Getting blocked on Chatroulette: how the report button is getting used wrong

Anna Leach Fun Stuff, Trending 194 Comments

524 chatroulette blocked.jpg

If you thought Chatroulette was a free-wheeling site where you could just sit around peacefully flashing at strangers – think again. Users on the site can be blocked for inappropriate behaviour (as we pointed out back here) but from comments on our site it seems that the report button is frequently being used to block people that users just don’t fancy.

According to several commenters, fully-clothed men doing nothing offensive are getting unfairly blocked because chat partners decide they’d prefer an attractive woman. You think the guys would just F9 and move on, but no, apparently they prefer to block other men – thus reducing the number of other men on the site and by the same reasoning, increasing the proportion of women to men.

God almighty guys.

Here’s the comment:

David says:
“After getting blocked for the first time today for no real reason (just a clothed guy sitting here doing nothing remotely offensive, certainly don’t look offensive, and not getting to see any connection long enough to be considered “boring”), I discovered this is happening to may others as well. I think some of the pervs are looking for girls to “watch them” and are just clicking the “Report” button when they see yet another dude.”

Paul says:
“I fully agree with you their david, ive had the same thing happen to me 3 times already, im fully clothes, not doing anything remotely offensive, all i see is dudes and then block… its kinda pathetic really.”

David’s come up with some sort of solution:
“The block thing was a good idea, but isn’t working in practice. I’m not sure how they are tracking you (e.g. IP address, MAC address, etc.), but my recommendation would be to have a system more like stackoverflow where you can earn reputation points for not being obscene and then based on your reputation, anyone with less reputation can’t down vote you, or maybe their down vote is worth less than yours, or something. There just has to be something done to keep the pervs or just everyday people from reporting people for not being the proper sex.”

Anyone else had any experience of this?

    They could just permit people to only have, say, 1 ‘block’ per 10 minutes. Once you use it, it’s gone. As a guy who just uses the program when I’m bored as a way to pass the time and maybe meet interesting people, I have no problem just hitting ‘next’ when it’s some guy flashing himself or a porn loop or something.

    • jools

      its happened to me twice now and ive only just moved here.there is a girl in a black dress(i think its a girl)with long wavy dark brown hair,almost black and both times ive seen her she has got her boobs out then after a few seconds more i get booted?

  • nick

    happened to me just now. just have a head only in the screen and blocked…….

    I also have this same problem with roulette now. In the beginning one report was enough to block you for several minutes. Now its three in 5 minutes but I’m now for sure that the reportbutton is used as a nextbutton. For what reason, we’ll never know but pathetic it is. I’m also fully clothed, not doing any offensive stuff. My recommendation would be either:

    -1 block per 10 minutes or so (I’ve tested it in the name of science…it is now possible to press the reportbutton constantly and therefore use it as a Nextbutton. People who do this should be banned immediatly)

    -After 3 blocks within 5 minutes, let an admin check the webcam-image first before banning. (The least plausible option I guess)

    -Or the best option maybe…just remove this Reportbutton. It won’t ban out all wankers anyway. It’s a plague ;)

    I’ve had so much fun on Chatroulette for one week. Now it really sucks big time because I know I’m gonna be blocked sooner or later and you can’t tell what person reported you. It’s again another good example of how many people abuse nice services on the web, just to f*ck other people.

    If this holds on, Chatroulette will soon be a forgotten service that dissappeard as quickly as it came. (or end up as a peniswanker-only site….yeeeey)

      I couldn’t agree more with everything that “Dub” said. And yeah, they should have a timely check ups on people who appear to report someone excessively. Or, just as he stated, get rid of the report tab in all because offensive participators can easily be ignored or avoided by simply pressing the next botton

  • Mr Ptri

    Judging by the number of penises i saw within a span of 10 minutes id have to say perhaps anyone not doing anything offensive gets banned

    Why is blocking for?

  • Alexandra

    This has only happened to me twice but both times I was just sitting there, looking at my screen and waiting for another person to show up on the other end. I am a girl and maybe it was because I was fully clothed that I got blocked?

