When you first connect to HIHO you will start out in the “anteroom” channel. You will be required to either show a copy of your dues card or have another member vouch for you in order to gain access. Before being admitted, you must also change your displayed name to your real name. You are also encouraged to include titles (e.g. PG, PDDGM, PGM) or your jurisdiction (e.g. CA, MA, WA) in your displayed name. After setting your name and proving you are a member you will be admitted to the full set of channels.
