  3. This probably comes from different users but I do not understand how at the same time one could criticize xat for: - relying on users' help rather than on employees (making the website partly community-run) ; - not listening to the community. I would also like to mention that the forum community is actually not representative of all xat communities (simply because of the language barrier or general lack of interest into the forum or the official chats). A lot of new chat changes were suggested by the community and implemented. A decent amount of new powers were suggested by the community. When a change is brought up, it NEVER is set in stone forever and Admin are always willing to revisit decisions. I don't know many xat competitors that could say the same, and this is without mentioning the abyssal differences in fundings between other competitors and xat. Sky verified pawn is a new change and it was said multiple times it would be revisited if the pawn doesn't meet the expectations. xat Admin have indeed read most of the community (fair in some cases) criticisms but now is time to wait and see whether that works. One cannot reasonably expect a whole website to bend under their concerns even before a change is implemented, especially on a free-to-use service. I don't think it's a fair criticism to say xat doesn't listen just because a new pawn goes through a handful negative opinions. PS: Yes, there are other fair concerns in other forum threads related to a few powers issues but this thread is on the verified pawn (at worse, this changes nothing for you if it goes through).

  13. Next version of the chat (1.55) will add a new pawn color. - celebrities: cyan pawn (#00FFFF) - influencers: sky pawn (#5ab9ed) Influencers are users who have notable space on other social network communities (and some xat volunteers) They must be popular enough in their own area, and it would be helpful if they hosted their own xat chatroom, or mentioned xat during their presence on other sites. Contributors will suggest new influencers. xat will look at each suggestion carefully to see if the person matches to our criteria - depending on their area of influence the numbers of followers won't matter as much as their activity and actions may count more. xat will make the final decision if the pawn gets to be added added or not. The pawn will be free (will not require days) - so it should NOT be lent to other users (don't share your account) For now other sky pawn users are ticket volunteers, developers, smileymakers and resellers who buy from xat. The pawn can be removed without warning or reason.

  15. At least in Brazil it's common for people to use 4k tvs on pc, because they are cheaper than monitors and offer better quality. So the solution for users is "buy a new monitor" really? Try to say this to any user "hey bro, if u want to use our social network u need to get a new monitor". That's crazy. And 4K support can be easily added to xat, since smilies are made in SWF and converted in PNG, any resolution can be used, it doesnt require hard coding. Again this is not a solution, if you're forcing any user to buy a new monitor they will simply quit, that's all. I agree to the idea of adding better support for larger screens, even in resolutions like 1080p xat is small, being necessary to zoom the page to read better, so losing image quality, and yes this will be useful, remember that even cheap phones are already using native 1080p. It's not wasting resources.

  17. There's a difference between listening to the general community's opinions and handing the keys to a select few to do whatever they want with few repercussions. I'm not trying to be overly negative in this thread; I think the idea has solid benefits and is worth trying as I've said, I just thought I'd point out a few potential risks and flaws. I'll have to take your word for it that the admins have heard the concerns and will be watching for abuse or areas to improve.

  22. This isn't true. Though they may be somewhat limited, they certainly can and do things that "normal helpers" cannot. (not just reply to tickets) I've personally been 'pro-indicator' in the past when it comes to volunteers and such. I never did, nor do I now, see an issue with it being clear who these users are. Being able to verify these users quickly is a useful tool in my opinion. I understand the concerns about the groups (vols, smiley makers, resellers etc) being essentially grouped into one. I don't think that part makes a ton of sense to me either, but it is more of a "verified" pawn so I can see the rationale behind it. I'm just spitballing here, but being able to distinguish one group from another is pretty important imo. For example: volunteers could have a "?" hat on their pawn, smiley makers have.. a smiley? resellers could have the trade logo or the xat "coins" smiley, developers have a monitor or something. No one outside of the groups would have access to these, so I think it would somewhat serve the same purpose, as well as distinguish who's what. Also, I had the same thought as Martin about when you hover over a user, it could say their role. Though, clearly, neither of these would be as obvious as a "verified" pawn. Ultimately, my thoughts haven't changed, that I don't think in-chat indicators is a bad idea. I think most people got stuck on the "influencer" wording, so they have an issue with it. Or they think a specific group shouldn't get it, etc. I don't care for the pawn specifically; but I think indicators, in general, make sense in more ways than not.

