It's been a long time ... XAT is dying - question is ... WHEN?!

This post will be completed within 3 days Hello. I'm Aisha. I have been on xat since February 2009, known by many. I have helped peopl...

Matchban now Limited!

The Matchban power became limited yesterday at 11am GBT time, with 10,300 being sold!

The power then reached 550-600 xats on Trade 10 hours later! The price now stays at 450-500 xats, though the highest price is 550.

Keep updated with the Contests page once a week, as there may be some upcoming contests coming soon!

Matchbans second release!

The LIMITED power Matchban has made a second return to the store at 400 xats each!

Here is a picture of it when it released in the stores:



The power will be unlimited for about 36 hours, but in order to complete it you must complete a quiz. Completing a quiz lets you buy one matchban.

Of course, there will be questions answered and a summary of the power...

Summary
This power has a similar motive as nerd, complete a quiz in order to buy the power. However, the quiz is much longer than the previous one, and we're going to show you the questions you'll get. Note: Questions tend to get repeated, so we won't give you every one.

Key words in quiz...
Phising - A site that looks like an ordinary site but has a few minor changes. Watch the link closely.
E.g. http:///www.xat.com/login
If you look at the link closely, you'll see there's an extra '/', when a normal link would be... http://www.xat.com/login 

Question 1:

Why? As you can see, It's a regular login page. If it were a phishing site, It would say email instead of xat name in the username column.

Question 2:
Why? He may say that he'll direct you to a login page, but as you can see, It's most likely going to be a phishing site. If you are to login, only to go to the original page: http://www.xat.com/login
Note: The link takes you to the official login page when you click it. Sweet, huh?

Question 3:

 Why? There are only a few xat staff who are on xat, especially on a chatroom. An admin also would never ask for your xats / days / powers, especially since they can grab as much as they want. (Assumably)

Question 4:

Why? The Trade System always works. If somebody is saying that It's broken, then It's obvious that they are attempting to scam you. Only use the transfer system if you are giving a gift, as they can easily log off after you have transfered them your xats / days.

Question 5:

 Why? You need to be very careful about this one. It's quite obvious to see, but a user tends to put the days in the xats column. People usually sell purple in xats, though It's a bit harder to see the scam. You can tell who would do this scam, depending on the price they do.
Note: 1910 days is equal to 24830 xats, which is fair.
Question 6:

 Why? The link that they would give to you is most likely going to be one that's a phish site.

Question 7:


Why? You can see that in the username column it says 'Email' instead of 'xat name'. Like said in the first question, that would lead to a phish site, as xat would never ask for your email password.

Question 8:

Why? That system would probably mean that the user is trying to cheat. Don't proceed if you do, as you may get some concequences, even if you haven't done anything.

Question 9:

 Why? If you just show the conversation, we won't know who that person exactly is, and when it happened. It's best to have a screen shot of when it actually happened, the ID of the person, and the time it was. (even if you're in a different country)

Question 10:

 Answer: Report to chat moderator / owner
Why?
  1. It's against the rules to sell programs, epecially if it can hack you loads of xats.
  2. The program could be a virus, or a way to get your xats and days.
  3. That person can be reported to the xat admins and their IP will be banned forever.

Question 11:

  Why? The person who is theatening to hack you is most likely just bluffing and is all talk. Though xat aren't responsible if you are scammed or hacked, It's best to report the person to a chat moderator / owner, put the user on ignore or report them to Support as the admins can deal with them easier.

Question 12:


Why? This time, instead of the username being different, the link is different. Can you see how it has a set of numbers after the http://? An original xat login link has no numbers in it, especially as it doesn't have xat.com in the link.

Question 13:

Why? 1 day is equal to 13 days, so 100 days is 1300 xats. Also, like said before, the Trade system always works, so if a user is saying that It doesn't work and to transfer, you know that it will be a scam. It's best to report him to a moderator or owner on Trade.

Question 14:

 Why? You are most likely not going to get someone giving you 'free xats' without it leading to a Scam. Don't trust anyone who says this, even if they try be your friend for it. You can't trust anyone completley, not even your friends.

Question 15:

 Why? This time, the link on the page says 'www.xat.com/br'. The br in the link is the scam, so don't login your page. It's always best to check the link first, and the person who's giving you the link.

Question 16:

 Answer: Report them.
 Why? This is an obvious answer. Especially if it's someone random asking you, the answer is that they're going to want to either make your xat account their own, or steal something personal from you.

Question 17:

 Why? The link on the login page now says xat.com@. The @ replaced the / concluding with it being a scam, as a normal http link would never have a @ in it.

Question 18:

 Answer: You are careful and check the trade and see that he entered 5 xats instead of 5 days and report the user.
Why? People who always give extremely good deals are the most obvious scammers. Sometimes, they sell something really cheap in order to get something they really want, as they are desperate. Depending on the power and how cheap they sell it, always be aware of your trader.

