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.)

If the goal is to weed out spam/trolls, perhaps there could also be an IRC channel to go to to speak with an admin for a bit and they could override the limit?

This is a good idea, although a little annoying (for us newbies) perhaps, surely a captcha, or captchas at various intervals would sort this out...

If you don't have the private key for "your" bitcoins then you have no bitcoins.

Being a "newbie" myself, I very much like this idea.

Oh well, I suppose this works just as well as either of those other two methods, although takes a little while longer as (I presume) you cannot just spam 5 posts all within 1 minute with a single word reply...

More thyme to read other BTC news I suppose...  Cheesy

If you don't have the private key for "your" bitcoins then you have no bitcoins.

Makes sense. I just ordered some hardware so it'll be a little bit until I'm really into this stuff, but registered here to get started early.

Obviously what happens is that everybody posts contentless replies in the newbie section... can't be avoided I suppose.

Trolling is when someone says something just to get a reaction.  Children do this often
