This is the WORST idea EVER! I am VERY experienced in running forums and have been since 2005. This bs restriction prevents people like myself who are only new to THIS forum and NOT forums in general can not get the information needed to complete projects.

Nice going whoever thought of this HORRIBLE idea!! There are so MANY other ways to control trolling.....wow!

So, do I have to make at least 5 messages in troll reservation to be allowed to post in the wild?

Look, really, I don't understand what to write in the newbie forums when I really want to comment in some post or ask a question. So the only option is to do 5 pointless posts, like this one.

Or I can do 5 troll posts in this troll reservation (newbie forum). But does that make me less of a troll? Don't think so, I could even get a habit trolling ppl.

Bwahahaha! Wait till you discover that it also takes 4 hours online.
I just found out that somehow, browser logged-in but minimized time doesn't seem to count. Efing....

Someone is going to suffer for this.

I'm sure nobody really cares what newbies post in this section. Just in case someone does here goes.

I first discovered Bitcoins a few days ago, from a Facebook link.
I'm not a techie person, but I do have an interest in money creation, after all we are taught
at school to try hard, get good results, get a good job so you can earn decent money.
So it seems that the whole of western humanity is based around getting this stuff called money.
Having spent my life trying to accumulate enough of it, so I have the freedom to choose what I
do with my time, I started to question the whole concept of money.

No-one at school taught me anything about it's creation or distribution. It turns out all money is debt
and is backed by nothing more than faith and is constantly depreciating due to more of it being created.
It is controlled by a few, behind a wall of secrecy. In short it doesn't sound like a very good system for
the many.

Bitcoins however seems such an elegant solution that can facilitate the exchange of goods and services
between individuals. I like the idea of how it is created, through the combination of work/effort and cost.
I like the fact that there is a known quantity and an uncertain rate of discovery and the rarer they become
the harder it is to create them. It is also interesting to see the birth of ideas surrounding Bitcoins.

Purchasing them however is quite difficult and risky at the moment it seems. Mining them is not really an
option unless you are a bit of a geek. So the method of acquisition that seems to fit my needs is purchasing
a mining contract. Hopefully now I've posted I'll be able to contact the member that offers this service.

I'm also interested in business model generation and Bitcoins is the best business model I have seen so far,
assuming the creator has ket a few for himself ;-)

Ditto that.  And yes, this post adds nothing, but I don't have much to say in the newb forums.  Tongue

By 'desired effect', I mean increasing the signal-to-noise ratio in the main forum.

Just wanted to clarify that.

Right, as long as the noise is limited to the newbies forum it keeps the main forums much cleaner without all the crap posts like 90% of the stuff in here.  You gotta do what you gotta do.

I'm new to this whole Bit Mining thing.  Perhaps I jumped in a little to late.  I made my first BTC the other day and sold it for like $18.xx and then MTGox got nailed.  Fun times.

I've always liked the number 5. So much better than 4.

Apologies for going off topic, but it just had to be said.

Yes but doesn't the requirement of having a certain number of posts in the noob forum before posting elsewhere cause the noob section to have this prevalence of worthless posts (much like the one that I just wrote here)?  ;\   ....but of course.
