Let me tell you the reasons why this site sucks.
The first issue is that there's no real moderation team. Because of this, every single other complaint I and others have made about this site often are as bad as people make them out to be, if not much worse. While the site is relatively small and obscure, it desperately needs an effective moderation team to clean the house.
However, this is not the worst issue. The worst issue is that there's an overabundance of pedophiles on the site, many of whom seem to have been using the site for a number of years now without consequence. Maybe Chris Hansen should be using this site for his Hansen vs. Predator show, because he could have a field day with it and get enough content to keep the show running for a few years.
It's honestly a wonder that there hasn't been any kind of huge sting operation based around the site. A large number of the adults who use the site are pedophiles or are so close to it that they're only not pedophiles because of a technicality in the dictionary definition. A large number of the teens on the site are really just adults pretending to be teens so they can solicit sexual conversations (and possibly even nudes) from actual teenagers.
There's no truly effective safeguard to keep a pedophile from contacting a child on this site. While a minor's profile will initially be set on a safe mode that prevents anyone over a certain age (that age is calculated with the half your age plus seven rule in mind), this safe mode is easily turned off and there's nothing preventing an adult from sending a message to a minor if the safe mode is turned on.
While you might consider this a petty complaint, consider this: back when MySpace was a thing, anyone under 16 or 18 would automatically have their profiles set to private. If memory serves me correctly, it'd be difficult for anyone to get into contact with you if your profile was set to private on MySpace, and this was back in 2008 or 2009. Hell, even for a site that's arguably still relevant today (and, even though it's not necessarily mainstream, still a lot bigger than Chat Hour), Interpals prevents anyone over 18 from contacting someone under 16.
There's no reason why, in 2018, Chat Hour couldn't have a similar set of safeguards in place. If the people who own the site want to make the argument that the site is primarily for people to set up hookups and flings and stuff of that nature, that's fine; but if they want to make that argument, there's absolutely no reason why kids should be able to use the site to begin with.
Of course, to enforce any kind of age limit would require the site to have some sort of effective moderation team. As it stands, and as I mentioned at the start of this rant, there is no effective moderation team on this site--even the stuff that does get reported is often left there for weeks or months after it was initially reported.
Even something as simple as the 13+ age limit in place is sometimes left unenforced, which means there is the occasional profile belonging to someone claiming to be 10-12 (or, in once case that I was unfortunate enough to encounter, someone claiming to be 7), is left there. I do have to wonder what the credentials of the moderation team is, given how poorly they enforce this one simple rule.
If you happen to be a furry or someone with an incest fetish, don't worry; because Chat Hour has heaps of people into the same stuff as you. I suppose once you know there's a bunch of pedos on the same site, that picture of an anthropomorphic wolf doesn't seem so weird after all.
That's kind of the story of Chat Hour, really. You end up running into a bunch of bizarre fetishes you wish you hadn't heard about.
A few paragraphs ago I touched on adults sometimes claiming to be children on the site. The problem of fake profiles is also hugely prevalent. Many of them are quite obviously fake, too; using pictures of models, porn stars, or of the scene queens that were popular ten or twelve years ago. You would think that this practice would go away in the long term because people would call them out on it, but the culture on the site seems to largely turn a blind eye to this.
I should point out that, at least in the last year or two, people have been less inclined to use pictures of the scene queens from the '00s. I don't think this is reflective of the culture on the site getting cleaner as it is the people on there realising that people are going to recognise a scene queen more or less instantly now. There's still a lot of people on there with emo in their username, so I guess if you're looking for someone to talk about your love of Paramore and My Chemical Romance with, Chat Hour has you covered.
There's no real limit to how many accounts a person can have on here. It really only seems to be limited by the number of email accounts you have, so a dedicated person who's been on the internet long enough to have accumulated a large number of email addresses can set up a dozen accounts today if they're so inclined.
Because of this, it's difficult to really assess how many people are actually fake on the site. You know a lot of these people probably have multiple accounts, so it could be ten people who have fake accounts or it could be a hundred. You'll never know for sure unless you buy the site and start limiting how many accounts can be associated with a single IP address.
Unfortunately, even a lot of the real people on the site are only on there to discuss sex. So when you do find someone who you can have a decent conversation with, it's like finding a diamond in the rough--you just don't see it that often.
A lot of the time, even these clean chats will disappoint you. Either they'll turn sexual after a while, or it'll be some weird dude like brocleanchatonly who seems to have a weird fetish for LGBT+ women to the point they're the only people he'll talk to on the site, or the people aren't anywhere near as smart as they'd like to pretend.
I'm honestly not sure what's worse about the site: the number of fake profiles on there, or that the people who aren't there to just talk about sex are often pseudo-intellectuals who want to talk about stuff they only have the most basic understanding of. Word to the wise, guys--if you want to debate politics or religion on a chat room, you probably don't have enough of an understanding of the subject o be doing that.
Of course, the pedophile problem is the worst problem; but there are a lot of other issues there.
While there may be some argument to be made that if anyone tried to impose some level of decorum onto the site it'd go out of business, it often amazes me that the site has remained in business for as long as it has. How the site hasn't been the target of any kind of lawsuits or police investigations that I know of is beyond me, because I think a federal-level police team or lawyer could have a field day with this site.

I joined teen chat and Zac, Craig, benji and Heni owned me with hilarious jokes that I didn't admit were funny (they were knee slappers), I was also lured and groomed by a person by the name of Ekofy, or musicislife. He lured me into his RV and fondled my toes after he put me in a Valium enduced coma.

