  2. Hello, It appears to be time for October's seasonal's greetings and Halloween lash, huh? That means it's time to share some spooky spirit with you all in what work I've made for this year's Halloween contest. Let's start, shall we? - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Inner background: (Link to image: https://i.imgur.com/IWryZAn.jpg) ** Button color: #32504d Outer Background: (preview to code) (Link to image: https://i.imgur.com/UJXClR5.jpg) Code to Outer: ** Want a live preview? Click here < Yes, I realize this is the same image Toxic used for one of his outers, but I can assure you all that I made this back and had no help from him what so ever in making the outer. I apologize in advance if the lack of diversity between outers is bleak, but with all the images I've tried, this one came out to be the best match in what I believe fits the inner background. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - That wraps my entry for this year's Halloween contest, but I might submit one more set if the thread reaches enough posts in the next couple of days. No guarantees though. I wish all future participants good luck with their entries, and thank you @Bryan and the Trade chat for allowing me and the many others to participate in this lovely contest. This couldn't of have been possible if it weren't for you all being here. Until next time, ciao ~ - M

  5. Hello, As stated by @xLaming, the registration link for xat is currently broken and redirects all users, regardless of being logged out or new, to the to the login page. Luckily though, there is a solution to this though by telling users to follow the steps I have provided below: 1.) Open a new incognito window in your browser. (Ctrl + Shift + N) 2.) Go to any chat of your choosing with the URL ending in ?new. (This is just simply the HTML5 page of the chat and will be essential in resolving the issue.) 3.) Type the word "register" in main and click the the underlined link. 4.) You should now be able to register for xat! After a user has successfully registered their new account for xat, they will be able to login using Flash or HTML5. I hope this guide proves helpful in resolving what issues users have when registering new accounts for the site. Cheers.
  6. Hello, If your chat password happens to have symbols like ! # % or any of the other shift symbols, enter the chat password without them. Eg.) If your chat password was ilovepie100%of^thetime, the password would actually be ilovepie100ofthetime. If that doesn't seem to work, then you will have to unfortunately make a new chatroom since xat does nothing to support the hinting or changing of chatroom emails to help you reset your chat's password. You can create a new chatroom by clicking on the following link provided: https://xat.com/web_gear/chat/creategroup.php
  7. I'm unsure if this club and forum discussion post are still active as they were a couple of years ago, but I'd like to talk about my experience as coming to be a homosexual male. I first found out that I was gay when I decided to date Kondra back in the early days of xat when I saw him wonder around a promoted chat that my friend Shers promoted. My experience with boys beforehand though has always been this awkward and curious state of mind that I've had when I was good friends with them and mostly spent those weekend nights out staying over at their houses. I was hesitant at first to message Kondra after I asked him in PC if he was gay, and to that he replied "yeah lol". I never really was romantic with all the people I've met online and in real life, so this was all new to me and it made me sit down and think, "What would it be like to date a guy?" Ultimately, I decided to give him a chance and keep what we had a secret until I was comfortable enough to come out to my friends and family as gay. When I was asked by other classmates if I had a girlfriend or found a girl to be in my liking, I never really like answering that question they asked me because I was never the child to lie about things to cover things up. Me, being the scared preteen I was, answered with "No, I don't have a girlfriend yet. But, I'm not really interested in having a relationship." and border lining which girls I thought were remotely attractive enough to date so I could get those same people off my back to avoid all further questions about my relationship with Kondra. This also happened to be the time in which I had my first gay experience with another guy who openly admitted to liking me and wanted to date me. To this day, I'm not even sure how he knew I was gay and wanted to openly admit his feelings to me in desperation that I would start dating him over the relationship I was already in. I never did accept his proposal and then one day, he just disappeared altogether. After this rather peculiar experience, me and Kondra continued our relationship in secret until about 2 years of being together. I finally built enough confidence in myself to tell my family that I was gay and was dating a guy for 2 years straight now. With being scared of what my parents would say next, their response was rather calm and understanding with me coming out gay and was fine with me dating Kondra for the time I told them I've been with him. I let out a sigh of relief knowing that my family was accepting of me being gay and only wanted me to be happy with whoever I come out with in the end. But, with all good things must come the bad news. It came with fair warning that not everyone will be accepting as they are and will try to target me for simply liking the same sex that is my own. And they weren't wrong- because I live in a state that is full with churches and rather Southern. Not everyone is going to understand why I am gay. And even with that, I couldn't understand how hard it is to keep a long distance relationship with him being the way we were as teenagers. I had to break it off to save myself from a world of pain that the future would hold, and it broke my heart. I am now 18, going on 19 years old and I still have a lot to learn in this world. I know better now with what kind of relationships I want and I'm happy I took the time to look past the heartbreak to learn from my first relationship and grow as an individual. We both didn't know what we wanted and had a hard time understanding each other, and I didn't want to keep going on with something I'd regret deeply and feel guilty for because I couldn't be there with him. I guess it's true that your first love won’t be the person you end up with, but I know much better with the experience I've had now that I can find the person I truly want to be with.
  8. I've got another chat to report from the user oOizmirLimehmetOo (404119526) with their radio chat http://xat.com/IZMIRLI_MEHMET redirecting to the homepage upon entering the URL. At first I misunderstood their issue, but when I clicked the chat URL they sent, it redirected to the homepage. Here is the user at Help asking for help with their chat being recovered:

