The rules are sensible: it forces newbies to learn about bitcoin properly.  Wink

the restriction is annoying.  why not charge a fee to bypass the restriction?

You could, actually, if you wanted to become a donator to the site.  But tell me how you figure newbies are going to get some bitcoins to donate, if they can't post to the site first? 
This statement says quite a bit. The fact that you think that people new to posting on this forum can't have bitcoins is absurd.

Haha this make sense, although it does kind of stink since I would like to PM a member here, but I suppose as a new member, rather not get trolled randomly.

I understand why you do this, but this kinda sucks for someone like me who tends to lurk forever before registering, and doesn't bother registering until I have something worthwhile to add.

Not necessarily, it might just force them to make low content posts in this forum before they can use the forums they want to use.

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

Are you saying that it'll take 10 minutes after you've reached the 4 hrs?

You can post in the French section (or most other local sections) even if you're a newbie.

There's someone on this forum called Matthew N. Wright, and he seems to have got past the trolling firewall Cheesy

I think the restriction is sensible but can cause problems if user is new to forums and would like to use BuyBitcoins.com.

That only seems fair, 5 posts isn't much to prove that your a good member!

Maybe this should be added into some kind of rules section, I could not find it quickly, and when I tried to send a PM, it only said "You are not allowed to send Private Messages", maybe there should be a link pointing to this topic when it displays that text e.g. "Please click here to read the forum rules.", etc

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.

I feel there would be more content on the forums if you guys allowed instant posting after sign up.

I suppose the restriction is necessary. But it does incentivize content-light or content-free posting while a 'newbie'.
