** I don't like the idea of having my picture posted on the net.
We are a swinger community, not a model competition. ;) You don't have to post a picture to participate in the community. A picture does help to get noticed though. ;-)
As a VIP or premium users you can create a personal gallery, where you can define who may view those pictures.
** I found my profile on google. What is really privat here and what is public?
We distinguish between four levels of Privacy: Public, Registered, VIP/Premium, and Private. Anything public will be picked up by search engines and can be viewed by unregistered users. This includes your profile, weblog, and public gallery pictures. Registered users can view your guestbook, things you type in a public chat, and your posts in the forum.
Some features, most notably webcams and galleries, can be set to private or VIP/Premium. VIP/Premium access ensures a bit more privacy, since these are people who made a significant effort on this site and not just anyone who happens to wander by. Anything private can only be viewed by those people you add to your corresposnding access list.
However, ANYTHING you display on the internet can be saved and copied by those who can view it, if they chose to do so. Always keep this in mind! If you give someone access to your webcam, he could save these pictures for later. This is not a specific problem of this site, but the way the internet works. If it can be displayed on a computer it can be saved.
** I would post a picture if it didn't have to be so explicit!
This may be an adult dating site, but noone said it had to be. You should post the picture you are most comfortable with.
** Isn't this concept of rating naked flesh a bit shallow?
A picture often says a lot more about a person than just how he/she looks. However, this site is not about the rating. It's just a theme to encourage outgoing people to communicate with each other. This site is about meeting people. If you came here looking for pr0n, head this way.
** My rating is so low! Am I THAT ugly?

Pictures are displayed randomly and different people vote for different pictures. Your rating is influenced by other peoples taste and the quality of the pictures. See if the quality of your picture can be improved. (Better lighting, colors, pose, etc.). Maybe you can find a good hobby photographer to help you. If all else fails, we'll help you with a professional opinion. ;-)
But no matter how you look, there is always someone prettier or uglier than you. ;-) The rating is supposed to be fun and provide an easy way to get to know other people of similar interests. It really shouldn't matter much to you how others rate you!

** Why can't I display my email address or URL in my picture or description?
 

This is not a marketing platform. For one we want our users to have a good time and do not want them to be confronted with any content outside our control on this site. Also users e-mail adresses in pictures or descriptions are very likely to be picked up by spammers. Apart from protecting our users, we are well aware of the fact that "traffic" is worth money and you are not going to get a free ride here either. :)

That being said, if you are a user of this community and have a cool non-commercial website you want to promote, just let us know. If it's good or fun, we'll sponsor you a spot in our banner rotation. :)
We also accept traffic trades from worthwhile sites that do not javascript their users to death!

** I really miss feature xyz from site abc!!
Drop us a note. If we like the feature, we'll add it.
**

I don't want people to see me here anymore. How do I delete my account?

At the bottom of the "My Profile" page is a button to delete your account. But why don't you just delete your picture? Then your cookies, guestbook entries, and everything else you collected will still be there if you ever decide to come back.
** I want more search criterias!
The search function is constantly being updated. Check back often. :)
** User xyz is abusing/threatening me!
E-Mail us his name with a few examples of his "work". We'll deal with the person swiftly and appropriately.
** Talking about abuse, why isn't there an ignore function?
We believe that ignoring other people is impolite. We also believe that the kind of people who need to be ignored should leave this service. Quickly and quietly.
** What is a VIP account?

VIP users have the same access as premium users. There are several ways to achieve this status. There are, have been and will be certain promotions (i.e. women posting their picture) to acquire VIP. Also active users are randomly awarded VIP status - don't ask, we won't tell you how it works. Be there and you will eventually figure it out. ;)

Of course, there is always the option to spend ten bucks and instantly get full access by becoming a premium user.

** I get free B$ or a VIP account for linking my homepage on other sites?

When a user outside of Kiss Chance clicks on your profile, you will be credited 1 B$ Cent. If you are not a VIP or Premium user, we will give you a free VIP for one month after 500 clicks. So by linking your profile homepage you not only get more popular, but you also get rich. ;-)
We are only counting one click per user or IP of course.

You can use this HTML code to link your profile on your Homepage or other sites that allow HTML:

** What are BCS'?

BCS are small awards you can give to your friends on this site to let them know that you think they are cool. :) BCS stands for "Bouncing Cookie Stars". It was the most obvious name for them. Really! ;-)

Each night every user will recieve 5 credits (up to a max of 10) to give away as BCS. Also each night every user will lose 1 BCS. This will keep things moving. ;-) You can award a BCS to the same person as many times as you like (them :).

