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]

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.

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!
