For some reason I still can't post outside of newbies though my posts are > 5 and I have almost 5 hours online.

It's a bit frustrating when you have something relevant to reply with but you're forced to make 5 forced posts here to do so...

And by the way, can anyone tell me why rules are so strict here? I may simply underestimate "Scamer" problem, but you can simply forbid making new topics or so. By the moment you register and can do nothing, except posting here... May be it will be better to make invite-based registration instead?

  I think it has to do with spam as well.  I think that invite based is a good way to whitelist people if that's what you mean, but I think restricting the board to invites is probably a smaller community than what's being sought here.

So we come to the last question - what is more important: not exactly known risk of spam or other OR natural awaitings of new members that they are welcome, and can speak? Now situation it is too similar on situation with government restrictions or regular financial systems - only restrictive measures. It is a direct opposite to Bitcoin will. Very strange to see it here...

I don't like this... Do I have to be logged in for five hours or just be registered for five hours?

I think this is a great idea, keeps the spam count down i guess apart from in the newbies section that is.

As a member for nearly two years  I feel this is a strange, but in the same vibe -effective, rule.

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.)
OK. It's clear for to do to as your advice. Thank you!

Thank you, sounds like a good way to moderate spammers.

Sometimes the internets are a bit like pre school.  The actions of the few. But okay. I will comply.
