  2. Hello again everyone! It's me again with a really good idea for a power called Stingray. I love everything that belongs to the sea. Now, as you will see, more possible smiles are still needed, such as the angry, loving, sleepy, dancing, and many more that surely you will give me more ideas, even so the comments below are open, I think that if it comes to fruition this idea will be a good power. Thanks and see u later, Stingray lovers!

  4. Hi, I want to admit that I have been preparing myself since about June, 2020 (last year) in case I had the opportunity to be selected as xat.com/HTML5 Monthly Manager and I will share with you the preparations/plans I had in mind. Design Rewards for finding bugs Due to the name of the chat, I would set up a plan that would promote or incentivize users to help developers with improving/correcting the HTML5 version. Instead of doing a monthly contest like most of the Managers, rewards would be given to all the users who find problems (bugs) and report them on https://forum.xat.com/bug-tracker/ this way we would find some errors that we are not aware of and/or that some users simply decide not to share (because they see it as a waste of time). Recognizing Contributors in HTML5 Development My thought was not to be the only one to be recognized in that month and to take the bold step of recognizing the hard work of the users who have contributed the most reports on the Bug Traker Leaderboard. It would also include some notable users around the community to keep the chat 100% secure in all languages (most of them). Owners @xLaming with 58 reports (testing user). @Stif with 19 reports + HTML5 Special Thanks @Vevrok with 24 reports (testing user). Moderators (Leaderboard) @theFlower with 16 reports. @Daniel with 11 reports + Mobile Bug Busters Special Thanks @Blacky with 9 reports. @Bau with 8 reports. @Danny with 7 reports. @Samuel with 3 reports. @RobFerrari with 5 reports. @Page with 3 reports. Others Moderators (Notable users) @MasterChief (testing user) @xRavennn (testing user) @Elif(testing user) @Anjalinda @Maxo (testing user) @Nathy (testing user) @iSavage @DJFUNNY @xWolfx Testing Users This group of users will eventually examine all previously reported bugs to confirm them and make sure that those that have already been reported are still active or have been resolved. The bugs examined in the ''Powers'' category by the Testing Users will gain the previously reported power. Improvements in the chat. Assistance will be added ( in fact Feedback was planned to be added) as a shared chat / buddy chat. I hope this plan will inspire you, all users can have fun and at the same time help xat to progress in its development!

  5. As the train which we have built keeps going through its oriented path, many other folks help us to see new possibilities. This ever growing projection of changes is a dream persued by all the people involved in our project. It is no longer an individual ambition. The paths that we tend to follow are not solely from the development scheme that xat staff keeps pushing through with new frequent updates but also through the minds of those who help us to think of new ideas, as solutions to our problems, or to see bugs that could make the result less "effective" or, at sometimes, not effective at all. Those minds who help us bear the drama of the never-ending chat development also encourage us that stability and performance is just around the corner. Those are the ones who we are going to keep close, who needs us as much as we need them. The hunger for fixing trouble and the anxiety to see it fixed is a perfect combination, just like cola soda and sliced lemons, or hat and reghide powers. Finally, or actually, let's hope this to be a new beginning, we are here to announce @DiddyDoodat as the new monthly manager. Thanks for your effort on helping us. Thanks @Maxo for the amazing month. Your work and effort won't be forgotten. Thanks! 1st day of September, 2021. Cupim, LaFleur, Junior, & Sloom.

  10. Why don't you ask to do something different for the anniversary? People are tired of this type of event where only the same old users who have a lot of money invested benefit from it. It would be ideal to find some other type of event that motivates more users around xat to participate, reward them for having fun on such a special day and they will be able to see that the loyalty of the users is being recognized. Maybe one related to the forum that will bring more users to register here and be more informed about improvements/events or some other that will allow you to earn users like creating a referral for each new user registered this month on xat you can participate to win a random prize (or just earn 10 xats for each referral).

  11. Hello, We are doing a "rebrand" on OceanProject (aka xatbot.fr), and we're looking for an chat inner/outer. Soon we will have many updates on the site, bot, chat, staff etc. Well, in celebration of that, we wanted to start this contest with the participation of everyone. # Rules: It should be sea-themed, blue, white, cyan... At your discretion. You must create an outer and inner background. Optional: Button colors. On the outer background you need to create opaque (semi-transparent) box with some most used commands. Eg !price, !value, etc. You can use the sea or something related on the outer background. E.g: https://prnt.sc/1r8lw8b. It should contain "xatbot.fr" on the chat inner. You have one month (31 days) from this post date, after, after that date it will not be accepted. # Prizes: 1st place: 10.000 xats 2nd place: 2.000 xats 3rd place: 1.000 xats # Information: End date: 10/Oct/2021 Countdown: https://www.tickcounter.com/countdown/2735989/oceanproject-contest-ends-on Prize holder: @xLaming (myself) Donor: @Mister Judges: @xLaming & @Mister If you have any questions, send me a private message!