Question 19:

 Why? If you did do an IOU (I owe you) with somebody, they will probably not give the rest of the xats when they next come online, and put you on Ignore. If they don't have enough xats, don't risk it with them.

Answer: X out of the trade app completley and restart the trade app (to get the answer correct)
But the other answer doesn't neccasarily mean that the person's the scammer. Read the reason why!

Why?
1st Option: This is a great oppotunity for the other person to try and change their deal, in order to scam you.
2nd Option: Sometimes, someone may type their password wrong, or forget it. If this happens, give them a few minutes just to retype their password again. If this happens more than 3 times, then leave the trade. It happens to me all the time.

Question 20:

 
Why? If you are buying / selling an ID from somebody, that is a huge risk that you are willing to take. People are usually scammers like this, telling you to go first. If somebody is selling you an ID for much cheaper that it actually is, that is also a huge scam, especially since xat are not involved with ID trades. Here is a rough guide on how much a certain ID is...

9 digits        500 - 1000 xats (depending on if the ID is repeated or not)
8 digits      2000 - 11000 xats
7 digits     85000 - 185000 xats
6 digits  200,000 - 300,000 xats
5 digits  400,000 - 500,000 xats
4 digits  500,000 + xats

Question 21:


Why? The person is obviously not 42, and the link that he is sending you leads to a phish page, as you can also tell.

Question 22:
 Answer: Report the user to the chat moderator/owner
Why? There is NO such thing as a user able to double powers. People who do have double powers bought another set of them. If a user offers to double powers, say to them: 'then why don't you have double powers?' or 'Double your powers first and show me you can do it'.

Some questions are similar, but I have given you a brief idea on what to expect. There are a total of 29 questions in the quiz. Once you complete it, this is what comes up:

Each time you complete the quiz, you are able to buy a total of 1 matchban power. If you would like to buy the power again from the store, you need to complete the quiz again! Don't worry, the questions will all be the same or similar (All about scamming and phishing) 

and voila!

Also watch out for...
  • An official page with a guide on how to do the following: Matchban, Spaceban, and Snakeban!
  • There will soon be a contest which involves matchban for xats, days, powers, and ranks on chat!

Matchban releasing later today...

The limited group power Matchban is going to make another appearence later on today.

Previously, 2,000 matchban powers were released in the store at a very late time, (11pm gbt), at 600 xats each. In order to purchase the power, you were needed to complete a ban. It sold out in 20 minutes.

The power then became 1200 - 1400 on Trade. Now, because the power is releasing soon, it is 900 - 1000 xats.

What do you know about the second release?
The power will be at a slightly lower price than it was when released before.

New theme?

Hey guys!

Because the old theme was more club penguin ish, I decided to try out a new theme! It may look messy at first, but hopefully in a couple of weeks, It'll look just right!

Comment what you think!

Matchban released!

The new Limited power, Matchban was released almost 24 hours ago at 600 xats.

2,000 of these powers were released, and in order to purchase a power from the store, you are needed to complete a 6 hour ban.

Like with all new powers, you are probably wanting to know information about this power. Luckily, we have all the information we can gather like all other powers!

What does the power look like?
The power above is what the power looks like. The sparkles make the power look pretty good, doesn't it?!
How many matchban powers were released?
2,000 matchban powers were released, and more will be released next week. (just like Spaceban and Snakeban), but sadly, we don't know how many yet.

On the second release, will the price stay the same?
No, during the second release of Matchban, the price in store will reduce slightly, my guess is 500 xats instead of 600.
How does Matchban work?
When you are matchbanned by somebody, you must complete a matching game in order to get yourself unbanned. There are a list of smileys, and you must connect 3 of them to make them disappear. Make all of the smileys disappear and you will become unbanned. The aim is to make all the smileys disappear in the fastest time.
So, now do you know much more about the Matchban power? Complete our survey soon on what your favorite ban power is! Here are the choices if you forget...
  • Matchban LIMITED
  • Snakeban
  • Spaceban LIMITED
Also, there may be a few contests in the upcoming future that involve these powers, as we are crazy about these powers, and are the latest craze right now!

Remember to comment what you think of the Matchban power! 

Next Power Matchban!

The next power will be the Limited power Matchban!

This power will be a power that is like both, Spaceban and Snakeban.
Testing has not begun yet on the power. More information will be posted either tomorrow or the day after!

Keep updated for all the information!

Note: Try out our latest poll later on, about your favorite power: Snakeban, Spaceban, or Matchban!

My power suggestion: Angelban!

Earlier today, I had decided to make a new suggestion for a power.

My past suggestions were quite successive, I had the Summer power and the New Year power (which had reached 80 votes!)

My new power is called the Angelban power!
I'll put the description of what the power would be like here...

Angelban will be a power that is like both, Spaceban and Snakeban.

