Salam! (Peace to you) Welcome to ShiaChat.

***** No, you can't use the chat room as soon as you join. You need Advanced status (25 posts in the forums). Participate first and when we know you a little bit you are allowed to use the chat room. 

How to participate: Click on any Forum and click on a topic to read. Click on "Reply to this topic" and write your response. Click the "Submit Reply" button to save your reply. If you have less than 25 posts in the forums, a Moderator will read each post and approve it before it becomes visible.

To start your own topic, click the button called "Start New Topic." Fill in the box called "Title" with words that describe the subject of your topic (not Miss, Mr., Mrs. or Dr.). Then write in the reply box. If there is a spelling problem, the word will be underlined in red. Make changes, if any, and click the "Submit Topic" button to save your topic. If you have less than 25 posts in the forums, a Moderator will read your topic and approve it.

Guests can only participate in the Guest Forum by replying in topics or click on "Ask a question" to start your own topic.

Can somebody explain to me why I wasn't able to post reply's to topics? I know that I'm a basic member, but I haven't read anywhere that there is a limit of posts per day till you're an advanced member. If there is, could you show me the link so I know when I'm able to post again.

About your private information, e-mail addresses, etc:

Do not disclose any one's private information in the forum, including your own. This includes WhatsApp, e-mail address, IP address, house address, and any other individual information, such as your real name. Thousands of people visit these forums daily and it's not worth the spam or scams that are possible.

Greetings, I would like to know at what point will I be able to post comments and posts without having them be hidden first and approved by a moderator? I have a lot of comments that could increase my reputation but are stuck on back-order and hidden in terms of being approved.
