This section of the web site is our social network / profiles area. Here you can browse other people’s profiles, pictures, and other activity that they have not set as private, or friends only. If you register in this section of the site (free) – then you can create your own profile, upload pictures, send private messages (kind of like facebook mail), join the various groups, and more.
There are many features of this section, and we are working to develop more in the future. The peeps section was originally launched in 2010 to give users an option for uploading an avatar to use in our old chat rooms. Over time more and more users were looking for ways to keep in touch with friends they made in the chats, and the software we were using to allow private picture uploads and photo cropping was expanded to include the profiles and messaging features. We have now added a new cams / voice chat room system to this section of the site as well.
We will continue to expand this section of the web site, and modify the way certain things work, and how things are displayed, so don’t be surprised when things change and update around here! We always listen to everyone’s feedback and suggestions, so feel free to make those known.
