News: BIP91 seems stable: there's probably only slightly increased risk of confirmations disappearing. You should still prepare for Aug 1.

Creating a minimum post count just make people post more useless posts.

- Yeah, you're right.
- You are correct.
- Good decision.

What about sticking to time spend on forum and one post so people can present themselves?

Sure, but they are only here in the newbies section.  See how that works?

"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."

- Carroll Quigley, CFR member, mentor to Bill Clinton, from 'Tragedy And Hope'

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 seems reasonable to me. I mean, ten posts shouldn't be that difficult, considering there are thousands of threads to choose from.

The whitelisting idea is more useful IMO, or moderate the first ten posts (albeit this option is more time intensive), this way the first posts will be meaningful.


That really doesn't sound like a productive use of our time.

My time accrual issues seem to have been an issue with Firefox. I switched to chrome and began getting 1:1 time gains. With firefox I was getting about 3 minutes for 10 minutes on.

I'm sure I'm not the first person to say this, but this is an incredibly dumb policy.

I hunted around for ages looking for the "reply" button on the regular forum, which doesn't say anything about why you can't post there. Then posted my question here, where nobody who could answer it could see it.

Bah. Suppose I'll have to make some fairly pointless comments on other threads and increase the noise-to-signal level too.

I spent an hour trying to figure out why I couldn't post before... the admin of this board should make it more obvious.

And spending ANY time reading posts in this forum IS? I'm a member of perhaps a hundred forums and I've never seen a policy like this. I've seen sites restrict users from Classifieds with a similar system but that again is also a stupid policy as it just results in a bunch of crap posts. You are not any more prone to trolls or spammers than any other forum. The most draconian forum I am a member of, http://corner-carvers.com/forums/ , allows anyone to post anywhere but if you post crap, you get banned. I don't agree with that approach but at least there you end up with a forum filled with content with very little noise. All you have done here is put a tiny little noise buffer that just annoys your would be users. It absolutely boggles my mind that you guys want this currency to spread but yet you make joining a discussion forum unnecessarily difficult. This policy is almost certainly hurting rather than helping your cause. Look at the big picture.

It would be nice if this thread, or at least the information it contains, was visible in the "Help" section.

But that's not a big of a deal. I search on google "bitcointalk unable to post pm". And found quick response.
