  1. It is allowed to have 2 bots (not more) but if and only if you have 2 bot powers assigned.

    Done, edited your post with @Abrahan information that was pretty complete. This should comply with forum guidelines now!

    Definitely @Mihay style! OG power, that's a nice one!
  4. On a side note, contributors did discuss Ajutor reopening because an important part of the Romanian community pushed for it in the first place. We do listen to users when they have fair requests. We are extremely glad to reopen Ajutor for a fresh new start.
  5. Dear staff members, dear Chat community, We are slowly coming to the end of 2019 and I personally wanted to wish you all a merry christmas and a happy new year, as well as summing up how the year went for Chat community - building upon the recent survey results. First of all, let me apologize. I admit I have not been as active this year as I used to be before due to personal constraint, both on xat and in my real life. This recently lead me to spend less time on chats yet helping xat on different tasks. Hopefully, most of you did not get mad at me for being less active; and do not worry, I am still as dedicated to Chat as I have ever been. Compared to 2018, 2019 was not a year of changes but rather a year of stability. This lead different staff members to take new responsibilities on their own, which is truly appreciated. Let me personally thank all of the Chat staff members for continuing to be so dedicated without expecting much in return. I will namely thank a few, although everyone deserves credits : - Masha, for being so much active and for managing the chat on a daily basis; - Hyperhouse, for livening the radio; - Elea, for coming up with the recent survey and suggesting improvements. Nonetheless, as I said, I am thanking all of the staff members. The survey results has lead me to worry about a few extremely important points, however. It seems that the atmosphere of the chat slowly becomes less and less friendly. I want to remind everyone that staff members are not police forces responsible of punishing "bad users" but rather active members that should bring activity and topics of discussion in a peaceful environment. Drama should be avoided and rules should be enforced accordingly, which means that sometimes a verbal polite warning is more than enough and that sometimes some toxic users should be banned for more than just a couple of hours. Due to these results, I have decided to take action in 2020, as I truly want Chat to be a friendly and family international chat. Nothing is settle down yet but I am thinking of a reorganization of the staff and of the different responsibilities. The details of the reorganization will be thought out soon and we will come up with a plan. This may possibly include adding a co-main owner to the chat; or assigning precise positions to some of the staff members, allowing them to focus on their position, or even reworking the membership system. Until now, there were 3 owner positions as well as 12 moderator positions available, this may also change. Actually, anything could change even though I want to keep all of the active staff members (this basically means everyone of you). If you have any question, or any suggestion, then feel free to send me a message. Every opinion will be considered. Last but not least, let me again wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year, wherever you are, whoever you are. Sincerely, Sydno

      Happy b day syd sorry for the delay.

  7. I had this implemented a couple of years ago on Fexbots and xatbot (Ocean) in order to manage staff activity. I couldn't pushed it further enough to add indicators based on thresholds but this is quite complete already. You may see this using !chatstaff command. I also know Arcbot has something similar, but less complete.

    Ticket Help Topic

    I definitely agree with all the points but we both know we are on xat and can hardly change the agenda ourselves. If we were in an ideal world, then all of what you said would have been added years ago. My point was simply to state the different options users have at the moment, given the current circumstances.

    Ticket Help Topic

    As Laming pointed out, you can already use Report Scam or Report Phishing Site help topics if you are not a paid user, even though I agree the terminology is wrong. There is no delay at all so this should work well. Having a new help topic dedicated for that may not be on the agenda even though this would work too. As a matter of fact, the button Inappropriate is often left unanswered or unseen so this may not be the right thing to do (even though you should always try that first). Another option is to send a (forum) message to a volunteer. At some point, this may even be the quickest.
  10. Just to make it clear, I confirm I am holding the prize. We do accept donations if you want to, but this may rather be added to a prize pool of the event we will host on Trade later after the background contest has ended, for halloween! Good luck everyone!
  11. Agreed with Nathan. There's plenty of fair reasons why some chat managers may want to have such a list. I personally don't on Chat and Trade but I understand why some do. All official chats may get an audit at some point and if such list is solely made based on personal matters, then it should be shut down. However, if there's good reasons for a user not to be considered eligible for staff for some time, then this is fair. In many countries, you need a clean record to get official positions, having a blacklist serves the same purpose. If you want this thread to generate action, then feel free to send me a private message indicating on what chat this occurs. We'll be checking further on these lists.

