I was lucky to be part of an amazing session on MFC on Friday but was really suprised at how many moochers/freeloaders there were in the room. At one point there was just under 600 people in the room yet there were probably only 10 of us actually tipping tokens.

At one stage there was a goal of 2000 tokens for a very worthwhile outcome. If only 100 people had tipped 20 tokens, small potatoes, we'd have easily hit the goal. As it was, the session nearly finished without hitting the goal until a couple of us stepped in. When it looked like it wasn't going to hit, the room emptied really quickly so it was obvious they were just waiting for the goal.

I expected some lurkers (I did for my first couple of sessions just to get the jist of things) but must admit it annoys me there are so many, especially when someone is putting their all into the show.

What's the etiquette for members to call other members out for non-tipping? It's the model's room so do not want to cross any boundaries there but how do models feel about members chivvying the room to participate more?

As a member I'd just put you on ignore immediately so I never had to see anything you typed, ever.

In my experience it is most often regulars in a room that makes a model hit the goals, it is not some sort of crowd funding where a 100 people tips to make a goal happen. Personally I don't care about the goal I tip because I think the model have deserved it for some reason. As long as I fell have been entertained I tip, it doesn't have to be for something sexual. I don't expect others to tip or berate them for not tipping, ultimately it is up to the model to figure out how to get people to tip.

I get annoyed for the tipping members. I don't have high goals, but even then, there can be 20 grey members that don't talk, another 25 that will groan about how hot my body is or something, 10 people with tokens that don't tip and don't talk, and 2 members that fund the entire show. It seems just so incredibly rude to let two or one person fund the entire show for the hopes of getting your rocks off. It makes me want to start password protected shows and say fuck it to people that contribute nothing and freeload on other people's hard earned money.

So I consider it extremely bad form if someone is the room for over an hour without tipping, double if they aren't talking. I don't care if they don't have money or whatever, tokens aren't such a steep buy. It seems super rude for other people to fund an entire show while 10+ people watch for free. :dead: I personally mute/block any non-paying member that gets too "I want to see this" or "Wow so hot show more" kind of a deal. I'd prefer it was me telling them to be quiet, but if a member wants to let me know that it bothers them, thumbs up lemme know.

Yeah but that's how it's supposed to work...
Aside from scamming people there isn't any way a model can get these people to tip if they don't want to pay for a listed item or a show - simple, porn is free.
Friendship is also considered to be free. There's not a novel way to get around it unless the lurkers want to interact with the model and aren't there just for the live show - and plenty of them are like this.
It's just how tip-based sites are mate, these people are taking advantage of the crowd-funding and there's no way a model will get most of these people to tip if she stood on her head or pulled a chicken out of her arsehole.

Password protected shows are a great idea.

How something is supposed to work and how it ends up actually working can be two very different things. From what I have heard public cum shows and the other explicit stuff that we see today wasn't even allowed on MFC in the beginning. The point is that you don't have to figure out how to get money from everyone in the room, you just need to get enough people to think that what you do is worth tipping for it to be sustainable.

I can understand where the member is coming from.. I notice I have a few regulars that have never tipped me, but they are always chatting and they keep the conversation fun, so truthfully it doesn't bother me. I did wonder for the other members who are always tipping if it bothers them at all and if they even noticed. I'm just going to keep showing my love and appreciating to all my tippers, with shout outs and pm's and it will hopefully be motivation for the non tippers cus they'll want to get in on my love!

