  1. Congrats Lemona, All the best in your new role! :D
  2. I am not against the idea of a verification system for volunteers for example but the way we have gone from one extreme of little suggestion for vols being "on xat volunteer" being denied to a fancy new pawn being announced is crazy. The skyblue pawn I don't think should be a thing and the cyan pawn being rebranded as a verified symbol for celebrates and influencers otherwise as you said its a dead pawn just sitting around waiting for something that wont happen which is new celebrities coming to xat. There has been many suggestions over the years with a special pawn being used for volunteers such as the yellow pawn, tick next to their name and the "on xat volunteer" but I hear excuses that these weren't required and admins didnt want special treatment for volunteers on live chats. I personally think the "on xat volunteer" feature would work great and the best way to verify a volunteer without the needs for a exclusive pawn. I believe this is also why the volunteer emeriti title was removed for past volunteers a few years back as it was deemed unnecessarily. while I am happy to see a verified system introduced for volunteers for sensitive matters and to prevent scams etc I dont think its necessarily to include smiley makers, game makers etc on this as the wiki and forum provide enough verification for these users and most requests and topics are often discussed on the forum anyway so dont think its useful to make this a thing on live chat. in terms of cyan pawn/sky pawn for game makers etc this was given to users who made the recent game for a short period of time when the power was first released and i defended the status of the cyan pawn back then along with others not agreeing the cyan pawn should be used in that way. its time for the cyan pawn to have purpose again as its been a standing around with no real value due no one being worthy of the celebrity title. I know you have been with the site for 10+ years from back in the ec2 days. i am glad you have raised your concerns and respect your views. I just hope all the views that people have made are taking into consideration before this new pawn is released into the community.
  3. Just wanted to way in on the subject about cyan/sky pawn. Haven't read all responses only the first few. Over the years I have always flighted the corner of the cyan pawn being for celebrities only and even people like techrax I didn't agree with getting it as it seems anyone with a big following is counted as a celebrity these days. I see the cyan pawn for people who are actors, singers etc not just anyone that can pick up a camera and record anything and people will subscribe/follow. However in todays age of things celebrities aren't the most popular people with the world of social media platforms like TikTok, Instagram and YouTube and people becoming influencers daily and I do feel like this needs to be addressed on xat somehow. If xat is serious about labelling these types of people now and making them stand out on live chats then I think the cyan pawn should really be the way these people are verified on xat. These are also going to be live accounts that people use to talk with on chats rather than someone looking for a influencers profile to follow such as twitter with the blue tick. xat doesn't have profile pages that allow users to follow them so I think this is the best way to label influencers when they enter a live chat room is with the cyan pawn. Sky pawn is a silly idea to make things more complicated than they need to be in terms of labelling between celebrities and influencers and even wanna be celebrities that may go power crazy and think they have authority because of certain status. Game makers, ticket volunteers and who ever else getting this pawn? absolutely unnecessarily to do this and defeats the idea of the influencers status., plus we have survived this long without special treatment on chats for these titles over 10+ years. Verified symbol for people in chat so they know who volunteers, smiley makers are etc? They are labelled on the wiki, special titles on the forum etc and lets be real xat community is small but loyal and everyone knows everyone's roles anyway so unless the community grows I think this is pointless. Sky pawn given out influencers without any minimum following? - what makes them an influencer if they have a small following? 1k followers, 10k followers and even 100k followers means nothing these days unlike they did back in the day. I understand each application will go through some sort of checklist but there needs to be some ground rules from some with pure talent with 100k followers vs a meme page, reaction youtube channel with the same following can't be compared if they have the same following. If people really wanted to they can get lots of followers easily with little effort and no talent and makes them an influencer? I just hope each case is looked at genuinely and how the influencer pawn/title will be used and not just for a popular contest. Main view points: cyan pawn be rebranded to suit a new generation and be used as a verified tool to genuine accounts that can benefit from it. sky pawn to be scrapped and not to be given out to the xat users with titles such smiley makers, vols, game makers and wanna be influencers that dont truly require a verified symbol.
