Black or Gold user & room icons

Would you like to have a unique black or gold icon for your room or user nickname?  The black and gold special icons are reserved for the top 5 most gifted rooms and users in every zone.  The top gifted rooms in every zone also appear at the top of the video chat room list.  Black and gold icons show up in user instant messages, room lists, and contact lists.  Please note you must be using one of the newer clients to view the new icons.

To get a black or gold user/room icon collect as many virtual gift points as possible.  There can be only one user and room with a black icon per zone!

Do you have ideas for other colored user icons or nicknames?  Please let us know.

Camfrog Client 6.1.138 (Windows) Released!

Camfrog Client 6.1.138 is now available for download.

This new Windows client version has many bug fixes, including a bug where the user directory icon did not open our user directory for some users.  Some users also reported a problem where receiving an IM could cause them to crash and this update seems to solve that problem.

Download Camfrog 6.1.138 (Windows)

Update: IM HISTORY – Some users think their IM history was deleted with the new Windows client release but they are mistaken.  In the IM History window use the pull-down menu at the bottom left and choose “show last month” or another option to see older IM history.  Please note that showing all IM history may slow down your client and make it start and exit slower.

Video Changes on Camfrog

Dear Camfrog Members,

Our goal has always been to provide a quality video chat platform that is easy to use and safe for all our visitors.   We want Camfrog to be the place that people go to discuss their interests, meet new people and connect with old friends.

For Camfrog to be a well-lit and safe place for users of all ages, we are required to limit video streams in the 18+ category for unpaid members.   By requiring credit card verification, we are taking an important step in ensuring that mature content is viewed only by those 18 and older.

Current Camfrog Pro subscribers will not be affected and will continue to get unlimited video in all categories.  Unpaid users will need to upgrade to Camfrog Pro to see webcam video in the 18+ category.

Please Note: This does not impact the General, Deaf and Camfrog categories – unpaid users will still have access to unlimited viewing of 1 free video window.