  13. Gotta admit I first liked your idea but Cupim convinced me. You can be sure some users would complain their code was already used by someone else, or scammers would use it to give away tons of xats without using the trade app. Also given the understanding of some users, some phishers would make it look like a xats generator and trick users into given them the xats. You don't imagine how naive some users can be. Ultimately, I still appreciate the idea a lot because you could potentially use the code to store xats on a protected "wallet". If you replicate this system and find a way to store an ID into a protected wallet as well, you could use it as a safe way to purchase an ID. ID resell is currently at your own risks, but if this guess through xat servers, this would be extremely cool.
  14. Hello everyone! Shizuo is hosting a special event this evening on Chat. It will be a doodlerace contest. You'll get the occasion to have fun in any language on Chat and also to win quite a lot of xats! He will be helped by HelperNate, HyperHouse and Chat owners! Here's the details. Prizepool: 12,000 xats (can increase overnight) Event will start around 10 pm CEST so that American and Brazilian users have a chance to join too! Our DJ, HyperHouse will host a live music at the exact same time! Join us whenever you want on xat.com/Chat and stay tuned by joining our forum club! I want to particularly thank the users who donated for this event. Anonymous user: 3,000 xats Shizuo: 3,000 xats Amyy: 2,000 xats HyperHouse: 2,000 xats HelperNate: 1,000 xats Masha: 1,000 xats
  15. The latter one was a very important thread for xat Turkish community and was discussed a lot. The wiki thing was concluded within a few days. I assume this would be clearer if we also mention the time we spent discussing each thread.

    New login pages

    What I'm gonna say is very cliche, but unfortunately true. Without these protections, a lot more users would get scammed. Banks can take the risks because their other protections are better developed and they can easily reimburse their customers in case of a scam (something xat cannot afford). Nonetheless, bank transfers are capped (similar to xat reserve) and a scammer wouldn't be able to steal an entire account, while without the hold, you could be entirely scammed. Last but not least, even though you complain the same when it happens, you care less about your xat wallet than your bank wallet and take less precautions. My points are messy but I'll gladly be more detailed if necessary. Although I also think an off button would be completely appropriate, Jedi is not the only xat user who works in a side country. Ultimately, if one's afraid about security, this off button could be manually triggered by volunteers only after the user is verified and told this isn't a safe option.
  19. At the moment, Ajutor is redirected to Assistance. So far, nothing indicates that the chat will be restored but once again, this may not be permanent. Bau can still host a contest if he wants to but please note that the backgrounds may never be used.

    The limit of days

    I don't fully get the rational for users to have more than 9,000 days. 9,000 is equivalent to more than 24 years and 6 months of subscription while xat chat itself has been alive for less than 15 years (let alone the day when days were introduced). Even if you giveout all of your days to 100 different users, each of them would have more than 2 years of subscription time... Individuals definitely do not need more than that, besides competing at who's the wealthier in days. I understand why it can be an issue for bot providers but given the current userbase, I doubt this even is a weekly issue? Technically, bot providers are able to refuse days as a payment method if they wish, nonetheless. Don't get me wrong, I also agree that 9,000 days is an arbitrary limit, but I don't think this is rational for anyone to have more than that. On the other hand, having days both as a payment method for powers and a subscription time is quite outdated for a social network, but that's xat charm!
  21. The group could not cope with all the discussions at the time and the consensus was that contributors were dealing with too sensitive topics. It was a nice run with you and a nice experience overall but yes, enough is enough.