    Why not, whenever somebody hits the report/block button, have the system take a quick screencap and send it along with the information. This way, even if it doesn’t allow for better patrolling, they can gather information on whether the button is useful or not.

    The first time I got blocked it was 40 minutes and the second time it was only for 10. Anyone know why such a drastic difference in amount?

  • tisocial

    Right now in CR. Im a nice looking blonde girl. And i just saw c0cks in 10 minutes. If i report, button ain’t working. The easiest solution (I bet that even easy, nobody had it) is to ban 24 hours an animal reported 2 times IN A ROW by 2 dif users. Isn’t it?

    But I guess THINKING is not in the dictionary of that dude that only wants his money and lots of users…

    • jimmmyyyy

      nice looking blondie :P lol

  • Van

    happens to me all the time
    doing nothing offensive, suddenly i am blocked (fully clothed)

  • Stooge

    I have a fix for getting blocked. It’s easy and works every time. But I’m not telling because if everyone did it it would be fixed. But, trust me, if you’re half smart (hell, I figured it out and I’m less than half smart) you can find a work around.

    I get blocked a lot. Fully clothed and doing nothing offensive, but people seem to take offense anyway. Fukkem’.

    Then again, there’s always omegle which doesn’t block anything as long as you don’t mind hitting the button every time and the (all too frequent) captchas.

  • john

    i just was on chatroulette for about 20 mins and i got reported for absolutely freaking nothing, i was talking to a girl from iceland, then we both moved on, i got a wanker and he reported me, for what i guess was the third time in 15 mins? wtf? this is dumb.

  • PhiL

    Exactly the same thing happens to me.. Something has to be done about this, or chatroulette will lose “fans”.

  • PinkSombrero

    I was on chatroulette holding a sign asking people what they want me to draw for them, and i got reported. And then blocked for 20 minutes. Wtf?

  • Kaleb

    i got blocked today for no reason… i was just sitting there FULLY CLOTHED & not doing anything wrong then BAM ive was blocked

  • Xyfi

    Admin’s on a site like chatroulette aren’t realisable.

    Got blocked for 35 minutes -.-! Don’t people like my penis? It makes me insecure :( (kidding of course :P)

  • PiddlyD

    Just happened to me. Sitting with my pants and shirt on, watching mostly guys jacking off and dudes with emo haircuts, and suddenly I’m banned for 35 minutes. That basically sucks. If it turns into a tit-for-tat thing, it’ll get insane quickly.

  • Chris

    same thing just happened to me, I’m sitting in a chair playing guitar and all of the sudden i cant chat for another 30 minutes. that is ridiculous

  • OLLL

    Yup, same thing happend to me. But blocked for 30 mins!? It used to be 10 didnt it? Im fully clothed etc. Ah well.

  • Peter

    I also blocked for nothing. I’m full clothed.Thats shit.

  • http://lemonparty.org Johndoe

    Yeah, it’s actually really easy to get around the block.

    It’s not IP based blocking, and it’s not cookies.

    It’s flash based, so you should be able to figure this out people.

    Not spilling the beans

    • Ashley

      hey how do u do it?

    Me too. It said 10 minutes. I waited ten minutes, but nothing.

  • mikey

    i wasnt doing anything either and i’ve been waiting for 23 minutes now and it still says im blocked for ten. wt the heck?

  • Brandon

    Hey just so you guys know if you run Ccleaner or an equivalent app to wipe all your internet browsing data even seconds after the “block” happens you can get right back to the action. Hope it helps!

  • Johannes

    HI at all, I have the same Problem. By now I’m blocked for a hole day. But i didn’t do any perversities or something else. I think the point with giving positive or negative votes would be quite good. Best wishes.

  • Normal Guy

    Hi I like chatting on chatroulette because I frequently have long conversations with pretty girls that fancy a strong jaw line among other things and I too have been reported for never exposing(not even shirtless) or thinking to expose at worst I’ve asked women to show themselves after long periods of conversations but I’m fairly sure they were going to do it anyways and I’ve never been denied.