  23. 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.

  24. Wait haven't volunteers and other people with official titles on xat been against special indications on the chat for the past 10+ years? Just out of curiosity, have any influencers who have "notable space on other social network communities" approached xat recently? Who is this pawn really for? Lmao

  28. Header background looks dark gray now, it's better than before, not necessarily everything has to be blue just because xat is blue, a dark theme is generally focused on being minimalist and less straining on the eyes. In dark 2 some things are still missing: 1. Buttons would look better if they had more contrast, or maybe a lighter color. 2. Modals are the same color as the background, so it's almost impossible to know where they start or end. 3. Ranks have a dark background on posts, but on profiles they remain white. vs 4. (SUGGESTION): It would be a good idea to also add a totally dark theme (#000) for the AMOLED/OLED/SUPER AMOLED screens, on smartphones/notebooks they are already very common, and it'd even remind chat groups, as they have a full black background. Example (Twitter): vs 5. (SUGGESTION): If suggestion 4th is made, it would be a good idea to rename the themes to "Light, Blue Dark, Dark, Super dark" or something like.

  32. Are there really xat competitors? There are sites with implementations and purposes of their own. None quite like xat. "Sky verified pawn is a new change and it was said multiple times it would be revisited if the pawn doesn't meet the expectations"... Just like it said cyan would be revisited or the countless "broken powers". "especially on a free-to-use service." is it really though? or is the site built on buying xats and subscriber days to have more features? Nothing is free in the end. Noone has the right to diminish the concerns of it's users, or simply brush them off. The xat users make this site what it is. I can not understand why volunteers especially would push for this agenda and not push further for an actual verification system to better the community and xat as a whole. we Should value each others opinions and grow. My words are aimed at new one directly

  33. Hello Today I want to say what I don't like and with that, I want to make a new suggestion. You know when you're chatting and many messages are written, you can't read them all or you want to copy the message, you go up to search for a message when you try to copy or read and someone else sends a new message, all messages go up and appear from new to the first message. I think it's annoying. - Message informing the user that he has unread messages. - When new messages appear and you search for old messages above, it doesn't affect your search. - When you search for old messages, an anchor will appear where you can reach the last unread messages, when you search above, the old messages will not be interrupted by the new messages. VideoEg I can answer any question, if you have you can ask, I will answer soon posible. Regards Bau

  34. This is a great idea, I would like to see it implemented, it already works partially as you suggested (showing the number of messages), but it would be good to highlight the messages that weren't read with a different background, eg. a dark background that when you scroll down the page mark the messages as read (back their background to normal), It's not hard to implement, and would bring a modern look to xat.

  35. It's a new era. Over the past years we have changed. Today, we show a new face. With the sole goal of keeping xat's originality and its magic, our chat has been rebranded to xat.com/xat In June 2020 our expectations were essentially a way to be found for the real community to participate in real decisions. These real decisions englobe suggestions and modifications that xat has been applying to the future of our favorite website. Our understandings on what can be better and what can be new are shared as we go and shaped by many different cultures. xat has a worldwide reach and the intention of having a development group that embraces union with diversity was our common cause. It is no longer about the structure behind the platform (flash or html) but about the real magic that belongs to xat. The friendships, the groups and the abilities available on xat. Today we mark the beginning of xat as xat. You need to feel the enthusiasm that we jointly share when it comes to redesigning and reinventing the chat and its experience. The creators have allowed us to have a place to do ideas and work them out, to participate actively on fresh new updates and have a voice towards what needs to happen. The time is now. Your chance is here. Your ideas now have a path to be oriented to, and we most certainly need you here as much as you need us (the group) to improve. To celebrate the One Year Anniversary of xat/HTML5 we say goodbye to its name plate and we present you the new xat/xat. Simple. Hard to forget and distinguished from other groups - the official development xat, where admins test and users have a key participation through feedback and chatting. The old group (xat.com/html5) will be redirected to its new address (xat.com/xat) as soon as possible but the monthly main system will continue to exist, returning in July 2021. During the month of June 2021 all previous main owners appointed on HTML5 will have the owner rank to celebrate the One Year Anniversary. Revive old memories and be ready to make new ones. We expect you to be part of this next chapter. See you there, join us at xat.com/xat 21th May 2021, Cupim, LaFleur Sloom & Junior.

