Just saying: You're the only legal forum I know with this kind of restrictions. Short on mods much? Also I think it highly encourages very low quality posts here just to get the initial 5 posts and be granted full access.

you still need to lurk for 4 hours, and this whole website is very lightly and fairly moderated, it fits with the whole freedom thing.

I know, but that's what Firefox' autoreload add-on was made for. Doesn't cost me any effort.

The total required login time is 4 hours, 4 long hours.... and many minutes aren't counted?? Someone should fix the total time logged in timer.

The timer under your stats doesn't update continuously or it would put unnecessary strain on the server, but it is still being tracked.

Updating is truly variable and I was curious whether if I had to constantly visit pages in order to make the time count, thanks for the reply though.

My understanding is that the timer only increments if the time you spend on each page is within a certain range. For instance, I can't simply leave an inactive page open overnight and have it log several hours; but during active reading where I change pages every few minutes, it counts.

5 more minutes! Yeah, i have found that as a newb... it doesn't pay to read long winded posts or pages with lots of info as you will get substantially less than the time you actually spend on them. Just flip threw and skim pages every couple o' minutes if you wanna pump out your 4 hours.

For me the real problem is writing in a language that I know very little. I hope not to make too many orthographical and/or syntactic errors in my future messages on this board.

One thing that I really liked about this forum from the start was the Newbie board. I didn't lurk at all, I just jumped right in because I felt comfortable asking questions on "the board that nobody cares about." Newbies helping newbies figure things out is a beautiful chaos.

There is no such thing as a dumb question on the Newbie board!

Five posts is NOTHING! At first I was confused as to why I couldn't post, then I stumbled in here. I like the idea, in fact I think more forums should do this kinda thing.

 Glad to follow the newbie rules put in place and it's a good way to weed out the trolls.

I never thought my life could be. Anything but catastrophe. But suddenly I begin to see. A "BIT" of good luck for me. Cause I've got a golden ticket!

The requirements sound very reasonable, the four hour limitation should stop people from randomly trolling however the requirements will not put an end to well planned trolling, however this is an unfortunate fact of the Internet and trolls that have no life will generally go as far out of thier way to troll as is needed. But here's an idea, perhaps make people donate a satoshi to get into the forums? That would demonstrate an ability to use bitcoin, although setting up that system may be tedious.. Never mind the way you have it is good too.
