  1. No problem. Thanks for your relaxed and professional reply, even though I already "annoyed" on the chat box with parts of these topics bugging me. LOL. If you want, I can become your Firefox tester. I use the browser on a regular basis, as you might've guessed. Whenever you need something tested, you can notify me and I'll test it. But for daily usage, it's too incomplete for me to be happy with yet in general - be it on any browser there is out there. I spent alot of money on xat and would like to see all my powers work ... I think many users would prefer xat to become more stable and bugs to be fixed. I am sure it would attract them. There were many angry users who rioted about never fixed Flash bugs in the past aswell, such as smileys or avatars not loading properly, which could only be fixed by reloading the site once or sometimes multiple times.
  2. Hello xat community, I just wanted to tell you that I'm quite fed up with the way development of the HTML5 chat box went so far. First of all, it seems to me as if the code that was written up to this point was just tested in two browsers - Chrome and Opera. While ignoring the fact that code must be written to work equally well on Firefox and Safari browsers. For example, on Firefox, the smileys and pawns shake annoyingly when the chat box is loaded. I've been some of a Webdesigner myself and I know that there are always ways keep the code clean, short and simple, that work for Firefox and Chrome equally well - meaning browser neutral. To find them, you need to research online more and test for BOTH Firefox and Chrome, ofc. Taking that into consideration, parts of the HTML5 box's code imo need to be rewritten completely. The parts of the community who tell me on the chat box to "just use Chrome" - no, I won't. You please program your (censored) stuff to be cross compatible with Firefox, Safari and Chrome. If I bought a fridge and told the business my fridge doesn't work in my house, they won't tell me to put it in another house either, do they? They take back the fridge and they fix it to work, as part of the customer service. In defense of Firefox - at least it has built-in tracking protection and doesn't talk back to Google on everything and all I do on the Browser. Furthermore, the browser REALLY got better SIGNIFICANTLY with Quantum release. A message to all Firefox users out there - our browser works fine everywhere else - don't let an incompetent community tell you to change your browser just for ONE social network that doesn't work properly in our browser. Furthermore - why do you keep adding new features with older features added in the past not yet fixed and yet still not stable? For example,.you work on a search feature in friendlist, while NAMEGRAD in HTML5 is not working properly and is displayed upside down in comparison to Flash xat and for saving/updating your name you need to click "save" twice for some reason. "Away" is also not working properly etc. It's all known. Fix the old stuff first before adding new stuff, or the future result will be a buggy, confusing mess you won't be able to keep track of anymore, trust me. Last but not least some information: You only need to test your code on Firefox, Chrome and Safari. All other browsers today are forks based directly on either the source code of Firefox or Chrome, meaning they use the same rendering engines under the hood. Two examples: if something works in Mozilla Firefox, it will work in Comodo IceDragon. If something works in Google Chrome, it will work in Opera. See the list of web browsers on Wikipedia. Everyone else who might be frustrated with HTML5 development in ANY way - feel free to vent and let out your frustration here. This is what I created this topic for. Greetings, Voymo
  3. Hello fellow community, I have some more ideas I want to share. The first and of all I think it might attract new users if xat adds a feature for voice messages that can last for limited durations. The Idea is adding a "Microphone Button" at the bottom right corner of the "Type here" box. For example, like so: One could make it so the icon only displays when you hover over it with your mouse, so it does not distract. Since this has been suggested before and has not yet been done: xat limits it's messages to 256 characters. xat could limit it's voice memos to 30 seconds (proposal). Otherwise, we could introduce a simplier way to set your profile picture on the Chat Box, so that alternately to inserting an image hoster link, one could click a button to simply select an image from the web or your computer with a few clicks to use it on xat. For example: Now to the point: How about a power that boosts the Blueman Power to behave more like purple, meaning that the Blueman pawn always shows, regardless if you are a guest, member, mod or owner?
  4. Thank you. If you have questions because you don't quite understand how I meant something explained above, just ask here, too. And I will try to clarify with my replies.
  5. Hey, while xat is busy on reworking it's site, I have a suggestion for you - A more dynamic chat box. Since mid 2007 the biggest standard Chat Box size on xat was 728x486. The chat box, in it's flash version, is already very dynamic, since it was made to be embedded on your homepage in various sizes. Most of the buttons use vector images already. Nowadays, more and more people use high resolution monitors which differ in their resolutions alot. Ranging mostly from Full HD over 2K to 4K, especially for the latter this is too small. On the old flash version of the group pages, the side apps open too far away from the Chat Box, too. Now it is time, in my opinion, for the Chat Box to become more dynamic in size, changing sizes depending on what monitor they are viewed on (and, that is, the size of the browser window.) I tried on my own chat to make the chat box bigger, trying a resolution of 800x534 (1.1x size, applying to the flash chat box) and everything looks very smooth. CSS designers can try to test with increasing or decreasing their chat box sizes (in the flash version, since CSS doesn't work for the HTML5 versions yet) by adding the following chat group CSS: [height='486']{width:800px}[height='486']{height:534px} Where the values in the squirly brackets may vary. Keep in mind the Chat Box's dimensions are 3:2 (3 by 2). You can put the side apps closer to the chat box by adding the following: #media embed{float:right} Does this mean the old standard for BG designers of 728x486 would be no longer relevant? Well, yes. But is xat in itself today very relevant anymore? Sometimes change requires you to let go of old goodies to be open for the future. I can understand many BG designers would be against it, but if this site that I love so much keeps dying, who are you gonna design your BGs for anyways? One suggestion would be for future inner BG designers to use programs like Adobe Illustrator or the free alternative Inkscape to design dynamic SVG file backgrounds that will not use quality when scaled up or down. Meaning xat should allow the use of SVG file backgrounds which also means allowing different file hosters. Another way, the better one in my opinion, would be to keep 728x486 as one of, let's say, 4 different static resolutions the chat box automatically changes it's size to if a certain window/screen criteria is met, meaning BG designers in that case would need to design one big background or four different sized ones. Example: Browser window / screen size is at 1600x900 - Chat Box size: 728x486 Browser window / screen size is at 1920x1080 - Chat Box size: 800x534 Browser window / screen size is at 2560x1440 - Chat Box size: 900x600 etc. Additionally, we could make xat's side webapps click and dragable around the site, in order to change their positioning. Just like you click and drag around the windows of open apps/programs on your computer to change their positioning. So, make xat's apps, like xavi, doodle, etc. moveable. And maybe, add a titlebar? So, bottom line: Chat Box = Dynamic size Side webapps = Static, dragable, moveable around the webiste Greetings, Voymo
  6. Aha. So why is it even insecure on a chat that doesn't have any users at all on it? I am myself using https avatar + https pcback. So I don't count. duh. https://prnt.sc/g3zswv https://prnt.sc/g3zt39 Edit: Sorry. Nevermind. Was my bad, the issue was on my side and I found it.
