Eine Nachricht senden
Um eine Nachricht zu senden, schreiben Sie eine Nachricht in die Box unten in der Chatbox. Die Nachricht wird an die anderen Benutzer gesendet, wenn Sie die Eingabetaste drücken.
Die Besucherliste ist eine Liste von Personen, die derzeit im Raum chatten. Jeder Name hat eine Chatfigur, und die Farbe zeigt den Status an. Die Figuren sind:
- = Gast;
- = Mitglied;
- = Moderator;
- = (Main) Owner;
- = Berühmtheit;
- = ignoriert;
- = gebannt;
- = xat-Personal;
- = Pink Power;
- = Blueman Power;
- = Purple Power;
- = Gold Power;
- = Everypower-Feature;
Wenn Sie eine Nachricht an eine Person in der Besucher-/Freundesliste leuchtet Ihre Figur grün, um anzuzeigen das Sie ein Gespräch mit der Person führen. Wenn andere Personen eine Nachricht senden werden Sie sehen, wie auch deren Figur leuchten.
Smilies sind Emoticons für Ihre Nachrichten. Sie können Smilies entweder durch klicken auf einen der Standardsmilies über der Nachrichtenbox oder durch direktes eingeben der Smiliecodes. Beispielsweise ist : - ) der Code für den gelben Standardsmilie. Es gibt viele zusätzliche Smilies welche nicht Teil des Standardsets sind, die finden Sie hier. Jederzeit wenn Sie auf einer Chatseite sind und die vollständige Liste aller Smilies (ausgenommen einige Abonnenten-Smilies), schauen Sie am linken Bildschirmrand, wo sich über dem roten X das Symbol für die Smilie-App befinden sollte. Wenn Sie darauf klicken, wird dies die Smilieliste öffnen. Klicken Sie einfach auf einen Smilie und der Code für diesen wird in der Nachrichtenbox erscheinen. Wenn Sie den Code sehen wollen, damit Sie ihn manuell eingeben können, bewegen Sie einfach den Mauszeiger darauf.
Audies sind Soundeffekte für Ihre Nachricht. Ein Audie wird verschickt durch '#' gefolgt von dem Namen des Sounds, z.B. #respberry, #giddy, #ohh. Erscheinen werden diese als Soundsymbol in der Nachricht und automatisch beim Senden abgespielt. Sounds können wiederholt werden, wenn Sie darauf klicken. Sie finden hunderte mehr davon, hier. Beachten Sie, dass Benutzer die die Chatbox-Sounds stummgestellt oder die Noaudies Power besitzen, Audies nicht hören werden. Sehen Sie Noaudies für weitere Information.
Gruppen als Registerkarte
Der Besitzer der Chatbox in der Sie chatten hat womöglich eine Chatgruppe seiner Chatbox hinzugefügt. Diese wird als benachbarte Registerkarte neben dem Haupttab erscheinen. Eine Chatgruppe ist ein geteilter Chatraum, erstellt für einen bestimmten Zweck. Beispielsweise:
- Um ein bestimmtes Thema zu besprechen (z.B. Musik, Anime, surfen, Computerspiele)
- Für eine bestimmte Altersgruppe oder bestimmte Arten von Personen (z.B. um die 20, Studenten)
- Für ein bestimmtes Land und/oder Sprache
Wenn Sie mehr Chatgruppen sehen wollen, schauen Sie in der Gruppenseite nach.
Ton & Radio ein-/auschalten
You can turn chatbox sounds on and off by clicking on the speaker icon on the bottom right of the chatbox. A disabled sign will appear on it once clicked. To turn sounds back on, click again. If you want to turn the sound up or down, hover your cursor over the speaker, then move the arrow up and down to increase or decrease the volume. If you are a main owner of a chat group, you can set all default sounds to on or off by clicking the "Edit Your Chat" button on the bottom right of your chatbox. Then go to "Extra Features," scroll down and you will see "Default chat box sounds to OFF." Check the box next to it, scroll down and click "Update these Options."
If a chat has a radio station, you may click the radio icon to turn it on or off. You may adjust the volume the same way as you can with chat sounds. If you're a main owner, click "Edit Your Chat" then "Extra Features" to set up a radio station. Read more about setting up a radio station here.
Um den Chat zu verlassen klicken Sie die Schaltfläche Chat Verlassen, Sie werden auf der Benutzer Liste als offline angezeigt und sie können dann auch keine Nachrichten sehen oder senden bis Sie wieder Chat Starten klicken oder den chat neu startet.
