  1. 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 40 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!

  4. 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).

  6. xat is the only place where the people actually running the site (smiley makers, volunteers) are not rewarded for their work (a test power does not count at all) even if its with just a small pawn that says what they do on the site. i cannot believe how hard the conversation must be for them to be given a different role on the forum in the first place. it still amazes me the hate the same community gaves the people making this site work.

  11. Hello community, The suggestion is very simple, implement ''Community Answers'' in the Leaderboard of the forum in the Top Members section. This could give a little boost to users to help in General Support and recognize their contribution to xat within the forum.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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?

  17. Good idea in theory. But what makes you think these ideas will be listened to or valued? Originally this was why the Contributors section was created; to voice the community's opinions on meaningful topics. In reality, the section is just political debates over extremely minuscule details around the site, like the number of days Events power should show. The group isn't contributing to any impactful decisions. Why would a Google form ran by people not even in that group hold any weight? And don't confuse this with me complaining, because I'm not. I wrote virtually this exact post years ago in that forum section. The admins can run the site how they please; we just have to accept that despite good intentions from the community, most decisions are made alone or with a select few. The only way this will ever work is if the admins actually want it to work.

  20. Great, and just because the staff sign up for no pay shouldn't mean that everyone else on this site should mindlessly adhere to mediocrity, nor does it mean that the staff should mindlessly adhere to mediocrity with respect to anything outside of the subject of what they're paid. I agree it's obviously hypocritical to sign up as staff knowing you won't get paid and then complain about not being paid, but what about everyone else who isn't currently staff? Additionally, you're acting like the subject of what the staff is paid is the only thing I'm referring to in what I'm saying, when this very clearly isn't the case It's incredibly toxic to shut down any and all criticism by branding it as hate/negativity purely because 'we should be grateful for what we're given'. At that point, this wouldn't be a community driven site, but an echo chamber in which discussion amounts to nothing because apparently everyone should just readily accept anything and everything the higher-ups put forth Also, I find it amusing how you state one of the main issues with staff not being paid (they can leave unpredictably since they don't have any dependence on the devs), and then in the same breath you can't think of any reasons for why it might be logical for the devs to pay staff

  21. Hello xat-ers I want to allow the use of smileys for users and when they are in private not only on chat main, as long as they are on chat where that power is Assigned. I don't know how many of you want this, and I don't know why not everyone can use chat power as long as it's assigned, regardless of main chat or private chat. Maybe can be an option in which the main owner can decide whether or not users can use private emoticons. If I assign a power on chat, I want all users to be able to use it on Main/ Private chat. Regards Bau

  25. 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.

  29. 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

  30. 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.

  31. 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

  33. 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.

  36. I'm not really targeting any person in this discussion, don't take it personal, but we've all seen those users, who're greatly affected by ranks, it gives them a sense of prestige or power. Imagine such people seeing an "influencer" with their special pawn joining the chat. I guess some people are just afraid they lose their status with this new pawn, specially when its near impossible for them to get. Generally, I like the idea, only if the influencers are actively promoting xat, otherwise I think it will create unnecessary attention and they will probably be a magnet for harassment (hope not).

  37. there's a difference between criticism and negativity a pawn being implemented at all doesn't mean that it's a good implementation. people are allowed to criticise what they think is a bad implementation of a pawn and simultaneously want a pawn in the context of what they see as a better implementation you're reaching for a hypocrisy when there isn't one

  39. I've been asking that question for the last decade. Lol. The reality is it is hard to vet anonymous people on the internet. Even someone who seems trusted can be hiding their intentions. All it takes is one or two bad apples to make the whole system a mistake. Plus, 'usefulness' has often outweighed trustworthiness, responsibility, and morality on this website. I'm still torn, but there probably isn't any point to discuss this any further. It's not like the opinions of the community matter on most topics.

  42. 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.

