I can understand "why" this is done, but seriously. Give me a pass on the newbie BS. I'm a 34 yr old career IT pro who was building message boards when most of you were surfing AOL (no offense, I used it too).

I think I've earned my medals, scars and what not without having to be subject to a "grace period". lol

The rest of you hooligans, however, need to stay here and read the forums rules and ETIQUETTE posts.
And get off my lawn. That is all.

This counts as a post, right?  o.0

Well, fair enough.
Does it really help, though?

This is an odd policy - I ought to start a thread "introduce yourself here five times". I also noted there is no email verification on the site. Alternately, send .001BTC low priority to the forum to be a full member (i.e. If you can get a bitfaucet payment and send it to the forum, you're not a retard), but that's probably not something easy to add to simple machines forum.

This seems well and good, although slightly tedious to force oneself to make posts in such a limited sub-forum.

And the lack of banning the scammers seems to defeat the purpose of whitelisting newbies.

Seems like a decent idea to me, though having to come up with five good posts in order to weigh in on BTCGuild's recent bizarreness is annoying.

I seem to have managed to collect a negative confirmed rewards over there!

Sorry i did not read all of the posts. here is my two cents... .001 with any kind of gpu is still faly easy so that would not help also because of things like bit faucet it would need to be > .01. sorry IMO email works well most of the time, if thats not good enough then fix the chapta out of 7 ocr programs i tried 5 of them got it right the first time.

I'm afraid I have to correct myself: the 5 (or6) posts are totally ok, but the 4hours are a pain in the ass  Huh
There are issues that I really want to answer to but I guess have to wait and wait and wait...

Yep Me too, some how this computer is only showing me at 2hours and 22 minutes So I'm still a newb.   

Can that time be shortened to 30 minutes?  4 posts and 30 minutes  then you have a chance to post in sections you really want to before they die  Shocked

I would like to reply to this with a sensible post and get on my way to be established.

I think earning your way onto the boards is fair.

I have some technical hardware questions that I need some help with.

thank you all,

*Sigh* I understand the need, I suppose.  I was surprised to find today that while having been able to post in the past, I am no longer able to.  Ironically, the reason for my past posts was rather lame - soliciting for bitcoins because Mt.Gox and other sites were taking too long to verify users.  

I happen to meet the 4 hour criteria, if only because I left myself logged in once while reading forum posts.  I usually just lurk without logging in and have probably spent many days worth of time reading the forums.  I don't post much because usually I figure I just don't have anything that important to say.

Presumably this counts as a post.  So... I suppose I'll find 2 more semi-useful things to comment on before commenting on the one post that I wanted to in the first place.

Sorry for the aimless blathering.  The anti-spam rules are compelling me to spam Smiley

What does it take to post a hardware for sale/trade thread?

Hi all, I understand your motives for this restriction, I ran a forum once myself and had to ban spammers. But honestly, I would prefer solving 10 captchas to your method (if this was already said I'm sorry, but I really don't want to read all 26 newbie pages). So far all my questions are alerady answered, the only reason for me to actually register ist that I want to contact one of your board members.
Going to search for four reasonable posts now ...
