I recently have been in search for new chat software for my chat site. In doing so I started testing various software, and came across minnit.chat. Then I noticed the site jabber reviews on it, and came across another chatmaster who had already ran the software. His review on the software checked out to be true, so then I decided to check out his site. So this is what I have discovered, and to dis-associate any of the many negative reviews you see here, I will explain my overall experience.
I can tell you that I don't know where the idea of a scam comes into mind, because from what I gather it is completely free to use, and all I see as far as purchase options is a voluntary contribute button. That doesn't seem to bad because the price ranges are from $5 to $20 dollars, and is not a condition to even use the services.
I also seen reviews regarding the fact that the site is unsafe. Compared to the likes of other chat sites, and even my own, that couldn't be further from the truth. I first went in with a guest alias. I didn't want their administration treating me any differently than a regular chatter. I not only felt safe but I actually had a really fun time chatting with their regs.
Other rumors claim that their chatmaster could be or is a "fake". Well this is also not true becuase, recently as stated I found myself in search for new chat software, and I ended up shortly thereafter contacting their webmaster via video call. If Lions is 31 as you claim him to be, then hes the youngest looking 31 year old I have ever seen.
This to me, seems like pure competition from other chat sites, trolls, bullies, how ever you want to spin it. Because some of you have mentioned comingn from chat-avenue.com and then thats when I put on my questioning face. Your tactics to defame this site....I am talking to those coming from chat-avenue are very hypocritical don't you think? Mean the constant grooming that takes place in your chat site, should leave you speechless when it comes to any other chat site. chat-avenue.com is a breeding ground for illegal online activity.
The rules listed at cronychat are detailed, to cover user safety, with detailed instruction tools for moderators and staff, and clearly defines that the site is not used for dating, and it states that crimes such as grooming are immediately reported to authorites.
After speaking with Lions he informed me over the last year 8 arrests have been made on charges ranging from grooming, to even intent to commit. Ill stop at that.
The staff at cronychat were very nice, and didn't come off as German Nazi Prison Guards. I felt very safe using the site, and they have all the features that a chat site should have.
*Stunning youtube displays via a link
*A very nice forum
*A very nice blog
*User membership area
For cronychat being a small time operation they have all the features the big sites do, and they run their chat site better.
For those of you that are reading this, before you pass judgment stop on in and meet the people at cronychat, then go over to chat-avenue.com and log into kids chat or girls chat and then you can see where most of these reviews are coming from. Then ask yourself if these other reviews are even plausible. Mean would you trust a burgler with your 60 inch flat screen? Then why would you trust anyone coming out of chat-avenue with a honest review on a chat site?
Take it from my there is nothing wrong with cronychat, as a matter of fact I really enjoyed myself.