Receiving/Sending a Private Message
A private message appears in the chat window but has only been sent to one person. It is like being in a room full of people and whispering something to someone that you only want them to hear. If you see a message that has a gold padlock next to it, that person has sent you a private message that only you two can see.
To send a private message to another user, click on their name in either the chat or the Visitor list. On the menu that pops up, click on "Private Message" and a large padlock will appear on the left side of the text box. This indicates that the next message you send will be a private message, to the selected user.
Start/Reaktion auf einen Privaten-Chat
A private chat is a conversation with only two people; it is like leaving a room full of people and finding a private room to talk in. When you are sent a private chat message, a tab will appear with the senders name on it under the message window. It will flash to indicate a new message and the speech bubble will remain green to show that you have not read it yet. Click on the tab and you will be in a private chat with that person. While you are having a private chat with one person, you may also see the main room and other private chats flashing and remaining green to indicate new or unread messages. You can switch between these and maintain conversations with several people at once if you want to. When you have finished with a private chat, move your cursor over the tab and press the red x that appears to close it.
Been Auto-Signed Out?
If you haven’t typed a message for over 15 minutes, the chat box will automatically sign you out. To sign back in, press the "Sign In" button on the bottom right. Owners and Moderators are not automatically signed out, so they should take more care to sign out when they leave to prevent visitors from wondering why Moderators/Owners are not responding to them.
Wurden Sie gekickt?
If you have been kicked out of a chatbox, you will need to sign in again if you wish to continue chatting. There will be an information message that is sent to everyone in the room that says who was kicked, who did the kicking, and the reason for the kick. You will also be "Gagged" (unable to send messages) for 15 seconds after being kicked.
Wurden Sie Verbannt?
If you have been banned from a chat box, you will have received a banned information message, your pawn in the Visitors list will have turned brown, and your name will have changed to "Banned." You will still be able to see the messages being sent (this only applies if the chat doesn't have Banish or Banpool assigned), but the other people in the room will not receive any message you try to send. The ban may be for a limited duration and if so, you could return later. The ban may have been a warning and they may un-ban you sooner if you remain online for a while.
If you believe you have been unfairly banned, you should click "Report Unfair Ban" on the large window that appears upon being banned. This will send a message to the main owner of the chat saying that you've been banned, why you think it's unfair (if you included text), and your email (ff you included it). If the ban happened while you were online, it will send a transcript of what was recently said on the main chat prior to you being banned, and give the chats creator an option to demote the person who banned you.
Personen die Sie als Freund hinzugefügt haben können ihren Privat Chat sehen.
Click your name at the top of the Visitors list, on the right, to set up your display name and avatar. If you are new to the chatbox, you will have been assigned a "toon" name like WuggyBunch and a random picture. These however, are easily changeable.
How do I change my Name?
Geben Sie Ihren Namen in das Feld Name ein, wie er auf der Benutzerliste angezeigt werden soll.
Wie kann ich mein Bild ändern?
To change your display picture, you can choose one of the default images shown by clicking on it. Every time you choose one, you will get another selection from which to choose. If you wish to look at a wider selection of images click the 'more…' button and follow the instructions. Alternatively, you can use any picture you like by getting the "Direct Link" of an image. (you can easily upload images here) After copying the "Direct Link," paste the link into the "Picture" box and click OK.
Wie ändere ich meine Startseite
To add a homepage or set a different one, enter the link to a website e.g. http://xat.wiki in the homepage box, then click OK. If you have a home page specified, whenever you post a message, a small home icon will appear next to your name. If someone clicks on this, they will open the link in your homepage. To remove a homepage, simply leave the homepage box blank and click OK.
How do I turn off automatic sign in on a chatbox?
If you don’t want to be automatically signed in to the chat box on web pages you visit, then you can turn off automatic sign in. Click your name and uncheck "Sign me in automatically." You will have to click the "Sign In" button every time you visit a chat box to appear online. To return to automatically signing in, click your name, check the box again, then click OK.
How do I Reset my ID/user data?
If you wish to reset your ID number and screen name (not your registered ID or account name), right click on any chat screen, then click "Settings." After this, click the little folder icon. You should see a little arrow/gauge that you can move from left to right; move the arrow all the way to the left then press close. After you refresh the chat page or go to a new chat page, these effects will take place. Doing this will remove your friends list, as well as all your data and status in chat group you have visited. So if you do not want to lose all of the data stored (friends list, status etc..) do not reset. If you reset completely then log back into your registered account and your friends will still be able to contact you on that account, but you will have lost all stored data doing this process. Do it at your own risk. When you're done, and you want xat to store the data again, right click on a chat screen, and this time move the arrow all the way to the right. After you do that, click close and it will start to store the data. Anytime you want to reset the stored data, repeat this method.
