I see most here stating the restrictions are not high enough.  I'd like to say the opposite.  Bitcointalk should be about communication.  I find forcing new users to spam five posts in this forum degrading.  It potentially leaves a bad taste in the new users mouth.

I understand the problem, but, there should be a better way to approach it.  For example limit one account per IP type thing.  Tor/I2p/Proxy users would be sad, but, that is where 99% of your spam is coming from in the first place.  Alternatively if you detect a multi-ip account (aka from Tor) then force them into the "newbie" class and to jump through these (even more restrict) hoops; fresh/first IP users should be exempt from this and go straight to JrMember.

An alternative here would also be to set up interfaces to the forums from I2P and Tor - I don't know anything about Tor hidden services, but for I2P at least it is possible to uniquely identify visitors (anonymously) with destination hashes instead of IPs, and the changes required to utilize them are normally trivial.

If only everyone could play nice we would not need such rules..Respect is an age old adage that is mostly forgotten these days in the forms I was raised on.  This is my 5th post and doing my time. Still finding the process apinfully slow for an old reneck with no patience,,,OK now I will lie around the yard for another hour and its on full blast....

I think this restrictions are not against trolls - they easily can get required number of posts in newbies section Roll Eyes

The claims of how to get out are a lie.  I've been on the forum for 1.5 years.  I originally could post anywhere.  I then stopped going to the forum for over year.  Now despite tons of posts, years spent on the board, threads made about it, and multiple whitelist requests nothing.

I'm guessing the people getting out are bribing the admins.

At first I was like "WTF" at the restrictions, but after looking around, I think I like the fact that it weeds out the trolls and prevents spam.  Almost to my 5, which I will pry continue to post in the newbie section long afterwards (self proclaimed noob) but 3 hours till freedom!  Time to do some pokin' around and readin' up!

I like the idea of restrictions, until they are applied to me.

Agree. I'm not a troll but have to endure the limitations.

Terrific gotta wait 4 hours to ask a pool oriented question to a pool operator because you wont get any more mods or start punishing trolls and abusers.

Great moderating...

Just bottom of the barrel kind of stuff

Read this :

If you have a need to be allowed into the forum beyond before you have completed the required 5 posts and 4 hours logged in, please post your request here. You must provide evidence that shows that you either understand more about Bitcoin than the average newbie, or that what you want to post can only be done in another forum. Reasons such as "I'm not a spammer" will be ignored. Try to be as specific as possible.

I'm interested in posting in the fpga miner thread.  I made some changes to the code and a version running some extra cards I have at work.  If possible, I'd like to bypass the 5 post, 4 hour limit.

Or I'll just have to make a few random posts instead  Grin
