“Im so happy I found this site”

Written on: 09/01/2018 by BrooklynnBarr409 (1 review written)

I have to say from the start it's been a wonderful relief to find this site. It is the sort of chat site I have been looking for. All other sites I have attended you get trolls and perverts spoiling your time. Vari has none of those. Not once have I been approached by someone in a lewd way. I have never been asked for pictures or any of that sort of thing. It's not always busy but when it is it is a lot of fun. There are times its hard to keep up with the banter in the room. The… Read Full Review

“Admin & Mod overkill and no chatters.”

Written on: 04/11/2017 by 295Hawkins (1 review written)

I joined this site originally when it was new in late 2016 and left after a couple of weeks because it was dead now almost a year on I decided to give it another shot and I really don't know why I bothered it's still dead. My number one criticism is that there are far far too many staff and hardly any real chatters. The Forums - These have 2 dedicated forum admins and a forum mod plus 3 or 4? site admins but most sections have not been posted in for months, some since 2016! Those sections… Read Full Review

This person seems to have a grudge because there are claims that are not true.
1. There is only 1 forum admin and no forum mod
2. There are many more chatters in my experience than there are mods or admins
3. There moderation is not strict at all . I in my time have not seen a mod or admin jump on anyone. Mainly because all the chatters are decent people who don't need to be. The Admins and mods if anything join in on the fun banter. Its a lot of fun.

There is some miss information on this review.

This is our admin and moderation structure.

There is one forums admin only not 2.

There are the site admins one who covers the North American time one who covers the UK/Euro time zones and one who covers the Australasian time zone. It would be crazy for one person to try and cover what our admins are responsible for over a 24 hour period. Most of this work is behind the scenes administrative and technical work not chat room work.

We have a number of room moderators who are chosen to have a coverage of all time zones. You rarely see more than one in a room as they chat at different times. They tend to be responsible for one room, but have the ability to help out other rooms if needed.

The comment the moderation is quite strict is not true, it is very rare for a moderator to take any action including warning people. None of our chatters seem to fear anything as there is, when we are busy, a constant chatting with freedom and fun. If you read our rules they are pretty clear and not over the top for any reasonable person.

None of our admins or mods have commented here when they we working for varichat. The 1st review written here is a member who recently became admin of our forums. She wrote the review about 12 months before becoming the admin of the forums.

“As a mother of a teenage daughter who is looking to...”

Written on: 02/09/2017 by Stephanie41 (1 review written)

As a mother of a teenage daughter who is looking to expand her horizons, I take her wishes seriously. For her safety and my own peace of mind, I always look myself at any websites she wants to use to see if I think they are suitable and worth it. In the case of this chat site, I can honestly say no. I can appreciate what is trying to be done here, with registration, as yes it does keep out trolls and so on. I also like the Arcade idea - this gives things to do on the site if it's… Read Full Review

No one is ever asked to give a picture on this site. As a matter of fact it is frowned upon by the mods and regular members to do so.

There are only about 10 -15 banned users at most. They were people caught breaking the serious rules as listed and were a danger to other users.

The site is growing weekly with new chatters joining every day.

This review is totally inaccurate as to what really happens.

You hit the nail on the head," This is looking like a case of if you aren't liked you are chucked out." I also found out, there is a sacrificial kicking to make a conversation point.
I am sure they are happy in their little world, I was happy to ignore and move away, but I have just received a Very Slanderous allegation against me from my review,take care

This review has a number of inaccuracies.

No one asks for pictures and to my knowledge never do. If someone was asking a person who didn't want to they would be warned to stop doing so. At no stage has any of the Admins or moderators asked such things, it is not our policy to do so, nor will it ever be. If you read our safety pages we give warnings about sharing pictures on the net. We also talk about actions you can take if someone is making you feel uncomfortable or feel bullied.

As far as banned users, there is currently 7 banned users in total for the site(out of 780 registered chatters). Some who used multiple accounts trying to hurt our chatters. Some accounts on forums were spam accounts that all forums get, they tend to be from people trying to advertise pornography. None of those forums accounts are from the main chat site. We have since found a better way of dealing with these nefarious registrations and they are removed and banned before they get in. This is standard procedure for the vast majority of forums on the web.

I note that the largest independent chat site on the net who has 1000s of chatters in its room at any given time, their forums are used about as much as ours are.

We do not ban because we don't like someone. We use evidence base procedures. We actually work very hard to make sure we do not unfairly ban someone. We also do not over moderate the rooms. Interestingly our members are really good chatters, they don't do anything that requires a warning mute or kick in general. Being good chatters means the room can seem busy with only 10 in a room.

The forums are used by far more people than site workers.

You are complaining about standard SEO(Search Engine Optimisation)practices that all sites use in order to get a better ranking on Google. That is an effort to grow the site for the benefit of our chatters. Interestingly it is working with new registrations and chatters daily. SEO is a standard thing all professionally run sites do. You would be silly to not do so as search engines is where people find businesses these days. Google even helps you to do this. I note at the end of this comment you say promotion seems nonexistent yet you complain about the use of standard SEO practice.

That brings us to the dying comment. We are a new and growing site. New chat sites are never busy 24/7 in the first 3 years of existence especially sites that use safe practices (there are very few). Even the currently biggest independent chat site(which does not use safe practices for its chatters) went through this at its beginnings. I note at certain times we are busier than a number of rooms on this site.

I think this person has never been to this site as it isn't my experience or the experience of my friends there. No one is ever bullied into anything from what I have seen

“A breathe of fresh air”

Written on: 13/06/2017 by 264Kennedy (1 review written)

In the world of chat sites Varichat is a breath of fresh air. The bad review here is a perfect example why. He was caught doing attempting to do bad things and was thoroughly investigated and dealt with. It's really safe and friendly. Unlike other site I don't get unwanted private messages. Everyone is really friendly. They have systems in place to protect people, especially those who are between the ages of 13-18. The owners actually chat and really care. They are continually upgrading and… Read Full Review

In response to your review,
The bad comment was only submitted because the Admin made false and unsubstantiated accusations against my wife and me,
And once again I shall point out the FACT that one of these so called caring Admin is Banned and Black Listed in other Chat Rooms for wrong doing and question intentions
That is called “Hypocrisy”

Sharnie97, Thank you for your reply, I will agree each time ( 5 or 6 ) I did get to log in, all the chatters there were friendly and good fun, So no complaints about that from myself, It was just the uncalled for follow up from the Admin that was concerning, they never provided any sort of evidence to back their threats. Thanks again, and yes I have found a friendly fun chat with out anymore grief to go with it.

“Great site and free from trolls”

Written on: 17/05/2017

These chat rooms might not be the busiest but at least you are chatting with decent people and not having your chat spoiled by trolls, spammers and idiots flooding the chat. Moderation is quite strict but I like that because it means you don't have to put up with idiots. If you are a good chatter then the mods are not an problem. I know this site will grow, because the admins care about their chatters and theres more than just chatrooms there, it has an arcade too with lots of good games… Read Full Review

Brand new site. Good people... safe for younger chatters. Very helpful site and room admins, and moderators. Easy to use site. Has a great forums attached. I really enjoy it and have a laugh with people from all over the world! They have different skins for forums so you can choose what you like. No online advertising unlike some of the bigger rooms. They take site security seriously and do not give information on to a third party. The site has zero tolerance to trolls and is anti… Read Full Review
