How we use this site to stop paedophiles is very simple.
1. Register with Chatnannies simply by following the instructions on the
ChatNannies site Registration link.
2. On your personalised homepage you will have the choice to either monitor
rooms we suggest, or choose your own.You should go to a chatroom that you feel
is appropriate and simply hang around - not interacting - just absorbing the
environment, observing, and watching for suspicious behaviour. A full list of
'do and don`t' is available here
3. You should then return to Chatnannies where you 'submit feedback' for the
chatroom you just visited. The Chatnannies system calculates and applies a
rating to the chat room based on our combined findings.
Should you experience a particularly troubling chatroom or behaviour from a
particular user, you can mark the report you make as a 'warning'. This report
is automatically bought to one of the Chatnannies administrators attention for
urgent review or action, allowing them to check the situation out and as
necessary, report the problem to the relevant police authority for further
This circumstance was found to be rare however. With our vigilance, prevention
proves better than the cure.
4. All of this completed information can be found in the 'Statistics' tab,
allowing users to make informed decisions about chatrooms for their childrens
In addition to this, you can download Livenannie! for your own computer or your
school's computers, allowing only the chatrooms that have most recently been
deemed safe (and have the highest amount of monitoring performed) to be
accessed. This takes away the option from the child to visit chatrooms that are
unsafe, giving you utter peace of mind.
In addition to this, we also have our NannieBot which uses the most advanced
Artificial Intelligence ever built. Nanniebots behave like humans, sound like
humans, and report to ChatNannies as if they were human, but with one massive
difference - they never sleep. NannieBots self replicate so as you read this
there are already thousands of them watching over chatrooms. The only limit is
the processing power of the PCs and servers upon which the Nanniebots are
running...so with more funding we can have even more NannieBots and make
chatrooms even safer.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q. What happens if a paedophile registers on Chatnannies and attempts to fix
the data for a particular chatroom, upon which they reside?
A. There are two reasons why this would be ineffective: one, because the this
kind of behaviour is in the minority and so just one report or even ten, or a
hundred, will not sufficiently falsify the results against all those genuine
reports entered. And second, we are automatically alerted to such behaviour.
Q. This will never work! It relies on people spending their own time
A. Sadly, if everyone thought that way then this site wouldn't work! The
majority of people we surveyed however committed that spending a few minutes a
day policing chatrooms was a small price to pay for children's safety.
Q. How are you going to make chatrooms safe for children?
A. With a combination of human support (you, our ChatNannies) and our
Artificial Intelligence (NannieBots), we can do two things; 1. we can paint a
picture of the safe and unsafe chatrooms on the internet, thus directing our
children only to the safest rooms. 2. We can deter or even catch paedophiles in
the act and submit this evidence to the relevant authority for them to act. If
we are ever to make chatrooms 100% safe however we either need a LOT of
volunteers to be ChatNannies, or we need funding to continue development and
deployment of NannieBots, or both.
Q. How do I become a 'SuperNannie'??
A. SuperNannies are those ChatNannies that have proven their commitment by the
number of reports they have posted, the amount of chatrooms they have
'Nannied', and the reliability of their reports. We will come to you and offer
you the opportunity of becoming a 'SuperNannie' when we feel you are ready.
There is no limit to the number of 'SuperNannies' we will require. There are
extra responsibilites involved with being a SuperNannie however - it also means
that you can no longer submit reports on chatrooms, but it does mean you will
be reviewing other ChatNannies' reports for accuracy and reliability. Being a
SuperNannie also draws a small salary, in your local currency.
