New Chat Room Questions

What's up with the new chat room?

Hey guys, I've been pretty busy on the back end of things and while I know you don't hear from me too often we have something exciting to share! The new chat room is ALMOST ready for prime time! It's been available to tinker with in Beta so to address some of the issues that users have brought up.

1. Why is the chat room being redone? The old one worked find (Bah humbug)The MAIN reason we needed to re-do the chat room, is that the current software is based on Adobe Flash, and fewer and fewer browsers are supporting this software.Plain and simple, re-doing the chat in HTML/JS allows more of our users to access the chat room.Reason #2. The software we've been using all these years is not our own, so we have not had the ability to add new features that have been requested. This has been very frustrating as users have requested very valid usable features.

2. I don't like the way it looks, it's annoying, I'm leaving etcWe understand that there is always a learning curve when new features are launched. There is nothing I can do to assist users who dislike the new chat, just because it is new and different.That said, we actively encourage feedback! If you have a specific feature that's not working, or the site looks horrible on your device, we want to know so we can fix it!

3. Can you leave the old chat room up?No, this isn't an option, paying for multiple servers and splitting the list of people in each room would make the chat room less enjoyable. With social media, it's not fun if there's nobody to be social with.

4. Where is private IM/Video chat?Private messaging is still available, and has a newer layout, to allow for easier management of your IM windows. Private video chat is on the roadmap, but not in this project. We arelooking to build a site-wide PM system, that will have that functionality built in.

5. Why are the # of camera lowered, and ads in the chat room.To put it simply, the chat room is really a loss for us, It is not cheap to provide the servers/bandwidth for chat and stream audio/video. I've spent 100s of hours developing this system, and it would be nice to see some sort of return. This isn't a large corporation, this is my sole income source, so being re-imbursed for my time is important. I hate ads as well, but our pricing plans are very affordable and we offer way more free services than any other site I've seen.

6. What are the new features?Alright! A Fun question!a. Ability to Add/Upload images and post them to chat, or copy paste to IMsb. Sort by distance/find users that are closest to you.c. An entire settings menu with themes and options to customize your chat experience the way you want itd. More control over who can talk to you, You can block annoying users, Ignore PMs from certain users or disable the PM system completely.e. Lots of new emojis!f. Settings and PMs that are saved, even if you leave the room and come backg. Higher quality/resolution webcam feeds.h. New moderator features to make the chat room more enjoyable and keep the trolls at bayi. A vote-ban/flagging system for kicking out spammers and abusive users EVEN IF NO MODERATOR IS PRESENT!

7. What features can we expect down the line?a. Integrated friends list, see which of your friends are in the chat room.b. More themes (and user submitted themes)c. Integration into the site-wide PM system we have planned.d. More options to share media, videos, links, animated gifs.

8. When is it going live?Well, I'm still testing and fixing it. It should be before December 1st, but as soon as it's working 100%, I'm shutting down the old chat room.I know that this will cause grief and be a painful process for some, but this new chat will allow many users who couldn't access it now be able to. That means that the room will be busier and a better social experience for all. While we may lose a few, this NEEDS to happen and in the end we're providing a BETTER chat with more features. Also keep in mind that if you have a fun feature that will make it even more enjoyable you can now suggest it, and if we agree we can add it. How awesome is that!!As always we thank you for making this site amazing, and we know that in the end you will love the new chat.

Stay nude!

  • would be nice if you could get the MODs under control and ALL on the same page. MODs ban people for different reasons that they seem to make up on their own. I have read the chat room rules and many people get banned for things that are NOT in the posted rules. I wish you would please go for quality instead of quantity of members. I go to resorts and never meet anyone that comes to the TN site because it has such a very bad reputation. The site is filled with Scammers and Fakes.
    • Watch out for scammers looking for money
      • A friend, Merseymale, had been kicked out the room for no reason. When he asked what happened the MOD simply answered "Drop it and move on" When Merseymale asked for an explanation or done in mistake for an apploglogy the MOD answered "as the owner of the site has said, NO ONE has to stay" Merseymale has been banned from the chat for NOT violating the rules, how is this possible and what can be done ? I have screenshots as proof and is this how paying members get treated ?
        • I can understand about Flash as it is a pain. But I am fed up with the vast number of "certified" accounts with NO photo, and either no data or as a hidden profile. Given this is a site for naturists to freely chat and contact, why are these people allowed tis anonymity? Another bugbear is the way vindictive members can create a blog and name any user account, without the user being informed. And under Freedom of Information, how can I download ALL of my data that your hold?
          • I would love to be able to enlarge the cams screens a bit bigger than the current approx. 6cm square. When I first joined over 5 years ago I seemed to remember them being much more watchable.
            • Hello everyone, What are the steps to join this chat group? I really appreciate a feedback Thanks
              • A friend of mine was banned / kicked off T N... he has no idea why or what he might have done... no explanation or chance to rebuttal... how can he find out why... or how can any of us keep from being kicked off site and out the group??
                • You have one of the best chat sites I know of! Keep up the awesome work!
                  • Chat me anytime????????
