I'm not sure if this kind of restrictions are OK. I wanted to reply to a single topic but I have to post 5 replies to irrelevant (for me) posts...

Well, in in the long term it promotes an online community, rather than a place where people can just jump on and post their knee-jerk reactions (at one extreme). I also just signed up to reply to a post, so I have to wait four hours first.

Oof - BTCTalk used to require 50 posts to get out of the newbie section? I guess if you're gonna get a ton of spam it's best to keep it all in one place.

How long does it take to get out of here?  I have 5 posts already but I also need so many hours online?  How do I do that?  :-(

Well I do not mind the restrictions, it actually shows that you are trying to maintain a valuable community. Kudos!

I thinks it's probably a good thing to restrict new users in this way. It keeps the troll away...

But they lack empathy and connectedness.

what if they lacked empathy because their feelings are a lot deeper than non-trolls

empathy is a lack of feeling , but a construction a fantasy of the others feeling if you must to compensate this lack of feeling normal people commonly have

Nice try, but this has nothing to do with bitcoin. Go to youtube if you want a place to ventilate your inner troll.

Due to a mass of trolling, only established posters are able to post in non-newbie sections. You are considered "established" if you have spent 4 hours online and have made 5 posts (new topics or replies).

If you have really good posts, you can post a request for preemptive whitelisting in the appropriate topic.

Also:
- You must have made one post in order to send PMs.
- You need 10 posts to put a link in your signature.

Note that it may take up to 10 minutes for your PM or posting permissions to be granted. (The system automatically checks every 10 minutes and promotes people as appropriate.)

I don't understand how I'm supposed to have five posts if I can only post in this forum. Am I supposed to post to this forum five times?

Start your own thread within this forum. AFAIK, you can talk about prettymuch anything Bitcoin related in this forum, so it shouldn't be too hard to reach the required number of posts.

You were right, that was pretty easy.

Thanks!

A bit frustrating as a newbie myself, but I can see the purpose of it.

It's funny, everything involving BTC seems have a whole load of hurdles, even buying the damn things with regular currencies.
