  1. I'm not really sure how to change that. We use the badges made by IPS, and I'm not really sure how to add a custom color. This is how it's currently setup: {{if ($formValue=='open')}} <span class="ipsBadge ipsBadge_style1 ipsPos_right">Status: Open</span> {{elseif ($formValue=='fixed')}} <span class="ipsBadge ipsBadge_style6 ipsPos_right">Status: Fixed</span> {{elseif ($formValue=='closed')}} <span class="ipsBadge ipsBadge_style6 ipsPos_right">Status: Closed</span> {{elseif ($formValue=='wont-fix')}} <span class="ipsBadge ipsBadge_style6 ipsPos_right">Status: Won't Fix</span> {{endif}} Notice that I only chose a style, not a specific custom color. I'm sure it's easy to change, but I'm not sure how. Please tag me in the future if you'd like to make sure that I see any responses to this.
  2. Changed Status to Status: Fixed
  3. I think it's safe to say this topic has run its course. Thanks for the input.
  4. This argument is not consistent. Those volunteers argued for anonymous names on tickets, not total anonymity across the website. They were recognized as volunteers on the forum and on the wiki, so that argument doesn't really stand well. We can answer this by using the criteria that is in place: Could the ex-volunteer in question be welcomed back as a volunteer again? Since the people you're referring to were relieved of their duties and then were allowed back on the team, the answer is no, they wouldn't be denied. Instead of voting on a particular ex-volunteer, we used the opportunity to setup a criteria for all ex-volunteers. The same set of questions are asked for each person who is being considered for the title. Therefore, the specific facts are not always important, since the answer can be found without knowing all of the ex-volunteer's history. We didn't intend for the meaning to change for the title. In fact, the meaning was meant to stay the same. The reason for the renaming was to make it more simplistic: People would no longer need to ask what emeritus meant. However, the unintended consequence is that people think it now has a different meaning. I agree with your other statements. We don't need a title for chat owners, for example. They can create a club themselves, so a user group is not needed, as they would not have a private forum other than the one in their club. However, the only title that is truly not needed is "Retired Volunteer." For this reason, it's being considered for removal. The rest of the titles are not dumb and are necessary.
  5. The title is temporarily "Retired Volunteer," but the meaning of emeritus is still applied; in other words, only people who left on good terms are eligible to receive it. The title will either be renamed or will be removed completely in the near future. I did not decide (nor do I decide) who gets the title. The criteria for the title was decided by all contributors. If a former volunteer doesn't have the title, it's most likely the case that they left on bad terms. In cases like this, the number of years of service is irrelevant. What has been happening recently is that only a very small subset of people have been complaining about the existence of the title and have created all the drama surrounding it. Such arguments against the title are made under the guise that the title is unimportant, but the existence of the drama stands to show that the title actually is important and that it is desired. Who knew such a simple, well-meaning thing would be turned into such an issue?
  6. This sale has been marked as completed and the topic has been moved from the main ID Marketplace section. If you would like to buy or sell another ID, please open a new topic.
  7. iOS 6? What in the world...
  8. I came out the day after National Coming Out Day! I was feeling the pressure.
  9. I received a reply about this, either from administrators or the mobile team. Since this information was passed down to me, I can't determine who. Here is the response I received: "We're on 1.9, not 1.5 anymore. Not really needing any feedback for this." However, almost every single issue still exists. Oh well!
  10. Update: "Finished on 1.9. You can type %chatname to get a chat, and you can use @username to view a person's profile."
  11. This is another great idea. The current official stance is that the webpage "http://xat.com/app is available now." This does not make it easier for users to find the mobile apps because they will have to magically know that URL or find it on a search engine, which most users won't do. I'm just passing on the message.

    xat Update Log

    This is a great suggestion. Unfortunately, the current stance is that it's too hard to keep track of updates there, and more detailed release notes won't be available.
  13. I'll keep this topic here for reference purposes, but the current official stance is that there will be no Windows Phone or Windows 10 Mobile xat application. Once xat is available in HTML5, the chat will be accessible through your phone browser.
  14. I understand your suggestion. However, sub-forums need to be justified in terms of potential activity. For topics that have already concluded, such as when a suggestion has actually been implemented, there is little room for further discussion. The sub-forum itself would not really lead to extra discussion, and there currently isn't enough discussion happening in those types of topics to warrant a sub-forum just for those topics.
  15. I don't know why they tried to cram every feature into the mobile apps. It would have been better to make a simpler, elegantly-designed messaging app. It would have been perfect for xat users, and it would encourage new users as well. Instead, it's narrowly focused and designed for current xat users who know what they're doing.
  16. Like coming up with a completely new idea which is compatible with 21st century social media.
  17. Don't worry, at least I don't blame you. I don't know what they expect when all ideas appear to be ignored.
  18. List those hex suggestions, people!
  19. After we implemented the changes, we noticed some problems: The bot provider color is too close to the administrator color. The bot provider color may also be too close to the retired volunteer color. The moderator color is too close to the contributor color. "Retired Volunteer" may have a different meaning than "Volunteer Emeritus," so the name may be changed back. The colors were changed for good reason. The contributor color was too close to that of wiki members, for example. Some bot providers were also unhappy with the previous bot provider color. We are open to changes though, so if you have some good color suggestions, please list them!
  20. That's an interesting suggestion. Could you post it in General Discussion to see what people think?

    That doesn't seem like a good way to handle it, but I suppose that would make it not a bug.
  22. Sure, it sounds like a decent idea. Muffins went ahead and pinned it.
