    Feedback is still serving its own unique purpose on xat, just like Help, Trade, Game, Contests and Loja. We are the dedicated chat for users to provide their ideas and suggestions for xat. The chat is open to all users in every language, and we ensure that all opinions are accounted for, at all levels on xat, whenever we are needed. Our chat provides a platform for users, and we ensure that all voices are heard - no registration required!

    Active staff is a problem, of course, and I've been thinking hard about ways to create incentives for users (which may include paying my staff as a last resort). It's definitely a problem when I can't motivate enough people to sit online, and I've been working to address this and find solutions. The staff that actually are active are brilliant though, and I can't thank them enough for their time.

    How can you say it's serving its purpose and then say active staff is a problem? The truth is that if a user goes to the chat, they will be met with no active (or non afk, since you like to idle there, not counting today as you've clearly given a few people a little nod ;)) staff members, and be therefore unable to submit their idea. Whereas the forum is open 24/7 with users active all hours of the day, and Google Translate also..

    The chat won't be retiring or closing, even if the Contributors vote to remove its official status in the future. The chat was originally proposed as tribute before admins granted it official status, which we went with (as anyone would). I'll continue with the project, amongst my other responsibilities (unless I'm forced out by Contributors), and I'll try my best to keep the chat functioning.

    Seems unfair, as when other official chats become dead the chat manager doesn't get to keep it as unofficial. They are redirected to other, more popular chats and the chat manager is all but included in the decision. Petition to redirect Feedback to https://forum.xat.com/forum/7-suggestions/?

    We have a very good foundation for users to suggest ideas, better than any chat in existence, but it may indeed be the case that users simply aren't interested or they have no ideas to share that haven't already been proposed before. As I sometimes say, we can lead the horse to the water, but we can't force it to drink.

     If users simply aren't interested and the chat is unused, then why waste resources and time? Official chats that do not serve their purpose (as mentioned above, and as shown after almost a year of nothing coming from it) should be redirected so that if users go to this chat they be redirected somewhere they can actually share their idea, as creating a chat called Feedback is clearly not as good as an idea as you thought.

  2. I'm sure there already a feature in the works to re-introduce tickle.

     

    Regardless, I find your "Is it safe? [...] owned by Facebook" statement quite funny after all of the recent privacy issues with Facebook? Really?

     

    Also, this means xat has to store your phone number... which I am not to keen on them having, either.

  3. Could actually be useful, sometimes you have to clarify with a staff member why they unbanned a user and with this they could provide a reasoning for the unban. Would be optional just like ban reasons.

  4. Just tested and it seems that the "broadcast" button on the YouTube application disappears a few seconds after opening and doesn't re-appear again.

     

    This should probably be moved to bugs, but then again there's no point fixing the flash version of the app. Let's hope we can see this feature fixed in the HTML5 version.

  5. Do you have any ideas for other smilies? What would the power be called? Could you find some example images/make your own?

     

    Give this post a read and try editing your suggestion to include more information:

  6. Since the whole point of the limit feature was to help curb raids and PC and PM spamming (which was performed by unregistered guests) I don't see why limit even has to exist at all for subscribers.

     

    I guess you could argue someone could make 10 accounts each with a day and successfully raid someone's PC/PM. In that case, we could keep limit for cross-chat communication only.

    Even my bank doesn't block me for connecting from another country.

    Very important and under represented point.

     

    I've never understood why xat feels the need to have so many hoops to jump through to manage your own account (email changes, home location update, list goes on) and have more security measures than I can count on one hand like our xat accounts are the most important possessions in the world when more professional, important websites (like banks) realise that it's not necessary and something like 2FA is enough. 

     

    Account protection that cannot be turned off and makes you held and you can't do anything about it is not a useful security feature.

    @Admin Loading issues with Mac OS safari . 

    Unable to successfully login and am stuck with please wait...

     

    I've verified this is only an issue with safari 

     

     

    update: html5 version of xat works upon login even though the please wait does not change to successful, flash version does not work. 

     

    Can confirm.

     

    Using macOS (Mojave) with Safari (Version 12.1 (14607.1.40.1.4)), "Please wait..." never changes and the chat doesn't load and does not login to flash xat (HTML5 works still).

     

    However, the chat loads and "Please wait..." turns to the successful message with successful login to flash on https://xat.com/web_gear/chat/register.php (old page).

  10. Would be a useful small change.

    It could be used as a macro, like: $stealth=help,1,xat_test,0 with 1=on and 0=off.

    However, it doesn’t need to be this complicated. I would suggest more of a white list concept where only chats present in the macro would activate stealth. 

     

    I.e $stealth=help,mychat

     

    Would mean you’d be stealthed at help and mychat, but not at xat_test.

    That's currently possible already, a single bot can run multiple games.

     

    But, one bot = one user = only that user's games. What I mean is, you can run multiple games with one bot but you would only be able to run those multiple games from a single game dev at once.

    And why would a chat owner want 10 people to be running 10 different bots at their chat? If they want users to be able to play games at their chat they can ask the main owner to add their game to the bot. 

  12. Only requires one bot, the bot just needs multiple games programmed into it. 

     

    Ideally the bot should be able to load a “game module” (I.e. a version of the goApp() function) of sorts and be able to switch between modules. Even better drop the third party bot bs and be able to upload “game modules” to a xat-provided page and run it via GameBot