I do not enjoy members who call out freeloaders. Firstly, some of the members in my room right now are long term friends who have contributed enormously in the past, yet their circumstances have changed and therefore are technically "freeloaders". But I personally wouldn't describe them in that way because them being present and still in my life is worth more than tokens. I would be so upset if they felt like they were being called out by newer members who didn't understand the history. I also sometimes have member friends who don't chat in the room but tip or take me in private quietly, but sometimes will just sit and enjoy the room vibe and any show going on. I want these members to feel ok to do this as I would rather than coming by my room than not. I would be annoyed if a member who didn't know me very well, even if they were tipping, started to call out others for not tipping enough.
Secondly, I don't like this to be brought up. Yes it happens, it is a part of camming that you get lots of freeloaders who have no interest in ever paying. Or maybe they have another favourite model. Or maybe they just aren't ready to tip you yet. But for the most part you do get long term freeloaders who have no intention of tipping and are there primarily to see a show. I don't want any more attention drawn to them than necessary. Imagine I were a busker doing a live performance, sure I might hustle the crowd a bit, but there will be plenty of people who will watch the whole show and will never contribute. It wouldn't exactly place a good vibe if someone who dropped a tenner in the tip jar started shaming others who weren't tipping. It would probably just draw the crowd away. And just like in busking, a larger crowd draws in more people, and more people means more chance of being spotted by a potential tipper.
This goes to my third reason for not wanting this: Most of my favourite members and highest tippers started as freeloaders who watched a free show one day and then came back another day and started tipping, so shaming them for watching for free is completely unproductive seeing as while they may not be paying now, that doesn't mean they won't pay in the future. I remember years ago doing a show on my balcony where barely anyone tipped, and then later that evening I did a separate session and a guy who was viewing as a guest at the time came in and beat my highest tip over 7k tokens, a few days later he dropped 10k.

Basically, what you see as a member may not be the whole truth, that also goes to models. Yes there will often be guys who chase the free shows on MFC and have no intention of tipping, but that is just part of the job. As a member you should be focusing less on those members getting the show for free, and more about your own experience. Tipping members who stop by regularly do get treated differently, they gain a closer friendship with the model, a warmer feeling and more respect from other members within the room. By tipping and contributing to the show you can be part of the interactive community and therefore are enjoying the camming experience to the fullest. Some guys just want to see free pussy and like it to be live but don't care about any kind of personal aspect, but for many guys they go to camsites for completely different reasons. It's no different to them than all the millions of dudes who watch free porn without anymore thought post wank. It can be annoying as a model and as a member, primarily when those people either record and post the shows online or when they hassle you with constant requests, but at the end of the day, I am a freeloader. I occasionally go onto a guest account and watch girls I like to see what they're up to, I enjoy their entertainment and I don't always tip. Sometimes I tip, but most of the time I lurk as a guest for five to thirty minutes and then move on. This is how the site is built. It is not your place as a member to question it.

But, of course, saying this, I made a decision to no longer perform public cumshows due to this. I decided that I would rather give my time to the members who contribute in private shows and have a great experience with just them than perform a big show for the masses. It's a shame as I love the idea of doing a show for a group of people, but for some reason group shows just aren't that popular, and it also means that those who've already tipped can't join the show. I am just waiting for MFC to start a "recently tipped and friendslist only" room option for when a cumshow countdown is completed where if you want to join in you have to tip even just a few tokens to watch the show. Unfortunately I don't think this will happen as the cumshows on MFC bring in a lot of traffic, many of which get hooked on the site and end up spending.

The worst thing you can do for the model is to call out other members on not tipping. No faster way to ensure that people don't tip.

It really is a model's job to get members to tip them (literally) and not something that you should really interfere with. The only exception, and really the only method I've ever seen work, is offering to tip-match (up to a certain point). You can offer to match other member's tokens in order to clear the goal quickly. So if some guy tips the 25 tokens he has left, match the tip and that's 50 tokens off the countdown straight away. That in turn some times convinces other members to tip because they can see the countdown coming down quickly.

But that's only if you wanted to, and had the tokens to spare. It's in no way your responsibility to ensure a countdown is met.

A good way to encourage people to tip without taking control of the room away from the model is to offer to match tips. You may want to ask the model first to make sure it's OK with her for you to mention it. Offer to match the tips of any new tippers. You can do it for a certain amount of time, tokens, or tippers.

Maybe you offer to match tips for the next 5 people who haven't tipped yet tonight. Dude #1 tips 15, you tip 15. Dude #2 tips 10, you tip 10. Dude #3 tips 25, you tip 25. Dude #4 tips 3, you tip 3. Dude #5 tips 75, you tip 75.

