Chatroulette adult sites
Meanwhile, the site's founder, a Russian teenager named Andrey Ternovskiy, continues to say that he's out to create a "perfect video world" where people can talk across national borders and beyond social cliques and demographics. "With the help of a few good developers we've started collecting information, such as IP addresses, logs and screen captures of offenders who actually break US/UN laws by broadcasting innapropriate [sic] content in a specific situations," he writes.
The major hitch in that utopian vision: the nakedness, which led some to turn away from the site. "I hope that with help of a Criminal law we can finally get the problem out of our shoulders and get existing organizations which usually solve these kind of problems to help us." He also posted a warning on Chatroulette's notoriously spare homepage: "Warning: Broadcasting inappropriate content to minors is a violation of both US and UN law.
The effect is reminiscent of other video chat services, like Skype or GTalk, which place a smaller window of the user’s video in view rather than alongside their partner’s video feed.
Also changed is a big button underneath the video screen, which is no longer labeled “Next” but clearly meant for moving on to the next partner.
Some of the features appeared to be down for maintenance on Monday, but the blog Tech Crunch says the adult channels have proved to be the most popular.
Ternovskiy also writes that the site has tried to use image-recognition technology and other methods of automated analysis to flag naked offenders. N., Chatroulette will be able to flourish again as it did "before it was discovered by a strange people, who started to abuse the true freedom and democratic nature of the service," he writes. "I hope that someday our service will become a beautiful video world, an internet country with no borders and locations," he writes.
Chatroulette has been experimenting with different takes on its original concept in recent months.The site launched themed channels and local offerings in July, and founder Andrey Ternowsky told us around the same time that he wanted to ditch text chats altogether and instead focus on telepresence.The Localroulette and Channelroulette pages have disappeared, turning up 404s in their place.Now that the novelty of the service has worn off—or, perhaps, now that not-gay men have grown tired of looking at pictures of tumescent tube steak [note: I haven’t]—Chatroulette, which never really had any sort of business plan or compelling reason to exist in the first place, is capitalizing on all of these weenies.According to a story in Fast Company, the founder of the company, a Russian twink named Andrey Ternovskiy, is now pulling these squirrel snaps and selling them to adult interest sites.
