Wow, wish I'd read these restrictions sooner! Been here a week, mostly lurking and reading, but surely I could have knocked out the 5 posts by now.  Oh well, I do see the reason for it.

Hi everyone
It makes a lot of sense to have this restrictions.
I were to join along time ago, but never got the time, but today, I decided I had postponed too much, so here I am!
Greetings, everyone!

thanks for the answers, is there something i can access to let me know all the do's and don'ts of forum etiquette?
For that, I suggest using Google. Otherwise, for forum-specific policies, see these posts:

this seems a bit unfair, as don't see the purpose in posting some topice that is more or less covered by other topics (in wich I am not allowed to post). But many usefull post at this forum.....thats why I'm very disappointed that this forum is for elite members only!! (unless you bow down to your surperiors). This is not meant as harshly as formulated, but I really think I could both benifit and contribute to this forum!

But seems it will be more benifitial for most if I make a public forum, where we are all participating!

I can see the benefits of these restrictions, however it makes it a lot harder for people to quickly answer a question asked in a non-newbies topic. I just came across a thread via google and thought I'd take the time to register and help out, however the restrictions are preventing me Sad

OK, I understand that I have to post something that makes sense here to be allowed in other threads.

I want to join a discussion on bitcoinica.com as I spotted some things that need to be improved there.

Oh, so I try to find something useful to post on - but the most interesting things are somewhere else. Jeez!

These restrictions seem reasonable.  Although, I really wanted to add an image today and couldn't due to the restrictions.  Oh well, soon enough!

I feel like there should be better ways to moderate spamming, other than restricting new-comers from essentially everything

it does make sense to limit the access, but 5 posts in the noob thread, is a little bit to much.

I can understand the need to stop spam but it's really annoying having to make 5 posts that you really don't want to make.

Come on... 5 post's its easy and reasonable!!!
The hard part is to be active in the forum for 4 hours before you can have restrictions removed!
After 2 days I only have currently 2h08.
As it would be obvious, leaving the site open would never work: you have to be active or it would be too easy. Any spammer could do!

Your average troll is no sullen slouchabout, and will not rest after but five posts. The troll is a pernicious creature, a clever beast of patience and frequently of no small intellect. Five posts is but a snack for such a one, a delicate aperitif before he gorges himself upon your vexing frustrations. Be wary, fellow bitcoineers - these restrictions will perhaps keep out the lazier specimens, but those most foul and determined trolls will not rest at a mere five post limit. It is only a low threshold before a wide open door.

Is not a man entitled to the sweat of his brow?

It's funny that to prevent spam we have to spam 5 times to get out of here, 10 times to add a link to the signature, and 50! times to add an image, isn't it?   Grin

But you don't have to spam!
They just want you to be an active member!
Wait... 10 to have a link? I missed that one... Got my mind stuck in the 4h of activity!
