Hey did I miss something about how the chatter development environment is supposed to work?

I've been trying to get to the Development part of chatter and I'm having trouble. I don't see anything that says Setup | Customize | Chatter | Feed Tracking in fact I noticed in my user profile that I'm a Chatter Dev Standard User I think this may have something to do with it can anyone help me?


The Chatter Dev Zone is an multi-user org to try Chatter from a user standpoint. If you want to administer Chatter settings, you should have received a second login to your own private DE org with Chatter enabled. Then you can see how to setup feeds, etc.


If not, signup again at developer.force.com/chatter


Hope that helps,




username@chatterdevzone.org <= user you can use to log into Chatter Dev Zone and test out Chatter with other developers and developer evangelists


username@chatterdev.org <= user you can use to develop things  (this type is not limited to usernames @chatterdev.org)


It took me a while to figure out how to do this too. 


Here is how you get a DE org with Chatter:


1 - Signup for the Chatter Developer Zone



2 - Check your email for a login to the Chatter Developer Zone


3 - Login


4 - On the first page "Start Here", there is a link to "Get a Chatter Development Environment". Once you do this, you'll get your OWN org to work on chatter projects in. See the screenshot below.
