"Frequently Asked Questions"
Here's a list of our most frequently asked questions:
Q: I didn't get an email after signing up?
A: Unfortunately some mailservers may handle the mail as spam, so check your spam folder.
Q: Why do I get ads even though I’m a Premium user?
A: Our goal is that as many people as possible can use XFBall, so we've priced Premium as low as possible. Therefore we need additional funding from ads. It's possible that in the future we'll have different premium subscriptions with no ads.
Q: Can I use my tablet or smart phone?
A: Yes, you can view drills with a browser, but not create drills.
Q: Will XFBall be creating an app?
A: We are planning for an app, but this will require additional investments.
Q: Can I download drills offline?
A: No, not currently. This will be possible in the XFBall app.
Q: Can my private drills really not be viewed publically?
A: First, only XFBall premium members can save drills privately. Private drills can only be seen by the creator while logged in with the same profile. All drills shared in a group created by yourself (like your team) can be seen by all users in that group. Note that members can share your drills outside the group.
Q: Can I see whether someone is online or not?
A: That's not technically possible at the moment.
GENERAL INFO ABOUT GROUPS:
To find a group, you can use the XFBall search tool or look at what groups other users are members of. To do so, visit a profile, look in the sidebar for the group icon and click on it. Group members are not notified if a group is deleted.
Q: Can I invite members to a group?
A: Only group owners and administrators can invite and respond to group requests.
Q: Can I remove someone from a group?
A: Only group owners and administrators can remove members from a group.
Q: Can I delete a group?
A: Only the group owner can delete a group.
