Mike, I recommend you working on your own software than posting these totally idiotic stuff. Would do A LOT more good to you, I promise.
(This review as all other negative reviews here was posted by Michael Pennington, a famous scam artist from Thailand, who owned Wazzum (you can google Michael Pennington Wazzum) and now owns WPDating, a script which is a total waste of money because no professional dating or social site in the world has been build upon WordPress, LOL This way, “harming” Chameleon and creating bad reviews he thinks someone will run to his site and buy WPDating, the very same method he used when he had Wazzum, so where is Wazzum now? WPDating will go the same road if Mike continues using these strange promotional method ;-).
Just to illustrate the point, just one post out of THOUSANDS:
This fraudster (aka Michael Pennington and probably many other names) is now calling himself Michael Allen and doing business as Datingsolutions as well as using MyAllenMedia as his company name.
His former websites included wazzum–mythailife–mythaicupid and more.
I am a former victim of his and I know there are many more of you out there. I hope we will all catch up to him one day soon and get some justice for what he has done.
There are numbers on his website now, but I doubt anybody will ever be able to reach him by phone. He says the company is an LLC which may leave a trace if it really does exist, which is doubtful based on his past.
You may be wondering, how I know datingsolutions has become WPDating? Well, Mike Pennington says about it himself on his very website
“We are announcing the rebranding of Dating Solutions to WP Dating today. We thank all our customers of Dating Solutions and assure you that you will still remain as valued customers. You will still be able to receive the same or better level of products and support that you have been receiving.
Also, you will still be able to download the products that you have purchased with us in the past years based on the nature of your purchase. Nothing much has changed but the NAME itself!”
Oh yeah! 😀
I have read a few of the comments left by others and I realize most of you are pros and experts in web design. I am just a simple person, with no degree in computing, with a huge dream which is having a dating site and making it different in many ways from all the others out there. I have to confess I thought it would be impossible to achieve, and there were times I felt we would have to say “no more” and quit. But it was at that time, that the Chameleon Team (especially one of their team members, Albert) stepped in and have been our rock and supporting us ever since.
Let’s face it everyone, there are other places where after you give them your money, they turn their backs on you and I have read TERRIFYING reviews about them. But Chameleon, besides providing you with an AMAZING software, they also stand by you on and on!! They really want all of us to make it, people!
I have also read a few of you complaining about a few things that are not going quite right. To all of you, I feel the need to tell you that it is very rare to find, anywhere, a flawless software. I bet all of you, that even the $3,000 software is imperfect! Heck people! Life is imperfect! But the Chameleon team is the closest I have found to perfection. They are there for all of us; they do not abandon us and to me, that is PRICELESS! thanx Chameleon… thanx team….thanx Albert!
So, save your money until they get their act together .. it is stupid to wait for 3-4 months to get the license details sorted out, dont you think ? Go somewhere else with your buck, this site has many bad reviews on the net and there is a reason for it…
I think it’s funny that ChameleonSocial says that the negative posts are done by the competition when he himself is guilty of posting fake negative reviews about other dating software providers. The owner of ChameleonSocial.com is a thief and a liar. He got caught posting fake reviews all over the Internet and still completely denies it. He thinks that posting negative comments about other dating software providers will help his site sell more. He’s nortorious for doing this. His real name is Dmitry and not Frank. He is not in America but Armenia. He pretends to be in California but he is not. If you don’t believe me just pay a visit to his so called office. Oh and he’s a one man show. He doesn’t have a support staff. He is sitting at his computer in Armenia scamming people. So, if you value your money you will STAY AWAY from ChameleonSocial.com, aka, AbleDating or ABK-Soft.com. All the same software. Oh and Dmitry, you can deny this all you want but we know the truth. If you really want a better dating software app, check out SkaDate, WPDating, AdvanDate or others. They don’t do what this clown does.
Hello, please provide your order number so that we could investigate your case thoroughly. Without an order number, again, it is just a post from competition, as usual
I’ve been using Chameleon for about a month, and overall, pleased with the package. There are a few drawbacks that must be overcome.
Without an in-depth user manual, this software can be very confusing during initial setup. Learning the use of its many features comes down to trial and error. If the site administrator is confused, think of how the new users feel and how quickly they’ll move on in frustration.
Support tickets, at times, are confusing with short, non-verbose answers.
The following is an actual example:
My first post,
I’ve seen the check boxes, in the administrator cPanel, where I can assign specific users as moderators of photos and text. I’ve assigned three users this capability and when they login there is a “Moderator” link on their home page.
When they click on this link, they’re taken to a page with three buttons, “Moderator Photo”, “Moderator Essay” and “Save”. Clicking on any of these links, causes the page to refresh, but nothing else.
