We have started counting down the days until Christmas. Below are 12 great Xat Christmas smileys for your chats GLINE power; best of all, they’re free!
I hope you like the 12 smileys that we have picked. If you would like to use this list feel free to copy and paste the following line:
Halloween is here and it’s time to get busy scare-ifying your chat. Clearly you can start by choosing a spooky Halloween chat background, but why not choose just the right smileys for your GLINE power. If you’re stumped and can’t quite decide on which smileys to use here are our choices for the top 12 Xat Halloween themed GLINE smileys (note that GLINE requires that you use “normal” non-combo smileys).
1 & 2 (vampire)(gst)
Ahh, Halloween classics! Where would we be without the undead.
3 & 4 (dead)(scb)
How about the “dead”?
Perhaps the scariest of all Xat smileys.
6, 7 & 8 (shock)(aghast)(omg)
I’m not sure what these smileys were subjected to but their expressions clearly point to something scary and disturbing. Only 42 knows for sure.
What’s the backstory here? Why has this smiley had its mouth taped shut?
What sick contraption has this smiley endlessly rolling. One thing is sure, he’s not happy about it.
All 12 for the GLINE power:
It seems that our original guess on what Xat’s new Gline power may be a definite possibility. The image below was posted to the Mundoxat.com forum and presumably it came from the Help chat.
Although it looks like an obvious fake, it did get our wheels turning and once again we turned to Google.com to see what we could find. I’ll paraphrase from a Wiki article on G-line:
“…A G-line or global kill is a global network ban applied to a user.
Whenever a G-lined person attempts to connect to the network, either the services or the daemon will automatically disconnect the client, often displaying a message explaining the “reasoning” behind the ban.
G-lines are normally applied to a user who continues to abuse the network by connecting to a different server. G-lines are often regarded as an extreme measure, only to be used in cases of repeated abuse when extensive attempts have been made to reason with the offending user. Therefore, especially on larger networks, often only very high ranking global operators are permitted to set them.
G-lines are typically set as *@IP or *@host, with the first being the better option. G-lines do still wait for an ident response from the connecting user but immediately close the socket once the user’s IP is compared to the G-line list and a match is found…”
It might be a bit too techy but in short, Gline is looking like it may be a banning feature of some sorts. Maybe a more extreme extension of Stricter banning or, if one reads between the lines and looks at it in more general terms, maybe a way to have more precise banning control over your own chat. We still don’t know for sure
What is Xat’s new Gline power? Well.. although we aren’t sure we know that most of you, like us, can appreciate good old fashion speculation.
We’ve decided to turn our attention to our good old friend URBAN DICTIONARY and have come up with the following:
A quick read over options 1, 2 and 3 leaves us feeling pretty confident with only one option (hint: clearly it isn’t option three). We feel that Gline MAY have something to do with banning a troublesome user across more than one chat. Have you ever had to deal with someone so bad, obnoxious or otherwise that you’ve had to ban them from each of your chats, one-by-one? We have and it’s not fun! Could Gline possibly make it easier to do just that? :S Again, we aren’t sure.
We’ll just wait and see what Xat has in store for us
