The restrictions are understandable. One does need the time first to inform oneself, and there are options for those who are clearly more advanced.

I'm a little annoyed that access via Tor is not allowed, but I understand and accept it.

Hi folks,

I'm Alan and new to this forum (and also new to the Bitcoin mining business).

I have to say that I don't like the "newbie restrictions" since I have an urgent request in a specific thread. A solution would've been a verification email with a code in it or something like that, or a captcha code for these so called "newbies".

Anyway, I guess I have to wait four hours.

Cheers,
Alan

or ask here in a new thread.

I try to be respectful and informed.

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.)


I seem to only be able to reply and not post?

Never mind.  I never would have looked for a post button where this one is located.  My bad.  I did not realize how old this version of SMF was.

Only suggestion is maybe relax the rules about messaging to allow it either instantly or after fewer posts / time? I would really like to message a particular individual but can't for another 4hrs 30 because of these rules

A wild need-to-post appeared!
User uses register. It's moderately effective.
Forum uses newbie restrictions. It's super effective!
User is unable to post. User faints.

This forum has soo much room for improvement. I know the forum was considering to change from SMF to a different forum software, but what is taking them so long?

My vote is to change to vbulletin. Forum revenue will increase, as well its easier for both members and mods. Custom changes are expensive (yet would be cheaper then smf).

With increased revenue potiential, and with less headaches, why is this forum still with SMF?

These restrictions are really really annoying. There are other ways to combat spam. Such as preventing new users from posting working links, restricting signature permissions, preventing them from starting new threads in 99% of the forum, and preventing them to post in 10-20% of the forum are some good ideas. Doing a full forum lockdown, forces us to spam in *this* section and could potentially be impacting on the ability for many newcomers to contribute to the forums.

I agree, you need a good contribute to spam ratio, I just feel your current system could be improved and possibly follow the methods used by many other (and more popular and more spam targeted) forums.

If its not powering up, then its probly completely rooted. But if it does power up (but not boot) then try getting a copy of slitaz, or linux mint as these are operating systems that can run without being installed and can run on a computer with a fried HDD -> these are useless if you want to mine from your laptop, but good enough to use to get online for trolling forums, or whatnot.
