You can now use your xats to buy a short registered name for your account (4-9 characters). The cost varies, typically 1,000-25,000 xats, but may be more for exceedingly popular or common term. An account can only have one short name at a time, and if you change your name you'll lose your old name. You can not transfer short names between accounts. A short name puts you higher on the visitors list. You can't use any words in a short name that you couldn't use in a normal registered name (For example help, staff, or offensive swear words). You can check prices, availability, and buy a short name at http://xat.com/web_gear/chat/BuyShortName.php .
