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 ...


I'm a Bitcoin Begger (I guess that's the lowest status possible).
Anyways  : thanks upfront to those that send (micro)bitcoins to : 1LAXoSGTe6huwu2KZhUw3hgTsj2tzkTJo4

Good ideal, sending PM's shouldn't be restricted imho. (specially if it's a time sensitive PM)

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.

If you have really good posts, you can post a request for preemptive whitelisting in the appropriate topic.

Also:
- You must have made one post in order to send PMs.
- You need 10 posts to put a link in your signature.
- You need 50 posts to put an image in your signature.

guess we need to make 5 posts in the newbie section then

Thanks for establishing some criteria (however annoying it is for us real users).

Is it possible to use a system like Akismet instead of imposing these restrictions on new users?  You are probably turning people away who would be interested in engaging with the community because of these restrictions.

As annoying is this noob place is, I commend your idea and wish more forums had this sort of thing.  Nice to not have mega spammed forums!  2nd post!  WOOT!

NOTE: Even though my username is bitcoin-rigs.com, I let the domain run out and now it is owned by someone trying to sell it for rip-off prices.  I am not the one selling it and I have no control of it :-(

Good to see there are some rules in place here, but personally I find the 50 post limit for the images a bit overkill.
I guess most 'new' users will be proud of their hash rates in 'their' pool and would like to show off with a nice image (like me)  Wink

But then again, this is probably more about bandwith then just newbies...

solid ideas, too bad i have been subject to these, despite being the oldest member of the forum, and a loyal supporter of the bitcoin idea since the start.

Collector's account only. NO TRANSACTIONS EVER.