  12. From September 13th to September 19th, Trade will host a special event for the End of Summer. The prize pool is currently set at 45,000 xats and may increase depending on your donations. This event will be special as it will feature coupons. Coupons will be percentages rewards based on your trades. The objective of the event is to reward active traders of Trade. What is a coupon? Every day, a few users will be randomly selected to receive a coupon. A coupon is a percentage reduction of your trade. For example, if you purchased a power at 400 xats and receive a 25% coupon, you will be given 100 xats. The percentage can fluctate every day between 10% and 50%. How to participate? It is very simply, between September 13th and September 19th, all you need to do is to post a screenshot of your trade operations (what was exchanged, at what cost and your ID). You can submit as many trades as you want every day but you can, if you are very lucky, only win once every day. Restrictions You must NOT use a secondary account to increase your chances of winning. If you screenshot a trade you made between yourself and a secondary account of yours, you will be removed from the contest. Unless specified otherwise, you must NOT submit trades of epic powers. If you have any question before the start of the event, then post a comment below! If you want to donate xats, then send me a private message. I hope to see many of you trading at xat/Trade for the end of summer!

  18. Hey everyone, I am very happy you spread the word and many people have started to participate! As a reminder, please make sure to include your username and ID in your submission. If you don't, your submission cannot be verified and you will not win. For day 3, the 50% discount was kept! But due to many of you participating, the discount was reduced to 30% for day 4. Furthermore, not everyone will be winning this time Due to the huge amount of contestants, I cannot point out what transaction exactly received the discount but I am keep records on an excel file where Admin will be able to check everything was handled properly. Also please note we make sure everyone gets a part of the cake so if you have won a lot already, there are chances you win less the remaining days.

  19. A simple suggestion, in theory: Don't break Everypower with powers that haven't been released yet. I figure that Everypower goes based on the powers in the store; and since the new is technically in the store, although unreleased, it breaks everyone's Everypower. It's probably a fairly short time from when it's first in store to when it's released, but it's a bit of an annoyance when you can't currently buy the power to complete it again. I've noticed this a few times upon releases, and all in all it's not a huge deal; but if it could be changed to only break once the power is officially released, that'd be ideal imo.

  23. Please post only IDs that you know that you'll be able to bid for. If you don't have enough funds for the type of ID you're suggesting, then please, don't suggest. Ideally, we want IDs that people will bid for. Also, make sure that the ID you're suggesting does not exist. You can use this link https://xat.me/a?id= to find out if it's registered or not. For example, https://xat.me/a?id=1000 returns "charliechat" so the ID is registered. However, https://xat.me/a?id=1002 returns empty so it doesn't exist or is deleted. Thank you.

  33. The first hat of the pawn looks good and works, the second in my opinion I think they should give a little more paint since it has nothing to do with the image that appears on the wiki, it would be incredible if the colors of the pawn were more appreciated, right now you barely notice the colors of the pawn (hat # hl) that it should be something like that or am I wrong? @Mihay thank you for the work you do, and I'm sure things are not as easy as we see from the outside, so thank you. And add a little more paint to the pawn please xD

  36. You don't have to thank me @Maxo, you deserved it and the fact that you were selected as Monthly Manager just says I'm right! By the way, this background was made at the end of May 2020 so it is one year old, by that time the chat was called this. On the other hand I was informed that we would stop using the word ''HTML5'' (xat.wiki/HTML5) and it would be replaced simply by ''The new xat'' (xat.wiki/News), this decision is not even a year old, the last time we used (xat used) the above mentioned word in an official announcement was on December 8, 2020. I would love to have saved the editable one to rename/fix some mistakes and be able to donate it to the new chat

  37. I wouldn't want to water the fire, but we no longer use the term "HTML5" to define the new version of xat. It's just some information so you can correct your post and include the updated informations (like the actual group link which is not xat.com/html5 anymore). Otherwise, good luck.

If you try to cheat in any sort of way during the contest, you will be permanently removed from Trade contests. You can submit as many trade operations as you want every day! But you can only win once every day. For now, epic powers are not included in the contest.

  45. Do you enjoy hosting GameBot contests on xat and giving out xat prizes, but hate when prize distributions are delayed due to unregistered users winning the game? Well I propose a new idea! Unregistered / logged out users should be blocked from participating in GameBot games if a prize is set. Example: T Take Snakerace for example. You see in the above image how you cannot normally play the game if you don't have the power? I wish this would've been fixed by now! The same should apply to toons playing gameraces involving prizes. GameBot should private message them something like "You need to be registered to play." On their side, the game should stay at the home screen and stay there until the game has started without prizes, or until the user has logged into their account in time for the next game. This will apply when a gamerace has started with prizes, but a toon wants to try to win xats without logging into their account. Example: This is what everybody sees when they first open the Matchrace app. For toons wanting to play this game with a prizefund in gamebot, the game should not proceed past this screen for them, and as indicated in the first image, the GameBot should private message them something like "You need to be registered to play." While I am aware that another alternative would be having chat staff moderate games and distribute prizes themselves, this would save the hassle of having a human keep track of such events and prevent delays such as these. Example:
