Contributors are a group of diverse users on the forum who provide their opinions on topics that involve changes on xat that affect the community. Typically, xat staff provide the topics of discussion. Some contributors may be a part of other groups, meaning you will find that most wiki staff and chat managers are contributors. Volunteers and forum moderators are also contributors by default.
In order to prevent the group from turning into an echo chamber, a major goal for xat staff is to keep the group of contributors as diverse as possible. Contributors are encouraged to give their true opinions without worrying how other contributors may perceive these opinions. However, contributors should aim to represent or present the sentiments of all factions of the greater xat community.
Like Volunteers, contributors have no special indication other than on the forum. Sensitive information should not be sent to contributors, and contributors are unable to answer support requests or aid in matters relating to support requests. Contributors are normal users who volunteer their time to improve xat.
