Chat room

You must be registered and have your email confirmed to post in chat. Points independently do not award any privileges in the chat room.

Ranks & special users

Extra privileges of special users

  • Experts (hand-picked; traditionally 6,000 points) gain the ability to retag and edit any post, even if they do not have the required points;
  • Editors (hand-picked) can hide, reshow, approve and reject posts, and kick users off chat
  • Moderators (hand-picked) can ban users, view users' IP addresses, promote experts and change the avatar preferences of any user

Privileges attained through the listed ranks apply for all sections. All other privileges listed prior cannot be earned in one section, then used in another. (For example, you must get 30 points in Meta to upvote in that section even if you can upvote already on PokeBase.)
