Here we see Eve creating a chatroom:

From the menu of her Psi-Plus XMPP client, Eve selects "Join Groupchat".

Eve configures her room. She wants her room to be discoverable by the public, so she puts an interesting title, description, and checks the box to include the chatroom in public lists.

Here Eve sets the topic for the room. This message will be displayed to people as they enter the room.

From Eve's contact list, she finds her friend Bob and sends him an invitation. If a chatroom has a password the password will be included with the invitation.

Bob receives the invitation and by clicking "Accept" he joins the chatroom.
