Promotion is the term that is used on xat to show that your chat is promoted. The "promo" in promotion means that your chat will appear on the homepage.

This is a feature to help you gain regular users on your chat room. If your chat is nice, fun, has good staff, and abides by the Terms of Service, there is a good chance people will enjoy visiting your group.

Note: Your chat cannot be promoted if you created it less than 7 days ago.

During promotion, you must adhere to the xat promotion rules:

  • All aspects of the chat must be suitable for ages 14 and over.
  • The chat must comply with the terms.
  • The chat must be moderated while it is promoted (no bad language etc).
  • If the chat radio or playlist has tracks with swear words, the scroller must include "WARNING Radio may be 18+" (in the language of the promotion) or on the background just above the scroller. DJs should not swear.
  • If a user causes a bot to say something inappropriate, that is the same as them saying it and they should be banned.
  • Inappropriate visitors should be banned immediately (not kicked).
  • There must be no inappropriate links and no links to binaries (e.g. programs).
  • Chats on promotion must NOT sell ranks (e.g. sell moderator).
  • Chats must NOT be based on religious or political views.
  • At least one owner or moderator must be visible at all times.
  • The chat must be in the correct language.
  • Other chats can be promoted at the same time as yours.
  • The chat must be open to all (not set members only, live mode etc).
  • Do not ban and kick without a reason (e.g. new users - toons or nulls).
  • Do not use /pr unless absolutely necessary; use /p instead. The chat must be open to all. You could lose promotion for using /pr.
