  1. The Final Thread

    This is my final post / thread on the xat community. I have 0 interest to be participating on the forum any longer and will not be paying attention / looking at any theads / making any new threads on here. My reason for abandoning forum is partly linked to my resignation / removal from volunteer. This thread is just here to make it clear that I will not be using the forum actively (or at all. Undecided) and that private messaging me on here will most likely just go ignored. If you need to contact me for whatever reason you can send me a private message on xat. Long story short, I have failed in my goal to fix xat, and to fix xat support. I failed due to the fact that what I believed could be achieved could not be put into effect simply due to the fact that bias exists. I'll cut it short there to prevent this topic derailing into "drama" territory. if any of you want to know the full story / reason for my resignation / removal from volunteer i'll be happy to discuss it with you privately. Ultimately I just want to say sorry to you all for failing you. I just wanted to help you, the community in the best way I could but that just isn't realistic anymore. Sayonara.

  8. I've gotta say, the reputation system is probably the greatest thing xat has ever come up with. It's extremely useful and I can vouge for every single user that they absolutely just adore this beautiful baby. Just want to hug it and call it babes. <3

      As has already been said, please remain patient and wait for a response on the ticket you opened. Posting here will not speed up the answering process.

    'Slacking off' sounds bad. However, enjoying more of your day with the time you saved by doing your job in a clever way is definitely not a bad thing. Times like that are what makes a human's life rich. If you exaggerate, it could be called laziness, surely. However, people only become mature when they are able to balance work with enjoyment. In short, if all you care about is your job, you're not fully mature.

    Also, be sure to add #wc example (d#kxreindeer#wc) for more fun. Multiple modes are available for different smileys.
  13. Contributor Applications?

    Contributor Applications From what i've read so far regarding this system of contributor applications it doesn't sound too terrible despite having some obvious flaws. This is similar to filling out a job application for a position in a company you would like to work for. You fill out your basic information and "resume" that the staff at the company then review to see if it matches what they deem to be "suitable" for the job. I see this contributor application much of the same. Users would have the opportunity to fill out a "job" application to get hired as a contributor essentially. They would explain who they are, what they do for xat, what they have done for xat in the past, and whatever else the contributors want to ask / know. The applications then would be reviewed by the contributors and then they would decide if the person is a match for contributor or not. Bias plays a huge role here since people can bring up past offenses the user may have done and try to use that to argue against them being candidates for a contributor. The system does have its flaws but it all around is not a bad idea. This moves past the centralized idea of simply having a contributor suggest someone that they know. This gives the entire community a chance to apply and then be "reviewed" but you will still face that potential bias of users shutting you down. I personally do not see a way to get around this bias problem with, or without this system in play. If there was such a solution then I welcome you to explain that. But knowing that this system has the bias flaw, it seems reasonable and could potentially work. If there is say, 15 contributors, then if majority voted on the user in question they would most likely get picked. That is the issue as 4-5 people could automatically be against that user for past offenses. I think if this bias issue can be overcome, the system could work effectively. If not, then I see it merely as an illusion of application, and that it will be the same exact thing as before. Only choosing people that fit with that bias / don't have past offenses with the other contributors. Volunteer Applications Moving on, I think this system, if implemented should be considered for volunteers as well. Contributors are usually "trusted" users that have a good reputation with xat, and like to help contribute to the community in various different ways. Volunteers volunteer their time to answer tickets and assist users with various issues account wise and other. Contributors and Volunteers are not totally different to one another aside in their duties. I believe that this same system could apply for volunteer applications but only within the contributor group. Contributors that feel they could volunteer their time and answer tickets could fill out an application much like the "job" application for contributor. The volunteers would then have a vote on these users in question and once again we fall into the same issue with the bias. If that can be overcome, then this could greatly improve xat, open new doors for users wanting to help out, and give people more of an influence and voice in these matters. (My main concern is simply the bias that WILL be a factor in creating this system, but I am not opposed to the system itself. I am opened minded and would like to see what you all think about this and how the system will be formed / improved.) Thanks.

    If you want a hug it's possible. Just give me a good idea then i'll consider it. Any issues let me know also. Thanks
  15. Community Finding Solutions

    I think it's pretty obvious what the main issue is here. We can all agree that the ticket system could be improved / needs to be improved. I actually propose a potential "solution" for users suffering with the "Account Block" due to dormant account / inactivity. I propose that the users who have a NO_TRANS flag on their accounts, but do NOT have a "TORCH" flag, or any other "bad user" flag added to their account should be able to receive days to their account so that they can use their powers that they rightfully paid for. This would prevent scammers or hackers that may have hijacked accounts from being unable to steal the powers / xats from the account, but allow the legitimate users the ability to use the powers they rightfully own. Again, this would only apply to dormant account blocks, NOT torched accounts or accounts held for investigation purposes. Your thoughts? I also encourage @Andre to have a voice regarding this manner if he would choose to do so, seeing as he knows more about the internal issues that account block faces. Thank you.
