I don't understand the previous review that complained about branding. I'm currently using a trial version of the community option in which I have managed to customise every aspect of the chat room including removing any minnit branding by using CSS to hide these.
I've used a lot of chat software starting with IRC web clients to Parachat(now defunct), mibbit and RumbleTalk and installed the once popular eshare expressions java server at work and nothing comes close to the level of customization mibbit gives website admins not to mention how efficient, robust and blazingly fast it is.
This company and it's prodcut is nothing but a scam. This is a chat room meant to stay on the minnit.chat website this is NOT for websites or chat sites.
This company must be fairly new because, they fail to realize that chat sites, especially teen chat sites have laws to follow. Both federal and international regulations. Some of those laws require that the owner submit user data to certain agencies when a crime has taken place.
Question for minnit.chat is
How do you expect, your website customers to be able to uphold their legal obligations, other than in a previous review someone said that he would have to subpoiena you each and every time. That is going to cost a fortune in court costs and attorney fees. Why in the world would I pay you
360 dollars USD per year for a chat software that will only cost me more money, every time I have to drag your butts to court to fulfill the obligations on my end.
And are you aware that even small chat sites for teens will make at least one cyber tips report a week....come on people it is the internet!
Declan you are 100% correct in your review. Chat sites simply can't use this product. It would get us all shut down. They have no idea what they are doing and any senior webmaster/chatmaster will figure it out. Hopefully before paying these schisters.
I also agree with him, in that wait wait hold the phone.....you do have an abnormal amount of branding on your software. Yet the only promotional offering you have must be the minnit.chat domain? Now come on guys your biggest customers will be chat sites, and chat sites want to be able to advertise their chat sites...not their chat rooms. Your customers which will be chat sites, would most likely give you a outstanding recommendation, but why if your not giving them a reach around?
No no no SAY NO TO MINNIT.CHAT!
Declan I would like to maybe get into contact with you Me and my friend own a chat site, and you own a chat site and we clearly see eye to eye here. Maybe we could exchange some information. And I might add your chat site is beautiful I absolutely loved checking it out.
I also agree with Declan that this is only a scam by minnit.chat to steal your site traffic if all they are doing is branding the product....charging you for it...and forcing the registrations to go through the minnit.chat servers. Then it intentionally leads your users away from your site to their site. It is proceliting and that is ethically and morally wrong and not very professional.
This company wont just cost you the amount of the software they will cost you thousands and double digit thousands in revenue due to the traffic you will lose, because of their scam tastic ways.
Declan bravo love your review bro! and thanks for the heads up. I saw that and then did some research talked to a few friends and you know what your 100% right about everything you said.
Jack idk who you are but you sir have no clue about the laws regarding chat sites. And if you did, then you would know that you are facing shut down if coppa comes in asks or subpoenas you for a users data and you say "oh i don't have it"? yeah your done!
Maybe you all at minnit.chat should listen to the ones who know the law, and know what chat sites need, instead of trying to wing it. This makes 2 chatmasters you have peed off so far. Im sure there will be more.
I made a chat and embedded it on my website, the chat is really easy to use and allows me to customise pretty much everything I want.
Later on I purchased a plan and it was really easy to customise the chat using CSS, upload custom emoji's and use any of the other premium features the plan comes with.
There were a few things I wasn't sure how to do with CSS, and I contacted support and they helped write the CSS rules for me. The support is great and they reply really quickly.
I would highly recommend using this over other chats services which cost a lot more if you want a lot of users, and have less features.