Was that a lot? Not really. Was it more participation, and perhaps a little fun for the room? Yes.

I see Bob and I think alike!

This is an on-going source of frustration for many/most consistent tippers. I'm not sure that even long-time models fully grok (understand) the sense of injustice that being among the 1% who are paying for the other 99% generates. I'm sure there are exceptions but for the most part, I don't see models consistently being a top tipper in another models room.

I disagree with JBB, I never get upset with a tipping member encouraging other members to tip. The only exception is the guy who has made a few 10 tokens tips and then spams the various tip her emojis constantly. Encouragement by tippers has on occasion, convinced me to tip a model, especially if I'm not a regular. That said I don't think it is super effective.

I'm sometimes bothered by talkers who never tip, but I honestly don't see it that much anymore. I'm much more tolerant of a guy who says stupid things if he tips a lot, conversely if member adds to the conversation but only tips rarely that's ok. Unlike models who see guys lurking in their rooms day after day with tokens and saying nothing, I don't notice these people at all. So the guy who seems to talk all the time and get the models attention, but never tips I definitely notice.

It is really incumbent on the model to get new tippers, and I really love models who say we need X number of new tippers or Y number of tokens from somebody besides the regulars. It makes me feel like they appreciate the regular tippers.

Virtually all models appreciate a member who offers to match tips. So if there are 1,000 tokens until naked you say I'll match tips until we hit goal. Yes, it will probably cost you 500 tokens but better than 1000. I think that is the single most constructive way you can get other people to tip.

But honestly, the ten tippers out of a room of 600 is now the norm on MFC (the tipper percentage isn't getting better and maybe getting lower).

Finally, I know it is super cliche but the Serenity prayer is helpful for adjusting your attitude.

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Now I haven't 100% given up on trying to change things, but I have given up trying to change in the short-term.

Members should never call out others for not tipping, as there may be reasons why beyond just what you see on screen. Such as what @IsabellaSnow mentioned of people losing their jobs, unexpected expenses, etc. Also, there could be someone whom tips privately and isn't shown towards the goal (I do a good blend of public and private tipping).

If anything, encourage others to tip in various ways. Tip matching, tip for a silly comment the model made, etc. Doesn't have to be much. But, most times, if people see the model and others having a good time, others may pitch in. No token should be too small. Yet, I've seen some models set minimum tips at 5 tokens, etc. Which, seems counterproductive, IMO.

Nothing dries my tokens up faster than being told by some other member to start tipping. If the guy has already tipped a lot it bothers me less but I still don't like it. If the guy hasn't tipped at all or a very small amount then it's even worse. At that point I'll either ninja tip so it doesn't count towards a countdown or just stop all together until he shuts up or goes away.

I do agree the ratio of tippers to freeloaders can get depressing and the feeling of carrying countdowns and funding shows that others are enjoying for free can wear you down so you have to either make peace with it because it won't change and just focus on yourself or switch to just doing privates.

I would never do this as I am happy for all tokens, only time I can understand this is to dissuade people from doing the 1 token tip walls. While I appreciate every token, those can get a bit awkward, there are only so many thank you's to do for a total of 50-100 tokens with something that completely disrupts the room. Yellow walls are amazing with a whole array of tips, usually over ten tokens, but the straight up 1 token ones are a bit of a big announcement for not all that much... I definitely wouldn't personally stop anyone from doing it, but I could understand if a model were to have a minimum tip amount to stop that from happening if she had a particularly busy room.

Yep, I can agree with you on the wall. I have only done a few walls personally. Usually, just to scroll a bunch of BS such as gif's, etc off the screen. Otherwise, I prefer to top in higher amounts personally as to me it seems more "personal" if that makes sense. But, like you said, I would think a model would be appreciative of any and all tokens with given with sincerity.

