  1. Hello,

     

    If you have absolutely no proof of this occuring, then unfortunately, there is not much that can be done, as per Stif's reply.

     

    There is no real way for xat  to tell whether or not you traded your powers to another person willingly, or if your friend really used teamviewer to do so.

     

    If you can find a way to document the event and provide evidence, you may consider opening a ticket  in the help department of "Report Scam". Otherwise, please consider taking some time to refresh yourself and do some research on internet security. It really pays to get educated on how to protect your data and information!

     

    This thread will now be closed as your question has been answered. If you have any other seperate questions, feel free to open a new support thread.

  3. I've spent a bit of time reading through the replies and I'm grateful to see so much feedback, positive and negative. Here are a few things to consider:

    • I, nor any other member of the forum staff, will be scanning and studying each individual award point that goes out. That'd be too tedious and not worth the effort. The only time we take the time to investigate a matter is if we receive numerous reports about it from other forum users. If Tom decides to give Fred a Trophy for a random post once, we aren't going to warn and ban Tom into oblivion. It's only when Tom starts to give Fred 5 Trophies a day for 7 days in a row that we may decide to ask what's going on.
    • Removing the ability to give forum reputation in certain areas altogether seems way too restrictive to me. I still want users to give out reactions and likes to their friends for funny statuses, or other meaningful posts. I think either @SLOom or @Leandro mentioned just completely ditching the ability to give rep in "New Power Testing"-- to which I argue that I believe that'd be a bad idea. Good thoughts and ideas, suggestions and feedback can be given to new powers, and I think smiley makers and xat enjoy seeing those types of posts. It would be a shame, and like I mentioned above, way too restrictive to just remove it entirely. 
    • I actually really like the idea @xLaming suggested about being able to remove reputation from your own profile, similar to the "Recent Visitors" widget. However, this is something that would have to be approved by the forum administrators provided there is IPS support for it. I'm not sure if it would be possible, but perhaps if enough support was given to the idea, it could be enacted. At this time I think they want to keep things the way they are for a bit to monitor feedback. 
    • Like Crow mentioned, no new rules have been made. These rules have already existed, we just decided to be a bit more vocal about them to try to prevent confusion and lack of moderator feedback. 

    I want to say thank you to everyone who has provided feedback thus far, even if you are not a fan of this new system. I always believe there is a way to provide feedback and criticism without being malicious about it, and a lot of users have shown this to be true. To those wishing death to the forum staff, throwing out threats to our lives and other such hostile ideas, I challenge you to step back for a moment to reconsider how much of an affect this has on your lives. Please try to give constructive feedback, not just malignant words of hatred.

  4. We're unable to tell you the username or ID if you don't know at least one of the following:

    • Username
    • ID
    • Email address

    If you don't know any of those 3, the account is lost forever (unless you remember one)

  5. I don't realistically see this being implemented any time soon. Too many logistical holes, doesn't provide much benefit, and super low on the hierarchy of "priority" in terms of xat development.

  6. Please stop posting threads that are vague and don’t fully explain your suggestion in detail.

     

    Don’t post just to post.

     

    If you have a real, thought out explanation and you think it would benefit xat, please go ahead and post it. But don’t spam the forum with low effort threads just to see your post count go up each time.

  7. I’ll be locking this thread.

     

    This type of power has been suggested before. However, it has been decided that it would not be appropriate to create a power revolving solely around religion. xat does not intend to promote any specific religion or belief system. 

     

    In the future, try to be a bit more specific with your suggestions, and try to avoid controversial ideas, such as religion or politics.
