I think the 5-posts-in-newbie-section limit is a bit excessive.

Well the point was to cut down on the spamming, so I'd say the opposite

Its like a giant ocean of newbie spam and they are trying to damn it up to keep the rest of the forum water fresh.

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:
- Newbies cannot upload their own avatars.
- 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.)

too many restrictions......and the timer is not moving

Newbie restriction is really of significant use as it help the forum to
distinguish ads and someone with evil intention.

Agree with the need for some restrictions. Just sit tight folks and make yourselves useful on this board and it'll be over with soon enough Tongue

it's not counting the total time I have logged in at all.  I've been pretty active too.  I'm not complaining though: I'd rather anyone who isn't truly active to be stuck in the Newbie section anyways.  Will be worth the wait i guess.  Cheers for not letting anyone and everyone in the spam the forums and make it a big messy headache  Cheesy

I really like this concept. In my opinion a forum is a community and this is a very solid way of preventing unwanted people from getting in and effecting the rest of the community. I don't mind this wait time because I know i'm going to be joining a good reliable group of people plus there so much to learn going through theses forums this time should fly by  Cool