  • JoeH

    Happenned to me also, Last night. This Report/Block button is ridiculous. I’m just sitting here (Clothed, Nothing Offensive) Just looking to waste some time and/or Chat, but I get banned. This is not an improvement to the site, as far as I’m concerned. Hopefully they will change it back, that way, at least, it won’t be abused.

  • Ste

    blocked for no reason! just says blocked temporarily for nothing! great! guys block other guys because they are jealous!

    Yeh Johndoe ive tried everything! uninstalling everything, changing settings! Its not if i can move onto another site because thats the best one and its free! TELL US HOW YOU DO IT!

  • Fabian

    Just happebed to me tonight. I got blocked for absolutely no reason. I was just sitting, fully clothed, and then all of a sudden a stupid dude or who knows what reported me. The worst thing is that before CR displayed a button which allowed you to complain in case you were unfairly blocked. Now that button is gone and there’s nothing u can do in order to complain. This is totally unfair. CR will die if this goes on and they don’t take the time to check if there’s really a wanker out there or just a dude like me, doing nothing wrong.

  • http://zxc Gleb

    Hello. Same happened to me tonight. Tonight is the first time im using chatroulette. I was looking for an adequate person to talk, but i met only freaks or blackscreen’s…
    I was clothed all the time, but then i got the message that im “temporaly blocked”. I dont know what to do know or how to fix that unfair thing…

  • Marow

    Hey,

    Same here, it was the first time for me on chatroulette as well, then after chatting with some people i got banned. I was fully clothed, sitting around and not being offensive at all. The most people were naked or doing some pervert stuff, GOD there are some totally fckd up people in this crazy world. Please could you tell us how to unblock Chatroulette?

  • nc

    got blocked already for 24 hours for no reason! ..

  • Confused

    When you guys are getting blocked do you get this message:

    Your IP address has been banned on chatroulette for violations of our Terms of Service.
    You will now be redirected to a third party site.

    And then it redirects you to some porn site. It also showed my IP address and location at the top of the page (well, city and state location anyway). I’m kinda freaking out that they are logging this info and sending it to authorities or something. Is this the standard ban message nowadays?

  • Dale

  • chris

    i got banned about a week ago for nothing and it still wont let me back on..?

  • kyle

    whats the deal i got blocked too for no reason

  • Becca

    I think an admin should sit in on this site atleast 2 times a day & start blocking off people who aren’t clothed instead of letting the viewers themselves report. I mean, just cuz you hit report doesn’t mean you’re not going to see that pervs penis on your screen again. I got blocked, never done anything I wasn’t supposed to. Something needs to be done to the people being pathetic on cam instead of the ones bored looking for a conversation.

    Will we get a picture on CR later? To all of you who have your picture up, did it show up immediately or come later on?

      ive been ip banned plenty of times only once for flashing and that was back in the explosion of Chatrt. other than that i got banend from morons cuz they didnt like what i was doing dancing or playing with ppuppets.
      One time a girl flashed me and asked to see as soon as i showed she nexted me and it said it took a picture and my ip was reported but nothing happened after that. u should be fine unless your underage or showing to underage boy or girls.

    So I see today that my IP has been blocked from Chatroulette. Even though yesterday was the first time I have ever used it. Was on for about an hour until I got tired of seeing all the people jerking off.

    If I try access http://www.chatroulette.com it informs me my IP is blocked and is redirecting me to their thirdparty chat sites. Which is infact a adult porn video chat site!

    What the hell!!! That seems to be voiding their terms of service?? Bullshit!

  • alienproxy

    It happens to me all the time, but not before people scream the “N-word” at me and click [Report]. (I happen to be black.) I have never done anything offensive on Chatroulette.

    I think the solution is simply to have the Report process take longer than 30 seconds to complete. Guys who are hitting the Report button to reduce the number of male users also have an incentive to maintain their erection.

