    The title says it all.

    Seriously I need more than 15 people, its really limiting and it always feels like somebody gets left out.

    and no I'm not saying we should be able to invite the entire smogon to a convo, 20 would actually be enough.

    Hopefully this isn't XenForo's limit.

    I am like 100% sure you can add more than 15 people. After adding them by typing in their name (when you first make it), there should be an option to add more people at the bottom of the list of people in the convo. I am in multiple conversations with tons of people, so I know it's possible. I am also sure that it is not a badgeholder-only thing, as well.

    Maybe you can't add >15.... at a time? I have been in convos of far more than 15 people.

    Would it be a badgeholder only feature? I've received a PM from Limitless regarding Tutor stuff (which I quit Smogon after like, 1 week in) which had probably 30 or so people and it really seems like it was all a single-shot thing.

    At 15 people you are way better off just making/using an IRC chat tbh... 15 seems like a crazy number for a private conversation anyway.

    At the current moment, it is, in fact, a badgeholder-only feature. Ask Laga, who was the only one able to get Arcticblast into a conversation of ours (which had 16 people at the time). You can also ask Hulavuta, who got others to join after that due to unawareness that he could've added Arcticblast.

    So is there anything you can do about this or are you going to keep it Badge only?

    Because IRC won't work for me since I need to have a way to talk to my terrible time-zone matchup friends.

    You can ask a badgeholder to do it for you. Feel free to PM me or something if you want.

    Smogon has historically had a user PM limit for regular users. It used to be 5 on vBulliten's system, but that wasn't a stellar system in the first place.

    Honestly, unless it's a super dire thing that a lot of members want, it will probably stay a badgeholder-only thing. With a badge comes certain perks. It's just something you'd have to deal with. Yeah, it sucks, but it's just something a regular user has to deal with. Sorry, man. :(
