Promotions, Admins, and More! What’s New in Rooms
Introducing Promoted Rooms! Starting a new room, holding an event, or just want to get your room to the top of the list? Starting today, you can use Camfrog Coins to Promote any room to the top!
How does it work? There are 6 available Promoted room slots. When you promote a room, that room will appear in the #1 slot. When someone else promotes another room, your room will be bumped down to the #2 slot, then #3… When your Promoted room is in the #6 slot, and someone promotes another room, your room will be bumped out of the Promoted list. Note: Promoting Rooms is available in the latest version of Camfrog for Windows, and on https://videochat.camfrog.com – promotion support coming to mobile apps shortly.
How long do rooms appear in the Promoted list? There is no set time. Promotions can last for a day, a week, or even just a few moments. It depends on if other members promote other rooms and bump your room off the list.
How much does it cost to Promote a room? At launch, Promoting a room is a flat fee of 1,000 Camfrog Coins. This price may change in the future, or fluctuate based on factors including time of day, amount of members online, velocity at which rooms are being promoted, etc…
An Update on Room Roles
Camfrog Rooms have multiple user levels with different access authorizations.
1: Members. Members can join the room and chat with friends!
2: Friends. Friends of the room are room members that are given a special standout status. This is a great status to give to your room’s regulars. These can signified trusted members. Friends are able to send private messages within the room using the /msg command.
Friends are signified with a blue smiley face next to their nickname in the room users list.
3: Moderators. Moderators are members who are given special abilities to kick, punish, or ban problematic members from the room.
Moderators are signified with a Green “M” icon in the room.
4: Admins. Admins are members who have extra permissions above Moderators. Admins can designate members as Friends or Moderators in the room, as well as manage some select room settings. Only the Room Owner can add members as Admins.
Admins are signified with a Red “A” icon in the room. In older versions of Camfrog clients, these may be signified with a green “M” badge
5: Owner. This is the owner of the room. A Camfrog room can only have one account owner. The Owner account has full access to all account settings and permissions. The room owner is signified with a Gold House icon next to their nick.
