Understanding Party Chat and Gold Chat
These 2 types of shows are pretty confusing and there is no clear explanation found on the FAQ page regarding these shows. I’d like to suggest to the site to offer some quick explanation (yea yea, I know users may have gotten some mail update, but give me a break – no one reads these), but for now I will take this task upon me and give you a quick review on each.
Party Chat is really just a mode, which is part of free chat. It allows all users to see the list of other members who are on the chat room, as well as to see each other’s messages. This is I guess what makes it into a Party, but if you are shy and don’t like to be noticed, then maybe this is not the best option for you.
Any livecam model that offers this option is tagged by a yellow "Party Chat" sign. You can easily find all the performers that have this option by clicking on the Features link at the upper part of the video chat page and then pick Party Chat.
Gold Show is a special type of group show. Any member who wants to reserve a spot in the gold show needs to agree to send around 10-15 gold (around the same number in dollars) and when the goal is reached, the show begins. There are the 2 counters, one stating how much "gold" was raised (enough users need to contribute Gold for a show to begin) and a time countdown counter. If the goal is not reached by the end of the countdown, users are not charged.
The biggest advantage of the Gold show is cost: It goes for as low as $1 minute, which is cheaper than any other adult webcam show. The biggest disadvantage is the fact that you cannot rate it, so it's hard to assess which model offers good value for this deal price.
Maybe it's just me, but I think that since the redesign there are less hosts offering Gold, but maybe that's just because of the new layout. In any event, you can easily recognize a webcam model that offers a Gold show through the icon on her videochat picture, right on the main page.

Streamate White Labels
Recently we have been approached by several users that wondered why we do not review some well-known webcam sites. Since many of the adult webcam sites in question are basically white-labels of Streamate.com, we decided to clarify this topic once and for all.
Streamate is quite unique in the live cam industry because it offers quite a few white-label websites. By "White Label" we mean additional live cam sites that are almost identical to Streamate.com. They have exactly the same chat rooms and hosts, but run under another name and with their own design. There is no difference between the sites other than the layout and URL. In fact any payment you make on any of these websites will appear in your billing under Streamate.com.
Since the white label Streamate sites are identical, there is really no reason to review them separately. However, since some of these white labels are pretty successful, we decided to list them here for you to know.
Pros and Cons
The new Streamate design adds a lot to the site's new appeal, but it's far from being its only advantage. This webcam chat arena is fun, friendly and complication-free, and users evidently love it because they keep coming back for more. There's a great variety of features, excellent discounts and the live shows are spectacular. The fact that the site offers an exact free show schedule and a handy FAQ demonstrates that it really sees users' needs and issues and makes sure they could find what they want.
The site doesn’t have as many special features as some of the other sites which doesn’t take away from the quality of the hosts but it would have been nice to have some more options for special discount rates and interesting promotions. It always makes visiting a cam chat site a little bit more fun when there are fun contests or short-time-only promos going on.
Streamate.com has a very wide selection of hosts in numerous categories, which are easy to locate thanks to simple and easy-to-read navigating tools on the site. Hosts are friendly and energetic and always give top quality shows. Plus the HD quality cams that most of the performs have on the site make watching a live chat here a very pleasurable experience. I found the site to be worthwhile and not too steep with the prices.
