I guess it's actually a rules needed to avoid trolling, spam... Even if a bit boring i do support it

It doesn't stop trolling very well, but it does help us catch spam-bots.  Also, the four hour login rule limits the number of repeated newb posts where people don't make a habit of trying to find out answers to those common early questions before posting the same question that another guy did 10 minutes before you, and that 1000 people posted over the past month.

Please, people; read!  We know that Bitcoin is complex and novel, but once you understand it, everything will just 'click'.

"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'

The rules seem very fair to me. Must admit if the 50 post rule was in place it would have definitely put me off.

I was wondering why I could post in other forums... Perhaps there should be some sort of warning at the top that can be dismissed? Maybe I missed that little memo in the registration confirmation email?

Trying to contact a business through a message board when they're not responding to emails seems strange.  Do they have a phone number?  Mailing address?

It's not like you're not really well advised when you register for an account. You even have to check a box saying you agree you'll have limitations on where you can post while you're a newbie, so it's hard to understand someone can miss it.

Hello,

Nice to meet everyone. Maybe I offer a suggestion?

It would be a great idea to put a nice big banner/alert/info notice for brand new members, informing them of the tecnical side of the process of becomming allowed to post. It was difficult to figure out what was going on. I registered, found myself given access to the forum, but seemingly without the ability to use it. It was a challenge to figure out that there was a thread hidden down here in this sub forum that explained the whole process.

(I actually had to head to IRC just to ask what was up).

Anyway, nice to meet everyone!

Cheers
