You can :
  1. Send chats : you just have to enter the text in the dedicated input field and then to validate it by pushing the return key ou by clicking on the OK button.
  2. Format the chats :
  3. once you un-collapse the chatbox formatting toolbar by clicking on the BBCode button, you have access to different formatting options for your chats. You can format a chat by selecting a part (or the totality) of it and then select one of the buttons/list. You can also add empty formatting tags by selecting nothing and clicking one of the buttons/menu thus allowing you to add the chat text afterwards between these tags.*
  4. Access to the different channels : you can have access to different channels restricted to only some usergroupds or for specifics use of the chatbox. The different channels are accessible from the buttons on the left of the chatbox.*
  5. Edit your chats (or others chats) : the edition of a chat can be done by a simple double-click on it.*
  6. Use specific commands : some commands can be accessible in the chatbox depending on the will of the administrator(s) of your forum. These commands let you execute specific actions of formatting, management, etc... You will herebelow the information on the command which are accessible to you. You must notice that you are not forced to use the command prefixes (/command_name) when you use them in the channel they are attached to (except in the general channel).*
* : Depending on the settings chosen by the administrator(s) of the forum, you might not have access to all these features.

    I would start off with a personal anecdote. Mention a story that happened when you were younger. But if you want only a sentence, quotes work really well too.

    How about this...."One first impression people have of me is........."

    I am going to start my speech by telling you I am a teenage girl in 7th grade. OR I want to let you know I have a very interesting life so far.

    speech class...i loved that class.
    heres a few ideas.

    you could start out with a story from your childhood or something more recent...but it has to be something that changed you and molded you into who you are today.

    You could start out with a question, which is one of my favorites...like...."To describe who I am, I would have to take you back to (childhood story here) where so and so happened and made me the (name here) i am today. without that event or person i would be somebody entirely different. but instead this event tilled up the soil of my being and planted new seeds that rooted and grew into the person i have become.
    (you get the idea...maybe not the seed thing but who knows...that might work for you...)

    you could also start out with a quote from a person you know or a famous individual.

    you could make it very pop styled and start with a quote from a hit song. and then detail how it describes you..

    the possibilities are endless. But i agree with your teacher, Hi my name is... is a very rediculous way to start out a speech. You may never even need to say your name unless it is a requirement.
    hope everything goes well!

    Writing a good introduction
    A good paper introduction is fairly formulaic. If you follow a simple set of rules, you can write a very good introduction. The following outline can be varied. For example, you can use two paragraphs instead of one, or you can place more emphasis on one aspect of the intro than another. But in all cases, all of the points below need to be covered in an introduction, and in most papers, you don't need to cover anything more in an introduction.

    Paragraph 1: Motivation. At a high level, what is the problem area you are working in and why is it important? It is important to set the larger context here. Why is the problem of interest and importance to the larger community?

    Paragraph 2: What is the specific problem considered in this paper? This paragraph narrows down the topic area of the paper. In the first paragraph you have established general context and importance. Here you establish specific context and background.

    Paragraph 3: "In this paper, we show that ...". This is the key paragraph in the intro - you summarize, in one paragraph, what are the main contributions of your paper given the context you have established in paragraphs 1 and 2. What is the general approach taken? Why are the specific results significant? This paragraph must be really really good. If you can't "sell" your work at a high level in a paragraph in the intro, then you are in trouble. As a reader or reviewer, this is the paragraph that I always look for, and read very carefully.

    You should think about how to structure this one or two paragraph summary of what your paper is all about. If there are two or three main results, then you might consider itemizing them with bullets or in test (e.g., "First, ..."). If the results fall broadly into two categories, you can bring out that distinction here. For example, "Our results are both theoretical and applied in nature. (two sentences follow, one each on theory and application)"

    Paragraph 4: At a high level what are the differences in what you are doing, and what others have done? Keep this at a high level, you can refer to a future section where specific details and differences will be given. But it is important for the reader to know at a high level, what is new about this work compared to other work in the area.

    Paragraph 5: "The remainder of this paper is structured as follows..." Give the reader a roadmap for the rest of the paper. Avoid redundant phrasing, "In Section 2, In section 3, ... In Section 4, ... " etc.

    A few general tips:

    Don't spend a lot of time into the introduction telling the reader about what you don't do in the paper. Be clear about what you do do, but don't dwell here on what you don't do.
    Does each paragraph have a theme sentence that sets the stage for the entire paragraph? Are the sentences and topics in the paragraph all related to each other?
    Do all of your tenses match up in a paragraph?
