  1. Great suggestion! In addition, I would like to re-make a suggestion I made a few years ago. As we have the Bug Tracker here on forum, it's possible to create a Suggestions Tracker using the same system. I think it would be a much more organized section than just the discussion forum we currently have. With a Suggestions Tracker, all suggestions can be categorized, filtered and managed in a more practical and professional way, making users ideas easier to be heard, polished and worked on. The same categories that are in Bug Tracker can be implemented in the Suggestions Tracker, only the Status Definitions would change. It would look +/- like this: What you guys think?

  2. Hello laddies, As I said in another post, I wanted to propose a suggestion, for volunteers/contributors to start a discussion with the admin about "feedback" so that users' opinions can be heard, and we'll know what they think, what can improve, how to improve etc. This would help xat make decisions about the next steps to be taken, rather than just a few opinions. Google Forms can be used for it. I've been looking for it, and it looks that xat has never did anything like that. It would be a new way of listening to users, giving them a voice. Some questions you can use: ID/username What do you think about the current support? What do you think about the xat powers? Do you think they are being released very often? Do you would like to see a new power on xat? If yes, what would it be? Do you feel like your suggestions are being heard? If not, why? ... Tips: Ask the questions objectively so that all users can answer (multiple choices/writing). Make the results transparent, it's also important for users to know what others think. Do not keep them secret. Don't let it be just a feedback form, consider the suggestions, listen to them. Currently in the Suggestions subforum there are many suggestions, but few of them are considered. Ask help chats main owners to promote this between their staff/scroller, so more people will know about its existance and give true their opinion. Contact: More replies from volunteers, admins and smiley makers on the suggestions. This will show to users that they are being heard. It's not good to have the Suggestions subforum and a specific chat for that if they have the feeling of not being heard, it brings discouragement. By hearing to them, you promote discussions on the subject, understand the users' views, etc.

  3. I love the creativity of the Suggestions Tracker idea @Guinho, as it could help motivate the smiley makers and xat developers to implement as many ideas as possible (rather than just having loads as "Pending" or "Under Review"), and it provides more organisation to handling suggestions, as you say. But it might also be unrealistic for admins, smiley makers and xat developers to review and decide on every single suggestion posted by users there. They're the ones who ultimately make the final decisions on these things, and we can't decide on their behalf what will or won't be added, unless it's a really obvious rejection. It might be too time-consuming. Regarding Feedback chat, we already have a Google Form within the bot's autowelcome message, for users to provide any piece of constructive feedback or suggestion they have, anytime they like, even when staff are offline. I check every response posted, and we discuss the serious ones in monthly staff meetings. Here's the form we currently use: https://forms.gle/f57G8SFbQLSM1ybY8. On the current Google Form, our strategy is to ask for suggestions rather than just opinions like "What do you think about XYZ", because then we're going deeper and looking to fix and improve something. But maybe that's something we could do differently.

  4. 2006 from an embedded Webkinz site. Charlie, Gizzy, Sooky, and a few others, came with me from there to here, as well. This webkinz site was also shown to Admins, showing how we could trade virtual powers and the profit in it.

  5. Same as @Kyle, Club Penguin trackers introduced me to the site, in 2009. Found official chats in 2012 when I started going to Doodlerace chat. I would get banned every day for arguing with Spell about the flood rule. Then I worked my way up to main owner and removed the flood rule. I win, Spell!

  6. Feedback chat exists with almost 0 visits unless its promoted. Regarding polls, I agree with you... when there is a major split in views a poll can determine the decision, especially in topics such as that one about( influencers/verification system/celebrity pawn... or whatever that was). I rather see the polls in the forum though.

  7. 2008/2009 - Started in a weird chat room embedded on a website, then I found mosa3adeh in 2011, and I became an owner in the first few months. Later in 2013 I became the main owner, also in the same year I became one of the first wiki translators in xat, by Cyan. Today I'm still having the pleasure to assist my community, while maintaining the same positions.

  8. This idea is very special because it will bring the administrator closer to the public and users directly. I agree with everything you've written, but a "subforum" of suggestions could be made in the suggestions tab itself, so it would be a steerable link. The administrator sees everything but an approximation more visible and frequent would be very important, it would bring much more participation from the users. This participation and response to suggestions could have a date in the week/month or something like that and thus eliminate the need to have full frequency. GoogleForms is a simple and interesting option, but xat could develop its own feedback page similar to GoogleForms, thus bringing authenticity and innovation. I look forward to this suggestion being well received by the team.