    It isn’t likely they will spend the time needed to fill out the report when clicking [Next] provides an instantaneous solution and keeps them in the cycle. At the moment “Report” is just as fast as hitting “Next”. This is a bad idea.

    i think its like advertising for their payed sites, sure its free up to a point
    always seem to be directed to pay sites

  • metled

    have payed people monitor the site who only have access to the report/block if there are retarded masturbators/flashers. otherwise a great site

  • Tom

    They should send a screenshot and the chatinfo to a admin, or at least someone who is in control of that site. becuase i got banned for 2 months for sitting in a three pieced suite, and then i mean a blouse, something in between and a jacket.

    i got nexted like 100 times before i actually ran into someone who didnt next me the first second they saw me, and i had a normal conversation like where you from. what you do for living, you like to go to a gun range, i prefer snowboarding etc. and then you get banned for 2 months

    i mean come one, get rid of the stupid report button or at least fix it so that people who are actually decent enough to not show their private parts enjoy the fun of chatroulette.

    the site was developed by a guy for the reason to talk to unknown people. and everyone presses next when they someone they dont like, so no report button needed.

    and here is a extra, when you get banned you get re-directed to a fucking webcamsite where all kinds of sad girls sit that want to go in a private session with you so you can actaully show your cock to them and jerk of.

    So come on, Andrey Ternovskiy (guy who thought of chatroulette)
    take control of your own site and unban the decent people and ban the onley people and get rid of the fucking redirecting part towards a site for sad people

    Same guy as above, i went on chatroulette using a ninjacloak (mean it hides my ip adress, too bad i cant use my webcam so the site doesnt works 100% )

    i went to the site and clicked frequently asked questions and this is what was also their:

    Question:
    I am seeing the message “Your IP address is banned” when I am trying to access Chatroulette.
    Answer:
    Someone using your IP address (potentially you or a member of your household) has violated the Chatroulette Terms of Service, and anyone using the IP address is ineligible to use Chatroulette until the ban is lifted.

    i got a completely banned i have like 15 days and i didn’t get naked as many people do and im seeing that the bans are for less than an hour what could i do?

  • Anon

    How do you know how long your suspension is?

  • Dx

    Got a random notice come up on woc-chat the alternative saying. You have vialated the terms and something about report ip adress and your isp will be informed and to stay where i am because the police will be in touch in 60min. Is this just to scare me?

  • marc

    i just got blocked also, i guess it’s because im not sitting here naked, wanking myself off. anyway, i get redirected to a new chatroulette adult site, cradult dot com. has this happened to anyone else?

  • marc

    Just a quick FYI to the last entry (same name) the site i got redirected to requested a measly amount ($10 – £6.50) to join. it may be hijacked – or a playing the numbers game hoping they get enough sign-ups per month to justify. i guess it would be easy enough to monitor traffic per conversation. us deemed not worthy of the beautiful crowd hit for a fee maybe??? just my 2 bits worh. either way, chatroulette is a great concept, but obviously spoiled. lets face it, all who have been banned, ratio of online time in chatroulette to actual interesting conversations – its very slim.

    I suspect the porn site makes good money and is realated to chatroulette in the bank..

  • alexandria

    i’m a 18 year old girl, i was having a nice convo with someone, showed them my ferret, we were both laughing and had been talking for almost 10 min when suddenly it said my ip was blocked, it took me to another website, an “adult” chatroulette and redirects me there every timme i try to get on chatroulette, i’ve been blocked since 12 last night, it’s 7:40 now.
    what the fuck is going on? this is such bullshit! someone please help me, i love chatroulette! :(

  • april

    i love it its good meeeting nice people on it next min i was blocked wtffffff does anyone know how i can make another account up

  • Stu

    I was just mucking around on my snowboard fully clothed with big snowboard pants and all on and i got blocked wtf?>

  • SnugglePuma

    Same here, got banned for NOT having my dick out on cam. I wonder how 50% of the people I came across could have their dick out and not get banned? The irony is after being banned you a redirected to a porn site as if to say “this is a better place for people like you” FYI, the ban is currently tied to your IP address. The only way around would be to use a proxy server or unplug your modem and wait a few minutes, then you MIGHT get a new IP.

