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

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?

  • I was blocked from CR, because some users report me, In my profile says “No dirty stuff, no sex” ..

  • i actually have something to say about chatroulette, this is based on a idea I came up with and others probably would understand. basically, you can’t have just one account, so let’s say you have three phone numbers to verify three accounts right? so then I log into first account, after about 10 people go by my account is blocked for 24 hours. so just unplug the modem and let it reset, then second account. the idea of unplugging the modem is to use idea of static ip, and basically the ip changes a little and second account can open and not be attached to the first. so anyhow after a few people my second account gets blocked aso for 24 hours so same process and onto third account, again, a few people go by and blocked for 24 hours. so this is 3 times I’m going through this on a night I try and enjoy chat roulette and half the time I’m not even on the camera because I step away. so my account is getting blocked half the time and I’m not even on the camera. overall there is no solution though, if you remove the report button then all the pervs roam free like all the other chat cam sites, and if you keep the report button people will abuse it.

  • there seems to be a resurgence of this lately…i’ve been an avid user for years and this just started happening within the last week.

  • Same! I was playing piano (let it go) for everyone, wearing cloth, and many people were enjoying it! But then I got banned while playing my piano!! :(

  • 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.

  • 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…

  • 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.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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..

  • 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?!

  • 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

  • yeh lol i was like ''How ppl can show their penis without getting banned'' like 2 mins later i got banned for no reason like wtf

  • 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!

  • 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!!!!!!

  • 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.

  •  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 :(

  • 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

  •  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! 

  • 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 >:(!

  • 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.

  • 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. 

  • 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.

  • 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. 

  • 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

  • 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!

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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?

  • 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’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

  • 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? =

    -Army Guy

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • yesterday i waz on chatroulette and my freinds and i were just chating and then it just blocked me we didnt do any thing we alll we did i skiped to a different person and something poped out and i went back on and im blocked and i didnt go on any more

  • 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 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

  • 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?

  • 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?

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

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

  • 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

  • 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 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?

  • 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?

  • 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?

  • 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.

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

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

  • I wasn’t on for two weeks, and when I got back on last week, it said that my IP was blocked… wth? I didn’t even do anything. Haven’t been able to get on since. And I haven’t been blocked before… I thought there was like, a warning system with the blocks, first a couple of minutes, then a couple of days, than for good.

  • awwwww today i got blocked for no reason (fully clothed) and it was my first time n chatroullette -.- is there any way i can get back to it?? besides i saw many pervs and still didnt report them…
    unfairrrr!!!

  • well since we are all clean chatters… or atleast we are telling everyone we are clean chatters we shud just add each other on msn or something and chat without having having to see fat guys wanking off…. anyone up for the idea…

  • I think they should copy the ISP of both the blocker and blocked, combine that with a frame capture to determine grounds, and we can block the abusers instead. any programmers listening?

  • 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.

  • yeah i hardly go on i was on last ngiht dancing with sunglasses on, wiht some music on. and today i go on and it said my IP is blocked WTF???

    • i dont think they can do anything, cuz i t is a troll site now so they cant probably tell for sure if its a person. i could eb wrong though

      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.

  • A friend of mine was a bit drunk and flashed her boobs on chatroulette. We then got this message:

    “Notice
    Your IP is marked for redirection because of a possible violation of our terms

    You’ll be sent to a third party site in 2 seconds”

    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?

    Very thankful for replies
    /Melissa

  • i held a sign saying ‘naked dudes suck’. got blockd after 15 minutes or so, guess the pervs take revenge this way. Now i must seek social contact in real life, damn

  • it’s ridiculous! i was chatting just using a gnome as my profile picture and i get banned. Who would block a gnome? They are awesome, and this is insulting.
    Maybe if i grow a cock and jack off in front on the camera i’ll be able to use the site!!

  • >>>>>>>> Its me from above ! My bann was lifted ! Im so greatfull ! Im still going to stay away from that website, and never do something so stupid ever again!

  • >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> I got banned from chatroulette and it has a picture of me doing my business! my family can see it on their computers! how long does it take to go? somebody help please. i have got without sleep for 5 nights now just worrying. please

  • >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> I got banned from chatroulette and it has a picture of me doing my business! my family can see it on their computers! how long does it take to go? somebody help please. i have got without sleep for 5 nights now just worrying. please

  • I’m from Portugal and i’ve been banned for good from CR, i was fully clothed and someone reported me. it was like 2 months ago. I waited till today. I wanna know how do i do to get unblocked….i did nothing wrong!

  • I have successfully unblocked myself 3 times now, it’s pretty simple. And no, I did not need a proxy.

  • i got blocked and is wont let me bet back on… i wasnt even at my computer when it happened. I went on then left to talk to a kid in my dorm for like 5 minutes then when i came back it said i had been broadcasting adult content? i wasnt even at my computer..

  • Its just stupid sistem , am always press report button , a think many people do the saime.And thats why alot of people get ban , a even dont have camera and am banned

  • wtf wtf i got blocked too jus for like dancing, it was funny for lots people wtf wtf is there a proxy that can let you get passed this?

  • I want to ask when they block you, is this for ever or it is for some time and then you can use it again?
    I only use this site 2 times…
    if anyone knows please let me know!
    thank you guys!

  • ughhhh i got blocked too! after like an hour and a half conversation with this kid. it just randomly blocked me and ended our conversation :/ unless he blocked me but i dont think he did. anyway its really annoying and i’m hoping i can get back on eventually……..

  • 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.

  • i had my friend over and he was being hilarious trying to dance to “whip my hair”.
    A lot of people thought it was hilarious, but some a**hole didn’t like it, my IP is banned and I can’t get back on whatsoever

  • I have not breached any rule, I was dressed and just wrote a decently with other people. Looks like I am now permanently disabled and have no idea why. I disagree with the redirect!

  • awwwww today i got blocked for no reason (fully clothed) and it was my first time n chatroullette -.- is there any way i can get back to it?? besides i saw many pervs and still didnt report them…
    unfairrrr!!!

  • Just got blockade because I went from my computer in 2 minutes …
    Has been blocked in two hours now…

  • I was talking to a boy named andrew who would play guitar, we were having a great conversation when it booted me off!

  • i was blocked, it was so dumb. I was talking to a boy named andrew who played guitar :/ i made a skype for him and didn’t even get to give him my url shit.

  • i got banned and my banns r for like full days! maybe cuz im always high on ther. ( my eyes ) but im wearin cloths… i live in jamaica n its like not legal here but overseen as a drug. what may seem inapropriate ther in usa isnt here

  • 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…

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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?

  • i was sifting through chatroulette with a sign that says “NO WEINERS!!” and i got blocked yeah thats right i made some friends and made some enemies but i was blocked for a sign

  • For grins, I started tallying the non-penis vs penis-related chats. Out of 50, 23 showed guy’s dicks. I would have stayed on but I was blocked. (normal street clothing).

  • 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

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

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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)

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

  • 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?

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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…

  • 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?

  • 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

  • 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
