The newbie restrictions seem to work well on this forum at least.

5 times + 4 hours, I think it is. I actually like the time restriction.....you should surf and read for a while before acting.

I think its actually a good idea to make some sort of restrictions... because some people just come to spam forums up... but also too much restriction is just annoying because sometimes you just want to add ur 2cents or ask a question... balance, thats the key! ;P

When I first started out Newbie Restrictions annoyed the hell out of me.

Okay, I don't like being restricted in which areas I can post, and I also understand the need to control spammers Smiley

Can't agree with the usefulness of the restrictions in this form. The time spent on the forum - it is possible. But to limit the message, forcing them to write - this is absurd. You can think of the forum is the secret sections. Or spammers can't write in the newbies section. In the end, it forces the newbies spamming, no more than that.

It won't deter trolls; they are persistent folk. What it might deter is casual spammers who have thousands of forums to cover with their spam. It does, however, come at the cost of forcing people to make idle conversation before making useful contributions, as Integ points out.

I do wish they would alter the rules to be accept into certain groups when you have associations with people from other websites.  Thanks,

Doesn't the restrictions only inhibit humans?  I'm sure bots can be programmed to get passed the restrictions...

No, you see most spam bots will try to sign up and then post their spam immediately, and instantly fail. You could program a spambot to make four nonsense posts in the newbie forum and lurk for four hours, but that's more effort than most spammers would be willing to take. Why, they'd have to actually read the forums they're trying to spam, and that's too much effort. Remember, they have thousands of forums to spam to "get rich fast by spamming".
