These restrictions just end up making a ton of garbage posts.

That's true, but garbage posts that can usually tell us if you are a bot or not. 

Yes, but newbies should be allowed to contribute in someway that isn't just busy-work-ish. Maybe pay in LTC or BTC to get your account opened?

I'd be willing to pay up to a bitquarter (.25) for this !

Bitcoin: the only currency you can store directly into your brain.

What this planet needs is a good 0.0005 BTC US nickel.

If you were to donate said bitquarter to the needs of the forum, I'm sure that is as good a reason to have you whitelisted as any, but I'm not the person to talk to about that.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Hmm.. the restrictions are not good, if a member like me comes with a question,
why should wait for hours and post some random stupid posts?

The newbie restriction is really not a good idea. I want to exchange money from Neteller to Bitcoin and want to contact directly trusted members who make exchanges. When will it be possible? How many posts to write?

Well, I guess I better get started posting.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could have a forum that would allow posters to put of a bond (in BitCoin, of course), that would be forfeit if they were caught violating the rules of the forum?

Just a thought...

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.

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

that is a good rule if you ask me to stop the spammers

While I'm grudging this now... I'm sure the lack of spam makes up for it.

Fascinated by BTC, but I think 4 hours of me having to browse this was not cool. Sad

The 4 newbie post limit is pretty strange. I want to be on the 100BTC list, but I can't, because I can't reply to a non-newbie thread :-(

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

The newbie restriction however keeps people, like my self, who want to get up to speed and buy some bitcoin quickly from doing so....I have just found out about bitcoins and frankly it is extremely frustrating finding a way to buy some.

Welcome playdontworry,

How does Newbie status on bitcointalk.org keep you from buying bitcoin??

I have used mtgox and tradehill to buy bitcoin with success (I don't store my bitcoins there!). I understand that intersango is also easy to use to buy bitcoins. I don't know the status of bitcoin-otc, but I understand that it is great and decentralised way to buy bitcoins.

I cant do intersango as I cant do and ACH transfer.  I can do a wire but dont feel like paying $25.  So I go to MtGox.   You can deposit to chase but have to go through averification process.  So I come here looking to buy some mtgox money to buy bitcoins but have to go through a process before I can arrange a trade with someone.  I am not a dumb guy and maybe just havent found the most direct path to purchasing bitcoins but if there is an obvious one I'd sure appreciate some one pointing it out.  On the upside I did get my free .005 of a bitcoin in the mtgox account....

These restrictions are perfectly reasonable to any forum that has as much activity as this one.  I just got the bitcoin client recently, and I'm still in the process of synchronizing with the network.  At this rate, I may get whitelisted first.  Smiley
