I'm having an issue. The "new and old" post images will not load for anyone. I've uploaded new images, I have the filepath correct...no dice. Also, I tried erasing the images all together and having no image in the chat...no luck either. Any help?

Is there anyway to get it so that people have to post a certain amount per day before they can use the chat? Like set to 3 posts a day or something like that. Alot of users come by and chat for 20 min and leave without posting, i think it would be a cool feature

This hack working properly in English language, but not working Turkish language. I try wrote a message displaying this message:

Your submission could not be processed because a security token was missing.

If this occurred unexpectedly, please inform the administrator and describe the action you performed before you received this error.
How to resolve this?

ChatBox is there to keep forums clean. Now you want three posts to access ChatBox, which will give you a bunch of spam posts, I believe. Then what's the point of having ChatBox?
