I really need to get out of the newbie section so I can ask some questions on the Britcoin thread!

Lol, restrictions implemented only a couple days ago? Ha, Figures I always discover new stuff right after restrictions are inserted and I have to take time to prove my loyalty and non-destructive ways to be a participating member. I guess its good for the community, so be it.

IMO such restrictions about minimal amount of messages to post in one section lead only to pollution of that section.
4 Hours is reasonable, though I wonder how it is counted. Is it active time spent browsign the forum?

Seems like a reasonable precaution, although now I have to think of something to post so that I can ask that questions I need to ask in the other threads.  I'm more of a lurker than a contributor.

what about increasing the time requirement, but obliviating the min. posts? apparently i'm not the only one who likes reading this board but doesn't post... (if it's straightforward to measure the time users spend actually reading the board, not just having it open in a minimized browser)

I guess so - it probably considers the amount of time between you being "active" - i.e., the time spent between one click and another, up to a limit. Definitely does not consider the time the window stays minimized or just opened and not being actively surfed.

It's kind of bothering, since I've spent *a lot* of time lurking and only have like, ~2h40 registered.

I actually think these restrictions are a bit goofy, but with the growing popularity of bitcoins it will keep from new members flooding in with spam.

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 1 post to send PMs.

I was very pissed off for a second upon registering discovering I couldn't post, but I guess a 5 post barrier isn't so bad.

The whole board is slow enough, forcing people to spam five posts isn't really helping performance I guess...
I really have no intrest in spamming up this Forum, making it harder for real newbies to find what they're looking for. So sorry for this post guys...

Hmm..well I for one do not post a lot. I just browse and read..for information that I may be seeking. It would have taken me a month or two just to hit the 50 post mark. I already have a few questions for some of the more knowledgable individuals and I am happy that I may get to ask them sooner.

I'll do a booty wiggle for a free Satoshi   ( (( (( )))) (((( )) )) )

Not that anyone cares what i think as a newbie, who is also interested in getting my requisite posts in, but as a moderator elsewhere, I can see using some kind of newbie restrictions on a forum that deals with much controversy as well as all kinds of haters and spammers.

Reading through all these newbie messages .. most of them aren't worth reading and in some sense, weren't worth writing in the first place. That doesn't make much sense to me. That's just adding more noise to signal.

However, the best newbie messages I've read were constructed in the form of what that user would LIKE to post, and generally those messages bother to cite the messages they are interested in. I guess that's good etiquette.  I truly am a newbie. I generally detest forums, and I couldn't begin to tell you if 5 or 50 messages is best. I can understand why experienced forum members get sick of going over the same stuff, over and over. I think some systems just make newbie messages invisible. Maybe that's better.

I guess it all comes down to "proof of work" doesn't it?

A: None, a light bulb is just another electrical cost and heat source. Besides, look at all these LEDs!
