SmokeJumper just announced some changes to the bronze level chat channel restirctions on the EQ2X Forums:
As of Tuesday, October 5th, the chat restrictions for Bronze players will be eased somewhat.
Bronze players will now be able to *see* the chat that’s occurring in broadcast chat channels (like /auction, /Level 1-9, etc.).
However, they will still be unable to *send* chat in those channels.
In theory, this allows Bronze players to hear what’s going on in the world, and opens up a huge pool of potential customers for Silver and Gold players that are /auctioning items in chat. (Bronze players can /tell back to the auctioneer if they’re interested in the item.)
The world should feel a bit more filled with people for Bronze players now, as well.
