Maybe this page (or a newbie greeting topic) should be on the frontpage for newbies.
I had to use the search page to find this topic (i know thats what its made for, but it should be more clear)

Anyway, nice to meet you all, looking forward to reading a lot about Bitcoins!

Hmmm. At my current rate it will take me 13 years to acquire my first whole bitcoin.

Take a look at litecoin mining Tender -
http://litecoin.org/
https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Litecoin
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=47417.0

It's more suited when you're mostly using your cpu than your GPU.

You'll mine litecoins (essentially a simpler version of bitcoint with a different design objective than bitcoin) which can be exchanged for bitcoin.

number five is alive.

p.s. I think it's not very obvious the newbie posting restriction for someone who signs up. I've been searching my spam filter for days for an activation email that doesn't exist...

I think the posting restrictions made some sense back in the day, but seriously there is so much information - especially for newbies - out there right now that it makes no sense. This is not going to be the first place someone learns about bitcoins. They are more likely to have learnt about it at one of the bitcoin business out there like bitinstant, or mt gox or somewhere they want to use bitcoins to buy something.

This is a difficult rule for those of us who prefer silence Sad

+1

I don't like posting something just for the sake of posting; neither am I going to spam to prove I'm not a spammer.

It does encourage me to break up otherwise succinct comments into many smaller posts, in order to increase my count.    Undecided

It makes sense to have such restrictions but it's really annoying and doesn't seem to be keeping the riff raff out. Seems like there are a few crackpots with hundreds of posts on this forum.

I noticed I could not post on this forum, I was driving myself up the wall wondering what was wrong. I wish this newbie forum was at the top rather than the middle of the index page.

I have to say (as in literally, I have to, in order to gain posts) this is a somewhat significant barrier to entry for legitimate new users and doesn't exactly promote community growth. It would seem to make for a lot of superfluous noise. I hope the sandbox restrictions have at least managed to succeed in their stated objectives.
