  6. @Solange I present to you, the 95% complete wiki article! https://util.xat.com/wiki/index.php?title=Superblastban Special thanks to Adeis, Tito1, and DJCrazy for helping me capture all of the gifs and test out the new power. (They assigned powers to my chat and Adeis was my ban-dummy). Thanks to Sanic for teaching me how to cut down the size of a gif! I'm missing one piece of information currently: With all of the blast powers, you can use the macro "$blastban=2" to set your preference on which set of animations you wanted to use. It seems as if "$superblastban=3" isn't functioning; it's either under a different name, or hasn't been created yet. Thanks for your patience.

  7. The power of this week is SUPERBLASTBAN. This power allows you to use some new cool Blastbans. Blastban is required for Superblastban to function. You only need ONE Blastban power to unlock the animations. The more Superblastban powers assigned, the more animations you unlock. This is how it will work: 1 Superblastban assigned: Animation level 1: (Bat, frying pan, and ban hammer). 2 Superblastban assigned: Animation level 2: (Ton, anvil, and rock smash animations). 4 Superblastban assigned: Animation level 3: (Freeze and flame animations). 8 Superblastban assigned: Animation level 4: (Godblast animation).

  9. Not sure why that is worded that way? He may of started it...but he led the community to speak their minds and let their voices be heard. To me the later, was more the milestone. With contributors leaving...we don't see it worded as contributors leaving because Maverick was added. Just an observation. Sorry if this offends.

  13. Introduction Welcome to the "Community Finding Solutions" thread. I will go into brief detail about the purpose of this thread, and then explain in more detail later what this encompasses. The point of this thread is to suggest problems you think xat has currently, and suggest fixes / solutions to these problems in a civil peaceful environment. Does xat have problems? Judging based on multiple different threads and posts by the users of xat, I would say there are quite a few problems that have yet to be solved. I won't get into the specific issues that xat has currently, as you, the community, can name some of these issues and explain why they are in fact issues or not. Diversity of opinion and views is what I am looking for. I want to know why you might think something is a problem, and explain how exactly it impacts xat. Pointing out problems and suggesting solutions If you believe that xat has a problem, I urge you to express your opinion here. That being said, however, I do not want users to simply complain about xat problems and not think of ways to fix or resolve them. If you are going to talk about something being an issue with xat, I would prefer that you also think of a way to fix the said problem. Merely complaining about something is not going to fix it. Finding potential solutions to problems has a greater chance of being successful than just being negative with no desire to help fix the problem. I'll just get right to the fact here that most of you are thinking as you may be reading this, or before even opening this thread. You probably believe the admin won't do anything with your suggestions and will just ignore you. You might think that volunteers don't see your complaints, or just don't care. I want to tell you that this is not correct. Although, the admin may not give his opinion or act on suggested solutions, that does not mean that what you suggest here is meaningless. Our past thread got the attention of the volunteers which proves the point that your voice will be heard one way or another. So don't have a negative mentality and just shoot the idea of suggesting improvements / fixes for xat down. How to point out problems and suggest solutions (PROPERLY) This is a very important factor to keep in mind. How you suggest solutions / fixes to problems on here needs to be done in a very careful and well thought out manner. We do not want posts that target or attack volunteers, the admin, or any specific person or persons. I will make this very clear because if you do not abide by this standard your posts are subject to be hidden or the thread deleted entirely for being what constitutes as "drama." We do NOT want people being targeted, insulted, or ridiculed. We want a peaceful, civil environment where you, the community, can voice your opinion on xats problems. I want to suggest that this thread have an appointed moderator to watch over and keep the thread going in the right direction and not detour into drama. This is extremely vital to comprehend and follow. Your voice This is your thread where your voice can be expressed and heard. Do not let anyone make you feel like what you say here will not be acknowledged or that your opinion is "poor" or "bias" We all have right to our opinions and views, (assuming they are not violating what I said above.) Your voice does have the power to change things on xat. Some areas may not be changed whatsoever, and others may very well be changed based on what you voice here. I strongly believe this otherwise I wouldn't be wasting my time opening this thread. I believe, that if the community comes up with viable, rational, and realistic solutions, these have a strong potential to be heard and maybe even implemented by the admin of xat. It just depends on how you explain a problem, and what you propose as a solution for said problem. You have to take into account that if the admin has not listened to you, or you haven't had your solutions implemented that they may not be possible, or that the explanation of the solution just isn't clear enough or realistic enough. I could see this being a factor for why the admin may not have taken action on certain issues the community has. I am not going to blame him if he does not understand the solutions, or they just aren't possible. I also want you to take any posts that might go contrary to what you see as a fix for a problem positively. Learn to see both sides of the coin. Someone may have valid and rational reasons for disagreeing with you. This is perfectly okay and I encourage difference of opinion and view. If we all just agreed on everything, I can imagine xat would fall into disarray very quickly. Thank You I want to thank each and every one of you that decides to read this thread and post here. Your voice is what I want to see. I believe you have the power to potentially have a voice in changing xat for the better. (If you come up with realistic solutions, I would be more than willing to propose these to the admin myself.) Let's all work together to make xat a great and better place for everyone. Enough with the side taking. Let's work together on this.