    I've got some new work to share with the small hiatus I've been on, but it's better than nothing. Staring off, I have a request from PanicBrendon (904871895) to make a xatspace signature of Sasuke for his boo, ThundercLouds (191949106): And here's a little something that I made on my free time since fall is coming up and I'm in the mood for some Ecruteak City: Original artist: 六助 (Rokusuke) - https://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=14121624 (If you want to use this as your PCBack, by all means- be my guest. ^^)

    Ah, it works now. Thank you for answering my concerns with how the power works with size. But now, I think I might of turned him into a Lugia. . oops! Here he is if anyone was curious to what he looks like now: Despite that though, I'm quite enjoying my new dino boi.

    Great new power this week with the extension time of the last! I got one pretty early too. But, I'm not sure if anyone is aware of this, but the power does not work with the size power at the time I'm reporting this. I've tried both smaller and bigger sizes with the smilies dinoroar and dinoegg, but nothing seems to be showing for the meantime: (For someone like me, I'd like to use the smaller sizes of the smilies so it isn't overlapping my status. ^^) But really, thank you @Crow and @Mihay for the great power and I hope to see more powers like this one in aspects of its quality and design.
  14. Hello, As of now, HTML5 is still in development and many things, including chat connection issues, are many of the things that need to be fixed. An alternate solution for this would be to use a browser with supported flash plugins and availability to connect to the designated chatrooms you are wishing to enter. Here are a few browsers that support Flash as of now: Opera Google Chrome Safari (Mac only) If you end up using Chrome out of these three, you will need to add xat into the list of sites to allow Flash everytime you enter the domain. To allow Flash from not being blocked, click on the lock or "i" in the top left corner of the search bar. From there, where it says "Flash" click on the dropdown box and select "Allow":

    Today has been a really meh day and not one of the best, but I did make a new pcback for to lighten up my mood: The insperation behind this pcback to represent the relationship I have with the moon. It's just so luminous and it comes in just so many different shapes to fill the night sky, almost like how I feel in a way. I also wanted to add some snow because I miss how cold it gets in the wintertime. (Summer is my least favorite season, ngl.) With all the tiredness and burnout I feel with today, I just want the weather to be a cool serenity around me to ease my nerves and just take me away from this loophole I'm stuck in. I hope winter comes soon. . Original artist: https://www.instagram.com/michaelvmanalo/ (Please go support him, he's an underrated artist who makes such wondrous pieces. ^) Thanks again for all the positive support so far in what I post here, it means a lot me and it gives me inspiration to draw from other pieces and try new effects while I'm at it.

    Subcolor Power

    I still believe this is too much for what the power functions to do. Reghide and Subhide both are 65 to 75 xats and to make this power 500 xats just seems a little much for these powers that basically do the same thing in similar fashion to what was suggested. The minimum I can see this power selling for on the store is 100 xats with a maximum of being close to 120 to 150 xats.

    I've got more to add to the dump with the new pcback I made for for @miaa: I actually quite enjoyed making this one with the mountainscape she sent me, adding northern lights and a lil something special for a Selenophile like her. (and before people jump on me, asking what a "Selenophile" is, it can be defined as: (Sources: https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-meaning-of-selenophile, https://greekgodsandgoddesses.net/goddesses/selene/)

    graphical dump

    I've gotten some recent requests to make some graphics, so I thought it'd be a good time to dump them here with the rest of my work. Made a generation 5 Pikachu for P1KA at Help with their name on it: Link: https://u.cubeupload.com/Marshall/P1KA.png And I made PanicBrendon (904871895) from TSR a new pcback upon request: (Link: https://i.imgur.com/Ekm0hVK.jpg) I decided to make it like the olden catroon animations you'd see back then and I honestly think it turned out well. Probably going to update the dump everytime I have some graphics to share so people who are interested can request what they want. Thanks for the support so far in all the work I've submitted and more is likely to come soon. Cheers.

    It was with your template that I was able to do that, but i resized the light source to 1000 x 668 to have it more widespread. I then changed the highlights / shadows to lower the brightness a little because the duplication of the layer image with a lens blur and blend mode using hard light had pitched everything up. So, I had to lower the brightness down to -20 and then place the new light source between Dawn and Piplup to fix everything.
