Pro Subscriptions

January 22, 2017 in Announcements, Blog

Hey Funchatters,

After a lot of thought we have come to the decision that FCC will become a paid site within the near future (and we mean as soon as next month).

This was a hard decision to make as we know we may lose some of our members, but this needs to be done for several reasons.

One of the main reasons is to bring money into the site to keep it up and running and to allow us to continually upgrade the software that is used.

We’ve got some great new features planned and we’d like to continue working on them and improving the site for you.

It is also now costing over £300 per month to run the site and this comes out of our own pockets we’re hoping that pro subscriptions will go a way to help with this monthly cost.

Donations have been a great help, and we’ll still have this as an available feature, but they didn’t raise enough to help as much as we thought they might.

The options for membership will be Pro or Non-Pro.

Pro Membership:
£2.99 for 1 month
£14.99 for 6 months
£29.99 for the year
Unlimited cams
Private messaging
Make new rooms
Advert Free
Pro only forums
Access to pro only rooms

Non-Pro:
Limit of 3 cams
Unable to private message or make a new room
No access to pro forums
Adverts

New to the site, no problem you can check out the perks of a pro membership by using funtokens. 200 tokens will get you 24 hours Pro membership. Funtokens are available to purchase from the shop and can be gifted to other users.

Current server owners and their reds, will receive a free pro membership upto a limit of 3 reds per server.

We really hope you understand that this decision was really hard for us to make and can accept the changes that are coming to the site. We hope to see you in chat and together we will continue to make FCC the place to be!

Thanks Satch & Fairy.

Recent Downtime

November 15, 2016 in Announcements, Blog, News

Hi Guys,

This morning you may have been affected by an outage which caused connection issues to the chat servers for a few hours.

First of all I’m sorry for this, but it was unfortunately outside of my control.

The company which hosts the servers which our chat servers are on had some major power issues in their UK data centre which brought all their servers & network down.

They managed to resolve it fairly quickly (within 2-3 hours) but I know it’s a major pain not being able to get into chat.

I was notified immediately by our site monitoring solution and started following the issues on their website.

If it had taken much longer to get access to our servers I was willing to purchase temporary servers elsewhere and spend time restoring your chat servers onto them. Fortunately this was not needed as it is an extra expense.

I’m working on some redundancy plans so this shouldn’t have this much effect and downtime in the future.

Once again, apologies for the downtime and hope to see you all in chat soon.

Donations

January 3, 2016 in Announcements, Blog

Can you help?

You may have noticed by now the new page that appears when you enter the chatrooms. This donation page is just a gentle reminder that if you’re able, it would be great if you could offer a donation (however small).

Many thanks to those that have donated so far!

Donations help keep the site running and show us that you love the place. The running costs each month are again climbing as we upgrade servers and services.

We’re working on some amazing new features for 2016 and without you none of this would happen, so please donate if you can. Even just $3 can make all the difference!

You can donate by visiting the donate page at the top of the website, or by using paypal to our email address: [email protected]

If you have any suggestions or could help in other ways, please leave a comment or email us at [email protected]

Many thanks,

The Funchatcam Team

As some of you may know, chatpoints have been running for a while now. The longer you are in chat the more chatpoints you earn. Today we have been working on a page that shows the top 10 users with the most chatpoints.

We’re working on ways to reward our regular chatters so watch this space for some great prizes and gifts. If you have any ideas, please let us know!

You can see the current chatpoints page here: http://www.funchatcam.com/chatpoints

If you want to see your individual chatpoints they are also on your profile page.

Anyone who had existing chatpoints have had them reset to zero to make it fair for all users.

Get earning those chatpoints!
