Not all non registered members are newbies  Angry. Some people has been reading this forum before register an account...
Why is this method avoiding trolls? A troll can wait 5 hours.

Efforts to filter trolls are quite laudable, but some people lurked a while before actually creating an account on this forum. (most Bitcoiners are privacy-minded, you know Smiley )
Shouldn't it be an idea to lower the 4 hour threshold a bit? I lurked a lot more here before I created my account.
Cheers!

Makes sense, playing the waiting game is better than a board full of trolling.

Yes, this is silly. I have been reading the forum for about 3 months, thinking I would never have to reply in the short term. But when the time comes, it is frustrating.

The Newbie restrictions make sense. Enough time to deter / make spamming more difficult, but not so much time or so many posts as to overly deter Newbies from joining and taking part in the Bitcoin community.

Also there is value in the Newbie section itself, from the definitions post, security posts, and the like.

Care to explain how you determined not only that the rules are good, but also that the choice of 5 posts and 4 hours is optimal?

Do you know any other web site with such rules?

Do you know other web sites that have no such rules, but are, to your utter disbelief, still free of spam?

The restrictions are fair, but the getting 4 hours logged in is annoying because you have to keep reloading/changing pages for it to realise your are online Undecided On the plus side, I only need 30 more minutes until I'm outta here!  Wink
