Rules / Etiquette Update 1-30-2015

Updated the rules page, the kicked or banned page, and the content guidelines page.

Synopsis:

added - If you send private messages to people that include edge play / taboo terms and they did not ask for those types of message, you may be permanently banned from the system.

examples were updated, including :
Abusive, forced sex, humiliation or rape like names or discussions are not allowed in the main rooms such as the lobby, and is only allowed in the forced sex fantasy room, a user created room, or perhaps the BDSM room, if others there at the time do not find offense to the discussion.

Rules and disallowed content updates

We have updated our rules page, the kicked or banned from the chat rooms page, and added a content guidelines page.

I invite everyone to re-read the rules, and welcome any feedback. The new content guidelines page will not affect most of our users, however those who like to share pics and videos should read up on the info provided there for sure. The kicked and ban page has been updated a bit to help those who find themselves kicked to the time out info as well.

What is new? Well read the fucking rules page and find out! ;) LOL

Sex Chat Space is Down – but not out, for long

After two weeks of debating the whole "shutdown the new chat" - I worked out a deal to keep the NC up and running. As I started to pack up the files to move to a new web server, weird problems started to happen. I spent about 12 hours trying to fix things, and then brought in another server tech on the issue. This led to other issues, and other server techs coming in to try to fix the weird problems we started having with the site. After tons of time spent, Sex Chat Space is down. Don't worry - it's not out!

farewell to the new chat, long live the newer chat

We will be shutting down the "new chat" aka the "peeps cams chat" in a few days. I have had info about this posted in the new chat system for days now. This will free up some resources to work on the new features of the newer "mv chat system" which also has webcam options, mic audio (voice chat), and c2c (cam 2 cam) abilities. There are some other benefits to the mv option that the "old new chat" does not offer. I know that there are those who at this time do not like the mv system, and prefer the other.

pornstars video for net neutrality

A new video with some naked and blurred (like they are buffering) pornstars trying to explain net neutrality is in the news. They are naked, but it's censored so they can be featured on mainstream / non-porn sites like funny or die, and have made it to big tech portals like gizmodo and even cnbc news ( Net neutrality explained by...porn stars at CNBC News Site ). I think it's great that people are using sex and popular porn girls to get the word out about something people need to pay attention to and contact their representatives to chime in on the issue.

The sc logo font identity crisis!

Okay, well, it's not really a crisis, even though it's been driving me crazy for quite some time!

sex-chat-sexchat-old-logo-cantenoWhen we first designed the old scsc web browsers were limited to a dozen or so "web safe fonts", in order to make a web site logo that was not as plain as a 1950's typewriter you had to use a graphics program and add the logo as an image file to the site. At one time we settled on the canteno font for our logo design, made it a very dark blue to it would not overly stand out, and life was good for the scsc "branding". Years later lots of things for the web are changing.

Sc’s tumblr blog terminated – temporary account deletion?

tumblr-account-terminated

I finally took some time to get to our tumblr blog and update with some sexy sayings and quotes, but when I clicked over to our add some stuff I was greeted with this notice saying account terminated.

I found this quite strange. Our tumblr blog was set up as a way to gather together sexy quotes and few sexy, but not nude or hardcore pics. A way to let users of scsc who also use tumblr to connect with us and follow our posts there. We also enjoy promoting the service as I think it is was of the easiest and fastest ways for the average person to setup a blog and start posting pics, videos, words, etc. Quickly, and very easily.

New design for the blog section pages

scsc blog redesign start

Working on a new design for the blog section here. This is currently a longer test of some new code than I expected. Not sure we will stick with this format and tweak it some more (the fonts are not yet displaying as I had hoped) or just revert back to the old style and do some other tests in the future. For now this design is a bit more responsive / mobile friendly. Have not tested with Apple or IOS devices yet. If someone wants to buy me the latest iPhone for testing...

Firefox Update 32 fixes broken chat rooms from v31

firefox-version-in-help-about

We posted in July 2014 about issues with the updated (at the time, V 31) firefox breaking the ability to use the OC (origianl / old chat) rooms. This was brought to our attention by users who mentioned the issue on the chat connections problems / solutions page. Thankfully the good folks at mozilla looked into possible causes for this situation, and members of scsc clicked over the mozilla forums and marked it as an issue that affected them. I think there was enough discussion and "votes" as an important issue that it got resolved in the latest firefox update, currently V 32.

Firefox update v31 seems to break the chat rooms

We are looking into an issue where it seems that the latest version of firefox, version 31 is causing a conflict with flash that is not allowing people to login and connect with the OC chat rooms. I have run through several of the troubleshooting things over at Mozilla; uninstalling all browser plugins, restarting, etc. At this time we are not sure what is causing the problem, but we are trying to figure it out!
*edit Sept 2014 - A newer version of firefox is available that fixes the issue this post was about - Firefox Update 32 fixes broken chat rooms from v31 *
If you are getting just a blue box, or white box, and the screen name / login box never shows, check your browser's "help" tab and click about. If it is firefox version 31 - that may be the issue. I can confirm from tests about an hour ago that everything was fine with firefox version 30.
