I don't remember it ever being specified, and I've heard both that it's 15, and that it's 25 posts, and this has made me confused.
By the way, thanks to the mods for making this thread, it'll be a huge help if I need some answers sometime in the future!
Simply to filter out those only interested in the chat and not in the rest of the community, we try not to say what the exact number of posts is to get into the chat. The limit was placed there to keep out trolls and spambots, but also to keep newbies more active on the boards, which is where you can talk about things a bit better. (the chat tends to be a bit more sporadic) Plus, we discourage members to spend their time here exclusively in the chat.
Though, some members may know the limit number and you may hear it from them. I encourage members to not reveal it, but it happens. *shrugs*
Just don't worry about it and be active in the forums, posting thoughtful posts and having fun meeting the other members. And in no time, you'll be able to access the chat as well.
