I have been lurking for a long time, and now i have a need to post, but i need to post in non newbie board of course.
So i'm adding to the spam in this post, which kinda undermines the whole newbie system, if i can just spam my way to non noob status, considering the newbie status is to STOP SPAM. (serious comma splicing in that sentance, im too lazy to fix)
Oh well, atleast it confines the spam to noob board.

But i think the system should be more along the lines of >= 5 posts + lurk for  >=24hrs, 2 hrs aint much.
Course i never lurked logged in, so i prolly dont event have the 2 hrs racked up.

Anyway, i'm off to see if there is anything useful i can contribute in other newbie board threads.

Stopping spammers is admirable, but it causes legitimate new users to have to post unnecessarily--like this.

Heh, this confused me for quite a while since I just joined a couple days ago and could see my replied to notifications but couldn't reply back.  Thought I was going crazy not finding a reply button lol.
(and no I did not post this just to get my post count up, this was my 6th post)


I just joined today, and was stuck in the same confusion as you =)

It makes sense,

You can still view posts you need, and if you want to ask a question in another section, the bar is not too difficult to leap.
Just helps to deter the hooligans  Grin

I don't think the newbie restriction thing is made obvious enough to new signups.
I wasted time with different browsers, checking my email system etc to see if I'd missed an instruction..

Please be a bit more considerate of the newbies who sign up. 

  • Make the newbie posting notice bigger and bolder.
  • Send a confirmation/intro email.
  • put a notice about the newbie restriction status in the profile section too.

Disappointed.  I signed up to make a specific comment on a particular timely issue.
I guess a bit of newbie collateral damage is all part of the war on spam eh.

I have 6 posts and
Total time logged in: 4 hours and 7 minutes,
but i can post in the "newbies" section only.
What's wrong?
---------------------------
Update:
After previous post i get 7 posts and Total time logged in: 4 hours and 11 minutes.
Now I can post and reply in any topics, strange but true.

While understanding the need to restrict spam I think 20 min. is a long long time to make folks wait.  There are better methods out there, and a 5 min. delay for postings would be better.  All I wanted to do is PM someone for now, alas....

Hi,

I don't find these restrictions very useful and it is not clear that it will help in the end : those that want to troll just wait 4 hours and in the mean time post to this thread for example.

Better is IMHO to ban people if they don't behave : black list the e-mail they used and erase their registration. So in order to come on-line again they would have to re-register with a new e-mail address. My guess is they will get bored very soon.

The moderator could send them a warning maybe

A ... n ... y ... w ... a ... y ... s : this was post 3 ...
