For example,I am a beginner when it comes to making pets too, and I intend to go back over my logs of the session and try and resurrect my little pet Meowse. I suspect from someone else's email that Susanne may have absconded with him. Or maybe he was swept away into the cyberdustbin, as I went off and left him. Well, whatever, I think your inability to realize affects may be because you weren't logged on as a member. We've documented how to log on, but someone, how do you become a member of Tapped In?

> The iVisit part wasn't a problem, because I'd tried it a few times before. Though I have a Quick cam, I've never been able to see video of other people. I only get still images.
