The best information we have right now about this is from a post retrieved via Google Cache courtesy of AlucardZero where CM Ocho has mentioned that some players are having issues posting.


Forum Posting Issues March 20, 2015

Heya folks,

It appears some players are running into an issue where they are incorrectly being identified as not having a character of sufficient level to post. Don’t worry, this isn’t the result of anything you’ve done! We’re currently investigating this issue and will get it sorted out as quick as possible.

Thanks for your patience,
