Well, since this is the place to post those abhorrent, "golly, I'm new and I have to post enough rubbish to actually be able to sit down with the big kids and talk for real" posts, here is my first. And like so many others utterly devoid of worthwhile content. Of course, in about 3.71 hours I will be full of great content, but until then, ticket punched, number one.

Yeah the post requirement seems kind of ridiculous, but imagine a maybe a coding issue.  If it is really to stop spam they should have a maximum 1 post per hour limit for the first 20 days or something.

Restrictions should be set up by section. Personally, I think that it is better that a community has higher requirements to partake in the marketplace section of their forum. I like to look through the previous posts of anyone I am doing business with to get a feel of them and determine how comfortable I am with transacting with them. It is annoying that you would have to post just to have that right and I know many people are not active forum members but would be beneficial to have in the marketplace, but it is still beneficial to filter out many unwanted individuals. I like the time requirement though, it also helps people (like me, I guess) make sure they spend time fully reading up on BTC and learning as much as possible before they get involved in the discussions.

Interesting. Well that explains why I can't post in the support forum.

I came on here to find out about what's going on with Silkroad, and can't read the forum for it.  Anyone have any info?  I try to login/even create a new account, and it just sends me back to the login screen every time.  Anyone have any info?  Does this mean it's still down?

I request to have my restriction removed. I have been a member since June and read the forums frequently. Having me post 5 "me too" posts to me newb requirements just so I can post the once in a blue moon contribution I would make to the normal forums does not serve the forum at all.

Uber-newbie here. I hate forums on top of that. Just brought my first "REAL" mining rig online. 2x 6950's and 2x 5830's. I'll never post again most likely - seems too difficult.

I truly do not understand the point of this "5 posts" minimum. Are you guys  trying to encourage spam? A troll will only spam his 5 posts in 2 minutes and be over with it anyways.

Spammers/scammers will always find a way. But these restrictions let the forum get rid off the lazy ones

I agree. There is no possibilities to make conversation, so the conversation will stay only between current members.

Yeah, 5 post is not a very strong way to stop spammers but at least is a start point.

I´m a newbie but I find this restrictions necessary.
