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 gain the ability to retag and edit any post, even if they do not have the required points; the "expert" title is given to users who reach 6,000 points on PokeBase and is usually not given otherwise
  • 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.)

I've edited to put in the correct numbers :)
I've got at least 30, why can't I vote?
well actually you have zero meta points
I thought they changed the 200 for tags to 500?
i have 30 points y can't i vote on meta?
you have 25 meta points
Kyron, that was 2 months ago when I first came to the site. I've figured that out now. :P
So you have certain amount of points for each section?? Like ten for Meta, 20 for PB, and 30 for BS. Is that how it works?
i can't vote with 46 points. i can flag though.
I've got 40 points on the PB, but can't vote. Why is that?
They changed it.
You need 30 points to add wall posts.
^ Actually, yeah, could we add that in to please? Also, it's 30 for each section, so you need 30 on all 3 to post in all 3 places >.>
Can this be changed so you're actually able to post on your own wall, regardless of points?  That would be nice.
can you update this? i have 700+ points on the database and i cant create new tags  and im sure other sections arent updated, thanks.
I can create tags, I'm pretty sure it's really 300 points
No you cant (you privileges are the same as mine), and i have more points than you and i still cant.
i can downvote and im not at 100 points yet
Thanks its really helpful
