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?

I think 4h is not that bad - if you register as soon as you read this forum. But many users don't.
Why is it 4h online and not, for example, x hours starting with the first post?

I think the Newbie restrictions/time limits are justified given the mass of spam and trolling going on in this forum.

I have also noticed that if I just leave my browser window opened on the forums for a few hours while logged in it doesn't count that time in the 'Total time logged in'. I wonder how they know that people are afk/not on the forums?

I'm probably not the only one to be frustrated with the restriction, but I understand the motivations for it.

Back to reading and posting on the handful of topics that I'm interested in and can post to...

Looks like I need to chill for 4 hours and make five posts just so I can talk about what I really wanted to talk about. Okay then.

You can post and start threads in the Newbies section before you reach the threshold.
