What the frig?!?

What's up with the ads? I can't chat with out a freaking ad popping up. A once promising great chat app is now total crap!!!

Update....the ads have calmed now but still are annoying when chatting and the ad takes over entire screen and once you exit it pal either loses connection or freezes all together...

Another update... what happened to vids? I can't video chat with anyone anymore? People tell me they try to send and it says I'm mobile and using another pal version... I have the most updated version.... annoying

Some advice

Admin functions need to be totally eliminated. It was like that on the old yahoo chat and everyone preferred it It’s totally unusable. I’ve been banned/dotted hundreds of times for no good reason at all. Some admin is drunk and just decides to ban you. You get banned for personal problems against you. You argue doctrine in a spirituality chat that some admin doesn’t like: dotted. You make a harmless joke and violate some rule about you must be kind and caring: banned. If someone just doesn’t like you: banned. And on and on The moderation tools drive tons of people off. I don’t use it because I can’t even utter sentences without someone flipping out and banning. Totally normal things like it’s a nice day out will send someone off with his finger on the ban trigger. The ban sword is at your neck every instant in most rooms Thankfully there are some no ban rooms and it’s basically only those rooms that thrive. The MOST popular rooms are all no ban rooms

I have been aware of Paltalk and been on Paltalk most before long time ago however there are some disturbing things that I do not like about this yes you can video chat yes you can talk to people. But what I don’t see is why would a creator or a streamer want to be on here that’s trying to make money yet they cannot cash out any other rewards that they are getting for leveling up. They insist that you buy a Videos gift or give a gift every day causing you to have to use money real money your fans buy things to boost you up but the only people that make money out of this is Paltalk there’s no revenue or incentive to even stay on here and this is why most of the rooms are empty so as far as a streamer try to do content and make money this is not the site or the app
