Contributor Monthly Log - December 2018

  • Advanced Members

On the first day of the new month, someone from the Contributor group will post a thread providing a summary for discussions that were discussed in the Contributor section during the previous month. This is to allow the community to be more informed and have a better understanding of the Contributor group. If you have any concerns or suggestions that you would like to be brought to the attention of the Contributor group, message any of the Contributors and I'm sure they'd be happy to bring it up for discussion if deemed necessary.

You can find our previous logs here.

Ongoing Discussions


In October, it was proposed that certain users could be given access to post more Twitter content on xat's behalf. There have been no new developments this month.

Bring back polls for powers



In September, it was suggested that we revive the 'Poll for Powers' idea, whereby the community is able to vote on a poll and choose a new power to be made. We reached out to Admins for their thoughts and opinions on this matter, and they appear to be open to it, but we have not yet received a definite answer.

Allow users to vote on powers


Similar to the 'Poll for Powers' idea, it was suggested that we allow users or Contributors to provide ideas for new smiley powers that could then be voted on. Users would submit their ideas in a forum topic that would be kept open for a month, for example. Users submitting their ideas would need to provide multiple clear image references that the smiley makers could adapt. Ideally, most smiley powers are 10 designs plus a smiley back. It should be clarified, however, that allowing a vote does not guarantee that a user's power will be created - it's merely to give the smiley makers an indication of what the community wants. There was some positive reception about allowing votes on new smiley powers, but a counter-argument was that it's not necessary as it should already be obvious from existing forum topics which suggestions are popular. It was also proposed that certain users could provide feedback and suggestions for powers before they're released - please let us know what you think. 


Concluded Discussions



A Contributor proposed the creation of a Christmas letter to be sent to the community. This was written and posted in the General Discussion section, and you can find it here. The re-opening of the Christmas chat was decided upon as well. We hope you've enjoyed celebrating Christmas with us this year, and we're open to suggestions for next year.
