I joined this forum almost a year ago and read it frequently but post rarely so I'm still a newbie.

It reminds me of fraternity hazing and the way that gangs make new members kill people to prove their loyalty, but a much more gentle form.

I can see that something is needed to keep out the trolls and spam. This doesn't seem unreasonable.

I understand this as a form of working protection (hopefully), but certainly quite disturbing. If it helps ....  Smiley

So the "promotion" out of Newbie land is automatic, provided the user meets the minimum posts and hours requirement?

Seems as though most of us use this as an excuse to get a free post, so here I am.

Exactly. It might take a few minutes, though, for the posting rights to be granted.

What's with the timer? I've spent at least a couple of hours reading but my total time logged is 36min.

It's not really a timer, it's a page view counter that doesn't credit you if you are clicking too fast.

"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'

Ah, ok that explains a lot. Sucks though if you are actually spending the time reading though the posts and not making much headway towards the 4 hours though. Friggin trolls ruining it for everyone else.  Sad Oh well, back to reading (and clicking).

Thanks!

I'm not really a huge fan of the newbie restrictions, but for me personally, the amount information here is definitely worth it.

I like this policy, but feel somewhat restricted. I guess its for good reason.

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.

Hello I'm a newbie to these forums but not to bitcoins. I was wondering what I had to do to post in forums I feel Important for me to post in. I am honorer-ed to have found this place and hope to be able to learn a lot from here, PEACE!

I guess we all have to go through the "newb" stage in order to join something...can't restrictions be 3 hours instead?