Aim:
You must fly your angel all the way up to the sky, avoiding obstacles that come in your way. The obstacles would be rocks, and things falling out of the sky.
 
The price of the power would probably be 1,000 xats, and will be a limited power.
Some will release on the first week, and more will release a week later!
If you liked spaceban and snakeban, then I'm sure you're willing to give Angelban a go!
Note: You DON'T need the Angel power to have this power.
What do you think of the power I've suggested? Comment your opinions below!

Note: If you can come up with a good power suggestion, make sure you tell me! If I really like the idea, I'll pay you 200 xats! (You can only come up with one idea however)




Kpeng power released!

The new power, has been released for 200 xats!

The power had released in the stores about an hour ago, and will be UNLIMITED! Here is a picture of what the power looks like:




Kpeng is a power like gkaoani, etc. With this power, you can have penguin themed smileys.
For those who don't know what gkaoani smileys are, It's a Japanese type of thing. You can tell by the eyes for one thing.

Do you remember our last post, when we asked someone what they thought of the power? Well, this time, we asked Carbon who goes on Jmann93shangout what he thought:

It sucks, the only reason I got it is because I wans allpowers and the pawn.
 As you can see, everyone is giving it negative breifs. What do you think of the power? Comment now!
Note: Also keep in touch with our poll about your favorite gk power! (Poll ends upcoming thursday)

Kpeng next power!

Hey guys!

I was just logging into xat, when I had discovered that the next power was going to be Power 138 'Kpeng'.

Here is a picture of someone with the power:


What do you think the power is going to look like? The power will NOT be limited. We don't have much description of the power, but It's most likely going to be penguin smileys like Gkbear, etc.

Sadly, we do not have a picture of the power either. The price, we do know, will be expensive on Trade, but we also don't know the cost on the store.

Here is what Nikki  xSouLKiLLer (110952980) posted about the new power:
The new power is going to fail, because all of the GK powers have failed.

And here is what I think of the power:
I also think that kpeng is going to possibly fail, thank goodness It's not limited. There were 2 limited gk powers that you could profit from: Gkpanda and Gkaliens. However, Gkaliens profited after being 700-800 after a year (750 in store), and Gkpanda profited because it was 200 in store.

Note: When possible, more information will be on the next post!

Nerd Power 139 Released!

Hey guys!

Last night, the Nerd power was released to the stores! Now, I'm sure there are many questions that you would like to know, so read here to learn Everything!

1) Prices and how it has been released...
Nerd has been released in the stores at 200 xats each. It has become unlimited for 24 hours, and then will become limited.








2) How do I buy the power?
You may be wondering, 'Why aren't I able to buy the power?' It may say, 'You need to complete a quiz to buy this power'. That's also why not many people can buy from store. Luckily, this post will explain to you how to get all the questions correctly to get the power...







Step 1: Type in this URL in the HTTP navbar - http://util.xat.com/quiz/?id= (Your registration number for xat goes after the 'id=' so will be like this...)
http://util.xat.com/quiz/?id=89694323 < 89694323 is my registration number.
Once you have done that, you should get a page like this:


Step 2: Complete the quiz
I thought that there was no difference at first, but I got it after a few minutes. Look carefully, as I have highlighted what you need to look at and the answers to do.

This is NOT a phishing page because it is the normal link that you use to login to your xat account. Now, look carefully at the next one...

The link on this one says xat.com.br instead of the original xat.com. Generally, you need to always look out closely, in case someone gives you a phish site. This can help you in general.

All the questions are just this, but sometimes they may switch the Yes and No answers around. Just don't rush and you'll get all of them. There are 5 questions altogether.

Once you complete the quiz, you can buy only 1 nerd power from the store. If you want to buy another, you must complete the quiz again. If you are wondering the price on Trade, it is between 205 - 215 xats.

Now, here are the smileys in order, from left to right...
(nerd)(aplus)(bowtie)(brain)(coder)(gates)(nglasses)(nsci)(phone)(read)(calc)





I hope that ALL your questions are answered about the Nerd Power, as this is probably the only blog where you can get all the advice and images from.

What do you think about the Nerd power? What price will it be? Comment your thoughts below!
Note: Don't buy too many, as it may end up like the Stoneage power, but we can't predict the price and how many altogether will be bought, so please don't ask!

Some of the Dumbest powers...

Hey there!

I was looking on the power page, and I was seeing what I thought was some of the silliest powers. I'll name them from least to most. (I'll name 3)


1) Nofollow






Nofollow is a good power, because if someone keeps on following you, you can acticate this so they don't know where you are. 




If your friends wanted to find you, they wouldn't know where you were. This can be annoying, and if you have a power like Num in your name, people may think you're a stranger and take you off their list.


2) Subhide
Subhide is good because you can trick your friends into thinking you have no days. I know it's a stupid pro but there isn't really anything good about this power, other than It's cheap.
3) Shuffle
