"You don't have permission to chat"

Recommended Posts

It says " You don't have permission to chat" on my end. 

Do you have to be a member of >XI< to use the chat box?

I set it at 10.... it's a common thing to do on forums, it's build into many of the forum platforms... mountain, mole hill..

well I think I post enough and play on these servers enough ,to have earned that right. What ever happened to freedom of speech?I know it's much simpler than that in scale but really, the same principles should apply don't you think?because from where I stand ,I'm looking at it as more of an exclusion from some hierarchy that I'm not privileged enough to be a part of, deemed on the the percentage of my involvement ....and really guys, it's just a clan and a website and a chat box.....don't get ahead of yourselves or too full of it(power) and don't take this as an attack but merely an observation on my part.....to make this website better and more user friendly.

I don't really get what the problem is?.. "well I think I post enough and play on these servers enough" - That is exactly what the post limit is. All we are doing is to prevent people joining the site and spamming the chat log with abusive messages. We are simply putting in a requirement that a user will have posted 10 times before they can use it. It is nothing more than an arbitrary number of actions to put off the bots and spammers. If someone has over 10 posts then they can use the thing.. simple. 

Freedom of speech has nothing to do with this. This is a technical decision being made to combat a specific thing.

Freedom of Speech? Really?  This isn’t the street corner where your rights are protected by a government.  

You don’t have freedom of speech here and it is ridiculous to assert that you should. There are rules that everyone here, members and guests like you, must follow.

Also, news flash, there are parts of this website and these forums that you are excluded from.

Your entire post was actually an “attack” and that doesn’t change by you terming it an “observation” which you follow with...

Why be passive aggressive? If you feel you have earned some right to take shots at the leadership of XI over a small thing like this then just say it and don’t attempt to cover it by calling it an observation.

See what I did there? I didn’t sugar coat my opinion and try to hide it like I was making an observation, finish it by adding no offense intended or preface it with All due respect.

relax Funkster it's not that big of a deal, really,but I think I have posted enough in the past to where I should have retained the right.Besides ,there was no post of any kind saying this was going to happen. I thought I did something wrong for which I had no clue or did I miss the post explaining all this?now all of a sudden I can't use the chat....it said I had no permission....what? ....and if it's only for members now, then why are non members even allowed on the website....please clarify.

Disabling the chat box for non members was an immediate fix for a situation that was escalating, and wasn't intended to be long-term. There were also issues with the website in general the past several days. Duc has been working diligently on it to resolve those issues and find a solution to the chat box abuse by putting the 10 post parameter in place, a parameter that doesn't even come close to excluding someone with your post count.

Guess I really stepped in it LOL.  Well now I know and 10 or even 20 posts seems reasonable.  I don't care one way or the other.  Thanks all.