** How do I add outdoor sex locations to the google earth database?

First you need to install Google Earth if you haven't already. When you click on the database link, your google earth should start up and load our outdoor sex database. The small lips logo on the map marks places already in the database.
To add a new location you need to set a placemark (the little pin symbol) on the map exactly where your outdoor place is. Give the placemark a good name and description, so everyone knows what that place is about. When you are done, right click your placemark and "save as". Make sure you save it as a KML, not a KMZ, file. Then upload this file on the outdoor sex page on this site.
Valid places we'd like in the database are those where swingers meet, quiet places for couples, or nude beaches for outgoing people. Basically anything that is outdoor and where sex is fun - alone or with others.

** What's this normalize/enhance stuff for the picture uploads?

When you upload your picture we automatically convert to a maximum size and add a watermark to it. Optionally this process allows the picture quality to be enhanced

Normalize Spreads the color spectrum over the whole range.
(Use on pictures with dull colors)
Enhance A digital filter to remove noise.
(Helps those ole webcam pictures)
Antialias Antialiasing.
(If you don't know what it is, you don't need it. :)
Blurr Applies a slight gaussian blurr.
(When enhancing a very bad picture, it's a good idea to smooth it afterwards)

** How does netmeeting availability work?

If you select this option in your profile, the site will query your IP address for a listening netmeeting client. If you are running netmeeting a "Call on Netmeeting" link will be displayed in your profile to Premium and VIP users. This feature only works when you are online, i.e. actively using the site. To stay listed while you are not browsing the site or chatting, use the message pager in "My Messages".

Please note that the netmeeting availability and the sites webcam feature are completely seperate. While the site offers the functionality of a netmeeting list server also, the main webcam feature allows you to publish your webcam on Kiss Chance itself.

PERFORMANCE WARNING: If your connection to this site is below average, querying your client for netmeeting can further slow down page loading. To minimize this effect, tests will time out after 3 seconds, possibly not detecting an active client on bad connections. Also if you are behind a firewall which does not "reject" connections but drops the corresponding packets, you should disable this feature to increase loading times.

SECURITY WARNING: Netmeeting is a point to point protocoll. Your netmeeting link can only be a direct referreral to your current IP address. Malicious users might use this information to try to compromise your computer. (This is the case for all netmeeting listings.) Use our webcam uploader to publish your webcam on Kiss Chance to avoid this problem. Our webcam feature is server based.

** I clicked the link in the confirmation email, but still cannot log in!

The site tracks your login session through a cookie. If you have cookies disabled, you will not be able to log in. The cookie does not contain any of your information, but simply a session ID that allows our system to identify you as a logged in user. Enabling "session cookies" in your browser will suffice and still protect your privacy. If you have any concerns, please see our Privacy Statement.

Session support without cookies has been added, but is in an experimental state. We still recommend the use of cookies!

** Instead of user pictures I just see some "Do not leech" graphics!

To protect our users pictures from being hotlinked or spread through other means, we verify the referer before serving a picture to ensure pictures will only be displayed if called from within an Kiss Chance webpage.This is to ensure your pictures are not spread on the net outside this site and to secure private gallery pictures.
Some software products allow you to block your browser from sending a valid referrer. You need to have this turned off. The "referer" tells the visiting website, which page you are browsing and which page you came from. That information is useful for webmasters to verify their content is actually accessed from their webpage and to see who is linking to them.
Programs which block referers are, for example:
AdSubtract, Webwasher, AtGuard. See their manual to find out how to disable this "feature".
f you have any concerns, please see our Privacy Statement.

** I just voted for someone, but it still says "no rating yet". Eh?
A user needs 10 votes for his rating to be displayed.
** I just uploaded a clean picture and it's listed as x-rated?!
Every picture you upload will be manually reviewed. A new picture will be x-rated by default until it is reviewed and given an r-rating if appropriate. We feel this is more convenient than not displaying unrated pictures at all.
** What's the Audio Lounge good for?
 

The Audio Lounge is a place to publish any type of Audio. People know what you look like, but now they will also know what you sound like.
The options here are endless. You can record a simple greeting, tell a story or try some karaoke.

Please do not upload songs you do not hold the copyright to! This is not meant as a platform to share music!

You can either upload wav or mp3 files. For short simple recordings you can use the audio recorder included in windows. Longer files need to be converted to MP3 first as they would be too big to upload. If you need help with the tech stuff, drop us a note.

Some fun links to get started:

http://www.vanbasco.com/ VanBasco's Karaoke Player is a free midi player which displays the lyrics in karaoke files. The site also has a search engine for karaoke midis. :)
   

We are looking for volunteers to write a good tutorial on audio recording in windows.

** What is this "real" tag?
  People who chose to prove their identity here will recieve such a tag. It is a fairly good guarantee that the pictures of this user are actually her/him.
If you prefer not to show your face, you can take a picture of whichever part of your body you usually display in your profile or gallery together with the item.
** What's the daily bonus for?
  Every day you receive a few B$ as your daily bonus. You get paid for these:
- Activity on the site, including the chat.
- 5 Cent for a profile picture.
- 2 Cent for every non-private gallery picture.
- 5 cent for every published story.
