Can't talk or see zone chat, can't see non friends chat or emotes.

Ok I have opened 2 tickets and no response to my problem, I can't see zone chat or talk in it, I can't see non friends chat or emotes nor do i get their invites to anything, I have made alot of cstore purchases and have played at least 200 hours on my main character and still nothing, I have opened tickets to no response, and I actually want to buy the eng ody, but i refuse to put money into a game where i can't talk, when my guild mates are quiet, it feels like im playing a single player game. I have reset my chat interface 20 times, so im kinda stuck here, none of my characters can talk in zone and if they aren't in a fleet they really can't see or talk in any channel (well they can talk but noone can see them) PLEASE FIX THIS! I mean have a gm log onto my acct and go in game and he/she will see the problem.

Try running the following command in-game:

/whitelist_chat 0

That might fix it.

Wow, like holy god wow, for over a month Ive had the same issue, and there is the fix. Farktoid5000 should get a raise!

Will that fix work for Team chat as well? Ever since I made my first C-Store purchase, I've not been able to talk in Team chat during STFs. I can see what my teammates are saying, but cannot reply. It has become most frustrating.

would it work for the Match channel?

EDIT: did the command
/whitelist_chat 2 and it worked!

This helped my friend who couldn't see zone for the longest time but we still can't get his chat to accept commands like /combatlog 1 or 2

Either way thanks

Some useful problem solving threads like this should be sticky! Helped my related experience immensely, see thread: Help! Unable to see chat

/whitelist_chat 0
Worked for me, however I still can not receive 'Tell' chat, nor can I send in game mail.
