I guess I understand why they have restrictions but I am trying to get some info from another section and I cannot ask a question until I post in here?  Finding this very frustrating... but I will follow the rules.. at  least I might be able to PM someone with the answer.

New here ... Thanks!

Here's an idea...

If you have a pressing question, ask it in the newbie section.  We do pay attention to the newbie section, it's not just a penalty box, and if you're asking it  perhaps the answer will help others.

"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."

It wasn't a pressing question.... someone posted something in another thread in another forum and I wanted to respond in that thread... in most forums that is possible, you get an account, you get an email verifying your you... you post in the thread that has the topic your interested in.  Posting what I wanted in here wouldn't add info or opinion to the thread I was interested in..  I understand the moderators protecting the forum integrity... it was just frustrating how I had to figure out how to even PM...Which probably shows I didn't read the "I accept" info before I checked the box....guilty.... I get it .. I will play by the rules ... not trying to cause an argument just voicing my opinion.... as insignificant as it may be.

If you see the amount of spam this Newbie subforum gets daily, you'll understand why the restriction is in place.

4 hours online, eh? I've done the 5 post minimum, but I may have to leave a browser tab open for 3 more hours, unless only active browsing of the forums counts as being online.

Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.

Yes, the algorithm only counts active time on the forum as time online. There's plenty to read though  Wink

I just came here to ask about BitInstant. I have used them before and it was indeed 'instant', but I did $1200 in deposits with them yesterday and I still haven't received anything from them! Nor have they responded to my support email.

Did you write TrustCash/whatever other company you were using a check? I paid by cash on Wednesday and received my coins in <20 minutes from the time I deposited. Today I deposited (<$1000) by check, and I haven't received my coins yet, for 3 hours now.

One other thing that might have stopped your order from going through is that your order was more than $1000. As I understand it, that is the maximum amount per day that you can deposit, although they might have meant Bitcoins rather than Dollars.

Quote from: BitInstant.com
limits 500 for all transfers, 1000 for cash bank deposits, 4000 per per day

I will send you a PM (personal/private message) regarding this issue, click the "My Messages" link at the top by "Profile".

No, they didn't.  The $1K daily rule is there to keep BitInstant inline with US banking laws with respect to international transfer agencies.  The laws exist (officially) to frustrate monely laundering efforts, and probably do apply to bitcoin intermediaries in general, although that has never been tested in court as far as I am aware.  If you want to transfer more than that daily limit, you have to extensively identify yourself to BitInstant, who in turn will do so to the US government on your behalf should any of your transactions come under scrutiny

Actually I did two $600 deposits. I did them separately.

If there was some problem with that, it's pretty scary that no one has even responded to my support email saying so, and I would still like to know what happened to my money!

If you deposited through a bank then you printed out/emailed yourself an invoice from the TrustCash website, and the info should be in that. If you went through Walmart, 7-11, or CVS then I don't know who to contact since I have never tried those options.

BitInstant has, historically speaking, rarely responded to support emails. If you deposited through a bank, I would try emailing/calling TrustCash in the invoice or email you received.

Excuse me. We ALWAYS respond to Support email within minutes if not one hour.

All emails have been responded to. Please do not spread false information.

There was no problem with your order.

You can contact support on our website. We always respond and are known to have A+ customer service.

Thanks also, makes much more sense now.
Been a member for a long time and simply never posted.  First time I tried, and couldn't find the "reply" button.  Uhhg.

Painfully trying to find 5 things to post/reply to.