  14. Hello, it's easy, you have to answer this question, how many answers do you want, and how much you want to write, I'll read everything! I'm going to bed now, but I promise I'll write the text, and I'll explain what I'll do if I'm the administrator (I do not want to say that the administrator is bad, it's just a discussion to see who's going to handle if he's a manager, that is, what changes he does, or what he can bring to xat) What changes can you make? // What new can you bring to xat? many other questions you have to answer, you already know what questions the world demands often, so you answer, what do you do if you are Administrator?! xD Create a positive and creative response.

  19. Tonight at 10:30 PM CET I will put 4,000 xats into a gamebot and let people compete for the prizes. Event is pretty short notice as it was decided earlier. There is an active poll at the chat to decide which games will be played (Picking 2) options are: Spacewar | Matchrace | Doodlerace | Snakerace. Could start 30 - 60 minutes later if some people can't make it for 10:30. See here for event start: https://greenwichmeantime.com/time-gadgets/event-time/Christmas Games/1514151000/game/ It all takes places @ SKVLL

  30. Yes, but... will it work if we have only 1 Blastban power assigned then? Will we need to assign an exact quantity of superblastban powers to unlock animations?(as we need to do with Blastban, Blaspro, etc...) In my opinion, the information isn't clear... it should be pointed on the wiki article of the power. For example, 'You only need to assign 1 Superblastban power to your chat, then all animations will be unlocked'. Don't you think that?

  44. Does xat have problems? Yes. xat does have a lot of problems and they are fixable in their own ways. First and foremost issue on xat is the tickets system, then follows, HTML5 and mobile. To describe each one is very easy, but ARE the changes going to be happening anytime soon? That answer is clear as day. In the past couple months, there were multiple threads and post being made on the volunteers activity on xat's forum. Users are complaining about how their tickets are not being answered and there's a huge time gap for those tickets; three months, two months, four months and it goes on. I don't think anyone should be dealing with that, but as a former volunteer I do understand from a volunteers perspective that some users do exaggerate their wait time. [Encountered this a couple times in the past]. That does place a bad name on the group when those exaggerating users complain on chats and it can be tough to deal with sometimes. BUT! - - - - This does not sum up what's been going on recently. It seems as if those inactive volunteers are on a strike to not answering tickets for whatever reasons. Perhaps there's personal reasons behind it all, school, work, life, family and / or friends. We all have a life to lives too and personal things to do, but those volunteers were selected by other volunteers to help smooth out the system, but just take a look at it now - slow, inactive volunteers and no one is getting their required help. Yadadaha - trust blahblahblah, etc etc. No one needs divine trust to help a community out and show what they are capable of doing. However, the rank volunteer requires a certain amount of trust from the admins and a certain amount from volunteers! But if you're hated by volunteers, then expect no recognition whatsoever. If you as a volunteer are not willing to accept changes and help the community out, then you're just doing nothing but watching the community fall and wasting your own time as a "volunteer" who holds that rank. I know who those individuals are and they know who they are. The community can probably guess as well. There's multiple solutions to this, but the easy one is to allow the most active volunteers to gain permissions to help the slackers out. That way this helps fixes the community ticket system in various ways with satisfying users. I bring this up a lot [lost track], but removing the inactive volunteers is a solution to help the admins and volunteers pick new volunteers to help out the community. I do know that the inactive volunteers were brought to the admins and some of it was solved, but you can always have the other "higher" ranking volunteers help to clean up as they have more influence. Users complaining left and right about the current volunteer system and how some of their tickets aren't getting answer seems to be bothersome, but that should say something to some volunteers that they have things to do. I do understand some tickets take longer than others, but for a ticket that takes three to four months is outrageous. At least consider taking an hour out of your day to help a user with their ticket. It doesn't take more than 20-30 minutes to help someone solve an issue. That would most certainly be helpful to that user and you repeat it every day to clear out the delays. HTML and Mobile! Next thing I'd like to discuss is HTML5 and xat's mobile app. I know some of you have waited years, or months for this happen and it's here. Now that it's here it has multiple flaws which doesn't look too good for the community. Some of us enjoy these features and some of us don't and that's totally fine. I can assure that I myself put in multiple time in my day with Sloom and La to make these features best as possible. We don't stop looking into issues and we continue to work on the most challenging issues first ahead of us, then work our way down to user issues and request. We're not here to watch this site fall into shambles due to others. I made this post sound "very high" and "mighty", but I can tell you things do get better for these features as time goes on. Powers! I enjoy seeing powers being released on xat every week, and I also enjoy testing function powers. However, one thing I do not enjoy about is the fact that powers get released weekly. I would like to see powers get released every two weeks which allows the smiley makers to put more time into their work, review it more than once and is satisfy with their work. It also takes off a bit pressure on them - "I need to finish this for this day", "I need to do this now, now." Etc, etc. With that kind of pressure, there's bound to be someone messing up somewhere. That's no good. Solution: I propose a two weeks wait in releasing new powers. Forums and Chats! The forum is where we can help others, give advice and express what is wrong with the community, but lately that's not been the case with some comments on threads. Those post are either deleted, or made a mockery of by some individuals. That's really not appropriate to do, but keeping the forum as professional as possible should be a top priority and that's not being done. This may answers some of your concerns then, "this is why mods or vols delete those comments to keep those threads professional as possible". So you think censoring the community is professional? It will just stir the pot and let a storm rain down upon you. Simple as that. The solution to this is simple: Let the community speak their mind and not censoring every single post that offends you and take the criticism as a way to improve yourself. Next one is chats. There used to be a lot of promoted chats on xat, but ever since people lost their accounts [WHICH HOLDS THEIR XATS TO PROMOTE THEIR CHAT] and saw promotions are dying, they stopped promoting. It also goes to the fact that some individuals abuse their power for minor things on promotion now, and that worries people to promote their chats. No one would promote their chat IF they have to constantly live in fear of being delisted for small things. I don't know if there's a solution to this or not. Conclusion! Things aren't sunshine and rainbows in the xat world - with some volunteers either putting each other down, fighting with the community saying this isn't true, that isn't true, backstabbing each other and trying to get ahead grand schemes of things - which brings mayhem to the community. That's enough right there for ticket delays, community arguments and people bashing each other left and right. Do I believe things would get changed? My answer is leaning more to a no than a yes at this point. Would things get done at this point even if in requires admins attention? No. Why? Because some of those individuals are not open to changes and would tell the admins not to worry and being bias is playing a role there. I've also noticed the admins get brought up a lot in some post as well as it's their "fault". It's not their fault if said volunteers are not opened to changes. So how can you blame someone for something when they would just bickered at for pointless reasons? Because he didn't take charge? Read what I previously said above this. Thanks for reading this long post and this would probably be my last response to threads like this, or if someone wants me to answer any questions.

