I don't know if the chat permission has changed again but several of my guild members are having trouble talking in our private chat channel.

I don't know if they need a phone number or that their accounts are limited in some way but I feel like in a PRIVATE chat channel, there shouldn't be any restriction on who can chat.

There are many spam bots and spammers in public chat that can ruin the experience so I understand these restrictions but in a moderated chat room where admins can simply remove a spammer, there shouldn't be a restriction, much like the party chat.
