    Privacy is a noun and by definition (Google) is the state or condition of being free from being observed or disturbed by other people. Sensitive info doesn't have to be exposed for your privacy to be invaded. If someone pays to see something someone else doesn't want to be shown, it's an invasion of their privacy.

    If you want to be pedantic, it's actually a legal term and unfortunately isn't as simple as "seeing something someone else doesn't want shown".

    The intrusion into the personal life of another, without just cause, which can give the person whose privacy has been invaded a right to bring a lawsuit for damages against the person or entity that intruded.

     

    An otherwise non-public individual has a right to privacy from: a) intrusion on one's solitude or into one's private affairs; b) public disclosure of embarrassing private information; c) publicity which puts him/her in a false light to the public; d) appropriation of one's name or picture for personal or commercial advantage.

    Unfortunately, your xats don't come under the law and this power would create a just cause regardless and therefore would not constitute an invasion of privacy. ;)

  2. I don't know if I'd go as far as an INVASION OF PRIVACY but I definitely don't see why I would ever want to know how many xats someone has.

  3. There could've been other credit card related smilies, for example a smiley swiping their card or using contactless. Possibly a smiley that opens its wallet to show how much money they have.

    That is gambling and is not legal in the U.K.  

    Of course gambling is legal in the U.K?? The only real restriction is that if there’s a possibility that you can’t win anything worth your bet, then it’s illegal (and age, of course).

    In this suggestion, you would buy a power to access to a spin that gives you free rewards regularly. There is no gamble, you buy something and you regularly win something. There's no loosers, no bets, no risks, hence why it is not gambling and should be totally legal.

     

    This is still gambling, it’s a game of chance. You spend, say, 500 xats to win up to something worth 10,000 xats. However, this is allowed under U.K. law and I’m sure would also be considered low stake or prize gambling which has no age restriction either. 

     

    If this was to be made, a power that would give you free daily spins wouldn’t be very profitable for xat, it should be a one time purchase that gave you a random power, much like loot crates in CS:GO. There should be no legal issues surrounding it as... CS:GO seems to have no issues. Other games like League of Legends also have systems like this which are available to everyone.

    Can anyone explain the real need or function for this power? 

    It’s not exactly rocket science, people buy NoPC so that they’re not bothered by random users private chatting them, however is someone is registered or subscribed there’s a higher chance that they have a legitimate reason to be private chatting you.

     

    Let’s say you’re main on a chat and you don’t want toons PCing you with random stuff, but registered users may actually have an issue to raise or something legitimate.

  6. Why would anyone ever need this though? If I need any of this information I would already be using xat and there would be a bot in the chat, or a website open in another tab that does all of this.

  7. So if you’re banned you need to enter a password to sign into the chat? In what scenario would you give the banned user the password? If you don’t want banned users to be able to see users/messages in your chat, then get banish and banpool. 

     

    Your suggestion doesnt help with users unbanning themselves either... as they’re not banned.
