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.

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.
- You need 50 posts to put an image in your signature.

This is a nice idea. I assume using more "traditional" tools like CAPTCHAs, DNS blacklists, Akismet or blogspam.net are too resource intensive, right?

I understand the restrictions due to spam etc but it would be great to have someway to post to a topic still but it needs approval or something to show maybe from someone on that topic or something? 

Spam will always get through as people always seem to find a way with it. having people that make the topics moderate their own topicand not allow new members to post new topics for a while way work.

I agree.  I've been a member for several months and just haven't said much so I didn't have enough posts when they made this change to be able to post. 
I guess it would take too much time to review and "approve" all the newbie posts though.

it's possible with the massive influx of new users that this would simply take too many man hours.

I can understand the restrictions but it would've been nicer to 'punish' the spammers/scammers than to punish all newbies right away:)

I guess. I joined the site to be able to participate in the new exchange thread that started yesterday, but unfortunately can't participate as I'm restricted to this little sand box, apparently until I spam post enough to become a Jr. Member or something.

I run three blog sites and an SMF forum myself, so I know the challenges of dealing with spam. Can't say I'm impressed with this answer, tho.

I'm so glad it was reduced from 50, apparently.

I have a background in running forums, and 50 sounds like a ridiculous amount.

I have also just noticed that the online time is "paused" when the browser window/tab is not in "focus." I need about 1.5 hrs to go before I can post where I want. Roll Eyes

LOL, I went to reply to a post for a service that was offered and found myself cloistered here, but seriously I can see how a mass of spamming bullshit would need some kind of counter measure using human behaviour.

I usually lurk on forums, but if there comes a post I want to reply to, I don't want to find that I can't. So in effect, I spam this forum part to increase my post count.  Undecided