Hello, I appreciate everything that is added by the administrator and for the community that represents xat.com, I agree that those who make an effort to be rewarded in the end should not be treated as selfishness, why do they have united rights, why don't they all because no one knows what it's like to help or support! There are many users who have helped and are helping because we are a family not a simple chat and please respect that! Thank you!

  38. Hello, I want to suggest a power, I hope you like it. Name: (Bantime) or (banrules) Status: Unknown Price: Unknown What is it for? This power will allow the main owner of xat to standardize the time and reason for the bans that his staff can give to a user. How it works ? The power will be assigned to your xat, go to the edit page, search for the name of the power. Click on edit, and after that will open a screen to configure your power. The idea of power arose for the main owner to standardize and control the time / reason for the ban, in his xat. This way, your staff will know the correct time and the reason for this user's ban. This can help with minor user errors, the ban being light, and not long. Preview ( 1 ) At first, we followed this type of thinking of what power would be like, follow the image below: Preview ( 2 ) After reformulating the idea better, we changed the way to ban the user. Preview ( 3 ) The images below show the appearance of the table for you (main owner) in edit. We are available for suggestions and criticisms, if you have any, leave your opinion below.

  39. This is a great idea! Instead of creating an Influencer Pawn it would be innovative to see this feature used more regularly, I.E instead of "NOT xat staff" Seeing a different label being used for example "Volunteer of xat" or "Official xat reseller". It's 2021 anyone with an instagram, snapchat, or tiktok claims to be an "influencer" We already have cyan pawn for "celebrities" which were the equivalent of influencers in the 2000's. Maybe applications for Cyan pawn should be made available to influencers, Celebrities or people who would like to promote xat on external platforms & see the feature Martin shows be used to highlight different rolls on xat itself.

  41. I am not against the idea of a verification system for volunteers for example but the way we have gone from one extreme of little suggestion for vols being "on xat volunteer" being denied to a fancy new pawn being announced is crazy. The skyblue pawn I don't think should be a thing and the cyan pawn being rebranded as a verified symbol for celebrates and influencers otherwise as you said its a dead pawn just sitting around waiting for something that wont happen which is new celebrities coming to xat. There has been many suggestions over the years with a special pawn being used for volunteers such as the yellow pawn, tick next to their name and the "on xat volunteer" but I hear excuses that these weren't required and admins didnt want special treatment for volunteers on live chats. I personally think the "on xat volunteer" feature would work great and the best way to verify a volunteer without the needs for a exclusive pawn. I believe this is also why the volunteer emeriti title was removed for past volunteers a few years back as it was deemed unnecessarily. while I am happy to see a verified system introduced for volunteers for sensitive matters and to prevent scams etc I dont think its necessarily to include smiley makers, game makers etc on this as the wiki and forum provide enough verification for these users and most requests and topics are often discussed on the forum anyway so dont think its useful to make this a thing on live chat. in terms of cyan pawn/sky pawn for game makers etc this was given to users who made the recent game for a short period of time when the power was first released and i defended the status of the cyan pawn back then along with others not agreeing the cyan pawn should be used in that way. its time for the cyan pawn to have purpose again as its been a standing around with no real value due no one being worthy of the celebrity title. I know you have been with the site for 10+ years from back in the ec2 days. i am glad you have raised your concerns and respect your views. I just hope all the views that people have made are taking into consideration before this new pawn is released into the community.