Review by Dharmasivam3 years ago
This site was bought and run by an allegedly corrupt owner who did nothing to police the site from all the things that led to what was becoming, a downward spiral on a limited course.
Too cheap to pay for a tech to enforce the rules, she opts for choosing moderators from the chatroom members to act like they are keeping things in order. That is only when they were onsite, and only when they actually read or witnessed a site violation, or were told of one by another member and they decide to do something, when they rarely did anything claiming lack of proof. A chatter says on their profile that they are 12, age limit is 13, but the mod says they have to see the chatter say it or they need to ask the chatter personally to make sure, because in the mod's words, what people put on their profile isn't always the truth. Really? That is just one example of the ineffectiveness of enforcing site rules with a chat member chosen moderator.
This mod was more concerned about chat huggggggsss and loooools and her chat moms and sisters and all of the chatters who brown nosed her than actually policing the site. And then there was her chatroom hubby who she would openly flirt with and then allowing him to become a co moderator somehow. Then they acted like an unstoppable juggernaut addicted to the power to ban those they didn't like. I won't mention their names ,it does no good as she left months ago after a cyber break up with her chat hubby, who took full mod power.
The site was easily hacked by numerous people. It is a 1990's flash program that any hack could get into with little effort. I know this firsthand as I was banned by someone who hacked the mod's account, and banned me for saying "hi lady" in a private message. I think this person was upset because I was chatting with a girl that he was snubbed by. I had screenshots of him basically admitting it as he bragged to others in the room, jumping out of the mod's account before she came back from 'afk'. I showed this to the mod who said it was impossible to hack her account. Really? This hacker was one of her brown nosed chat buddies.
And the whole banning thing was a joke. You just needed to get another screen name and you could be back in 5 minutes or less. The mod would ban a profile pic that wasn't erotic but it just showed cleavage, jealous of other guys chatting to her prolifically and not with the mod anymore.
And then there's the cutesy ways people would avoid swearing by giving it a misspelling or adding a space or a dot. Examples- fu<k, shiite, f.u ck. ... and the most taboo words skype and yahoo, because the site doesn't want people to leave and go use a more efficient chat client, so merely saying the name was a bannable offense.
The site never progressed into the 2000s, it's demise was inevitable. All because the owner didn't care about it. It was just a cheap investment by someone without a clue.

I've Been in Chat Hour for about 3 years . It seems to me that > Hotmanmike69, BicuriousDad55, and Ojimmie ( James Maurice ) run most of the FAKE ACCOUNTS . They rotate their fake accounts in rotations of four ..... Some of the accounts are pictures of underage boys ! It's really sick .. They are in mostly Bi Chat and Gay Chat ... You report the accounts of the kids that even say on there profiles >> I'm actually 12 .... and Chat HOUR does nothing to ban them ... Why can't they check IP address like AOL Chat did at one time and banned this from happening? It's really sick of people stealing pix of kids off the internet and making fake profiles of them .. You know >> them are some ones CHILDREN... To me, Chat Hour needs to be shut down !!

Full of haters, perverts, pedophiles! U can email them about a complaint and they do nothing. Threats and ur private information are posted there and they still nothing. No mods in the Chatrooms but the censored room and even there the mods are unfair with how they monitor the room. They ban innocent people and keeps the perverts and trolls.

I am a off father. Number one this is a hook up site or dating site. Why are there teens on here. I'm divorced and got my 12 year old sons tablet this morning found messages between him and a boy who my guess is around 17. Probably a child molester. When I get ahold of this company I will shut it down. I hope the owners of this site have good lawyers. Cause I will file a law suit. Teens under 18 have no business on dating sites. This world is changing fast and we as parents need to stand up and shut places like this down.

Review by Pinner Altrui4 years ago
My son visited a room about gaming. He was approached by a man who claimed to be 15. He immediately started flirting and sending sexually laced comments to my son, who was 9 at the time (he has a cousin who is 15, so he trusts that age). When my son said he seemed much older than 15, he said, "Oops! I must have transposed the numbers. I'm 51, but a kid at heart!" He offered to send pics of himself, "artistic" nudes. He really played up being a friend to my son, acting like he was a caring older brother or something. This is child molestation, nothing short of it. This site should be shut down and fined for child endangerment and encouraging child molestation.

BEST CHAT ROOM EVER! Yes, it was even better back in the days when it was known only as weirdtown, but it is still better than ANY other chat site I have ever seen! I avoid the one censored room because as with any moderators, they are jackasses. I stick to the Adult Room, which has been my home for the past 10 years. It really is like a family! There are even people there that have been there longer than me; and it's awesome that everyone knows everyone, but we are also always open to newcomers. Be ready for anything. You may walk into a conversation about necrophilia, holiday plans, scat-play, pizza toppings, or a romping-fun time with a verbal battle of the wits with trolls, cloners, and others who perfect the art of fighting online! Sometimes it's so busy it's hard to read everything, and other times it's totally dead for up to a half hour at a time. The best part of this place is that you are free to curse, rant, express unpopular opinions ("Adolf Hitler was the best man to ever live", for example), use ethnic slurs, attack, harass, and otherwise play like people ought to be able to! Don't be surprised to see people having "cyber sex" right out in the open... and often in abnormal ways such as in diapers or with animals. You never know what you are going to get, but more often than not you will be so engaged you will have a hard time logging off! I guarantee you will pass the speed portion of your typing class if you stick around with us!
