Due to a mass of trolling, only established posters are able to post in non-newbie sections. You are considered "established" if you have spent 4 hours online and have made 5 posts.

If you have really good posts, you can post a request for preemptive whitelisting in the appropriate topic.

Also:
- You must have made one post in order to send PMs.
- You need 10 posts to put a link in your signature.
- You need 50 posts to put an image in your signature.

Note that it may take up to 10 minutes for your PM or posting permissions to be granted.

man, i was kinda in a hurry

Good policy. I don't resent it at all.  Considering my interest in Bitcoins, it won't take long anyway.  LOL

If you like this post a donation would be nice....  1PhCzA9o1jcwHr7PR4mxea8nJYUJWpKAGb

Besides, It'll drive me crazy trying to figure where it came from.

Given the nature of forums in general, can't say I'm really shocked that this is in place. Makes sense. Annoying? Sure. But makes sense.

It's sad that this forum has to resort to such measures.

I can understand it's been done but it's still sad.

So my reward for mining my last block on Slush's pool was 0.002 instead of my usual 0.05 and now I find that I can't even post on Slush's forum to try and figure out what is going on and get it fixed since I need 5 posts and 4 hours. This wouldn't be a problem if there was some other way to contact Slush, but in this case these Newbie rules are really a pain.

That sounds totally reasonable.

For me BTC is a movement about giving power to people for the ends of more humanity. Lets rock and roll and make BTC transactions happen.

OK I was wondering why I couldn't reply to a couple of articles, I was beginning to think I was going mad.

A bit of a shame as I wanted to get involved in a few conversations, particularly with PayPal being dropped from Bitmarket, which is a bit of a bugger if you are European.

Still these things are sent to try us, what a shame there are so many spammers and thief's. While I am thinking of it and those that knock Bitcoins, it makes me so angry!

What gets me is people should be angry with the banks and should support bitcoin instead, you have to ask where is their logic. Oh well such is life.

I have a small business and take small payments from all over the world and most of my payments are €3 of which  PayPal take €0.45, on that alone shows you why we need Bitcoin to succeed. I also accept bit coins, but may be I should promote it more!

What these detractors do not understand is that with the likes of PayPal and credit companies can do is take the money back from you after you have sent the product to them, Bitmarket is a good example why Bitcoin is so much better.

OK that is my rant over

Keep up the good work you guys, I am routing for you all.

I get spammers is annoying, I get the 4 hour delay. I don't get the logic in making me post 5 times when I have one board. Seems counter intuitive. Or to put it another way, hey we don't like spam, to make sure you aren't a spammer you gotta spam this board...

trolling happens on every single forum.. nothing you can do about it besides ban the person and check the ip to see if its a repeat offender.. if it is.. ban the ip.

I agree, but what is a better solution?

Some forums charge a dollar for full access.  Maybe something could be setup with bitcoin faucet. Like, you can post 5 times or you can donate some small amount (maybe the equivalent of a dollar) and be able to post immediately (or as soon as your transfer is confirmed).

lmao, this is my view exactly on the subject...you say you want to stop spam and trolling but you require people to make 5 post..there are some people like me who have come for a very specific reason and that is to sell an item, maybe in the future more items...now if you are requiring me to post 5 times to do so..that is kind of backwards because you might assume im bringing a contribution but in all actualization It is counter productive because I did not even want to make more then 1 post originally so its not genuine, wouldnt you want a real community except a forum with 100000 post from people who really didnt want those post to be there anyways? like this one. If there was not a 5 post minimum then you think I would have cared to even reply to this thread? smh.
