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

While the Newbie posting makes sense in that deters Trolls, isn't there a more interesting way to disincentive Trolls instead of making folks be longed on for 4 hour and make at least 5 posts.

I wonder if we could use the power of Bitcoin to solve the Trolling issue. Such as members of the forum needing to donate some fractional amount of BTC in order to move out of the Newbie area. That way if a Troll is setting up accounts and getting himself booted on a regular basis he is losing money. Right now any persistant Troll just has to slap up 5 random posts in the Newbie section and wait 4 hours for each account he creates.

We are the Bitcoin community after all and BTCs can be used for much more than exchanging and storing value, I hear of folks thinking of creative way of fixing titles and important records and all kinds of stuff to a BTC.

Anyone think this a good idea for really solving the trolling issue? I look forward to your thoughts.

I'm finding it hard to find threads in the newbie section to add to.  I only generally post when I have something to add that hasn't already been said.  I understand the reasoning behind the limit, but in some ways I feel like the best way to get to the minimum posts is just to write a couple of meaningless posts just to get to the minimum.

Yeah I Agree. But playing by the rules is ok.. I manage to get out to newbie section in about a day..