  42. Just wanted to way in on the subject about cyan/sky pawn. Haven't read all responses only the first few. Over the years I have always flighted the corner of the cyan pawn being for celebrities only and even people like techrax I didn't agree with getting it as it seems anyone with a big following is counted as a celebrity these days. I see the cyan pawn for people who are actors, singers etc not just anyone that can pick up a camera and record anything and people will subscribe/follow. However in todays age of things celebrities aren't the most popular people with the world of social media platforms like TikTok, Instagram and YouTube and people becoming influencers daily and I do feel like this needs to be addressed on xat somehow. If xat is serious about labelling these types of people now and making them stand out on live chats then I think the cyan pawn should really be the way these people are verified on xat. These are also going to be live accounts that people use to talk with on chats rather than someone looking for a influencers profile to follow such as twitter with the blue tick. xat doesn't have profile pages that allow users to follow them so I think this is the best way to label influencers when they enter a live chat room is with the cyan pawn. Sky pawn is a silly idea to make things more complicated than they need to be in terms of labelling between celebrities and influencers and even wanna be celebrities that may go power crazy and think they have authority because of certain status. Game makers, ticket volunteers and who ever else getting this pawn? absolutely unnecessarily to do this and defeats the idea of the influencers status., plus we have survived this long without special treatment on chats for these titles over 10+ years. Verified symbol for people in chat so they know who volunteers, smiley makers are etc? They are labelled on the wiki, special titles on the forum etc and lets be real xat community is small but loyal and everyone knows everyone's roles anyway so unless the community grows I think this is pointless. Sky pawn given out influencers without any minimum following? - what makes them an influencer if they have a small following? 1k followers, 10k followers and even 100k followers means nothing these days unlike they did back in the day. I understand each application will go through some sort of checklist but there needs to be some ground rules from some with pure talent with 100k followers vs a meme page, reaction youtube channel with the same following can't be compared if they have the same following. If people really wanted to they can get lots of followers easily with little effort and no talent and makes them an influencer? I just hope each case is looked at genuinely and how the influencer pawn/title will be used and not just for a popular contest. Main view points: cyan pawn be rebranded to suit a new generation and be used as a verified tool to genuine accounts that can benefit from it. sky pawn to be scrapped and not to be given out to the xat users with titles such smiley makers, vols, game makers and wanna be influencers that dont truly require a verified symbol.

  44. A lot of the opinions that I feel about this have already been discussed so I won't add further. However there is one suggestion that I would like to include as an alternative to the creation of a new pawn entirely. When a user hovers over the nickname of another user, this appears. This has been a thing as long as I can remember but there is no real use for it as admins very rarely login to their xat admin accounts, rather they have testing accounts like Tom2 and Tomflash to use instead. This therefore makes them completely useless and I feel that the identification of these users would be much better suited if they were included here rather than having a pawn specifically made for them. This will serve as a verification status without the need of them having a means to show off and exploit their status on the platform with a "special visual indicator".

  45. Because rank means nothing to me, it doesn't matter if someone has a pawn or not, if someone is famous and someone else is less famous, if someone helps more and someone less. All that matters is everyone's contribution and being happy with everything you did knowing you could do more, but you did everything you could. I like to see new things added, I agree 100% to be added, all our descendants deserve to feel good, much better than us. [ If we haven't had or won't have, others deserve it. I know, this has been discussed many times and nothing has ever been applied because most were against it, and now, seeing that the admin´s wants to apply this, they are not happy with this idea. Stop messing with the past because it hurts, just look into the future and live with the present. Many want to be volunteers, many were volunteers and didn't know how to maintain. Let's be happy for the admin´s initiative and enjoy everything he wants to do. Regards Bau

  46. It's very exciting to have a new pawn, and I'm optimistic about the long-term benefits it could have on bringing more users to xat! I'm personally not in favour of ticket volunteers, developers, smiley makers and certain resellers all being given the pawn, because I think it does diminish the appeal of it to influencers. It won't be as exclusive as Cyan pawn if 20-odd users have it, but as admin says the final decision hasn't been taken yet.