  45. CHATS Firstly I'd like to point out that official chats are poorly managed. Due to the nature of this thread and it's moderators I am not at liberty to openly discuss why I feel this way. Can do outside of the forums for those curious though → /f1337873972. Solution here is as simple as it seems. Enforce chatbox rules for everyone including staff members and don't ignore user reports. If you feel the report is weak, let the reporter know. Use arguments. This part is less personal but I still feel like it's attached to a bigger issue that I'll bring up later on; chatboxes are being used as target practice. Before this year I'd rarely see a chat get permanently delisted and if that did come up, it's usually because said chat had heavily inappropriate content displayed. Now however, I see chats like Ennui get permanently delisted because a volunteer thinks a user posted inappropriate content without double checking the link that was posted. As a solution I suggest we ease up on the power tripping and go back to the basics. Volunteers are not babysitters in charge of children. If a chatbox is reported in a ticket you need to make sure the user has gone to the chat's rightful owner to sort the issue first - I have seen malicious users go on toons to post inappropriate content then immediately report it in a ticket playing victim. Once you're sure the chat owner knows what took place and refuses to do anything about it then you should step in. Not before. Here we have a sub-section of the previous part with delists, I noticed chats with "inappropriate ban reasons" are being given 7 day delists off promotion as well. Why? Chat is off promotion and xat is supposed to be used by a mature audience. Nobody promotes chats anymore because users were run off to the point where promotions aren't worth it anymore and they'd rather be themselves elsewhere without moderating every word/action, why disturb non promoted chats now? Bored? Solution here would be to just ignore it? God knows I've reported chats in the past when I used to be banned and the reason was just "n****r". Nothing ever happened, now all of a sudden it's a deadly sin whenever someone feels it's convenient and needs a reason to delist just for the sake of delisting. Speaking of promotion; Who knows there might be a miracle and people start using xat again after their fears of being abused is dismissed and will want to promote their chat. I suggested this before (and was ignored as usual) but it would be nice to have a little 10 question quiz for a user to complete the first time they try to promote and said user can only promote once they've scored an 80% or more on the test, showing that they are a proper chat owner and know enough of the rules to not get themselves delisted instantly. Yes I've seen some horrible things on promotion before. And-Surprise-Nothing-Was-Done-Even-Though-I-Reported. USERS & ACCOUNTS xat has become a breeding ground for trolls and jokers who believe they can say anything they want and get away with it. The official word on this is "xat does not get involved in user disputes" but xat gets heavily involved in user disputes either way. Pick a side. Either you take responsibility or you don't. If you do, I have a perfect solution to these trolls who disrupt the use of xat: 1-14 day gag similar to other games and their mute system. Prevent said users from harassing the main chat by only allowing them to speak in private chat to users who have them added. This shouldn't be too hard to implement since gagging is already a feature of xat, you'd just need to make it apply to every chat they connect to. When did xat move from torching to deleting? The system seems to be in place solely to be used as a griefing mechanism. Purging someone's account that they've spent money or time on does absolutely nothing. If the user is a repeat offender, they'll register a new account or worse, they'll stay on a toon ID and carry on. If the user was attached to their belongings they'll be left with a horrible taste in their mouthes against xat as a whole and be more inclined to leave, potentially encouraging other friends to leave aswell. Using the example of games once again: when you violate a rule; depending on the severity of the offense you're given a TEMPORARY BAN which can range from a day to a year. If you've been caught cheating or abusing the game's systems to gain an unfair advantage then and only then is your account lost. The system makes sense. The system is based on logic. The system works. As a solution I'd like to refer to a previous one I brought up