  10. During 2008/2009, i was a hard die fan of Runescape and i followed some of those famous Runescape youtubers and they suggested to communicate their fans on xat so that it will be easier for them. Too bad all of them left xat, and guess what, till now i am addicted to xat lol. Never regret the choice that i have made xd

  12. Get ready for the event you won't want to miss! Help prom is coming up fast! Grab a date or your xat BFF and head over to xat.com/Help on Friday, June 18th @8pm EST/5pm PST. Note: Bringing a date or someone to be your pair is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If you don't have a pair on the night of the event, you will be matched with someone who also doesn't have a pair. 1. DRESS-UP All attendees are encouraged to "dress-up". This can be anything from having a special avatar, name and/or colour theme. You can be anything from a game or anime character, a celebrity or even a fruit - let your imagination be free! It's also up to you whether you want to match with your pair (ie. peanut butter and jelly, Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber etc). Please ensure your "costume" is appropriate (obviously). 2. ITINERARY #1: Blue Carpet - Every attendee will be asked to take a "selfie" (screenshot) of their outfit/costume on the Help Blue Carpet and post it in this thread. The first 30 users to participate in the Blue Carpet selfie event will win 100 xats. DO NOT EVEN THINK OF USING MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS! #2: Celebrity Guess Who - You will be given close-up images of a celebrity from a red carpet event and will have to guess who it is. First user to guess correctly will win xats. Win 1, Skip 2 - 20 questions! #3: Help Prom Queen and King Competition - Every user who wishes to be either prom queen or king will be asked to give a 45 second speech about their costume/outfit, introduce themselves/their character and explain why they'd like to be prom king or queen. Based on the judges scores on costume uniqueness, audience score, speech delivery and relevance, 2 users will then be selected to be the prom queen or king and win 250 xats. #4: Amazing Race - Communication is key in this game! You and your pair will compete together to try and be the fastest pair to finish a list of challenges around xat. The 1st and 2nd place pairs will win xats! #5: Four in a Row Tournament - The tournament will start with playing your pair in a best of 5 game of four in a row. The tournament will continue and the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th place winners will win xats! We hope to see you (and your pair) there! It will surely be a night to remember!

  13. My idea about Suggestions wasn't to replace the way the suggestion system currently works (Feedback chat, Suggestions forum etc). But after reading @Guinho's idea, I think it'd be the best alternative. In the past there was something like this, xat vote (xat.com/vote - check here) and it looks like it was better than now. I want to leave an example of how it'd work: User post a suggestion. Other users post their opinions about the suggestion. In 7-10 days the forum moderation wil close the "Suggestion" and on the end of the month will be sent a list of all suggestions and their percent of approval/rejection to admins. Admins choose what'll be approved/rejected and forum moderation update the "Suggestion status". That's easy! My idea about Google Form is for xat to create surveys, to see how things are going i.e support, html5 development, powers release etc. These questions will be answered by users, and I'm sure this will help a lot in what next steps xat should take. "The best way to prove you value your customers is to listen to them."

  15. That's a great idea. I really hope admins could pay more attention to the community and work with them so that they could improve the site. I've noticed that there are a lot of the communities here actually do have great ideas and hoping it could improve the site if given the chance. Community voice matters too

  17. Can I apply for the pawn since I helped influence the idea to make virtual powers. You can "buy" subscribers on any platform as well. I also was in a well known cabbage patch commercial long ago. I also owned a site that had over 1M followers that was based off xat. I also still recall Ashley Leggats manager asking me to leave because I received more attention than she did. I think I have influenced xat alot through the years. For those that really do not know...this is all sarcasm. I am just making a point for what I feel is the greater good. When I, as a former volunteer, wanted a cyan pawn, it was made for me, but never given to me. When you, as Admin needed a gift to give to Ashley, you came to me and asked if I minded. I said sure go ahead. I do not understand why volunteers or anyone needs special recognition of a pawn now either. Karls points also fit best. You in past have ALWAYS taken a stand resellers are not official. Giving them a pawn, changes that. Giving volunteers a pawn is a slap in the face to those before them, as well as those around them, such as contributors, wiki editors, etc who contribute to xat on a daily basis.
