We don't encourage threads that pinpointing specific users. You can report the user by clicking on their avatar and then selecting "Inappropriate" at the top. You may also create a ticket, however only users who have purchased xats can do this. If you create threads on this issue, they will either be deleted, or edited to remove screenshots. Do not create threads about scammers, send all proof and information directly to a volunteer or via the ticket system.

4. I want to report an unfair ban
Please do not create threads about this. If you wish to report an unfair ban, make sure to click report unfair ban when you are first banned.

A ticket cannot be opened for you in this case.

9. Procedure for reporting unfair bans on any chat group
Please do not post any reports of unfair banning on this forum. This is not the place to deal with that issue, you can better get your issue resolved by clicking inappropriate (bottom right) of the chat group, or you may use the message button (bottom right of the chat group). The message button sends a message to the main owner, if the main owner is the one unfair banning, or is not willing to deal with the situation then you may use the inappropriate button.
