Yeah, this 4 hours of logged in time is a sort of bizarre account restriction.

I don't think so. It means you have to invest a significant amount of time to be able to freely participate so that limits the amount of people creating throwaways to troll.

So I'm logged in... but the timer isn't ticking down...

How does this work?
Yeah, I had Total time logged in: 1 hours and 20 minutes more than an hour ago, but now it still shows just 1 hours and 40 minutes.

Does it reset to zero after I log off, close the browser or shut down the PC?

No, it doesn't..it keeps track of how much you spent online before leaving the forum

the nasty thing about this is when you start reading a lot and forget to hit the refresh button Sad

Define "leaving".

A hour went by, but the counter shows only 3 minutes more than then.

It can tell when you're active, not just having a window open and the site up.

Looking at the window?
Scrolling it up and down?
Clicking links?
Refreshing the same page over an over again?
How often?

I think the restrictions are reasonable. Takes awhile to figure out what bitcoins are all about, etc.

If anything, I'd probably up the minimum time a bit before newbies can go elsewhere. "Lurk and learn" is always a good philosophy.

It's a good idea and I guess it weeds out a lot of scammers/idiots that just want to troll.

Definitely a good idea. Just waiting for the ten minutes to swing back around again.

Thanks for explaining the restrictions. I now can't wait to get out from the Newbie section. Just a few more hours and useless posts!