    I had a better experience! A girl teased me showing her tits and pussy. When I “engaged” in the game, the bitch blocked me!!

  • anomy

    also been blocked on the way you had anonymous. Will there be police on my front door?

  • Anonymous

    I’ve had this too. I was sitting there, admittadly without a shirt…but its blocked me? Is it something I should be worried about?

  • Anonymous

    i didn’t show anything, just put a “wanna see my duck” on white screen as a joke and turn it into a picture of a real duck.
    got blocked and it’s been about a month. for how long can they block people anyway?

  • anonymous

    has anything happened to anyone that was banned for masturbating?

  • the jerk

    i lost my wife and family thx to chat roulette,i was feeling lonely 1 day when my mrs was away so i started jacking off to some pretty girls on chat roulette,not only did i get blocked,but it put a picture of me with my cock out on the opening page,i freaked out and hid my laptop,but my wife had hers and when she came home one of my kids went on her laptop and saw me in all my glory,she was horrified and threw me out,i am homeless now and would sue chatroulette except it would be too embarrassing if this went public,i still live with the humiliation and i think my soon to be ex has told everyone in the village about my lack of judgement

  • Dan_town

    I just got blocked aswel. IP forwarded me to some other Adult chat site where I could flash. But all I did was dance with full clothing on. I must be a real threat to some of these other internet dwellers. The only reason I do this becouse I practice dancing, Chat with some ppl and get coments and work out at the same time.

    I just got a 3 day block for playing guitar (fully clothed,I must add)

  • Alfred

    Blocked forever it seems, unless I go through with their fun new “community service” campaign. Turns out that wearing a mask will get you banned for some odd reason, at least that’s the appeal I’m making because that’s the only reason I can logically think of that I was banned for. Anyways, their new system involves you “cleaning up the site” by clicking all images with people naked or half-naked, or being sexually explicit. I clicked all images that fit that criteria, and ended up being suspended from their community service because I was supposedly clicking the wrong images. Yep, chatroulette lost my attention due to their poor mistreatment of a user following their rules to get himself unblocked due to a fair-ban. ChatRoulette: Soon to be a ghost-town.

  • Aric

    This is ridiculous. I’m not on this site 24/7 but it’s just something i do for fun and i got on it once for some fun and i tried to get on again and i had been blocked?!?! NOT FAIR!

  • chatroulettesucks

    I got banned for like 800 hours for using the E-trade baby and manycam -_- thankfully it was an ip ban and i know how to change my ip fairly easily.

  • Mauricio

    I’m in the military and stationed in the middle of nowhere, and now I’m banned for no reason! WTF? Now I have nothing to do. . . Anyone know how to get unbanned or at least another similar free site? =

  • TheNetherlands

    I’m also banned for no reason, and I may know what caused the ban. I have a 32 inch TV at the end of my bed hooked up to my pc, and that means I have to lay in bed with my keyboard and mouse to see the screen. Now people may be startled by it but I swear I dont go under the sheets and have my clothes on. I like to use Omegle now, you dont even have to have a webcam but you can choose to also video

    Happened to me a little while ago. I was wearing a hoodie and everything. And still got blocked. Now I have to do that stupid community service thing to get un-blocked…

    i wasnt doing anything offensive yet im blocked from the site like others by the sound of it

  • Ben

    This is stupid. Left for 5minutes and i come back and im blocked :O not cool man

  • Aaron

    This just happened to me, i was actually recording the reactions of others to a simple, fair joke, no abuse or violations of any of the sites “Terms and Conditions” and was blocked. Does anyone know of a moderator, or admin, that i could contact to show my evidence and try and bring this “block” issue to light?