Yes I agree, it's not like you have to do anything for small tips so I don't really see the problem. Nor is it as though you're having to carry around a fuck load of pennies. The only reason I could see is not wanting the crazy 1 token yellow walls, but there are only a few people who do that anyway. I find it strange that it's even an option, it doesn't really give a good image to tippers. I find that a lot guys find the idea of it insulting, even if they are higher tippers themselves. It makes the model seem a bit... snobby? I don't know if that is the right word, but basically as though lower tips are beneath them or something, which to many isn't an attractive trait. Though maybe it's a fetish thing?

Maybe I have different definition of what it means to be "told by some other member to start tipping". Are you saying if you are being specially called out to tip or generally asked to tip by a member?

I get if some member say "Fandago tip the girl" you could be pissed off. But I rarely see that and it is generally a pissing contest between members.

I'm talking about the situation where two guys have been tipping a lot 1/2 dozen have tipped some and the show countdown has been stalled for a long time. One of the big tippers gives the model his last 186 tokens and say in the tip note, "I'm out for the day." The other big tipper thinking he is going to be force to shell out another $150 to clear the count. Starts posting tip emoji, calling for a yellow wall etc. Maybe a couple of the other small tippers join in along with some small tips.

Now you have already spent 100 tokens for some video and tipped 20 tokens for a spank, so you can feel well I've done my part compared to 98%.

Are you really saying in this situation, that actions by the big tippers to solicit more tips cause you to stop tipping? If so why? You'd rather watch the camgirl beg for tokens? or just have her log off?

I don't know if I'd say it's "beneath them" per se. But, I can only speak for myself and the xperiences I've had. I generally don't like to do small tokens as the smaller tips just seem like it distracts the model to say "thank you" for just a couple of tokens. Especially if in conversation. Just like I can't stand the tip sounds, so I tip silenty now.

On the topic of 1 token tip walls...they can be obnoxious and hard to deal with. Ultimately they disrupt the chat and everyone who's tipping larger amounts have to stop what they're doing/talking about and pay attention to some guy, while I struggle to be grateful but also like...not more grateful than I was towards other more substantial tips.

Generally I get 1-token tip walls when the room is busy and chatty and everyone is being super generous. Some guy with not a lot of tokens feels left out and disrupts the chat for 30 seconds. I feel for them, and I get it, but it can be pretty distracting, and lower the average tip amount overall. The guy that was tipping 100 tokens is way more likely to tip 10 after seeing a 1-token tip walls, in my experience. It just lowers the value and has the potential to turn a good, lively room into "let's all chuck nickels onto the stage now."

I try to turn it into a game and keep track of the conversation as best as possible so when it's over we can pick up where we left off.

This is what I struggle with, you don't want to seem ungrateful by not acknowledging each individual tip, but then a million excited thank yous just aren't justified for what equates to 50-100 tokens tops. And then you get this awkward moment where it's clear that you want to move on... Yet they continue... I think when guys do this they misunderstand why yellow walls are amazing. Yellow walls are amazing because you are being so bombarded with gifts and tokens that it becomes amazing, it's not for the sake of having a yellow wall. I also prefer yellow walls when they are a number of members tipping rather than just one. Though if someone say does a yellow wall made up of 100 tokens each then obviously the token amount gets crazy pretty quickly so that warrants excitement. But 1 token walls? You'd be going for a long time to get anything decent. I find it tends to be guys who like the attention and to be a big shot. I have had high tippers do this, and every token is appreciated, but I definitely think dropping it in a standard amount is better.

I'm a consistent tipper, but some days I tip larger amounts then I normally do, but for the most part I'm just a steady token thrower. Primarily the models favorite number if she has one, rounded numbers to keep counts even slightly OCD about rounded out or easily knocked off counting numbers. And then anything off a models tip menu that I like assuming she has a tip menu. I've been in rooms where I've had a model point I'm the only person that has tipped for x number of minutes more shocking when she points out its been like a half hour or more. I don't even notice in most cases if the chat is moving.

I know and expect that people I see in a models room regularly, and may not be tipping as often as I do may still likely be contributing in ways that I don't see so I don't feel the need to say anything to anyone about their tipping habits. Yes we would all prefer that more people are "tipping in", but it doesn't mean we need anyone but the model to state it.