  43. I, personally, am split on the topic of ticket volunteers and other oft-impersonated groups receiving some sort of verification. I think if it happens, a pawn is too 'flashy', and it should be something that shows when you click their profile as many have suggested. If it happens, I agree with several of the volunteers who have said that a line must be drawn somewhere. Volunteers, especially those who have been working for years, put in a lot of time and work behind the scenes and are also frequently impersonated. Same with developers. When I look at it this way -- that verifying these users serves as an acknowledgement of their years of unpaid work while also protecting the community -- I become tempted to support this change. I understand that in the past these groups have not wanted verification, but I don't think that is a good enough reason on its own to block it. I become more hesitant for two reasons. First, a few select users who I would assume would receive some sort of verification have a history of shady activity. I cannot honestly say that I would trust every user to handle this verification responsibly. Further, xat's history is littered with trusted users who one day went rogue and took advantage of their status on their way out, to the surprise of many. Giving them a seal of approval on behalf of the admins would likely only give them more power to do damage should they one day choose to follow in the footsteps of their predecessors. It's not something that would be an issue on a day-to-day basis, but handing unpaid, largely-anonymous users even more power certainly introduces more risk. The second reason I am hesitant is because I believe it may not serve its intended purpose very well at all. The primary reasoning behind this change, surely, is to prevent scams that occur when users impersonate 'important' personnel. These scammers are successful with accounts that obviously do not appear on the Volunteer wiki page. If people are falling for these (often very obviously fake) impersonators, are they really going to stop falling for their tricks just because they don't have a 'Volunteer' badge on their profile? The people who fall for these scams are not the most educated on the inner workings of xat, clearly, and I don't know that the existence of this verification system would suddenly wisen them up and prevent scams. As for the influencer portion of this announcement, it seems the intentions were not properly conveyed by the admins. I don't know how many real 'influencers' are on xat today just waiting to be verified, but if a few do exist, I think they should just get the cyan pawn. Let's be real, no real celebrities are joining xat any time soon.

  44. 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.

  45. 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.

  47. VOTE REMAKE (Suggestion) My idea is to let users to vote inside the chat. This allows users to debate before they vote. With voting inside the chat, if your chat is embedded to a website your visitors would easily be able to vote without leaving the conversation. LIMITATIONS The vote would allow only 4 voting options and a x number of characters at each option, to be defined depending on where (what area) the vote displays. WHO CAN VOTE? With vote power assigned, the chat owner would be able to define who can vote. Few examples: Registered only, Subscriber only or Members only. HEADER VOTE (main chat) As a way to get users to know that there's a vote going on, a header version of the vote would display above the main chat. This would appear only at the first time they visit the chat. If they voted already, the header wouldn't show up anymore. Note: the header would still pop up in case they forgot to vote. This means the header persists until the user has voted. IF the vote is defined only for +members to vote, then the header wouldn't display to guests (example). Later (if voted already or closed the header), the vote would still be accessible through te QUICKBAR: ACCESS VOTE ANYTIME By clicking on the (vote) smiley, the voting in the quickbar area would be opened automatically. WHO CAN EDIT? With gcontrol power the chat owner would be able to set which rank can edit the vote (in real time). But its default setting would allow only main owners to edit it in real time. Though it could be configured for +temp owners (example). COLORS TO THE OPTIONS You could also add colors to your vote options: SMILIES TOO! With the power assigned, you could choose any free smile to be shown with the option (you'd need to add the smiley code). And if you have all group powers assigned to your chatroom, you'd be able to use any smiley from any power (if possible, smiley combinations could also be added). SHARE KISS (Lemona's idea) Users would be able to share the vote results through a kiss, by using the share button. The share button would be found at the header area and the quickbar area. SHARE STICKER There could also be a sticker with the results (an adjusted version of the kiss). But the sender would have to own the VOTE power to use that one sticker. WHAT CHANGED? In the past, vote would be accessed outside the chat through an application. In this new suggestion, there won't be a need for an application anymore, making users lives easier. CAN WE EXPAND ITS LIMITATIONS? The header area allows a specific number of voting options but there could be a way to "resume" them, or show them fully if the user hovers their mouse above the option. Another alternative is to add a scroll option to the header. If the header is not appreciated, there would be sufficient area for +6 voting options through the QUICKBAR. IS THERE ANY OTHER DESIGN? Instead of a header and the quickbar, there could be a "window" (dialog) showing the vote. Below there's an example of how the vote model was: A similar design could be implemented inside the chat, as a window (dialog). With buttons to allow the user to go back to chat without voting. This window/dialog could be accessed by clicking on the (vote) smiley, or accessing the 'vote' option in the QUICKBAR menu. With the dialog, users would be able to set a background-image, or a backgroundFX (eg. a smiley). This is a suggestion aimed to allow users to chat about the vote, by allowing them to see both the vote options and the main chat. It is also aimed to allow users to vote even if the chat is embedded to a website/blog. What do you prefer? Post your suggestion if you have any and feel free to modify any of the ideas above. Together we can make voting fun.
