Welcome to a brief guide to understanding your chat settings on Chaturbate. Let’s just jump right into it.
Font & Size
When you’re on camera, it can be hard to read what your viewers are saying in the free chat. To avoid some unattractive squinting, maximize the size of font, and change the colour to committing that pops out to you.
Settings > Font Size > 20pt
Settings > Chat Color > Chose your colour
On occasion, the chat may randomly turn back to the default settings. Don’t worry, it only takes a moment to change it back to your preferred settings again.
“Notify When Leaving”
A default setting of the website is to notify you whenever mods, fans, and users with tokens leaves your room. I found this to be both distracting, and annoying. To turn this off:
Settings > Notify on Leave For > No Users
You can also do this for notifying you when someone enters the room, but personally I recommend leaving it on so you can be sure to greet those users.
To add graphics to your chat type a semicolon (:), followed by a word to prompt options to chose from.
For example :tipifyoulike or :dancingBear
Removing Grey Users
“Grey users” or “Greys” are Chaturbate members who have not purchased any tokens, and therefore cannot tip you. I had a few grey regulars who were pretty respectful, and just enjoyed coming to my chat room to hang out, and enjoy the show. There are, however, a lot of grey users who demand models show their bodies, and engage in sexual acts without tips. As you can imagine, this gets pretty frustrating, so some chose to block grey users from typing in their chats. Here’s how:
Settings > Chats Allowed By: > Users who have tokens
There are a nice few ways to customize your chat. Play with your settings, and figure out what works best for you! Thank you for checking out this “Technically Speaking” article.
