Typing things in Chinese characters
I am unsure where to find a good online keyboard for Mandarin. I am aware that Chinese keyboards are massive, but it is becoming slightly annoying as my proficiency in Mandarin develops - I'd really love to join a Mandarin-speaking message board or forum. All the best ^^
Chinese keyboards are massive? What are you talking about? image
Just install a Chinese input method editor, i.e. search for "install Chinese IME" and follow the instructions.
Sorry, you asked for an online IME:

当然你得懂那么一点我们的语言才行，或者找个英文同样好的小伙伴，开启你的QQ或微信畅聊之旅。 Of course you have to understand a little bit of our language. Or find a good English partner to open your QQ or WeChat communication journey.
