Chatroulette: Basically, three people in last 5 minutes didn’t like what you have broadcasted

Date: April / 02 / 2010 + Comments: 55

Chatroulette has implemented a new Security System against some disturbing people in the service, or users who are just annoying, disrespecting the community rules, or just for being plain boring.

If 3 users in 5 minutes press the button: Report (F2), you (your IP) are banned from the service, and this message will pop everytime you will try to use it:

Basically, three people in last 5 minutes didn’t like what you have broadcasted and that’s why you’ve lost this game. You’ve been blocked for 40 minutes.

Update: Now the time is 10 minutes.

Looking at the Chatroulette’s XML Code the time of being blocked is a variable, so it won’t always be 40 minutes, maybe if more people report you it can be higher.

… You’ve been blocked for $_OPTIONS_BAN_TIME_MIN minutes.

The only solution to manage a HUGE COMMUNITY is giving some powers to the users.

    Chatroulette was a lot of fun and what not until I got banned for no apparent reason. Should be when reporting people a form pops up that will take a couple of minutes to fill out for the person you are reporting. A lot of those who are just abusing the report button will be discouraged because of the time it will take to fill out the form.

    Unless that already happens?

    Wow, this rule sucks. I ran into some guys that asked me to take my top off, I said no and they reported me, and now I’m banned PERMANENTLY.

    Chat roulette is now very very corrupt since a proxy doesn’t work either. (just like mibbit)

    I’ve been banned for 3 days for no reason. We need to boycott chatroulette for doing this, besides they invade your privacy by taking a picture of you without your concent. There are many other programs out there like chatroulette, I won’t bother with chatroulette’s bs.

    chatroulette is SHIT.

    I thought I’d try it after seeing trytzy having a laugh on it…

    I was fully clothed.. not trolling.. I had to endure lots of men masturbating…

    then I was banned for 24 hours.

    Not one conversation.

    Chatroulette… you are shit.