You can visit the Subscribers Guide for more information regarding this topic.
Click on your name, and at the top right of the pop up box you will see "new user..." Clicking that will make a default name that you can change and switch back and forth between other names you have added. You can have up to five extra names to switch back and forth between. Instead of having to manually change your name, you can switch from the other names you have added. Note: after doing this you can't delete the extra names!
Registering allows you to keep your ID, rank (moderator, member, owner etc), and Friends list on other computers (or after your cookies have been deleted.) You can also get a xatspace, which is your own personal xat profile. Registering also makes it almost impossible for other users to impersonate you, and makes it easier for your friends to tell who you are if you’re on other computers. It also allows you to buy xats and subscription time, or receive them through transfers or trades. On a few chats, you might not be able to join unless you’re registered. Your name also appears higher on the list than non-registered users.
Wie registriere ich mich?
Click on your name in the chat and click the "Register" button. Fill in the required information (email must be valid), and submit the form. Log into your e-mail and click the activation link you received from xat. Afterward, login using your registered name and password. You may need to refresh any chats you're on for the registration to take effect. If you don't get an email, then your email service has not delivered the email. Try opening a Gmail account.
Wie kann ich meine registrierten Namen ändern?
Warnung: Jeder kann Ihren alten registrierten Benutzernamen nehmen, wenn Sie es auf einen neuen ändern.
Click here and put in the username you registered with and your password in the appropriate fields. Scroll down and click "More," and in the Change Registered Username field, type in what registered username you want (as long as it's 10-18 characters.) After this, click “Change User Name” (you may need to refresh any chats you’re on in order for this to take effect.) You can only change your registered name only once every 14 days.
How do I get a short registered name (shortname)?
Instead of having a registered name that is 10-18 characters, you can purchase a Shortname. A Shortname is a registered name that is 4-9 characters long. The Shortnames cost at least 1,000 xats. Generally speaking, the shorter the Shortname, the higher the price. By clicking here, you can see prices of Shortnames or even buy one if you'd like.
Will I keep the same ranks/Friends list if I login on another computer?
Yes, your rank and your Friends list will be restored if you login to your registered account on another computer. You can login by going to xat.com/Login.
Wie ändere ich mein Passwort?
Click on your name in the chat, click the "Register" button, and click the "Change password" tab. Your password should be at least 8 characters long and consist of letters (capital and lowercase) and numbers. The more characters you use, the stronger your password will be. Avoid using personal information like your birthday, your name, etc. You may also want to change your password every 3-6 months to ensure maximum security of your account.
Note: Special characters (!@#$ etc) are stripped from your password when logging in, so be sure just to use alphanumeric characters (a-Z, 0-9).
How do I change my xat ID?
xat IDs are generated randomly. You can clear your browser cookies to get a new randomly generated ID. Otherwise, you can bid on IDs via the xat auction.
Note: xat does not support the trading of IDs.
How can I change my xat e-mail?
Note: This help topic requires you to be a paid user (have made at least one payment to xat.)
If you would like to change the e-mail account associated with your xat account, you would have to create a ticket.
Habe ich mein Passwort verloren?
Click on your name in the chat, and click the "Register" button towards the bottom of your name card. Click the "Lost password/username" tab. Alternatively, you can go to http://xat.com/LostPass. You'll need access to the email you used to register your xat account. After filling in the captcha, enter your email, and a link will be emailed to you. Go to your email and wait for this email (may take up to 30 minutes to arrive.) If the email doesn't arrive after 30 minutes, check your spam/bulk folders. Once you receive the e-mail, click the link and you are able to reset your password.
How to delete my account?
NOTE: If you ever want to register your ID in the future, save the register link to your ID.
1 - Go to http://xat.com/login
2 - When it says LOGIN SUCCESSFUL scroll down and click the more button.
3 - Now you should see an option that says "Delete (your current username here)".
4 - Click that button and it should tell you to check your email.
5 - Use the link in your email to login and click the delete button once again.
- You cannot delete an account with xats/days/powers on it.
- If you just registered your account you have to wait 14 days before you can delete it.
- Keep in mind xat does not support the transfer of IDs so if you get scammed in the process of selling one xat can't help you.
To interact with a person either click on their name on the Visitors / Friends lists or by a message they have sent. This will open up a dialog, which will give you more information about them and options to interact with them.
A private message is sent to only one person and no one else can see it. To send a private message, click on a person on the Visitors / Friends lists or the name on a message someone has sent, and click "Private Message." A pad lock will appear on the message entry window, type your message and press enter. When the message is sent, it will have a padlock next to it and only the person you selected will see it. To send another private message, follow the same procedure again. In some case, Private Chats (see below) can be more useful.
