join you to the chatroom called <emphasis>bitlbee@conference.bitlbee.org</emphasis>. The channel will be called <emphasis>&amp;bitlbee-help</emphasis> because <emphasis>&amp;bitlbee</emphasis> will already be in use. Your nickname will be <emphasis>help-me</emphasis>.

    71 If you want to start a groupchat with the person <emphasis>lisa_msn</emphasis> in it, just join the channel <emphasis>#lisa_msn</emphasis>. BitlBee will refuse to join you to the channel with that name, but it will create a new virtual channel with root, you and lisa_msn in it.
     71To open a groupchat, use the <emphasis>chat with</emphasis> command. For example,  to start a groupchat with the person <emphasis>lisa_msn</emphasis> in it, just type <emphasis>chat with lisa_msn</emphasis>. BitlBee will create a new virtual channel with root, you and lisa_msn in it.

    75 Of course a channel with only two people isn't really exciting yet. So the next step is to invite some other people to the channel. For this, you can use the <emphasis>/invite</emphasis> command of your IRC client. Please do keep in mind that all the people have to be on the same network and contact list! You can't invite Yahoo! buddies into an MSN groupchat.
     75Then, just use the ordinary IRC <emphasis>/invite</emphasis> command to invite more people. Please do keep in mind that all the people have to be on the same network and contact list! You can't invite Yahoo! buddies into an MSN groupchat.

    79 Some protocols (like Jabber) also support named groupchats. BitlBee now supports these too. You can use the <emphasis>join_chat</emphasis> command to join them. See <emphasis>help join_chat</emphasis> for more information.
     79Some protocols (like Jabber) also support named groupchats. BitlBee now supports these too. You can use the <emphasis>chat add</emphasis> command to join them. See <emphasis>help chat_add</emphasis> for more information.