  • Nobody

    My first time using chatroulette was yesterday. I’m female. I was banned after a good 3 hour conversation. Now, I know the guy didn’t ban me… I don’t even see the report button anymore actually, all there is is a ‘report spam’ button… and it can’t be 3 reports in 5 min either. I have no idea how to get back on the site… I’ve done all the ipconfig /release, renew, flushdns, anything I can think of. I’ve tried the changing the day thing too. Why the hell am I being blocked. I think it’s just a site for men who want to show each other their dicks… and any girls are just getting booted. Get rid of the whole system of reporting, next does the same job… there’s so many people on the site you’re unlikely to find them again anyway. Get rid of the report spam button too, if that’s how I got banned by some retard who can’t understand English and thought it was a next button… because people can bloody well next spam too. Wtf is with being redirected to porn when supposedly they’re against porn. Stupid hypocrites. They should get sued for that, if some underage person gets redirected to porn by them.

  • Ann

    I am a 19 year old girl, who would never even dream of flashing ANYONE! I would NEVER do it! I have self-respect! I just go on chatroulette when I’m bored, or for example, now, when I’m sick and have to stay home. All of a sudden it says my IP address is marked and I’m banned…
    This report button needs to be reconsidered! Then again… I won’t be able to procrastinate with chatroulette anymore?

  • Olivia

    I hadn’t been on Chatroulette in a few months. I meandered over to it because Omegle’s video chat was glitching on my computer. I don’t flash, I don’t do anything offensive, and it says my IP is banned due to inappropriate content, but that I could do “community service,” which was either clicking on all the nude pictures (you have to get 1000) or identifying the genders of current Chatrouletters (the catch was if you missed three in a row, your counter was reset, and you only had a limited number of “Not Visible or Multiple People”). Chatroulette is getting ridiculous. All their provisions are completely unnecessary.

  • Rush

    I just got blocked for the first time today….said I wouldn’t be able to use the site for 300 minutes….300 f’n minutes (5 hours)….are you kidding me? Anyone else been locked out this long? Went back after 5 hours and it happened again, same amount of time…chatrandom is starting to look even better!

  • Andy

    Bans on Chatroulette are unbelievable. Banned for no reason and have to click on 1000 pictures of perverts to get unbanned? Or a nigh on impossible job of clicking on male or female pictures when most don’t even have a recognisable person or anyone at all in them? WTF? Can’t even contact them. So now I’m banned and untold legions of perverts jerking off are not???? This sucks big time, and so do the alternatives.

  • Johnny2001gr

    Leave chatroulette is my proposal, ban is to make u stick on more to chatroulette no matter if u r clothed, they earn money with every click on naked or m/f they will not unban u. You will be clicking on naked persons until u die!!!!!  Leave these Russians alone… They earn money without offer something!

  • Shiba Inu

    I just got banned for the first time. Did absolutely nothing wrong… I've got a few pictures in place of my webcam, and just acting friendly, saying “Hello….How are you today?” and the next thing I know, I'm being told that I have to click 1000 perverts so I can be unbanned. It's fucking bullshit.

    I got banned for coloring My Little Ponies. Seriously? i'm a clothed 17 girl who isn't even on the cam, just coloring ponies to make people smile. 

  • geust

    Got banned tonight because some jerk (with his shirt and pants off with his hand down his underwear) reported me when I told him to get some close on.

  • anonymous

    the people who are complaining that they've been banned for 5 hours, or 2 days, well some of us, like me, have been banned for ever untill we do this stupid community service thing where you click on perverts 300 TIMES, and chatroulette doesnt even confirm them -.- i was banned for NO reason, im a girl, fully clothed, and was just talking to strangers, doing nothing wrong -.- ugh. 

  • No

    I got blocked because some roid raged UFC fan boy can't handle the fact that there are “nerds” who use the computer. When this service inevitably crashes and burns, I hope no one is stupid enough to ask why.

  • Claudette

    I just got blocked a moment ago, maybe because she was a lesbian and im hella straight, that beach! haha! Im freaking fully clothed and covering my face why the fudge blocking me >:(!

     Many products are available for drop shipping and people tend to feel more comfortable with something they can actually touch. Here too any physical products offered? should have relevancy to the theme of the blog platform or the subject of an update LV Outlet. Once again placing a link within a post or even using an ad located on the perimeter of the page is typically how these offers are made available! 

