Oh hi. 4300 of you have chat names that belong to you. 

Please, please, stay anonymous here. We provide the privacy, and the opportunity to be anonymous.
It is your responsibility to safeguard your anonymity.
That means (ladies), when the fellas ask you what your name is, where you live, what your skype
name is, and so on 

you. ignore. them.

this is not a dating site

okay?

have your fun, and keep moving on...

Oh hi. 2400 of you have chat names that belong to you. 
This, despite the fact that google now completely ignores the site.
Just wanted to put up a quick note to let you know that this site does NOT use cloudflare, and its 
recent security problems do not affect us.
Have fun.

Uploads are fixed. You can now upload mp4 videos to the theatres. An image will be generated from the vid, and it will be immediately posted... enjoy!

I was going to add this to the faq, but it belongs here.
Q. What the fuck? Why did you change the text chat? Why do I have to log in with an email address?
A. We had to do it.
This is still the most secure, unpolluted, and anonymous site of its kind.
I know it seems like a big deal, but read on.
I have run this site for years.
For a long time it made no money.
For a long time, everyone was cool.
Lately, that changed.
A particular user abused the open naming system we have had here for years.
Specifically, by using other's names as shills to chat with himself.
This was done to gradually build and gain trust with other users, which was then abused elsewhere.
Sadly, with no ability to control user name distribution we had no way to prevent name stealing, or shill chatting.
We tried blocking Puffin, we tried rate limiting, we pointed out that trolls are never on cam. Nothing worked.
Well guess what. It's my fucking site, and I will never allow one user to take over what I have built and use it to fuck over others.
So we built a login system.
The video system is totally unchanged. The chat code is unchanged, except that there is no access unless you login.
I have no interest in moderating what happens here, but I will never let this site become a personal abuse system for sociopaths.
This is for everyone's good.
We are not moderating the chat, or the video. We are not going to email you, unless you request help, in which case we are here.
The ONLY restriction we have introduced is on names.
You and only you, can have your name.

All text chat upgrades are done. 
The email to name logon system is in effect for every main room and all user-created rooms. 
For the vast majority of you, who have exercised common courtesy and used the same 
chatroom name over the months and years, nothing will change. Requesting a unique email address
in exchange for a protected user name is reasonable. 
This additional security of assuring that your name is yours will keep things cool here.
The chat is not being monitored or moderated. At all. We are simple enforcing a minimum standard
for participation that allows us to keep things reliably pleasant here.
This means that only legitimate omgcafe users can view and participate, and therefore influence, 
the text chat. If putting in an email is too much to ask in exchange for that, then
I guess you can just watch...
A password management system so you can handle your own password resets is coming.

Dec 10, 2016
Chat log is fixed in the main rooms.
User created rooms and the women and adult rooms now use a new login system for chat.
There is no rate limiting on these new chats, so the speed is back.
You will need to provide an email, and create a user and password. 
You use this email address only to log in, and then get your user name displayed.
But, if you need your password reset or want to verify your name, 
or want notifications about things, put one in that works.
Description is for later, if we show account stuff someday. 
Once this tests out okay we'll roll it out for the rest of the main rooms.
Enjoy the fun.

Chat log is broken, will see about fixing it if I have time.

Ad network is back. This is good for the site.
Does anyone use reddit?
We started one but it went nowhere. Just wondering.

Nov 20, 2016
The chat is back on. 
It will be taken down if users allow trolls to take over again.
Please remember to keep this site about sex only. It's not for dating, gossip or politics.
Thank you.

Added a new partner, ready2burst.com, check out their hot content from the links on the pissing page.
Exciting news for ipad and iphone users. Puffin browser now lets you cam from 
your mobile or tablet! Details in your app store for your device.

Just looking at the stats, and 13% of new visitors to the site are women, and they actually
have a longer time on the site than new men. So, women are looking for fun, and are sometimes
finding it here. We are also seeing more Puffin users on iphones and that's great.

The Types of Users. Additional suggestions for categories welcome...
Cammer: Shows on cam, does not type in the chat.
Cheerleader: Opposite of the Cammer. Only types in the chat, comments on what they see.
Couple: Usually a hetero exhibitionist pair.
Double Streamer: Shows here and on some other site. Inattentive.
E-Whore: Guy showing videos to either excite a room or be annoying.
Leech: Does not chat or cam. Voyeur.
Nymph: Woman that likes to show. Exhibitionist.
Nudist: Guys that just hang out nude. Exhibitionist.
Tranny: Guy in women's clothes. May or may not be post-op.
Troll: Never on cam. Has anger issues. Tries to take down rooms. Doesn't like us, but keeps coming back.
Visitor: Confused, new. Asks the same questions over and over.
Whiner: Complains about the site, keeps coming back, but not a troll.

Page you are reporting is now sent in the contact form, which should help with underage people.

A couple of regulars have emailed me about how child porn is becoming more of 
a problem, not less. I want to apologize to you regulars. I'm personally
disturbed and disappointed that this has been happening. The site is for 
anonymous, easy free sex between adults, end of story. It's not for illegal
activity.
Effective immediately, any new public room cannot contain words connoting 
or promoting underage content. 
If this is not effective, I will simply disable all listed room creation.
Be cool. Have fun. It's an honor to be able to provide this environment.
Let's respect it and keep it free, fun, and cool.

Still holding at 13% female, for new visitors. People are gender obsessed aren't they? 
Feb 22, 2016
With anonymity, there will always be a certain amount of abuse. I have had to ban entire IP
blocks in England to keep a certain disturbed individual out of the text chat.
Please notify admin if they get in again. Many trolls are quite determined, but I would
point out that in EVERY case they are only in the text chat, and NEVER in the video chat.
A good self-policy is to be wary of anyone talking a lot, and not showing.
Have fun, be cool.

Going to start updating this more. Will get you some more stats about m/f ratios.
People seem to be labelling their cams more. 

So, about 15% of new users are women. New people (first timers) stay about 5 minutes on average,
while returning users stay almost 12 minutes (on average).

In any week there are about 10,000 active users of the site (from analytics, we have no logging
or any way to count this ourselves).

Also, haven't had many questions come in, so if you have many, send them to 

admin@omgcafe.com

and I'll try to answer many questions you have.

Have fun.

Question from last week, why is the same image repeated in the theatres section?
This is what we use if we cannot get a snapshot of the live stream. 
You need to be on cam for at least 3 minutes if you want your pic on the front
page of the website.
There was a bad case of the trolls last week, but they seem to have lost interest.
I know it is hard to keep it in mind, but the two separated communication systems
should be able to be separated in your minds. 
The text, or the video, can sometimes be where you focus. It's very difficult
to troll video, and relatively simple to troll text.

Updated the broadcast page so there are links to Puffin for first-timers on tablets and phones.
Also, the broadcaster page now shows YOU how many viewers YOU have in real time, 
just like the group rooms... (why did that take so long??).
Have fun...

Sorry about the hardware failure, we had to flip to an old version on a European server.
This version did not have software to run the chat, just the video.
Anyway, things are back to normal.
