How to get ride of the perverts?

Now that my new website chatocracy has opened for one week, we start to see our first visitors.

The problem we have is that many of them seem to simply enjoy taking naked picture of themselves for all of us to see.

Since we use a rating system, if we had enough visitors the perverts should be automatically put at the very end of the list and be invisible to the normal visitors. But for the moment they keep showing up and may scare the other people away.

We think of several strategies we are going to use to hide them without relying on the rating system. The simplest one would be to simply allow the visitors to specify that they are indeed going to take off there clothes on the webcam. We could also try to automatically detect the offending pictures.

Whatever we do, we hope that soon we'll get screenshot of our page looking different that the one I put here!

Chatocracy is opening

Chatocracy is a website that allows people to have one to one conversations on the webcam. After each conversation you can rate the person you have been talking to ; the better ranking you get, the more people you can talk to.

My brother and me have been working on this website for the last few weeks. It is still beta so if you encounter problems please report it.
