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

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.

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.

New design for the blog section pages

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

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.

Moving the orange share bar on some pages today

So after our massive web site update, some users chimed in on the suggestions page with a few issues. I was glad to get the feedback, although surprised to hear that some were having issues with our new orange / yellow sharing bar that was added to the bottom of the pages. Some were having trouble with it covering up parts of the chat rooms window, so I asked for some extra info about screen size, resolution, browser type etc.

Site redesign and updates today

Some will notice some pretty big changes throughout most of the site today, and many will either get the older cached version displayed, or just not notice much of a difference. We are finally rolling out a bunch of responsive design changes throughout most of the site today. If you do not like some of the changes, realize that everything is not finished, it’s still a work in progress!

There have been a ton of changes throughout the site, this is a total re-work from the ground up.

New how to score in the chat rooms video

Finally releasing the first version of our “how to score more in the chat rooms” video. how-to-sex-chat-video This is a project that was started a long time ago, and we finally hunkered down to get some of our ideas put into video form. Please check out the new video that is posted on the How to score in the sex chat rooms page. We’d love to hear feedback from everyone about what we could do to make a second and third video in this series. Comment, ideas, suggestions, all always welcome!

Chat rooms down for some time this weekend

Our chat rooms were down for more than 24 hours over the weekend, this is the longest down time that I remember. Good things came from this bit of down time, but we were certainly not happen about the unplanned issues! I posted lots of updates on the connection issues page, providing any information that I was able to get, so hopefully many people jumped over to the connection issues page to see what was going on.
