  1. Sometimes you need JavaScript to wish good luck.
  2. Congratulations to all three of you.
  3. I have neither NOPC nor NOPM and I probably get more PC's from unwanted people than the average user. The ignore feature works just fine for me, should the annoyance become unbearable. What you're suggesting is unnecessarily complicated.
  4. As Brandon and many others have pointed out so far we have different volunteers working on specific type of tickets. That's how it works. However how it's compartmentalized, what tools are volunteers trusted with and who works on what specifically is not disclosed for security reasons. I would like to know why users need that information other than to annoy/abuse specific volunteers on chat. Neither are volunteers to blame. We're in fact volunteers and get very little compensation for our hard work. I'm not saying that I should be getting more, but I'm also not going to quit my day job and hobbies to 100% focus on what xat users expect of me. Could we benefit from recruiting more volunteers? Perhaps. We'll look into it if we decide that's true. That's how it has worked so far and that's how it's going to continue to work. Regarding the compartmentalization - it stays and again it has been pointed out why it makes sense for us to have it in place, regardless of the counter-arguments which I disagree with. For regular users and ex-volunteers it's easy to dictate and speculate what would be more efficient. From personal experience, security and more specifically for the sake of organization it's best to have it remain the way it is. The stress, pain and agony could be reduced to a minimum, if users would make themselves aware of the safe-trade system, specifically the confirm button to double check the trades. Avoiding "trust trades" and loans is also reasonable. If the deal is too good to be true, then it likely is. Another tip from us would be to secure their computer, email and xat accounts. Never enter your xat password on any other site and don't fall for xat currency generators, as there's no such thing. To sum it up.. I'm not blaming the users, however, it's a fact that the "stress, pain and agony" is often resulting from their own greed and/or carelessness. Users requesting for authentication or locking to be disabled rarely have to wait for too long, however, I agree that we could do better in that regard. If there are delays, then we pick up and clear them. Some weeks are busier than others. Currently some departments are delayed and we'll be focusing on those in the upcoming days.
  5. Don't bother opening a ticket. You will not get a cyan pawn.
  6. Congratulations and best of luck to you, Sydno.

  8. Wouldn't it be possible to refresh the account on target chat once the exchange has occurred on dormant chat? Or does it work in a chain, where you keep transferring xats to new accounts and just keep raiding with 1 account at a time (suggesting you don't have more than 1k xats to spread around on multiple accounts)? Sucks if they make bots this sophisticated. However, one solution would be to just enable bypassing captcha for paid users and those with a short name as suggested above. Again, I'm not promoting xats. Just trying to figure out the best method for a good percentage of people to escape captchas.
  9. Yeah, that's actually what I had in mind. I agree with you, good suggestion.
  10. North Korea's concentration camps.
  11. Like any idea, there's room for improvement, hence the discussion. Yes.. the majority of suggestions involve admins, including this one. Definitely a more fair way of handling things. Probably wont work for unknown/private proxies though(?) I didn't suggest this to promote xats. Having a value check seems like a viable solution and probably covers a decent amount of users. Perhaps not as fair, but better than nothing.
  12. Maybe it has been suggested before, maybe it hasn't. I'm sure many of you know how legitimate users are being affected by protections against raids (I know I am). These protections are rather poorly designed and could use some improvement. I propose the ability to bypass all chat protections/captchas for accounts with a value higher than or equal to 1000 xats. This should be enough, considering even the most sophisticated raid bots are unlikely to have that amount of xats distributed to each individual account. Thoughts? Other solutions: link
  13. Trade logs aren't exactly the important part of locked/auth cases, I'm sure other volunteers can relate to that. Considering we don't really rely that much on trade logs and people don't generally keep a note nor remember who they've traded with.. I'm for this idea.
  14. About the lists - let's figure out a way to link the lists in a convenient way, rather then have them merged. In my opinion it's a lot better to have dedicated articles that get to the point right away (xat.wiki/editors and xat.wiki/thx). The introduction (http://prntscr.com/ar0jys) should be expanded to make it clear which is which (but not too much, because we have dedicated articles). The same should be done for xat.wiki/thx as it begins with "This page is used to acknowledge users who have contributed to the xat wiki." - this is inaccurate since beta testers are also listed. Could you submit an edit request on the articles and we'll work from there? Note, that this change isn't something that I decide alone. I cannot guarantee that any of it is implemented.
  15. I don't see what all the fuss is about. It never bothered me to be listed separately and I did a lot on xat wiki. The term "volunteer" shouldn't be taken so literally. It was introduced a long time ago to recognize the people who answer support tickets. We could add additional information to the "volunteers" article, as I assume that's the source of the problem. Would linking the list of editors, special thanks and forum staff there compensate? I would make the links extra bold and beautiful.
  16. Limited powers are sold out in a matter of seconds, this should pretty much answer the question here. Powers are made, because there's a demand for them. xat profits off that demand like any other business would. Suggesting they group new animal ideas under an existing power doesn't make any sense from a business point of view.

    Post bug

    For me it only happens on the main page. There's a fix for this http://forum.xat.com/?asd but it's annoying nevertheless.