with the gag system for trolls ranging from 1 day to 14 days. Repeat offenders can then start receiving bans. Extreme cases like scamming, "doubling powers", doxing, hacking etc can be bundled under a temporary to permanent ban. The action needs to be proportionate to the offense, I've seen my fair share of people losing accounts for saying "kys" one time in one chat to one user when a simple 24h ban from said chat would suffice. Point to my previous point again, volunteers are not babysitting children, you do not need to involve yourselves in every little fight you come across. On the flip side there are users who do good for the community and they're paid with insults to the face. We've already seen the designers of xat ragequit because they ran out of patience for this mess. Designers lack any sort of support and were forced to create their own private militia through xat.com/Graphics by banning people from entering contests on their forum that the host could easily choose to ignore or not. I've been permanently banned from the xat forums before for opening a thread that people agreed with that was in no way inappropriate or causing drama about an image host concern. Once again I will share information on this event off of the forums for those needing to know. Solution here once again is simple, listen to suggestions. I remember posting multiple suggestions on the old forum that a few old volunteers found really interesting: Allow chat owners to edit the opacity of the chat's transparent boxes. Allow chat owners to grant a designer rank to people letting them edit the chat's visual style without having access to main owner powers or chat password. Once again, nothing ever happened even though they were solid and well thought out with examples. If a suggestion is turned down, it would be nice to inform the user with a simple reason as to why. TICKETS Lot of contributors & forum staff were quick to point out that the "active" volunteers can't be removed as they're not lazy, their department is just delayed and the "inactive" ones barely have any tickets to answer hence them being "inactive". The solution is so painfully obvious that it shouldn't even need to be said. Let some of those volunteers handle the delayed departments temporarily, have them trained and formed so they can lend a helping hand otherwise hire active staff experienced with dealing with tickets I'm sure you can find millions (ok let's be realistic, dozens or less now) on xat with real life qualifications if you just asked rather than allowing a small circle of friends to suggest their own friends to help them and furthering the "favoritism" rumors. FORUMS I've quit using the forums because the forum moderators used to be thought cops destroying any post they don't agree with. This is largely still the case. A forum is a place of expression where messages are meant to be permanent for all to see and be able to read on their own time. Wanting to prevent inappropriate discussions is okay. Wanting to prevent fights between users is completely understandable. Censoring posts that people agree with? No. Making posts vanish for no reason at all? Definitely not. Force forum moderators to have a valid reasoning for deleting a post and have an unbiased user decide if the reasoning is right or not to prevent the usual "You're my friend, I trust you, do w/e". GENERAL Most of my concerns here mention the single fact that xat has actively become more aggresive with it's rule enforcing towards users. Reports against users used to be "We don't get involved", scammers are roaming free or getting their account transfer blocked but petty drama destroys you. The enforcing is not only extremely aggresive but also inconsistent. If aggresivity is your choice then communicate. Update your terms, specify clear rules and guidelines to follow. None of that broad "no trolling" nonsense that allows volunteers to hide behind empty reasons for their actions. Saved the best for last. xat is in desperate need of a stable communication flow between the community and the developpers. Install a community manager. Look no further than Mike too (He's literally the only person trying to look out for users now that Jamesey is gone. Muffins does what he can but is limited). Current projects, user concerns, suggestions keep him posted on what's coming to xat, feel free to keep some things a surprise but communication is generally positive. Wake up the twitter account, use it for things other than a vague sentence everytime a power is being released. Interact with your users. That is all. No censor pls.