  • Danielle

    If you're banned just switch off your internet hub/modem and switch it back on.  This resets your IP address so you can go straight back on

  • Cannonfodder_20

     just been banned as well and all i do is mess around with a scary movie mask on (the one with tounge sticking out) oh and im fully clothed i was enjoying having a laugh on there :(

  • Dominikk B

    Anyone who's going to chatroulette to try and find someone to chat to is a moron. I tried it two times and approximately 85% of the partners were cocks on screen. I wasn't even looking to chat with a girl, I was just bored and looking for anyone amusing, but the rest 15% just skipped me, so I rage quit. Charoulette is good if you want to see a bunch of small cocks. Omegle is no different. That goes for any other similar site as well.

  • Guest165988

    I get on Chatroulette when im bored and i was on there about an hour ago and i cant even imagine flashing somebody because I respect myself! All of a sudden it says something about a IP adress and being banned. im super scared its gonna send something or my parents find out, and knowing my parents they wot believe me if i told them i didnt do it! Shoul i be worried! Please help!!!!!!

  • Watzupdude_03

    YEAH!! FUCKING UNFAIR!! 

  • Darian

    I was banned as well! For no reason at all? I was fully clothed and just sitting there and know they want me to click on perverts!

  • Jonathan

    I get on every once in a while and TRY to find someone whos not crazy as shit to talk to.. i drink a beer and maybe smoke a cigg.. but never get naked or do anything offensive (unless beer and smokes are offensive) but nothing worthy of getting banned. 700!!!!! correct selections in a row…. FML guess im never getting on dickroulette agin

  • dosent matter

    You fucking Rock…

  • jeremy

    not sure why i was banned but im not going to go through and identify 700 people's gender… fuck that

  • maria

    im 17 and female. i went on it because my friends use it a lot and i was bored. and after having to deal with a bunch of pervs (not all) ,IM THE ONE WHO GETS BLOCKED?!i was polite to everyone, didn't do anything offensive and didn't display any sexual content.why the hell did i get blocked?!

  • Joy

    no fix so far i even format my laptop and the ip is change but the same problem i think because iam using a router so even if we change the IP they still can get us from the router information, the solution is try to contact Chatroulette team, that's it when you band its over you can just press next and no one can see you..

  • castro

    chatroulette sucks .GETTING BANNED FOR NO REASON. back to omegle

  • Emily

    I'm a girl, i was wearing full clothes doing nothing offensive, just trying to talk to people, then i came upon someone and it said i was blocked, i refreshed the page and i was told to select which camera is doing to sexual things. I don't understand at all.

    • me!!

      Same happend to be. Douchbags. Didnt do shit, and all of a sudden im banned. Like, that the hell….

  • Emily

    I really don't understand why i got banned either ! How do we prevent this without having to download something?

  • omg

    its so freaking stupid

  • Amy

    im on my 3rd ban for doing……. magic tricks that people really like. It's pathetic. I do optical illusions and people will sit there and watch and be blown away and then all the sudden some dudes junk will pop up or i'll be getting applause from a group of people ive moved on to and all the sudden im banned. Not once have I shown any nudity or done anything illegal. The kicker is the gender identifier has more penisies in it than actually scrolling thru chatroulette. They have to do something about this. Also got reported because i WOULDNT show my boobs to a perv on there, so i get banned and the perv gets to stay. So frustrating. I may just move over to omegle.

  • Amy

    by the way, if you want to get around the ban without the “community service” use expatshield. just google it and download the application, it masks your IP from chatroulette.

    • Um…

      didn't work for me?

  • freedomOfSpeeach

    What kind of Nazi are you? What about a freedom of speech and expression? If someone does not like what he/she sees then they should move on!!!! What a stupid idea to earn some credibility points… What a stupid idea to ban someone in the middle of conversation without any prior warning…

  • rahrah

    im a 24 yr old guy. was on for like 5 mins just now and saw a bunch of me and about 2 girls. as i was typing 'hi' inn they all 'next' me and before you know it iv been banned for being inappropriatehaha :D who ever thought of that system is an idiot.
