Welcome Chatroulorians! (If you didn’t get the reference, ask one of your geeky friends. If you don’t have a geeky friend, well… you’re missing out. :)) We first and foremost hope you enjoy your time here but ask that you follow our:
Rules (this is the important part, only 4 rules!)
Rule #1: You do not talk about… wait, wrong list… let us start again…
Violation of the rules may result in you being banned from the site.
The following items are NOT allowed, with NO exceptions:
No adult or sexual content in Filtered Chat;
No children or minors in Random/Unfiltered Chat;
Do not show any illegal activities; and
Do notadvertise anything.
In addition to the rules, there are a few guidelines we also have for using the site. These are suggestions to help make the Chatroulette experience better for you and your fellow Chatroulorians.
Guidelines (tl;dr - be nice to your partner and report bad stuff!)
Please report any rule violations (click the ‘Report/Ad/Illegal’ button!);
When in doubt ask for consent from your partner;
Treat your partner the way you want to be treated;
If it’s your first time on Chatroulette… you have to chat… Well, not really; but it’s better if you do :)
Congratulations! You’re half-way through the legal stuff!
Work In Progress (tl;dr - it may break!)
We are actively working to improve the site for our users (that means you)!
We appreciate your patience as we test out various ideas over the coming weeks (sorry if you find any bugs), and please send any feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How this impacts the application:
You may see surveys pop-up and ask you questions; and
New features may appear as we test them and then disappear later.
So what are we testing out right now?
Partner blurring -
This feature blurs the video stream of your partner when you start your chat session;
You can click the ‘Unblur’ button to see the video stream clearly whenever you want;
This feature only changes what you see and not what your partner sees; and
Your partner does not know if you have them blurred or not.
Liking your partner -
Clicking the ‘Like’ button adds a confirmation box to click when you want to end your conversation so that you don’t accidentally disconnect;
Your partner does not know if you have clicked the ‘Like’ button or not; and
When you and your partner both click the ‘Like’ button, we will try to match you together again when you both start chat sessions next time.
Gender selection -
There are a number of different options you can choose (please be patient as we survey for options to use); and
We will be testing match-making capabilities based on these options (expect bugs).
