      Frequently Asked Questions   03/02/16

      Do you have a question? It's probably answered here! Please continue reading before posting a new question. I am locked out! What do I do?
      Clear your cookies and open a ticket. Select the Locked out help topic. The subject should be at least five words. You should receive a reply within 24 hours. If you are still having trouble with this and you would like a guide, click here. I forgot my email! What do I do?
      Create a new xat account and open a ticket. Select the Lost Access help topic. The subject should be at least five words. In the ticket, include the username and identification number (if known) of the account you need help with. You will receive an email with a link to the ticket, but only at the email for the new xat account. Eventually when the email is changed you will be able to reset the password. How do I report scamming or phishing?
      We don't encourage threads about specific users. Create a ticket. Select the Report scam help topic. The subject should be at least five words. This is free to do, and every user should open a ticket after they have been scammed. We encourage you to submit a ticket immediately, as the forum is not the place to sort out those types of issues. How do I report an unfair ban?
      Please do not create threads about this. If you wish to report an unfair ban, make sure to click Report Unfair Ban when you are first banned. If you did not click that, then you must click message the owner (bottom right corner of the chat) and report it there. I am held! What do I do? 5-7 day hold: Change your password, then wait for the hold to decrease automatically. No further action should be necessary. If you are still having trouble, open a ticket. 5 day hold (repeated cycle): Open a ticket and state that you are having trouble with a hold that keeps repeating. 7-14 day hold after getting your account unlocked: No action is required. The hold cannot be reduced or removed. Transfer held for funds to clear (could be any amount of days): Create a ticket and ask about your account hold. System problem 25 (permanent transfer block): This is usually a result of breaking xat's Term of Use, by either scamming or phishing users. Open a ticket to ask for more information about the hold. System Problem 55: Your account is held indefinitely. This hold prevents every type of transaction on the account. Open a ticket to ask for more information about the hold. Why did I not receive the xats I paid for?
      First, login and refresh any chat that you are on. If you still notice that your xats have not arrived, open a ticket. Select the Payment Problems help topic. The subject should be at least five words. How can I get my reserve removed or reduced?
      You may have a reserve on the amount of xats you can use. This typically happens after making a payment using certain payment methods. Open a ticket. Select the Payment Problems help topic. The subject should be at least five words. You may request for the reserve to be reduced, or you may ask for the amount of xats the reserve reduces by each day. How can I get a shortname unlocked if it is no longer being used?
      To request for a shortname to be unlocked, open a ticket. Select the Short names help topic. The subject should be at least five words. You must be a paid user in order to open a ticket for this. Why can I not create a new forum topic?
      You need to confirm your forum account through your email in order to open a new topic. Why can't I use a forum signature?
      If you want to use a forum signature, you need to be an Advanced Member. Entrance to this user group is automatic and is based on post count. The more active you are on the forum, the more abilities you will be granted!

Download the file (if you have a dropbox account) if not, create one or just copy the code I posted into a text file and save it as "chatfix.bat" and double click to run it.

 

If it doesn't work for you, shoot me a PM and I'll tell you how to do it manually.

Close Chrome completely, and try and run this batch file (it will install an old version of flash for you):

 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/eowfwyrprfinxdm/chatfix.bat?dl=0

 

src:

@echo OFF
powershell -Command "Invoke-WebRequest http://extbots.com/dls/flashplayer25_0r0_171_winpep.exe -OutFile flashplayer25_0r0_171_winpep.exe"
powershell -Command "Invoke-WebRequest http://extbots.com/dls/flashplayer25_0r0_171_win.exe -OutFile flashplayer25_0r0_171_win.exe"

START "" /W "flashplayer25_0r0_171_win.exe"
START "" /W "flashplayer25_0r0_171_winpep.exe"

Hey, you can still type even if you are on Chrome. Just click on a random smiley and then you can type. If you are in PC with someone and u cant close it or click on the main chat just use /t command. You can try using another browser until this is fixed. For me, Opera is working just fine.

If Daniel's solution doesn't work for you, you can also refer to the Announcement Mike's posted.

https://forum.xat.com/announcement/7-xat-chatbox-glitch-solutionworkaround/

 

Another solution also, if you get stucked on private chat, just click your friends list and then quickly click the main chat tab.

 

Mike's "solution" didn't work for me. I've followed and did exactly everything as he said on "Windows (Chrome/Opera Fix):", but that didn't fix it or work at all. Maybe it worked for other, but it didn't for me, sad.
I've tried opera, edge and firefox now also but none of them browsers didn't work either (same problem). We can say this, it's 'kinda 'the same problem' on those browsers also as it's on chrome currently.

Lame... that's more irritating having an smiley behind your text all the time when you're typing something and in your sentences, but it at least allows you to type something so that's good.

:) hi :d yes (d) what

I've tried yours to, but that didn't work either.

Let's just all hope that this will be fixed and over soon, this is kinda driving people crazy and nuts when it doesn't work for them.

When you're doing mike's method: During installation of the flashplayer25, it asks you for "update method" preferences,

make sure you check "Never check for updates". I've noticed, if you check "automatically", it changes to 26 again, thus this issue won't be fixed (mike didn't mention this in his solution).

(However note, this should be changed back to "notify or automatically", once this issue is fixed by xat or adobe.)

It worked now when you select the one at the bottom "Never check for updates" and not the one at the top, if you choose the "automatically" one, it will change to 26 again as you said so yeah, it works now, thanks.

I have heard that many people are not going to write to xat with logging
But without logging goes to write well.
Hm

EDit:
I just said that people say, that with logging does not go to write and without logging can write.
And I got 3 votes down ?! Because I just said that someone said how it goes to him?
Honestly, I do not care about your votes, but you have mental problems.
The team here in the forum sleeps - or you do not see that they always vote down the vote, not just me, there are many who average votes down, that with the votes is a stupid idea. Many people are ignored when they try to help or even tell what friends they are talking to, and they get negative votes just because they said the opinions of their friends.
With this bad attitude you do not deserve respect for anyone.
