Four hours surf time is just too long.
Did you figure out how the counting system works? It's not enough if you let the forum run for 4 hours, definitely. You have to click on some buttons some time. Wink

I don't mind this system at all. This seems to be a very popular forum and I can understand why they're doing this. Nobody ever thinks of himself as a newbie, I certainly didn't, but now that I've been browsing the forum I actually have read a couple of things that I didn't know before.

4 hours is something you can get done in one evening. I registered about 2 hours ago and I'm already halfway done. The bigger issue is the post count, I don't really have any questions to ask and there seem to be plenty of answers on every established topic, so I'm stuck making pretty much useless posts... like this one.

When I decide I want to post something, I have already read the forums for some time as anonymous. So it does get a bit tedious reading 4 hours worth of posts yet again. This is valuable time that I am wasting which could be better spent on contributing to thread posts, e.g. I am interested in the one discussing the future of bitmit.

What counts as a post for the post count? Does this count? Like I said I don't have any questions to ask, but I could make some up if required. e.g. "How should Darth Vadar go about tracking Han Solo's illegal smuggling activities on bitmit?"

On the concept of "newbies", everyone is learning. Including experienced users. Having an artificial category of newbies is just plan wrong, and makes the bitcoin community seem very uninviting for new users. This in turn could restrict the number of people who want to try out bitcoin, which I don't believe is the desired outcome.

For a counter example, Debian mailing lists allow anyone to post, without even a subscription. So it is a much more welcoming place for new users to contribute.

Yes, I could post my contributions to the bitmit thread here, but I doubt anyone in that thread will notice my post.

I could also split my post up into lots of smaller posts too, so I can make the quota.

What happens if the value of the bitcoin drops to 0 while the death star is still under construction? Does this mean the project would get cancelled? Does this in turn mean that the Rebel Alliance would win the war?

I think perhaps the 5 post minimum is okay but the 4 hours of activity seems a little excessive to me.

Like I said, I already had been reading these forums before I even decided to register. None of that time counts.

Just spending 4 hours doesn't prove that I am actually reading anything or understand what I am reading either.
