  1. Thank you! Out of curiosity, what would be the minimum amount of followers I would need to get this beautiful pawn?
  2. Don't wanna brag but I consider myself a bit of an influencer so let me know when applications are open I love the idea of allowing volunteers, developers, smiley makers and resellers to have this pawn, but I wouldn't call them Influencers, unless its because they influenced this decision in some way. Honestly giving it out to non-influencers sort of undermines the purpose of it being for influencers, but I guess user feedback can't influence your decision.
  3. Come back soon (sman)

  4. Purple I'm using Dark mode and I can't see colour changes before posting so my text better be purple or else
  5. Announcements and promotions via email has been in discussion since February? Don't get me wrong I'm not saying that's bad, I'm just a bit confused why there doesn't seem to be much progression in the discussion (at least not shared in the Monthly Logs from February/March/April). Is there an area that Contributors are disagreeing on or perhaps a lack of feedback for if this feature is essential? Because this would be relevant information to put in the Monthly logs that users could then give feedback on. My personal opinion is that the feature would be beneficial, especially for people who use xat regularly. From what I currently understand Announcements would refer to - changes made to xat, updates for HTML5 and new powers. Then I would assume that promotions would be to promote events such as competitions that are posted on the forum or at official chats? As for Appeal against decisions to block xat access in Turkey, I would say that it depends on whether xat has a sufficient amount of active Turkish users. If there aren't many users, then from a business standpoint it wouldn't be worth appealing it if you're at a loss financially. Though that's their decision so guess we'll wait and see on that one. With Help chats on auto-promotion, I agree that it should be evaluated on a case-by-case basis rather than everyone gets auto-promotion. I feel that the chats that have more active and experienced staff should be prioritized as users will ideally want to have help with their problem asap. Though it may be beneficial to look at using Banner advertisements (If that's still a thing) as another way of allowing other Help chats to get promoted. Looking at what has been proposed for xat Annual Budget for the year of 2021, it sounds somewhat similar to what Contests/Game chat used to have for some of their competitions. This Budget would definitely be beneficial for contests (Especially seasonal events), but I could see it being used towards promotion costs for some official chats too. Not sure if the Help chats have something in place already so forgive me if this is already a thing, but there could be a 'Helper of the Month' award to give incentive for staff members to be active & helpful. Again this probably depends on what the Manager of that chat wants to do, though I'm interested to know if all the official chats included in this budget would be allocated the same amount or would certain chats get less/more? I would assume the latter, but still interested to know.

    Ice Pawn

    It'd be cool if it came with some exclusive hats that customized the pawn shape to some ice sculptures, I think the overall idea that you have is pretty chill. I'm sure it'd be a breeze to make with the concept examples and it looks nice
  7. Update: I'm still not advanced member... but I will do it!! I just need to ponder over a bowl of cornflakes, perhaps I will suggest a cereal idea soon thank you for the inspiration xx
  8. Dogs are amazing!!! I really hope this power gets made, it's one of the best ideas I've seen in a long time. It has left a deep impression on me, you're truly a genius coming up with such a unique concept. I hope to see you shake up the suggestion community with more innovative ideas :)
  9. Please provide visuals in your main post, in future refer to this when creating new suggestions!
  10. I don't really understand the idea, could you explain it a bit more? From what you've typed it sounds like you want more smilies allowed in our name or do you mean an effect over letters? A visual example might help to explain the idea better as well. So for instance, if you have the letter F and had flowers appear in it.

    Power VIKINGS

    I believe that Viking related smilies already exist from powers such as Fantasy, Quest, Quest2 and so on. There's probably more, but not a dedicated power at least. I mean I did find something Viking related, this is a Sticker power called Magnus that seems to be loosely based off Vikings. https://util.xat.com/wiki/index.php?title=Magnus Personally, I would argue that sticker doesn't do Vikings enough justice though. As for pawns (hat#b) comes with beer, but not as you visually created. I'm sure Vikings hats previously existed, but that may have been a limited hat when those powers got released. Think they re-released some of the hats for a limited time during a hat anniversary or something a few years back, so it would definitely be possible to do the Viking pawns as they already have the designs somewhere. The visuals give a good feel of the type of power you envision and I could easily see them making a power like this as they already have powers like stoneage, spartans etc that cover different time periods. If I bought powers and liked Vikings, I'd probably buy this. I do hope there is more feedback on the post though, compliments are great, but I think it would give the idea some actual attention if there was a constructive discussion about the idea. TLDR; Good visuals, similar powers do exist, but its own power would be fine.
  12. Accidentally mistook this as a post from the Forum Games section based off some of the off-topic comments, honest mistake I promise . The suggestion isn't necessarily bad, but I feel like it needs more to it. Rather than just taking fonts that generators use, maybe you could be able to choose a style of font and save it so that you have a preset font and name to make it easier if you fancy a change of style . I'm sure that xat used to let you save your name, but maybe it doesn't save them anymore?

    Ah I apologize, it would seem that you have quoted my post multiple times? No worries, I will simplify it for you. The important stuff is in bold, ignore the rest if its too much to read. Graphic Subforum called Portfolio. Only allow creator of Portfolio post to respond to post, no need for friends to flood with misleading compliments. Graphic Designer Role not needed to be known as a Graphic Designer in the Graphics community. Have a lovely day

    My previous post seems to have disappeared (Box haters be out there folks!!! jk I love you pls don't remove this ). As I stated previously I do agree with this idea as I would like a Box Designer role one day, but this is where the issue lies. If people like me can have a Box Designer role then we can have anything ridiculous and that is where it must stop. I believe that a role is not needed to demonstrate a persons abilities, as previously stated you can use a portfolio to do this. At least with roles like Volunteer, Moderator, Contributor, Wiki Editor etc you could say that they have some sort of use. Perhaps a dedicated section in the Graphics subforum called Portfolios could be created, where users can post their previous works to try to gain customers. I'm aware that people do post their works anyway, but I think it'd just be more organised to have a dedicated section created. Obviously this could be abused by users getting their friends to flood their post with comments like "omg you are so amazing at box designing", but then posts could be disabled for everyone except the original poster so that there is no unfair bias. There is one important thing that everyone should take from this discussion... You don't need a role to define you, define yourself. You want to be a Box Designer? Then be a Box Designer, you don't need a role for that. A wise person once said Just do it! So yeah just be whatever role you want to be and don't worry about having some colour role next to your name that could say Box Designer.. kthxbye
  15. The most famous thing in my country is food because it seems to be something that everyone likes to get everyday
  16. My favourite helper is @Ethan because he was my first follower on forum. Thank you!!!!
  17. I left xat in 2018 and I have returned occasionally for nostalgia. Started using it again the last couple of days and most the people I knew from xat just use Discord now, which I personally think is much more user friendly though I could be biased lol. I noticed that xat has changed quite a bit with HTML5, but I think there is still more improvements that could be made if they expect to retain users and gain more in the future. I will probably stop using xat soon and end up returning in a couple of months to see how things have changed, hopefully positive change but who knows.
  18. Decided to listen to this classic song today, next song tomorrow bye amigos
