Cam4 uses live administrators 24 x 7 x 365 to monitor all activity on cam4. Automated programs also monitor user activity. The main goal is to block illegal activity (underage people, etc.), spammers, and people who are abusive. Some of you may have not been able to chat or worse, not able to access the webcams. I’d like to explain what happened to you and why.
There are two types of bans on Cam4.
Administrator Site Ban
An administrator will ban you for looking underage, spamming URLs, capturing video, scamming people or ignoring repeated warnings for other policy abuses such as playing videos or still images. This ban is a complete site ban. You will not be able to access the site again. If you are of age, you can email customer support a copy of your ID to have your account reinstated.
Broadcaster Chat Ban
Any cam broadcaster may ban you from their room for any reason. This is setup so the broadcaster does not have to deal with abusive people. A broadcaster can click on the person’s name in chat and select Moderator Room Options > Ban from the drop down menu. The person will be kicked from the cam and not allowed back into this cam. The offender can still view and chat on other cams on cam4.
Also there is an automated point system in place. As you come to Cam4 and watch cams, you get positive points. If you are banned by broadcasters, then you get negative points. If you are banned multiple times, then your account is automatically chat banned on the entire Cam4 site. You can still view all the cams but you cannot chat on any of them. The ban on your chat is not permanent. As soon as you earn enough positive points, your chat privileges will come back. This could take a couple of days.