Realizing there was no new user to approve, I created a “test profile” waiting for approval, and again, nothing happens.
How do these three moderators use the assigned capabilities?
Please activate in menu “Main > Options > Site options”:
– The texts need to be checked
– The photos need to be checked
As I said in the first post; I’ve checked the boxes. Now, I want to know how to use this ability.
Please make sure that these options active in “Main > Options > Site options.
Are these “canned responses”? This is twice you’ve sent this type of reply and this is the third time I’ve said, “Yes, the boxes are checked.”
What I need to know is, “How do the moderators use the software to approve/disapprove photos or text?” A step-by-step would be great!
Member upload photo in profile or change text fields and these values appear on moderator page.
Thank you. I have tested it and understand how it works now.
This ticket can be closed.
As you can see, my third post expressed my frustration.
Next issue: As an administrator, I’ve rearranged the top navigation menu order, but an additional option should be: the ability to move menu items to a drop-down sub menu location. For instance, move “Groups” below the “Forums”.
If you’re thinking about buying this software, do yourself a favor and avoid it at all costs. There are so many issues that they just won’t fix. I tried to get my money back from their processor and they told me that they could do nothing for me. I just lost over $500 dollars with ChameleonSocial.
I guess I should have done the research first with a company that never answers the phone…
ChameleonSocial may look good but once you get it installed, it won’t work. If you can even get it installed.
Hello, please provide your order number so that we could investigate your case thorughly.
Sounds like a false review though.
Some of the features included in the top dating softwares has hidden charges! For example, restricted license use, installation support and mobile apps are features sold separately!
I think is tricky to know total price until one is financially commited to a product! Cost could run up to $1000!!
We do not have any hidden charges. Our dating software eMeeting is $249 and no other fees. The previous owner charged for support and upgrades. Since we bought this company a month ago we have changed that. You pay one time and never pay again and support and upgrades are free as long as you own your site.
Some dating software providers appear to be in America when they are not. That is what makes us different. We’re an American company IN America and we play by a different set of rules. Fair rules. We take customer support very seriously and a simple phone call will show you exactly that.
I am looking at the dating web site software–not getting good vibes from the reviews so far. I notice that you have just purchased this company and have indicated that things have changed. How can I be sure? I am a newbie at this, but all the more reason that I want some assurances that if I buy the software and I have problems with it, I will be helped until it is working the way it is advertised. Is there a money back, no questions asked refund within a certain period of time?
Please respond as I would like to get started right away on this project. Thanks.
Being here in the states we do things differently. A lot of dating software providers pretend to be in the states but they are not. You can call their phone numbers and quickly find out that they are not. We are here in the states and being here we play by a different set of rules. A happy customer is a repeat customer and they talk good things about the company. That’s how a business should be run. That’s how we run things. You call us and you get a response immediately or within a few minutes. We take customer service very seriously and when you become a customer you will find out why. I can sit here and try to sell you dating software all day but the reality is that if I don’t provide customer service or a quality product then it all fails and fails badly. Also know that there are dating software providers overseas that post fake slanderous reviews in hopes of black listing the company. Sure you can’t stop that but what you can do is provide a great product to people that want it and back it with great support. That’s what we do.
Each hosting site is different so you’re going to run into errors. This is the nature of the business. It’s how you fix it and how quickly you fix it that counts. That’s what we’re striving for.
While we just have bought this company we are also honoring existing customers too. In the two weeks we’ve had this company we’ve fielded tons of requests. We’re making sure they are resolved.
As for refunds, if your’e not happy then we’ll give you your money back within 10 days of the purchase. We want you to be happy. That’s just it.
If you want to experience the level of support we offer, just give us a call. Our number is on the site.
Thanks for your comment,
It’s easy to find the 5 best – out of, how many…. 6, or 7?
All 5 are crap, a waste of money and efforts. Having said that, one needs to understand that each one of them are “Premium” scripts.
Imagine! You buy a pair of shoes, then you need to fix the lining, the sole, the heel, … no, we’d just hand it back and get our money back. But these “Professional Programmers”?
They are still arrogant, on top of their crappy, badly hacked codes which they sell as “Best”. Yes, sure, best out of a hand full, everyone is the best.
VLD and Datingscript – both owned by the “best” software developing team, a ONE man team, is the worst out of all. His level of arrogance screams beyond everything, and is unforgivable. His support? What support? Arrogance, denial, and capability to just cutting you off, especially if you refuse to pay additional money to be treated by his arrogance? Thanks, but no!
There are people who invite for feedback, suggestions and bug reports, and then there are people with some rotten EGO. VLD and Datingscript “support” is certainly part of the latter category.
I’m trying to start my own dating site which script would you suggest?
