Can not post/reply
 
I know this is the wrong forum but this is the only forum where I can post.

I just noticed it today that my account can not post a new thread nor a reply anywhere but the PC & Technical Issues sub-forum.

Thank you for the help.

PS
Probably because of the PW <--> Cryptic account merge.

Actually, it's a Silver restriction that is removed upon ONE of the following conditions being met:

1. Carrying a C-Points balance. (For this purpose, free points obtained via offers DO count)
2. Purchasing, or having ever been billed for, a C-Point purchase or a sub.
3. 20 hours of aggregate game play.

Spent a while looking at this in the hope I wouldn't have to spend money ( I'm Scottish and tight as a badgers bum )

I have been playing for over 2 days 12 hours.

I bought two c store points in game with dilithium. ( I have a balance of 2 :p )

Still no posting permissions outside of tech support.

So I'm thinking option 2 is the only one that actually works. :rolleyes:

I've never spent a dime to obtain C-Points to this point (all my money comes at the first of the month and I'm lucky to be able to spring a few bucks to buy ZEN to transfer to C-Points sometimes). I have a balance of 174 C-Points, all via ZEN offers--and full posting privileges.

Points bought via Dilithium, IIRC, are considered Promotional Points and do not apply as C-Points in that regard.

1USD = 100 ZEN = 80 C-Points

Ah, thank you. :)

So it's the same cost as buying cryptic points directly for me (once I worked out the conversion rate ).

Always nice to have options though. :)

3rd point is not actually in the matrix. They also removed the "C points balance" one (probably because it was kind of misleading).

Right now the limited account goes away if the account has ever had a subscription or has made a C-Store purchase.
