I must participate in order to participate. I like that logic--and so do the spammers.  Grin

Yeah this makes a lot of sense as to why I couldn't send messages

Oh! It only took me several months to realise this was why I couldn't post!

Given that I've chatted on the irc channel for a few months now, and even contributed to the bitcoin-qt project, it does feel a little odd to be considered a newbie, and I'm not entirely sure how 5 posts on a newbie channel indicates I'm any less a newbie, but I guess there needs to be some way to reduce troll traffic. I'm wondering if these restrictions just encourage "newbies" to post mundane messages like this one to the newbie channel.  Smiley

Thanks for making more-clear this policy.

It was something I'd questioned when creating an account for the forum.

Perhaps the stipulations should be added to the text on http://bitcointalk.org when creating an account?

It's on the page where you register, twice. You even have to check a mark beside one of them.


and then this at the bottom

^Right, the general restrictions are noted - that much I was aware of when creating an account.

My question was whether the specific criteria should be communicated on that sign-up page. I know I for one would have found the information useful.

The only reason I see not to include it is in case the specific restrictions are apt to change from time to time, so it's easier to do it ad hoc as necessary and not also have to update registration-related text.

Well, slightly annoying for new starters, but if it saves the forum from being spammed, sounds like a reasonable approach to me.

Second the view that it should be clearer on the signup page though... Mine was somehow in Russian??

Good forums have restriction, so If there are restrictions have to be respected.
If you are new. They watch your posts and if your posts are okay, than you go to next level.

Of course all first posts seems to be here, either to praise or condemn these restrictions.  I'll do neither and simply state how much I'm looking forward to meeting the minimum requirements.

The registration page has intro text in both Russian and English. They say more-or-less the same thing.

In the "Show new replies to your posts." is there a way to remove posts you don't want to follow any more?

Heh I was wondering the same thing! "Notify me of replies" under "Additional Options" simply subscribes/unsubscribes you from being notified of replies via email, not from "Show new replies to your posts."

Afraid not, it's one of the many failings of SMF software. I have way too many in mine as well, I just open the ones I want to read in a new tab, and then hit mark all as read to clear the rest. I would love if there were a "track topic" that you could use to add/remove threads from there without having to post "sub" or some other useless post.

Well you can always delete your post, that can be hard to do in threads with a lot of pages.

I wonder if these restrictions will really stop scammers?
