Using the ‘Ignore’ option

Thanks to the initial round of feedback about our brand-new MLB.com Chat. As you can see from the previous post’s comments, obviously the most-discussed early issue has been moderation. Starting with tonight’s games (9/13), you’ll all be able to get back into chat. If somebody is sending inappropriate messages, use the Ignore option and you won’t see any more messages from that person in the room. Thank you for your patience as we made this update. Remember that not everyone will ever see eye to eye as to what constitutes good or bad behavior. Think of it as being at the ballpark with 40,000 or 50,000 others. We at MLB Advanced Media will not be moderating these rooms, as noted at the bottom of the Lobby page, so you can feel free to just use Ignore if someone seems like they are out of hand. There is a max of 25 people per room, and if 24 people hit Ignore, that person will eventually notice that no one is responding. Keep the feedback coming and enjoy MLB.com Chat!

Why is it that the baseball teams wear different style uniforms? I think that the rule is clear:

1.11 (a) (1) All players on a team shall wear uniforms identical in color, trim and style, and all players uniforms shall include minimal six inch numbers on their backs. (2) Any part of an undershirt exposed to view shall be of a uniform solid color for all players on a team. Any player other than the pitcher may have numbers, letters, insignia attached to the sleeve of the undershirt. (3) No player whose uniform does not conform to that of his teammates shall be permitted to participate in a game.

Some of the players wear the socks while others have long baggy pants.

A manager could contest a game winning homerun if the batter was wearing a different style uniform..

first of all i love the new chat, and the way it is running. Also i would like to offer a suggestion- you should add a feature sort of like myspace that lets u make friends and helps u locate ur friends if they r on at a game or in a specific section also you could also make a chat for each team and have a link on each teams website where they can talk about the team or whatever fans want to talk about and it could be open 24 7 thanx for reading this

The issue with changing rooms (if you were previously banned) has now been resolved. Thank you for your patience.

We hope you continue to enjoy using MLB.com Chat!

As many of you have noticed, there is an issue with changing rooms. We’ve posted this to the faq at http://www.mlb.com/help/faq_chat.jsp:

NOTICE: Some users may receive a “Ban” messaging when switching sections. We are working to resolve this issue. You may chat by remaining in the first room you entered. We apologize for the temporary inconvenience.

We’re working to resolve this now and I will post again here once room switching is restored for all.
