Were sorry but new users are limited to 3 replies in the same topic. What?

Keep getting this. Anyone else?

…Excuse me, sir but the Blizzard CIA agents would want a word with you.

It’s because of your Trust Level on the forums.

You have to build it up to be able to post more etc. There’s a full breakdown that is pinned to the General Forums front page.

Edited to add - (Hope this doesn’t get me in trouble for copy pasting this lol)

  • Post more than 10 replies

That’s just Blizzard calling you a noob poster :rofl:

It’s funny. I asked Blizz about why I couldn’t post links since I had gone well beyond the “requirements” for Trust Level 3, and they linked me to that guide, and when I argued it again they told me not to follow that guide because it’s not “official” and there’s no actual public information about how the trust levels are decided. I don’t know why Blizz points people at what they literally call false information.

That’s so weird because I went by that guide and am able to post links and all sorta things, and didn’t have an issue.

Idk I think several things are hit and miss, and it shouldn’t be that way - it should be for all or for none. :frowning:

Are you able to now? Or is it still an ongoing thingy?

No, I still can’t. At best I can just chalk it up to more Blizz RNG :joy:

For a game. When I see this post it’s like I have to do some “tribal test” to get their trust.

Might as well do the ceremonial sacrifice.

Not my rules…I was merely trying to help explain to the OP why he was experiencing what his post was about…

and how does one check their trust level?

Go read two or three other threads, leave a comment or two in them, you’ll have T1 and that annoying restriction will go away.
