If you only have menu chat you should be able to see what people are saying in menu chat instead of just seeing ... . Especially when it is in private chat.

Menu chat is to protect children under the age of 13, if they were able to see all chat what would be the point?

Menu chat is designed for a purpose. You can only see what is being said in Menu chat by others. Private chat is not Menu chat. The reasoning for chat to be the way it is, is to prevent young players from seeing or using numbers. KI isn't going to change their chat system other than making sure the filters do what they are supposed to.

I'm sorry, but menu chat is just that.

If you only have menu chat, no one talking with menu chat says ... Only people with text chat or open chat do that.

I think rather than it being automatic it should be a setting in parental controls.

There are settings in Parental controls but, the age a player uses when the account is set up also determines the chat that is available to them.

I think if your in a group (or chat channel when that hits live) you should be able to talk to menu chat people without them just seeing ...
