  1. I acknowledged there was a about a month of delays (remaining; it was considerably worse about a month ago) and a solution would be doing tickets and adding another volunteer to those departments. If you read carefully, then you'd notice, that I actually confirmed existing volunteers had to step up their game to alleviate the delays and effectively keep the departments on reasonable response times. Things were being handled prior to this thread being made.
  2. There's about a month of delays and they're being handled. I'm sure you'd understand amongst being busy, having to deal with drama and malicious slander coming from other volunteers isn't exactly effective in keeping up the morale and a steady pace. Someone has been proposed to take the spot and others have been proposed to get involved, retire or move onto less challenging departments. Pending admins. A level of trust is involved, since naturally, those volunteers handle more sensitive information and tools. It's not that they'd necessarily willingly misuse that information or
  3. Oh, the irony. By the way, contributors are voted on amongst contributors, same as volunteers. I do recall a few exceptions in both cases though, one of whom seems to be fighting for absolute democracy. I believe admins very recently expressed their thoughts on democracy and voting on xat. Your logic is both flawed and hypocritical. Sometimes I wonder if even you yourself believe the things you say, or you just say it to stir up more controversy and create unnecessary drama.
  4. You are wrong, there are no head volunteers. Volunteers are equally eligible to complain on one another's activity and overall behaviour. The ticket departments that were a major issue before in terms of response times, aren't as big of an issue now and the volunteers handling those departments are working on the delays with commitment. Adding more volunteers to those specific departments would require the right people with the right habits in terms of proper organization, the way they conduct themselves and overall work ethics. Adding someone with a toxic behaviour would cause a t
  5. Happy birthday!

      Thank you, Andre! : )

  6. On Facebook it's a lot easier to confirm family ties between the deceased and the claimant due to the usage of real names and relatives being tied to their account's about section. Also, the deceased might not want their account to be taken over. I believe Facebook has a setting where you can choose who'll manage your account, once you're gone. More about legacy contract. Apparently you cannot take over a deceased person's account on Facebook, but there are a few options you can choose from, suggesting you pass verification. I quote "To protect the privacy of people on Facebook, we
  7. Have you reported such abuse? I find it interesting you mentioned you've seen "it done plenty", which would suggest that several retired volunteers have tried to scam/phish users. The title is supposed to represent those who have quit on good terms, so I highly doubt there's any truth behind such accusations. If, however, I'm being unfair to assume good faith on our fellow old timers, then please report it ASAP. (I might, of course, have misunderstood you completely and you're describing those who don't have the title, but claim to be retired anyway. It's beyond me how getting rid of this titl
  8. The pope really rustled his jimmies on that one. Can't believe the Vatican church doesn't use Firefox with Christ plug.
  9. h3h3, airforceproud95 and of course Jesus Chatline.
  10. Based on this discussion and the fact that half of its posts have been hidden, I'm not confident we're ready to abolish the group just yet.
  11. That's the idea, considering we already have language based redirection for help and trade chats.
  12. Today I had appointed Sydno as co-main to allow me focus on other things that xat is currently struggling with. I couldn't think of anyone better and more deserving to fill that role than him. Congratulations Sydno and best of luck!
  13. Try disabling your antivirus / anti malware software. If any of their real-time protections is blocking certain javascript content, then you might want to add forum.xat.com to their exclusions.
  14. Disable plugins and enable each one at a time to troubleshoot the issue.
  15. I wouldn't be this pessimistic on the matter and see how it pans out. One active individual can motivate others to get involved, no matter how busy they might be with whatever's going on in their life.
  16. Trust me, it would only complicate things. This would enable tickets to be assigned based on a language and thus considerably cutting down on the work force and people have to rely on a select few (or one individual) to eventually reply to their ticket. Google translate has worked so far and we rarely if ever get people who cannot understand what we're asking. Even if we do, usually rephrasing the question helps to have it produce a more accurate translation.
  17. Among the essays I believe someone brought up the delays in some of the top departments. Hopefully we'll be able to alleviate this issue by introducing a new volunteer there who'll be grinding hard for your satisfactory.
  18. Quite a bit of testing with several languages should be done to challenge either translators, don't you think? Can't switch to Bing with haste, based on one example.
  19. We don't change chat group emails, because we lack the tools to properly verify information that would allow us to link the chat group to its owner.
  20. Only one setting can be applied to a special code? If yes, then this should definitely be changed to support several.
  21. Sometimes you need JavaScript to wish good luck.
  22. Congratulations to all three of you.
  23. 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.
