Is it possible to have an area on the screen which can not be seen by others? Say people wanted to have the ability to take private notes during a fcs meeting.

The simplest way to do private notes would be to use a local shared object and an input text field. This way each user would have their own personal notepage.

Meaning these notes would be simple flash things and wouldn't deal with the server at all. Unless of course you wanted to share them, and created a way to send your notes to another user or "compare notes".

comparing the connection username with the username that are been viewed is an easy alternative. Lets say the user connects as this:

client_nc.connect("blahblah/thisroom/",_root.User.text);

If u have a variable set to who the note, area or mc belongs to, u can check that variable with the own user:

if(_root.User.text!=myNote.userId){
myNote._visible=false;
}

For more complex stuff u could try to mess arround with the components. I tried with the presentetion text, and made it function as a profile settings thing that can be viewed at realtime (users see when others changes). Try it out in the link, click on a username under the avatars, u can only modifye your own.
