To change your character you have to press on your profile and then on your character. You can change your character as long as you have karma for that. Each time you change it, you will be charged by amount of karma shown on the screen.

11. If I select a new character, will I be able to get back the old one?

Your old character might be picked by someone else in your social graph. If that happens, you will not be able to select your old character again. We do not recommend you to switch from the upper class characters to lower ones.

When your Super Powers expire, your account will get back to previous state with Standard Character and Standard Messages Color. Prolong your Super Powers to recover both the Character and the Color. It is recommended to prolong super powers within 24 hours after expiry.

To use the 'Go' code, you would post it in any chat room. The 'Go' codes are case sensitive.

If you use AntiChat daily, have leadership skills and a minimum of 10 000 karma, you can try to apply for a mod. We do not give you any promises. In most cases your application will be rejected. To apply, contact any existing moderator in any public chat and ask them to help set you up. All moderators have a 'Moderators hat' in their Artifacts section.

15. I was sent to Prison. Why?

You go to Prison (Jail). That means you were banned automatically for breaking the User Agreement, you signed electronically when started using the app: https://antichat.me/en/useragreement.htm

If the system decides to lock you in Prison, you will be banned in all chats. Next few hours you will have to spend in Prison, chatting to other prisoners. The more you chat in Prison, the higher are your chances to recover half of your karma. Be gentle, do not annoy other prisoners as they can also complain on your behavior and the system will prolong your sentence. There are no administrators who decide how long you should stay in Prison. The system is self-regulated, it automatically calculates your sentence depending on your violation. Users with lots of violations may stay in Prison for months.

If you continue violating or even creating new fake accounts for avoiding your ban, all your accounts and devices may be suspended and deleted from AntiChat forever.

Q: 16. How do I register?

Select your country, type a phone number and any password. You don't have to wait for a password via SMS. You should create your own password and remember it for future use. If you decide to register with a fake phone number, you may lose access to your account, all your connections and karma as you will never be able to reset password via SMS in case you forget it or re-install the app.

17. Forgot Password?

If you forgot your password, do not worry. First, try to login few times with any password you remember. Second, if your passwords still don't match, there will pop up a window suggesting you to reset your password.

18. I cannot receive my password via SMS

If you have not registered yet, you do not have to receive any password. You should create your own password to register.

If you are a registered user and try to reset your password, but do not get it via SMS, we are sure that you typed your number wrong either when registered, or when tried to log in last time. Users with fake or incorrect phone numbers can never get access to their account if they lose their passwords. The reason is simple: for security reasons anonymous network cannot get any user an access to any login number they do not own

If you typed your phone number correctly including the country code, but still can't reset password via SMS, our robot will automatically call you and tell you the new numeric password in 2 minutes after you press the 'Reset Password' button.

19. All my chats and karma disappeared

If you have not opted in to delete your account in your 'Privacy Settings', your account couldn't be deleted. Make sure that you typed your number the same way when you registered. If you registered before April 2016 without country code in front of your phone number, select 'No Country Code' in the list of countries opposite the phone number form and try logging in again with your old account number without a country code. If that doesn't help, re-install the app and try this hint again.

20. The app crashed and I cannot not log in or register

If the app suddenly crashed and you cannot login or register, please wait for a few hours and try again. There might be timeouts on our cloud servers because of high traffic volume.

21. How do I get more information?
