    HTML5 Interface Update

    I got the same bug (on Help): All I did was click the "+Help" button. Seems to happen every time. Also, the first tab should be rendered active when the page loads, as many users put their rules here and wish them to be visible by default (or at least add this as an option).

    Seems like the ones defending the name are the ones who speak Spanish, and seems like they may be a bit bias because they understand it fine, and have nothing to say except “there’s nothing wrong with it!!!!!” “You’re closed minded!!!!!” “Stop being jealous!!!” (mega LOL at the last one) which is just playing the victim with no real argument. Changing the name to English is not an attack on your language, culture or anything else. Multiple people have listed actual, real arguments against this and why it could be a problem, with myself even stating popular human computer interaction trends. See those posts. I'm sure it would be a completely different story if this power was (沒有面對) or (لاوجه). Of course these are extreme examples but it seems needed to get through to some people.

    New power to rename smilies (sname)

    I don't understand the point of this suggestion, if it's good for people who don't learn the names of smilies, how are they supposed to use the power if they don't know the name of the smiley they want to create a synonym for? Also, if they wanted to use it to use smilies in their native language, wouldn't they have to create over 1000 pairs in the macro? I don't think this idea really has a purpose.

    Oh please. xat is a UK company, and every other aspect of this website is in English, should we just ditch English and start with Spanish to avoid closed-mindedness? Anyone who's worth their salt in web development and interface design will tell you that breaking consistency is one of the most confusing and frustrating things to have to deal with from a user's perspective, in fact it's one of Jakob Nielsen's 10 usability heuristics (hopefully you've heard of him). One power may not make a difference, but if we start naming powers in different languages it will absolutely cause problems. Fiesta is a loan word and exists in English, but nice try, I guess? xat is not multilingual, it's users are. Sure, Portuguese and Spanish people have managed to deal with it, but as I am sure you know fine well most of them also speak English, with English being taught in schools. Unfortunately, there's no nation wide access to Portuguese and Spanish (at least in the UK). Yes, one will not matter, but let's not start (when it's not even necessary) as I absolutely believe this will cause problems on the English side of xat if it becomes a thing. Amore is also a popular word that most English-speaking people have heard and know. "Cara"... is not. My point is this: if naming powers in different languages becomes a thing, this puts more cognitive load on people who don't speak 2 or more languages (which is a very big no no in any type of human and computer interaction). For example, if someone forgets a smiley name they can guess it. If there's now 2 or 3 languages powers are created in, it becomes impossible. Learning different words in different languages is also harder as they are unfamiliar. Let's not just forget about the fact it's also plain lazy and shows nothing but the lack of creativity put into powers, and specifically the names as of late.

    And translating into a completely different language was the solution? Clearface nface facehide hideface Adding powers with names in a different languages is just going to make this website one hell of a confusing place.

    Are we about to start translating all smiley powers into Spanish instead of adding a 2?

    Any other ideas for name? (Eyeeye) is really low effort and plain ugly just because (eye) is taken.

    Stop smiley frame

    I don’t believe there will be any issue with this, not sure how the layers of the smiley are related to this power but it’s entirely possible to go to a specific frame in the animation stop playing in AS3 with no changes to existing smilies.
  13. And even less people know about this chat, so it’s a moot point really. Promoting it won’t make a difference either, have you seen the activity of promoted chats? Promoting will also provide nothing towards the actual goal to the chat, having 10 users from the xat homepage isn’t going to bring any constructive ideas. You’ll also run into the same problems that many other international chats have. You might claim that they can speak any language, but you’ll struggle to get users to moderate and you’ll end up with English, Spanish and Portuguese speakers and have no means to forward other suggestions that are not in those languages. If anything the forum is vastly superior in this respect as threads don’t disappear in 20 messages and users have more time to dechiper posts that use Google Translate. If you want international suggestions you should spend your time helping translate suggestions on the forum instead of creating Official chats. I don’t find forum topics ever “draw” out and suggestions that have been suggested recently or don’t follow the guidelines get fished out very quickly. I can quite comfortably state that this idea will fail. Good luck.
  14. RE: Feedback chat What is the purpose of this chat? How is this an effective way to gather feedback (a live chatting environment)? Doesn’t the forum suggestions section provide a means to give feedback via suggestion threads? p.s. your copy paste introduction still states that these threads will be closed.
