Hello Captains,

There have been a few questions that have come up recently regarding who is able to post in the STO forums, so I'd like to try and answer some of them here.

While anyone can read the forums, only Gold Members, and Silver Players who have ever had a subscription or have made a C-Store purchase*, can post in the forums**.

*Purchases using points earned through the Dilithium Currency Exchange in-game do not count.

**Silver Players are able to post in designated boards without meeting the above requirements (which are also set out here).

Also, it is important to note you must have had your email address verified to post if you meet the above requirements.

I hope this clears up any confusion

Cheers,

Brandon =/\=

@ PWE_BranFlakes

When a silver player who has not made a cstore purchase tries to post on a non-designated board can they please be redirected to a webpage explaining why? That tooltip on the f2p matrix is insufficient, hard to find, and easy to forget.

All it takes is one or two attempts and they are likely to lose interest in posting and even coming to the forums fullstop. With respect, YOU MUST DO MORE ON THIS please.

Well... you get what you pay for... Paying nothing, entitles you to nothing... That includes service.

Going by this logic, anyone who doesn't want to pay shouldn't play?

A C-store purchase lets me post in here? I didn't know that. Haven't tried since my first attempt and discovered silvers were not allowed to post.


This is great news! I have a new forum site to post in!


Thank you for this info.

wouldn´t it be smart to let F2P at least post into the Free-to-Play Q&A section of the forums?

Seems pretty stupid to me to restrain new players from getting help and assistance, especially since the only other place to get help, the ticket system, usually takes a couple of days to come around with answers.
