I can not broadcast my webcam.

 

Please go to "help" on the top of the chat and click the cam/mic settings option. Click the cam icon and select your webcam input. If you are using a computer with onboard cam you may need to select the USB cam input option. Also, go to the monitor icon in settings and ensure that you have allowed system access.

 

Some members also use third party software to resolve webcam issues. Some options are webcammax.com and manycam.com software. Please note that when using third party software that you must select the software webcam driver in the flashplayer settings as previously described.

What are STARS?

 

Chat STARS my be received from other members if you are a registered member. Each STAR received places one chat credit into your member profile account. Chat credits may be used for flirts, membership upgrades or sending STARS to other members.

 

 

Guest login vs. Member Profile Login.

 

 

You are welcome to use a guest login for your fun in chat. However, a member profile will allow you to receive  chat STARS (free credits) from friends in chat. A guest login will not give you access to chat STARS.

 

Members can secure their member profile name so that it may be used for future logins. This will help you create a recognizable identity with friends in chat. Once a name is secured to a member profile it may not be used in chat by other guests or members.

 

Members have access to upgrade features because they can give and receive chat STARS. A member upgrade will allow the use of color text, create private chat rooms, participate in private chats and view up to four webcams simultaneously.

 

Chat members may create and host chat rooms. The function is available by clicking the "create/modify a room" at the upper right of the chat.

 

 

How do I place someone on "ignore"?

 

 

You may either click the [x] next to the person's name in text chat or click their name in the userlist, and in the webcam view's "options" choose the ignore feature. The ignored person will be removed from your chat environment. They will not be able to view your webcam or text. Also, you will not be able to view their webcam or text. If everyone in a chat room decides to ignore the same person that person would essentially be removed from all room activity. This is a form of social moderation of a chat room designed to give people the collective power to have influence over their chat environment and experience.