I can't say that I'm going to outright stop tipping or leave if a member starts demanding we tip more or if some "bigger tipper" tries to flex that on the room. But, I can say it is one of those things that if they become a horde over the room despite how much fun I might be having that can make me take a break regardless of what I've contributed to the night.

Thanks for the many constructive replies - they've been very helpful. I especially like the idea of offering a token-match as an incentive, think that has good potential to help a room if a model is ok with it (I'd always check first via PM or pre-show).

I wasn't really sure of the dynamic when I first came on MFC and, admittedly, didn't expect the friendship and camaraderie that can build up between models and their regs. I've found it a really positive experience and I guess the original post was bourne out of frustration that it can sometimes be a minority experience. But yes, camming is what it is and the majority seem to want the moon on a stick.

And members hitting ignore on other members? Fair enough, their prerogative but if it had been my first time I wouldn't have really been able to learn anything from my mistake and could have just carried on, the chance of being educated/reformed missed.

Thanks again!

If you consider them freeloaders, you've already lost. Just because some isn't tipping. Doesn't mean they'll never tip.

I think it's more noticable now. The sight has gotten allot more popular. So it's more noticable now.

LOL no. What a... non-thinking thing to say ;)
Is this an example of you being primed and triggered from the other topic? Bring fresh energy to different topics.

But, like, totally, the free chat concept encourages both freeloading and tipping. The community model has its pluses and minuses. It drives a lot of traffic and interaction but you will almost always have a smaller pool of consistent tippers.

What's the etiquette for members to call other members out for non-tipping? It's the model's room so do not want to cross any boundaries there but how do models feel about members chivvying the room to participate more?
I know it sucks, but that's just how it is when you're waiting for a countdown completion rather than just take her to a group or private show (assuming the model offers those...some do not). When you tip X tokens towards a show countdown, you are hoping that it is a group effort, and that enough other members will pitch in to make it happen. So there is the risk that it won't even happen.

Or you can be like okay, fuck waiting around on these other dudes to help pitch in. I'm gonna ask to take her private instead.

A member putting other members on blast for not tipping is probably asking for trouble and drama. I mean, I could see if it was some annoying, demanding member saying something like "Dis boring. Wen u gon use dat big cok dats sittin on da bed?"

I can't speak for other models, but I can tell you that it is annoying as fuck when you have that one member (a regular chatter, but pretty much never tips) who blurts out things like "Yay! *The-name-of-model's-#1-reg* is here! Now we'll get to see her naked!" It's such an obnoxious, freeloader-ish thing to say. Plus, it's rude and entitled for a non-tipper to just assume that a regular will just tip the entire amount to get her naked. What if that regular wasn't staying long, and was just there for a quick visit to say hey and tip once for something (or "just because")? Then that "Yay, #1 regular is here, and he'll get her naked!" remark from the freeloader just made shit a bit uncomfortable.

I get annoyed for the tipping members. I don't have high goals, but even then, there can be 20 grey members that don't talk, another 25 that will groan about how hot my body is or something, 10 people with tokens that don't tip and don't talk, and 2 members that fund the entire show. It seems just so incredibly rude to let two or one person fund the entire show for the hopes of getting your rocks off. It makes me want to start password protected shows and say fuck it to people that contribute nothing and freeload on other people's hard earned money.

So I consider it extremely bad form if someone is the room for over an hour without tipping, double if they aren't talking. I don't care if they don't have money or whatever, tokens aren't such a steep buy. It seems super rude for other people to fund an entire show while 10+ people watch for free. :dead: I personally mute/block any non-paying member that gets too "I want to see this" or "Wow so hot show more" kind of a deal. I'd prefer it was me telling them to be quiet, but if a member wants to let me know that it bothers them, thumbs up lemme know.
Hey, I use the multi goal app on Chaturbate. There's an inbuilt function where you can set it so that only people who tipped x amount of tokens during the show can see the final goal, anyone else who wants to see it will have to tip an amount determined by you. It will increase your revenue in a lot of cases as some people simply wont pay as they think they'll get it for free.
