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.
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.

If there is truly nothing on this entire forum that interests you then why are you here?

you have to post too.

4 hours is no time to gain access but write a post is more difficult for a reader "typo"

wait this hasn't been so difficult Wink

This forum....as in the Newbie forum. I've been reading the main forums for a long time. I'd like to be contributing, but I can't.

The principled side of me tells me not to play the silly game and post a bunch of nonsense just so I can be allowed to post in the other forums. The rational side of me tells me that my doing that won't change anything, that you won't care in the slightest, and that the forum will retain this stupid policy no matter what I do. I haven't decided which side to listen to yet.

I believe the rules outlined by the admin should be made more clear to 'newbies' when they join the forum.

just get your posts and time logged, then enjoy the rest of the board.  more productive to enter into a discussion about noob policy as a valued member and possibly work with the community and admins to find a more satisfactory policy, than to bite your nose off to spite your face and change nothing.

You can read any forum for that, you aren't relegated to just reading the newbie section.

Do what you want, if you feel your time is better spent doing...this then go for it.

Huh Is there a language barrier here? Because I just said that I've been reading the main forums for a long time. I can't contribute there if I can't post there.

Looks like a very active board. I love the idea of being able to trade Amazon for BTC. Somehow I always end up with Amazon.

Your original post was talking about how reading the forum was a waste of time, then you clarified that to newbie forum, so I pointed out that you don't have to read just the newbie forum. Like I said, do what you want.  Wink

I spent 5 mins to sort out why I can't post in my desired topic.
maybe you should make this clear at the registration process.
I read in this forum for nearly a month and arghhh, can't post.