A private chat is a one on one conversation in a separate tab on the chatbox. To start a private chat, click on a person on the Visitors or Friends lists or the name on a message someone has sent and click Private Chat. A tab will appear that contains just you and the person you want to start a private chat with. When you send your first message a tab will appear on their chat box which they can choose to answer or not. Note: You may not be able to Private Chat a user if they have the NoPC power. You can click Powers for more information regarding the special abilities.
Als Freund hinzufügen
If you want to add someone, so you can easily find them and talk to them another time, you can add them as a friend. Click on that person on the Visitors or the name on a message they have sent and click Add as Friend. They will appear on the list in bold and move to the top of their rank. They will also be added to your Friends list, accessible by clicking on your Friends tab at the bottom of the list.
When you return to the chat box at a later time, you can click on your Friend list and see which ones of your friends are online on any chat box, not just the one you are on. You can send them a private chat or private message from your chat box to theirs. If the user has added you as a friend, you will be able to see which chat they are on so you can go there (unless the user has the NoFollow power.) If you want to unfriend someone, click on their name and click "Un-Friend."
How many friends should I add? You can add as many friends as you like but there is no point in adding everyone you ever see, only people that there is a chance that you will want to talk to again. The more friends you have added the harder it becomes to find the ones you really want to talk to.
/f Add a User by their ID
Wenn sie von einem Person ID kennen und möchten ihn als Freund hinzufügen können sie den Befehl /f nutzen, Beispiel:
Dies fügt 124575554 als Freund mit dem Namen JoeBlogs
If someone is bothering you or you just don’t want to see them talk? Then you can Ignore the user. Click on that person on the Visitors or Friends lists or the name on a message they have sent and click Ignore. Their pawn will appear grey in the user list and you wont be able to see any of their messages, and they wont be able to start private chats with you. The ignore is remembered, even if you use the chat box another time. If you want to Un-Ignore them and see their messages again click on the person in the list and click Un-Ignore. Please note that the ignore feature only lasts 12 hours, so when the 12 hours is up, and you are still being harassed or want to ignore them simply Re-Ignore.
Also if you are a moderator or owner you will still see messages from ignored users in the main chat but you won't receive private chats or messages.
SHIFT Ignore: If you hold the shift key down when you press ignore only Private chats and private messages are ignored - you can still see the messages from that person in the main chat.
Schlechte Chat Etikette
When using a xat chatbox, you have to abide by the Terms of Service. But there are specific things that you might do that are considered bad etiquette and will annoy some users.
Fluten oder Spamming
Flooding or spamming is typing random numbers and/or letters for no reason or repeatedly sending a link. This is very disruptive to the chat box and all the users in the chat. People find it very annoying and if you do it you may find you are either banned or Ignored by everyone in the room. Talking in CAPS, using too many smilies or audies in a way, may also be considered as spam or flooding. If you do either of these too much, you may be Ignored or even banned from the chat.
Reden in GROSSBUCHSTABEN
Typing messages with CAPSLOCK on often annoys people, it is used to say that you are SHOUTING what you are saying. You can type in CAPS if you want, unless a chat's rules say otherwise, but you should expect that people will add you to their Ignore list. It is best saved for when you are really shouting something.
Zu viele Smilies
Using smilies livens up messages and makes the chat more fun but if you keep on sending them it can be annoying and you will soon be on everyone’s ignore list.
Too Many Audies Sound Effects
The odd sound effect can make a chat fun but if you keep on sending them, it can be annoying and you will soon be on everyone’s Ignore list.
You may create chat groups or accounts relating to your services outside of xat.com. However, you may not go to other chat groups and promote your services. This is prohibited in the xat Terms of Service. In addition to this, other chat group owners tend to dislike such behavior and it may lead you to have a ban from individual chat groups.
Fragen um Moderator, Eigentümer, Mitglied etc.
Owners of popular chats are often bombarded with requests for people to be made moderators, or other ranks, and most will just Ignore anyone who asks, or give them a warning kick. If you want to be a moderator on a chatbox; you should be active on the chat, make friends with users, and try to be helpful to other users. This is the best way to become a rank on a chat group.
Asking strangers for free xats/days/powers
People have to work hard for their money, and to get xats/days/powers. With this being said, they likely won't give it away to people they don't even know, unless they specifically say they're giving it away (such as a Contest or competition.) If you don't know how to purchase xats, you can do so by registering, clicking your name, and clicking "Get xats".
