  1. Option For More xats Packages on Buy

    That's unfortunate! Users should be able to pay in the way they prefer. Have you tried linking your American Express card to PayPal and using PayPal? That is the easiest solution I can imagine. In general, payment options are extremely limited for some reason, and users are forced to turn to resellers.
  2. Option For More xats Packages on Buy

    This is a stretch, but it'd be nice if xat supported a single payment platform like Stripe. It has support for 135+ currencies, ACH debits, Bitcoin, Apple Pay, Pay with Google, Amex Express Checkout, WeChat Pay, Alipay, Giropay, and others. On top of that, xat could introduce subscriptions with Stripe Subscriptions and allow discounts for people who continually purchase packages of subscriber days. I think that's just wishful thinking though.
  3. Goodbye xat

    It was nice getting to know you, Manu. I really hope you do well in your career adventures.
  4. We can expect further deflation and a worsening situation for the economy of xat.
  5. Could you describe: How exactly does the current design make it hard to search for the latest topics? How exactly would adding the widgets make it easier? For example, are there too many taps that you have to make right now? Do you have to scroll too much? Why is it hard and what makes it hard? If you describe the problem clearly, I may be able to offer solutions to you.
  6. With options three and four, there is a potential problem of the sidebar having too many things. As a guest, the sidebar could potentially be very large and go well past the available forums. This is why I decided to remove redundant things (things that can be found on the Activity page) while also adding new information such as statistics. Plus, who actually uses the new topics or new replies widget? That only shows a few things. What if there are other topics you're interested in that aren't showing on the feed? How do people actually use the sidebar widget for new topics or replies? Wouldn't it make sense to go to each forum separately, and visit each topic that looks interesting or has new replies? Finding new topics or replies from the sidebar only leaves the opportunity to miss things if you aren't individually checking each section. Basically, I imagine that most people go to each section they're interested in and look for new topics and replies in that manner. If that's the case, the sidebar widget would be even more redundant.
  7. @Dann Let's take this opportunity to figure out what to add to the sidebar and what to remove. Can you come up with some poll questions which will help determine this? We'll allow the entire community to vote on this topic. Just post sample poll questions that I can review, and I'll approve them and create a poll later.
  8. It could possibly come back. it was removed because there’s an entire center dedicated to the latest content. You can even create your own stream so that you only see the new things that you want to see. https://forum.xat.com/discover/ The birthday widget filters out inactive people.
  9. Open/Closed Topics Visual

    I decided not to implement this, but I have some good news. First, the color for open records was swapped with the black color that closed, fixed, and won't fix records used. I felt that a definite black color better represented closed, fixed, and won't fix. Second, we are now better at archiving records that have been marked as closed, fixed, or won't fix. We will now routinely check the tracker to make sure that archiving is done. This means that you will usually only see one status type. You basically won't have the opportunity to be confused, as open and closed bugs are separated by section. Because of our routine checking, it makes messing with colors unnecessary, for the most part.

  11. Suggesting new forum colors

    Thank you for the feedback. Some suggestions were accepted!
  12. Why new titles and colors?

  13. How will you spend Halloween 2017?

    Not Halloween exactly, but next week I'll be spending time seeing @Kayzar.
  14. [iOS 1.5.1] Feedback

    iOS 9 is barely being supported by developers across the App Store. It doesn't make sense to support a version literally only 2% (or less) of users have.
  15. Test thread ignore

    Testing doesn’t warrant massive spamming. If you encounter a problem, post it here.
