User Room 'Temple'
Here at OFC chat, we believe in free! That's why all the chat rooms and features are accessible to everyone regardless of registration status. Although registered members can access more features, we don't purposely restrict guests by choice, there are just some limitations for engaging with others without an account, so let's dig deeper into account creation and as to whether or not it's worth it.
Firstly, the only information collected to create an account is an email address. Most users are skeptical about creating an account on websites of this nature because they're sensitive about their personal data. This is not like Facebook or any other popular social media service, we don't need your name or any other personal information, just a throw away email address is the difference to full access.
Creating a free account also protects you from the aggressive scam and spam AI protections within the chat software. We know not 100% of guests are scammers and spammers, but we know 100% of spammers and scammers are guests. Registering bypasses you from being subject to the automated moderation techniques that block guests from interacting with the community, it has been known that legitimate users sometimes get caught up by employing similar behavior to spam bots.
So you've taken the plunge and decided to create an account, great! Firstly you'll not notice all the backed exemptions you've now bypassed being a registered user. You have an account on the forums that allows you to send messages to other users, allowing you to connect to people who are currently offline and can reply to your message later. You can post in the forums, comment on other peoples pictures uploaded to the website and more. There are also help forums for technical issues with the chat rooms or site which can be helpful!