  7. Why is the page not anymore flagged as "safe" even though ALL links are HTTPS? http://prntscr.com/g3ic10 http://prntscr.com/g3icnh
  8. Good topic. I will post mine after I took my sleep then I'll edit this post 😂
  9. Oh damn right, I need to learn reading lmao Edit: Yo, could you guys please check out the BOOT power? It doesn't seem to work anymore aswell. I cannot boot people successfully anymore. Power used 100% correctly.
  10. The issue with the xat embedable radio players is known already. It will be fixed soon I guess.
  11. Well, not in my opinion. I can recognize the apples wonderfully on there. Let the admin take a closer look and think then decide about that neutrally with their own opinions. We just suggest. What should be fixed is the xavi app with this white, though. The HTML5 chat box is a big technical step forward and we should think of new design concepts, since the chat box has been having the current design concept for many years now. Mentioning, I am talking about xat currently having a design that reminds strong of the Windows Vista/7 generation. As a company and social network, I think it would be good to test around with current design fashion consisting of flat, minimalistic design and different shades of transparency. Xat has always been good for it's design in my eyes. I am sure you can be innovative and creative, Tom2 and Bignum.
  12. Snakeban messed up? In my opinion it looks better than it did before like this How it is now, that green background from before is gone and replaced with different shades of transparencies. (note that transparency is indeed still up-to-date design wise, Windows 10 has it in the Start Menu, taskbar and Action Center, MacOS has it in the Dock)
  13. Not my way I would be taking. I rather prefer the introduction of keyboard shortcuts/button combinations with the upcoming release of the HTML5 chat box for that. For PM, but also other things on xat. What I have in mind for how this would work for PM? Once the assigned shortcut was performed, a little, long window in the chat box pops up with a lock symbol on the very left and a typing box that fills the rest of the window, for you to enter the user ID you wish to PM.
  14. Yep, httpS works, but not // example: Background CSS: background: #000000 center/cover fixed url(http://i.imgur.com/image.png);} works Background CSS: background: #000000 center/cover fixed url(https://i.imgur.com/image.png);} works Background CSS: background: #000000 center/cover fixed url(//i.imgur.com/image.png);} does not work, but should. Link converts into http://i.imgur.com/image.png example 2: Below the chat: <img src="http://i.imgur.com/image.png" /> works <img src="https://i.imgur.com/image.png" /> works <img src="//i.imgur.com/image.png" /> this aswell converts into http:// same goes not only for imgur but also for cubeupload and other image hosters. Imgur and cubeupload both tested with httpS - working. // is best as it is responsive. If the site is http it makes the stuff http, if the site is httpS it makes the stuff httpS (correct me if wrong)
  15. Yo, when I add "//i.imgur.com/0RJnrTv.png" link for example in top CSS or to the below iframe, the PHP filter still converts it into "http://i.imgur.com/0RJnrTv.png" instead of leaving it untouched. Could you fix this please?
  16. http://prntscr.com/fypouk ruled
  17. I see. On the chat box it works using a https background image tho (any reason why you come to it as "HeadDoodle" always? LOL) So conclusion: -On the below chatsgroup iframe, "//" and "https" should be accepted and not anymore converted into "http" (or, in some cases, "hZtp") -On the top chat group CSS, normal (non-CSS) background with "https" should be accepted and CSS should accept links starting with "//" (currently converts // to http://) (And for sake please don't make filtering even stricter than it is currently, Admins D': ) Edit: http://prntscr.com/fxkz7x working
  18. Considering our time, this morning at aproximate 11am I edited my group and added it.
  19. Ah? http://prntscr.com/fxk8fg
  20. How Mihay himself likes this XD
  21. Thank admins for it. @LaFleurIs already. She edited her post. c:

    Social Account Links

    Yep indeed Awesome idea I 100% support as is. Xat had similar Facebook Integration before and this here would be very cool entirely. (especially for Techrax )
  23. So scrap the contest and contact Mike The old images have a much smaller resolution than 728x486 which is why they are pixelated first of all. Very good idea Angy, I also hope this will be done soon or later. I had a few friends that actually used the default backgrounds tbh. Need some ideas for what to be done? Like motifs? We need to be careful and keep in mind to not use any copyrighted material though.
