I'm not sure if this is a bug or a feature, but as a new employee I can't star things in team chat.

I've created this question to highlight my problem, but to also resolve it. (hoping that by generating some rep my problem will be solved)

Updated for clarity:

Here's the message I get:

If there's another term for the internal chat we use on the meta board, I'm happy to hear it (team chat seemed to fit..)

    I was going to close this as off topic then looked on your profile... what is "team chat"? Is this some specific room? – Shadow The Princess Wizard May 27 '14 at 13:37
  • Also, what happens when you try to star? You see any error message popping up, or in the JS console? – Shadow The Princess Wizard May 27 '14 at 13:42

    I hadn't realized Stack Echange was a company. :P – fbueckert May 27 '14 at 13:48

    We just change Es, not genders, like some other companies do, expertly. – Oded May 27 '14 at 13:49
  • Does it say "You do not have sufficient reputation to vote" ? If so, I suspect we can override that for internal rooms ;p – Marc Gravell May 27 '14 at 13:50

    @MarcGravell just give him a diamond, won't it solve everything? – Shadow The Princess Wizard May 27 '14 at 13:53
  • Updated question for clarity. Thanks for pointing out my missing X =) – Dan O'Boyle May 27 '14 at 13:54
  • Cheers @Dan, now I'm totally curious about this secret room of yours! ;) – Shadow The Princess Wizard May 27 '14 at 13:54

    Wait, you didn't get your glitter sticky stars? For the first few days, you need to use those (just put them right on the screen next to the message you want to star) You should have been issued a pack when you started, odd. – Tim Post May 27 '14 at 13:56

    @TimPost I've applied glittery stickers, but now my screen is obscured. Please assist. – Dan O'Boyle May 27 '14 at 13:56

    @Dan You could make another post, a feature-request to use transparent sticky stars. – Tim Post May 27 '14 at 14:00

    Wow, 86 repz from one innocent question. So easy! :) – Shadow The Princess Wizard May 27 '14 at 14:58
  • @TimPost I hope you were referring to this skit... if not you will be pleasantly amused. youtube.com/watch?v=BKorP55Aqvg – Dan O'Boyle May 27 '14 at 15:57

This should work for company rooms in about 90 seconds.

This question was in fact enough to push my rep up over the required minimum of 20 for starring chat.

Thank-you

    Well, now we're going to have to downvote you so we can validate the change I just made... – Marc Gravell May 27 '14 at 13:58

    I WAS JOKING !! I WAS JOKING!! (stop downvoting him, please...) – Marc Gravell May 27 '14 at 13:59
  • @MarcGravell Too late! – Lamak May 27 '14 at 14:00

    Rep fell below 20 due to downvotes... I can no longer star - I'll open a new question. – Dan O'Boyle May 27 '14 at 14:00
