I've been without any kind of chat since at least November, normally I have my chat window minimized so I didn't notice when it started. I get nothing in Local or Zone chat, I can sit for hours at ESD/DS9 etc and only have the yellow system messages in the chat, I'm not in any fleets and my friends don't play any more so I have no chat going on. The only time I do get any chat is on the odd occasion when I'm AFK and someone fleet invites me, if I'm away long enough I can have quite a list before I decline the invite.

So that makes me think it's a bug with the channels we're subscribed to, so does anyone know how to unsubscribe from Zone chat, that might be all that it needs to reset it.

Well for me the command "/Whitelist_chat 0" worked

I would like to know if anyone found a solution to this bug? as OP said it's getting annoying....

Each time i login or swap maps i get Joined channel Zone, Joined Channel Fleet, Left channel Fleet.... can't see anything typed in Fleet or select Fleet from the chat drop down box... and i tried the /Fleet command which didn't work... because apparently i am not in a fleet... i do have a SB, mine and embassy and a whole fleet roster....

I've had this problem too. While seeing Risa's local/zone chat as a desolate wasteland is nice, I worry that I'm missing out on fleet messages.

Curiously, in DOFFJOBS I can consistently [at least as far as I can tell] see one person in particular's messages, someone not in my fleet or friend list. Just a random person.

You are a peadge. And you are a peadge. Everybody is a peadge!
So much floof.

I'm suffering from this bug as well. Completely silent local/zone chat, and only seeing one half of a conversation in custom chat channels.

EDIT: Tried "/Whitelist_chat 0", seems to have reenabled local/zone chat. Thing is, I never toggled that setting before to begin with. No clue if custom chat is working 100% yet though.

Had the same problem tried everything, including full reinstalls.. and support were typically 'automated' in their response, so glad i found this little post hidden away here...

"/whitelist_chat 0" works like a charm.. now i can see whats going on once again.. w00t!!

so folks know.. whitelist is the same in our chat system as it is on your mobile phone (blacklists and whitelists) by setting it to 0 you are telling the system all contacts are cool (looked into it after i found this post) also found this stowiki link to the many other command codes available in game...

Since this has been necroed already, I figured I'd give my solution too, as I had the same problem, tried the console command (which worked) and also found the ingame setting for this problem.

Go to Social (three-figure icon below mail next to minimap).
Go to Find Team or Team Settings tab.
Click Privacy.
Allow only friends and fleet to chat: OFF!!!

ON and you can only see F&F in chat, OFF you can see everyone. Only took me a few years to figure out....
