We’re not going anywhere!

August 20, 2018 in Announcements, Blog, News

FCC is not going anywhere! We’re close to completing some awesome updates for the site.

It’s been a long time in the making but we’re going to be launching our new video chat platform which
will solve all the issues that users have experienced with the old software that we have been using
since FCC launched in 2009.

You will be able to chat, view webcams & stream music in full HD on your computer, laptop, tablet & other mobile devices.

We’re also building a load of new bots for you guys to play. With new games & prizes to be won we hope it’s going to
be a great new experience for all users to enjoy.

We will be recruiting a brand new site management team. If you would like to be involved to make FCC great again send us a message
or email [email protected]

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

Management Team Elections

August 10, 2014 in Announcements, News

It’s time for YOU to get involved.

Funchatcam needs a management team to help support the core site team & owners.

We would like each server to put forward one person to be on this team.

The team will have monthly meetings (more regular if needed) with the site core team & owners:

Organise events, publicise the site, vote in new ideas, discuss new features and much more.

Could you help? I will be talking to all the server owners in the next few days asking for their feedback and to nominate a person to be on the team.

If you have any questions please sign in and use the comments below!

Good luck!
