I had this working at one point. Anyone know the exact workaround?

I want a chat panel with just group chat. I don't want to see what a group member rolls on loot.

Here's another thread discussing this issue.

Hi Pirahna,

That's something I can help you with. When you are in game, right click on the chat tab you want to make changes to and select "chat settings". From there you can select exactly what you want to appear in the chat. I believe unchecking the system feedback and the party and ops information options should display the tab to your preference.

I hope this helps.

I have NONE of the Global, Player or System Channels selected.
I have ALL of the Group Channels selected: Ops, Ops Leader, Group, Ops Announcement, and Ops Officer.

I still see rolling on loot notifications occuring.... In fact, I can ONLY have the one Group channel checked and still see Roll notifications occuring. I believe Roll Notifications should be occuring in the 'group information' channel and not the 'Group' channel. Am I correct or am I missing something here?

Rolls would be considered oOps announcements.. You are missing something..

I took a pic so it is abundantly clear as to what is happening here....

I know there is a workaround for it because I used to have it working Pre 1.2ish... Don't want this thread to die without an answer or a fix....

Yeah, I only had "Group" selected last night as well, was still getting party rolls in EoT doing the weekly. I think I will keep this flagged in my email in case there isn't a follow up in some time.

I hope the csrs/bioware give this more than a fleeting glance and actually come up with a solution.

This was actually really annoying last night. Usually I'm only doing things with my guildies and we are on vent, but last night I was on an alt and trying to explain fights and what went wrong in party chat. I'd resize my window to see a response, then forget it was resized and click on it instead of the enemy I was trying to target.

Still waiting on a response from a csr other than what I quoted... There is no "party" anymore, and this elementary explanation did not solve anything.

So... Bump for today.
